Oh Kenny! Oh Tim!

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing the Brothers of the Sun tour, which was AMAZING! This is the Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney tour. While I'm not a huge fan of country music as a whole, I do LOVE Tim McGraw. A lot.

After 2 opening acts, Time played for about 90 minutes, then Kenny did the same, then they performed together for about a half hour. It was awesome and so much fun! These guys are really good and know how to give a kick ass concert, for sure!

We also had great seats- we were at stage level about at the center of the arena. I went with Photographer, her daughter and some of her friends. I actually knew everyone and the 6 of us women had a great time! I'm go glad I had this chance to see Tim McGraw. And while I'm not a huge fan of Kenny, I have to say this: I saw him in my hometown in 1999 in a venue that holds 300 people. And then last night he was playing to a packed stadium of around 70,000. Holy wow Batman!

It was also a pretty good crowd. People were nice and having a good time, lots of drinking, singing, and dancing. The woman behind us, though, had a REALLY good time. She drank so much that when Kenny came on stage she sat down. And then fell asleep. Through his entire set. She woke up when Tim came back on stage and she swayed and staggered and we though she might fall down or puke on us but instead, she staggered out of the aisle and left. I can't believe she slept through a CONCERT! My ears are still ringing today and she slept?!?

I couldn't smuggle in a good camera so I took pictures with my phone. I wish I was standing next to Tim but...

And here's Kenny:

And my souvenir t-shirt and cup:

Here's the official video of one of my fav Tim songs that he performed last night:

Again, it was a great night and so much fun! these guys are fabulous performers and love their fans, and the fans do love them, me included!
