Little Moments

Last Thursday Brad Paisely came to play at the O'Connell Center. Dave and I had tickets in the second section, straight out from the stage. Pretty exciting, huh? Well, little did we know that it was going to be even more exciting than that! :) As we approached Gate 1, there was an outside stage set up and a DJ asking for people to enter into a contest to win FRONT ROW tickets to the concert. All of the sudden, everyone Dave and I were with, including Dave, begin shouting my name and pointing hysterically at me. A few seconds later, I was entered into a singing contest with one other girl. We each had to choose a Brad Paisley song, get up on stage one at a time, and sing our best. The audience would vote to determine who would win. She chose to sing "Online" and I chose to sing "Little Moments." It was actually pretty fun and for a minute I wished I was a really talented musician/singer and could do this for a living, but God didn't bless me that way. :) However, he did bless me with the loudest applause and I won the FRONT ROW tickets. It was awesome. I have never been so close to the stage before. We could literally touch the stage and I even got to touch his hand. :) I never realized what a talented person he is. Not only is he the lead singer of his band, but he is the lead guitarist as well. Dave and I were definitely impressed. Even though you couldn't be there to enjoy the show with us, we hope you enjoy the pictures! :)

Brad had many more guitars that he used as well. He is in to guitar fashion. :)
