Rascal Flatts Facts

Firstly, just a quick shout out to our good friend Derrick Stewart who TOTALLY hooks us up with good concert tickets all the time. When I heard Rascal Flatts was coming to town again, I asked Tyler to see if we could double date with Sherry and Derrick (since we also LOVE them as people even without their fun tickets!) cuz they're one of my favorite groups. AND Derrick was another guy who took his girls to the Hannah Montana concert, so that let's you know what kind of a guy he is, sooo, HOLLA Derrick!

Here's the facts:

I was still SOO sick. Seriously, don't I look green? I was able to function, but I was coughing and had a runny nose the whole night. You can tell my nose is raw in the photo and how thrilled Tyler is that I'm making him pose for a picture, huh!?

Derrick ended up going hunting the weekend of the concert, so we missed the double date with the Stewarts. While that was a bummer, we found some worthy replacements, and we took my sister and Kevin. They're fans, and we all had a good time.
Kelly Pickler opened for Rascal Flatts and she was cute and pretty good. She's teensy tiny and was POUR-RED into her clothes. She was having a hard time keeping her microphone pack in her back pocket. And she took her cute shoes off after the second song. I kept getting distracted by how dirty her feet must be throughout her set. She talked a lot, too, but was cute.

The set for the main show was pretty amazing. Probably one of the best I've seen in a while. There was a mini-stage in the middle of the venue and a bridge that lowered and raised so they could get out "with the people."
The boys put on a good show. We had heard a couple different things going both ways about the show, so we were pleasantly surprised about how good it was. They said something at the beginning of the concert about wanting to win fan favorite at the Country Music Awards, so maybe they were working it harder than they normally would.

Pretty much we had a great time. Other than the chic who spilled beer down Kevin's back, the people around us were really entertaining. I did enjoy all the songs they sang and thought the whole show was awesome. There was even a guy who proposed to his girlfriend on stage; which was cool. So, thanks again, Derrick. I'm glad I didn't die that week so I could make it to the show. Rock on Rascal Flatts!

I have to say we too have enjoyed a Rascal Flatts concert and coincidentaly courtesy of Derrick Stewart. It was fun but when you said they must have been trying a little harder than usual I think you're right! Thay totally sucked when we saw them, must've been an off night! Oh well always good to get out without kids, right!

They did have an awesome stage though and the actual show was great for us, just not the singing, but who cares about that!!!

The two country bands I know you like, I'm assuming you like Rascal Flatt's, I can't stand. Didn't you just want to tell him to stop whining!
