Well hello there, blog! It’s been quite some time, eh? That is likely because most of my time is spent working and my blog would look like this:
“I went to sporting events.”
Not that I’m complaining about that, because let’s be honest- my job rocks. But I do on occasion like to do things that have nothing to do with sports. Like attend an impromptu Blake Shelton concert on a Thursday night.
About two and a half weeks ago I was driving back from lunch and heard on the radio “Blake Shelton is playing a FREE concert tonight at the Blind Horse Saloon!” No time. No details. I immediately texted my coworker, Julia, and was like “DID YOU HEAR FREE BLAKE SHELTON CONCERT?!?” After a little debate we decided that we should at least TRY to get in- why not?! Fortunately we had the next day off for Spring Break.
Immediately after work we hopped in the car and headed to Greenville, hoping that we weren’t too late. We got there about 5:40pm and the. line. was. huge. The news even had a helicopter flying overhead. After about an hour of waiting in line, we were finally in. And SO excited!
It was crowded, obviously, but not as bad as I expected. It was a decent size bar but there wasn’t really a bad seat in the house! We started out near the back
but slowly got closer
until we were finally only about 30 feet away.
Blake is a great singer and we loved all of his songs, but what made it so special was that it wasn’t like a concert at all. Blake sang a lot of covers in addition to his own stuff- not everybody gets to see that! And the man took only took one two song break! It was incredible and I’m so glad we decided to go.
