Fabulous Girls Night Out!

!WARNING! This post is very long with lots of pictures. You are in for a read, just wanted to let you know!

A few months ago, I told you guys about the Birthday/Christmas gift that the hubby bought me. Well, for those of you who don't know what I am talking about, he bought me two tickets to a Brad Paisley show in Denver. The main reason that I wanted to go was to see Scotty McCreery. I love that boy!! His voice melts my heart!

Anywho, last night was the show and all I can say is OH MY GOSH!! I have never been to a concert that amazing. We didn't have the best seats, but we weren't in the nose bleeds so I guess I can't complain. Oh my gosh, I am so excited to tell you guys all about this so that I can relive every moment!!

Okay so the bestie Lou and I drove to Denver and stopped at one of the big malls in Denver on our way up there. I had to pick up my ring from the jeweler and we decided to get food. Once we were done with that, we were on our way to the concert. Once we got there, we got to our seats and were ready for the show to start.

Scotty was up first. I was kind of disappointed with this because I knew that he wouldn't be on the stage for long. But when he came out and started singing, I didn't care. I was too focused on him and enjoying every second of him on the stage. I may have screamed like a little teenage girl a few times while he was out on stage. Like I said earlier, his voice just melts my heart. 

Scotty was absolutely amazing!! I can't believe how flawless he sounded. And I can not wait for him to come back to Denver. 

After Scotty was done being amazing, it was time for a set change. After about twenty minutes, the next band was up. And who was it? The Band Perry!! Another amazing talent!! I loved The Band Perry before we saw them, but I love them even more now. They were absolutely amazing and they had so much energy and were so much fun to watch.

I have to say that my favorite part of their set was when they started singing "Fat Bottom Girls" by Queen. That is one of my favorite songs, so hearing them sing it and sing it well, was amazeballs!! They also had mentioned that they would be at a certain section at the end of the show to meet the fans and sign autographs so we were definitely planning on doing that. 

Once their set was over, it was time for another set change so that Brad Paisley could come out. We decided that we should go to the merch table and see if there was anything that we wanted before Brad came out. We fought through the crowd at the merch table and walked away with small photos of each performer. We then fought our way back through the crowds so that we could take our seats for the final act. 

Brad Paisley soon came out and little did we know, we were in for an amazing night full of surprises. He started off the show and was amazing from the start. He is amazing on the guitar and his voice was amazing. He is so down to earth and just loves to be out their with his fans. At one point in the beginning of the show he was out on one of the runway stages in the middle of the crowd and he had his electric guitar slung over his shoulder and he had an acoustic guitar that he was playing for the first few chords of a song. All of a sudden he takes the acoustic guitar off and hands it to this little girl that was in the crowd around the stage. Crazy, I know!! That just seems like the kind of guy he is.

Brad Paisley even had Scotty McCreery come back out on stage and help him sing his song "Celebrity". It was awesome seeing Scotty up there with Brad. What was even funnier was that Brad had a big head Brad come out during this song too. If you have ever heard the song "Celebrity" you will understand this. It was definitely awesome.

About this time in the show I turned to Lou and I said that the only thing that could make this night any better was if Tim Tebow were there and came out on stage. Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with Tim Tebow, not only is he gorgeous, but he is just a good Christian and I love that about him. No worries, the hubby knows and there was an arrangement made before we got married, haha, just kidding! Anywho, I continued to tell Lou that it wouldn't surprise me if he was there because he loves country music and he lives in Denver. And no joke, this happened...

As soon as I realized what they were doing, I started freaking out. I turned to Lou and started screaming. I kept saying, "They are Tebowing. He is here!! Oh my gosh, oh my gosh" I am not going to lie, I turned into a  teenage girl at this point. And then of course, Brad Paisley actually brought him out on stage. The place went absolutely nuts! I was jumping up and down and screaming like a little girl. I was so flippin excited that I was shaking. I could barely hold my camera and I just kept screaming. I know, I know, I was again acting like a teenage girl. I couldn't help it though. I mean it's Tim Tebow. Agghhhhhh!! I still can't get over it.

Tim Tebow helped Brad Paisley sing a few lines of "I'm Still A Guy" and then he went off stage. He wasn't the greatest singer, but you could tell that the crowd enjoyed him being there. I know that I definitely did. This made the night even more amazing and I couldn't believe that it actually happened.

The night continued with Kimberly Perry and the rest of The Band Perry coming out and helping Brad sing "Whiskey Lullabye". It was definitely awesome. She has such a great voice and such a great stage presence.

And just when we thought the night couldn't get any better, Brad started playing "You Remind Me". I looked at Lou and we both were wondering who was going to sing Carrie Underwood's part and then she walked out. Freaking Carrie Underwood walked out on stage and started singing. Are you kidding me? How many more amazing people were we going to get to see? We were ecstatic. She was amazing and she looked flawless!

And then a few songs later and the show was over. It was so amazing! I have to say that before this concert I was a fan of Brad Paisley's but never to the extent where I felt the need to buy his albums. That is not the case anymore. His performance out there was so fantastic that I am now a full fledged fan! We had such a great time and I don't know that any concert will ever top this one. I had never been to a country concert of this magnitude, but all I can say is WOW!!

Once the show was over we rushed out to the section that The Band Perry said they would be at so that we could go meet them and have them sign our small pictures that we bought. The line was humongous, but we didn't care. We waited. And it was well worth the wait.

Right before they signed our stuff

They were awesome. They stayed and signed every single persons items that were in line. This made me love them even more. If you guys want to see a video of them coming up to us and signing stuff, you will have to go to my facebook and check it out here. I couldn't get it to upload on here. 

To say the least, this was an amazing night out with my best friend. We had a blast and I don't know how we will ever top this, but we will sure try to. So I want to say thank you to my hubby again for buying us the tickets. And thanks to Lou for going with me and putting up with my ridiculous teenage girl screaming when Tim Tebow came out, haha! Love you Lou!

I hope that you guys had a great weekend, I know that I did. I definitely slept in today and have been trying to recoup from last night all day, it definitely took a lot out of me. Hopefully I will be able to start doing wedding recaps soon. I am still waiting on pictures. 

Until then,

P.S. I know that I used the word "amazing" a lot in this post, but it truly was amazing!! Haha! Don't judge me!
