Well, I finally made it to the concert… I was an hour late. Missed a newcomer and the first couple of songs by Trace Adkins. I did get there in time to hear “Honky Tonk,” and that was so worth it! Toby Keith puts on an amazing show too… He performed for more than two hours, just incredible. I was so impressed with his band and the way they all interact with each other. It is so easy to tell that they love what they are doing. I had a lot of favorites from his show.. But I think the absolute best was the encore. He played “American Soldier” and “Country Girl,” I admit, I cried. It was super cool when he brought some of the Marines from the crowd up onto the stage… There was a girl who had a tattoo of the fallen soldier… The boots, gun and helmet. So overwhelming. Leaving, it took me an hour to get out of the parking lot. I wonder what the final count for number of attendees will be… There looked like there were thousands of people there… And I could hear the songs being sung by the crowd, even when I was in the parking lot. Completely awesome. I bought my ticket last minute, so I didn’t really think I would have a phenomenal seat.. But I could see the sweat rolling off the musicians. (A little gross, I know, but the seats were that close!) I would definitely see them in concert again, without hesitation.
