Gary Allan Y'all

I never say y'all and I don't listen to much country music these days either. But back when I lived with my Texan roommate and BFF, Ellie, I learned how to appreciate a 6 foot Texas flag being in my kitchen, along with some good old fashioned twang. Back then, we started a small obession with a country singer named Gary Allan.

In the summer of 2001 he came to Utah, and Ellie got us free tickets through her connections back in Texas. While we were waiting for the concert to start, a guy from a radio station asked us if we wanted to meet Gary Allan. Once we realilzed he was serious we just about died right there. We met him and took a picture, and then started screaming when we walked away. We were still within earshot so there were some laughs coming from Gary and his groupies. Anyway, I don't think we stopped talking about that night for a very long time. Here is my scrapbook page about it...

Recently I noticed Gary Allan was going to be here again, for the Utah State Fair. Ellie and I got tickets and Ben watched the kids for my night of freedom. We weren't as close as we were last time, and we didn't get to meet him, but it was still AWESOME. He seriously gives an amazing concert. Maybe part of the reason I like him is because he's not from Nashville - he grew up in California.

Ellie shot some video of the concert so I'll add my favorite song to this post as soon as I get it. I know you will all be waiting on pins and needles.

Thanks Tiffani, but I USED to scrapbook. This is one of my very early pages when I first started. I was all caught up until the twins were born. I haven't even gotten my stuff out once since they came. I want to get back into it though. Someday, right?
