A Night With Carrie Underwood
Jerry bought me tickets for my birthday to this concert and I have to say, it was the best present ever! I've never considered myself a huge concert lover. Usually I just went to concerts to hang out with my friends and you'd certainly NEVER catch me shouting and screaming with overjoyment. But I have to admit, this time was different. We got there in the middle of Little Bigtown's performance and they sounded really good but when they were finished and they put up the 5 minute countdown clock for Carrie, I felt my heart starting to beat really fast and really loud. It was really weird. Honestly, I don't know that I've ever been that excited for anything in my entire life. As the clock counted further and further down, my heart pounded faster and faster. I felt like a silly little teenager. When it hit the one minute mark the crowd went insane! The band started to play and when she emerged from the floor in her little superstar stance, yep, I screamed and jumped up and down. She was so amazing! She looked and sounded so beautiful. I know, I'm a huge cheeseball but I've been a fan of hers since the very beginning. The first time I saw her on American Idol, my mom and I looked at each other and said "she's gonna win" and that she did! I just can't even believe how much she's done since then. Oh, and when she asked a sweet little girl from the audience to come up and help her sing All American Girl I thought I was going to die. This girl looked so scared and yet she got up there and sang her heart out. It was awesome! What a dream come true for her. I seriously was holding back the tears. And today, my ears still hurt from the kids sitting behind us. I've never heard a scream so loud in my entire life. And the boys she came with I think were even more excited than her. They just kept repeating "I love you, Carrie! I - LOVE - YOU!" It made me and Jer laugh! Anyway, the least to say, Jer and I had a spectacular night. Thanks, Hunny Buns! I love ya!
