A couple weeks ago, Erin and I went to Jill's house for dinner. On the drive over, I heard an ad on the radio that was promoting a Bucky Covington concert. For those of you who don't know, he was on the 5th season of Amercian Idol--he placed 8th overall. Anyway, I felt kind of geeky wanting to go to the concert, but when I got to Jill's, I asked Erin what she was doing on September 3. Cautiously, she asked, "Going to Bullshooters to see Bucky Covington??" We must have heard the same ad on the radio! Anyway, we decided to get tickets, so on Friday night, we went. We were playing darts in between musical acts, and all of a sudden this older guy from a radio station came up to us and said, "Are you girls the backstagers?" Obviously we weren't, but jokingly we said, "We could be." That's all it took. He said, "Fair enough," and he brought us to the line to meet Bucky Covington. To be honest, I felt kind of guilty, because there were people in line who had either paid money to meet him or had won contests for it, but Erin and I just got randomly plucked out of the crowd. Eh, well, when ya got it, ya got it, right?! :) Anyway, we waited in line, and then we got a little bit nervous. People were shuffled into a room, the door was shut, and then you never saw them come back out. We wondered if we were about to get murdered. When we got to the front of the line, they took us in the room, and people from the radio station immediately started taking our pictures. Supposedly our pictures will be posted on their website...Pretty sure I didn't look attractive in one single photo. It felt like paparazzi, so I awkwardly asked Bucky if that's what his life is like every day. He chuckled and said yes. So, we got our picture with him (see below), and then they shuffled us out a different door. We were literally led through the back beer cooler (which we asked if we could stay in-they said no), and then we came out some different door. Sneaky, I tell ya! All in all, we had a pretty good time! And on top of that, Erin just passed her 4th and final CPA exam, so it was a good night to celebrate. Wahoo!

Meeting Bucky in the infamous back room
We were really excited after meeting him. :)
