Rascal Flatts

So... as many of you know, this year I became a proud member of the Rascal Flatts "Dog Pound" fan club. Yes... that's right, I love them. I think our first month of marriage, Charles got a little offended at the frequency of which I told him about my Rascal Flatts dreams. They are my favorite, I have been trying to tone it down since Charles has pointed out the obsession. I realized when I sent in an email to the "Super Fan" contest... things were getting out of hand. We did, however, benefit from the obsession last Friday with awesome seats at their concert. As our Valentine's gifts we got tickets... yes, my husband is a good sport. We didn't know where our seats were until we got there Friday, and ended up on the 17th row. It was a blast!! I think I liked it more than Charles, but it was a lot of fun to be there together. We got our groove on, sang our hearts out, and lost our hearing... but here are some pictures to show the fun we had.

Before they came on... I told Charles to "look excited"

Their entrance... pretty sweet effects!

The marvels themselves... nominated for SIX academy of country music awards this year!!

They had this cool moving platform that moved from the front of the arena to the back, went right over our heads!!

This was their little stage in the back
The encore... Life is a Highway... we snuck up closer!
After it was all over... Charles held back the tears just for this shot :)

We had a lot of fun, the show was really elaborate, they had some pretty sweet effects, like fireworks, confetti at the end in exploded in the whole arena, and the moving platform. They had a huge screen behind them and the stage was surrounded by little screens that went off of each other. I don't know if that made sense, but it was tons of fun!!! Now... time to start my Flatts anonymous program... wish me luck!

Heather, I like rascal flats too! (Noticed I clarified with the word "like", not quite the same as "love".) That must have been a great concert!
