Country Financial and their Road Trips & Guitar Picks program, and we had a fantastic time!
After everyone had the chance to have a picture with Jason, he and 2 of his band members treated us all to a private rendition of "Big Green Tractor" and then did a brief Q&A session. He shared that his musical influences were Alabama and Lynrd Skynrd and also that his dad helped him learn guitar chords by writing them out on a piece of notebook paper.
He headed off to get ready for his concert, while we ate a few more appetizers and had another drink. We signed the big poster for his concert tour. Soon, we were encouraged to head to our seats so we did. The Cricket Pavilion is an outdoor venue, so I was glad we grabbed a couple water bottles to take to our seats!
We sat next to the nicest couple (he is a VP at Country Financial, and his wife was so friendly & fun! I really enjoyed sharing the concert with them.) and thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Jason and his band were full of energy and full of smiles throughout the concert. Everyone enjoyed their music and there was plenty of dancing and singing along. The songs that seemed to have the biggest crowd reaction were "She's Country" and "Big Green Tractor." It was fun when they ended their set with Kid Rock's "Cowboy."
We had an absolutely wonderful night, and feel very fortunate that we were given this opportunity. The only thing that could have made the night better is if our kids could have joined us. They all love music, and I think Nate would have been in awe of Jason's acoustic guitar. We did get them t-shirts, though, which they were happy to model!
You can visit the Road Trips & Guitar Picks website and enter for a chance to win a trip to see Jason Aldean or Jewel in concert! I know you would have a fabulous time! Also, visit the website for information about both artists and backstage information about their concerts.
*Disclosure: In exchange for posting, I received 2 tickets for the backstage event and concert from Country Financial and Road Trips & Guitar Picks.*
