Sugarland Concert!

*If you missed yesterday's post about my Hat Attack giveaway, go here to enter! Winner gets to select their very favorite hat. Giveaway opened until next Tuesday.
Happy Thursday all!
I have been dying to tell you all about the Sugarland concert and wanted to give it a proper re-cap because it was just so awesome.
Let's start with having to pick up the tickets at will call, my husband's best friend, Joey, got us the tickets for the four of us, so me, Sean, Joey and his wife, Nicole. We got the tickets at will call and it happened so fast that Nicole looked at the tickets and said standing room only. I thought that meant in the back of the ampitheatre but the employees of the Santa Barbara bowl where the concert said it was the front section, closest to the stage! Guess who let out a little bit of a shriek of excitement?!

So we got to the concert a bit late in the middle of Lauren Alaina performing, she is super cute by the way.


We missed the opening act, Canaan Smith, has anyone heard of him by the way?
So Lauren Alaina ends and we try to wait as patiently as we coud while the stage is set for Sugarland, their curtain comes down and then after a little bit, I peek to the side of the curtain and there she was, ready to come on stage!

Before I continue, I must mention how cute Jennifer Nettles was in her concert outfit, she was definitely print mixing, a white and black striped blouse with a printed denim look, she rocked it!

They played one of my favorite song, Stuck Like Glue early in the beginning of their concert. They handed out a guitar to a member of the audience, they selected a 10 year old to come up and help keep the beat to one of their songs. 
Jennifer brought out both of her contestants from her show, Duets, it was awesome to see her perform with them and now I have to watch the show after seeing her perform with both of them. She brought both J  Rome and John Glosson.

Did anyone watch the show last week? The second episode comes on tonight.
A local radio station held a contest and the prize with to sing one of Sugarland's songs on stage and it was such a sweet performance by a 12 year old.
During the encore, the guitarist from the band the Eurythmics came out an Jennifer sang the song, Here Comes the Rain Again.
You know that song!

All in all, it was a great concert! Oh, I forgot to mention they took fan's request either with postcard with the name of the song written on them, which the band collected onstage or they asked for songs via Twitter. Sugarland puts on a great concert, they are very energetic and after seeing them in concert you can see where the quirky, fun energy in her songs comes from, definitely Jennifer. 
Here are a few photos of the evening!

As for Canaan, I have never met him but he is good friends with my best friend Meagan Rae. She lives in Nash and is a singer as well!

Aren't they awesome!! Looks like you all had a fabulous time.

I did watch Duets and it was okay. I feel like they searched America and that's the best they could find?! LOL The people on Idol and The Voice are much better? Anyway, Jennifer's team though is the strongest!

Brooke Shemwell said...
