Just Another Normal, Crazy Weeknight In Nashville
I’ve been known to go to Nashville and run into some of my favorite stars; Luke Bryan or Dierks Bentley anyone?!? Ha! Well, last night we had band practice and a simple attempt at getting some supper turned into a pretty cool chain of events!We practice at Studio 19, off of West End. There are two little bars right next to it, Winner’s and Loser’s. (I swear, I couldn’t make that up!) So, I called in some food to eat on the trip back. (Don’t lecture me right now on eating in the car, I’m trying to tell you a story, ha!)
As lots of y’all know, I’m a HUGE Randy Rogers Band fan… like scary huge! I look up to leave and who do I see??? Brady Black!! (He’s the fiddle player for the band.) Needless to say, I was excited! That may be the understatement of the year, I kinda flipped out! Not to his face, if course, that wouldn’t be professional of me.
Well, off we go into Loser’s Bar and Grill and who do I run into before I can even talk to Brady? My new friend and upcoming country artist, Jon Pardi! Ha, I was crackin up! So, talked to him for a minute or two and he introduced us to Brady. Brady then asked us to sit with him…oh my goodness! Ha! The lead singer of the band, Randy Rogers himself comes over next and says hi!
Next thing we know, some big guy in a Titans sweatshirt sticks his hand out and says, “Hi, I’m Rob.” I don’t think anything about it , so we just chat for a second, then he walks off. Brady, my new BFF asks if I like football, well of course I like football! Then, he tells me that that guy was Rob Bironas, kicker for the Tennessee Titans! Haha! Could this night get any better you ask??? Why, yes, it could!
I notice this big dude walking over to the stage area and I’m pretty sure I know who he is… CHRIS YOUNG!!
No, I’m not kidding! He starting playing and the first song he played was “Tomorrow”. Recent number one hit, “Tomorrow”! He was AMAZING! Such a great singer, I really was in awe. He also sang a few others including Keith Whitley’s “Miami My Amy”. He really was great, such a cool experience!
So, there you have it…just another normal, crazy weeknight in Nashville. Jaclyn style!
