They Cheered As I Walked Up, But Not Exactly FOR Me

We smiled and nodded as we drove past the police barricade keeping commoners out of the area. The church, just one block over had an empty parking space right in front. Thank you, God.

Walking downhill in heels is torturous, not to mention, dangerous. At this point, I put on my Plan B shoes. Lower heeled, but sensible shoes. Just like a lesbian. We trek off down the hill to find two restaurants. The first is Italian, but the second is an unknown, PM of the Belmont area.

Amazing, but it's not crowded. They seat us and bring us a bottle of wine, two salads, Florida and California rolls, Peking Duck Spring Rolls and have us out of there in 3o minutes. The food was fantastic, but the Passionfruit Sangria was to die for! I will be back.

We ran up the hill that we'd just sauntered down to get to our seats. We were to the left of the stage, but the venue was so small that all of the seats were wonderful. It was THE most amazing concert that I've ever been to. Everyone was on that night. Or maybe it was the Passionfruit Sangria, but I had a fabulous time.

My favorite, Taylor Swift. She rocked the house!

Oddest sighting, Snoop Dogg. WTF? Apparently, he has a new country song, My Medicine, dedicated to Johnny Cash. Mkay. The local radio was playing it and discussing it this afternoon and I must admit to bobbing my head to the beat, God help me.


Absolutely, this was a night to remember! My buddy knew all the stars by name and emceed the walk-bys for me. Otherwise, I would have been clueless most of the time. Here's hoping she asks me again next year!

I am so jealous!!! May I touch you just knowing you were that close to all of them? I promise not to touch the boob, that is just nasty LOL.

Jay said...

I'm not a country music fan, but I would definitely go to something like that if I got the chance!

Did they allow cameras inside? I was hoping for some hot Carrie Underwood action. LOL

Anyway, glad you had a good time. The whole thing looks like a big party.

Jen said...

. . . . and YOUR picture (from the CMT award night) is where exactly? ? ? !

hmpf.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Eric: Agreed! And you may! ;)

Jay: She was lovely as per usual. Hers was the last song complete with pyrotechnics, streamers AND confetti! Grande Finale, indeed! She asked about you.

Jen: Um, I forgot to take one? And my buddy is a photographer, duh!

Snoop??? C & W??? I'm going to have to check that out! I'm glad y'all had a great time!!

BostonPobble said...

I am SO glad you had a good time and it was as wonderful as you had hoped it would be.

A note to Snoop Dog, though ~ one country song doesn't mean you gotta show up at the CMAs. ;)

Amorous Rocker said...

Sounds like you had a great time! I love Taylor Swift, she's too cute and most of her songs are good ones. Snoop Dogg with a country song? I must check that out, lol.

Freakazojd said...

Awesome, that sounds like it was a great night!!
I like Snoop Dogg...I don't know...there's something feline about him that is intriguing somehow. Makes NO sense, I know, haha!

Seamus said...

Had to do a double take at Snoop Dog at the awards!

buffalodickdy said...

Wow- you get to go everywhere! Last time I saw someone famous, they spoke to me! They said; "Get out of the way"...

Matt-Man said...

Glad to hear that you had a good time. I wanna party with the Snoopster. Cheers!!

Leighann said...

That's so cool!

Do I really need to tell you that Taylor Swift doesn't have a thing on Carrie??

coffeypot said...

What a trip! I want to go with you and your friend next time. I love stuff like that. The entertainers have to be right on because they are playing to their toughest crowd - their peers. How about pictures of yourself?

Raven said...

That's just too cool! I watched, but didn't see you. Well actually I recorded it on my DVR and fast forwarded through the commercials and other PIA things. Maybe next year!

Tink said...

I can't believe there's no picture of you on here! Still... Awesome night. :)
