Now I know that what I am about to tell you about didn’t technically happen in the summer, but this event, for me, did mark the end of mine. This past Saturday I went to a Brantley Gilbert concert, and it was beyond fun. Not only did Brantley Gilbert perform that night, and also a band called Black Stone Cherry, that I have never heard of, and also Tyler Farr, who I have of course heard of, and obviously Brantley Gilbert.

I had been waiting for this concert since the beginning of summer; in fact, I have been waiting for this concert since the end of last school year. I was invited to go by my boyfriend Brandon and his family. At first I thought he was just messing around with me, and I started to get upset with him because he kept at it for so long until finally I asked his dad about it, and to my surprise, he wasn’t kidding. I asked my parents if I was able to go, and you know when something big like this comes up that good behavior is always key. The answer was yes, but of course there were stipulations. The rules that I have in place for me are not hard to follow, but with a mouth and attitude like mine, sometimes I would find myself in a little bit of trouble, and all my mom would have to say is, “Lanie how about that Brantley Gilbert concert you’re supposed to be going to,” and that was it from me.

Some time passed and it was finally the month of the concert. A month may seem kind of long to some people, but when the concert is on the fifth of the month, it didn’t seem long at all. I had gotten through the end of the school year and all of summer now here I am down to my last five days, and I was ecstatic. There it was, the time for the concert had finally come and I was ready for it. I count the days go by as if I were counting numbers on a chalkboard: Day one, day two, day three, day four, and at last, day five.

I woke up bright and early ready for this day to begin. I took a shower, got dressed, did my makeup a little fancy, slipped on my boots, and I was ready to go. Little did I know it still wasn’t even close to being time to leave. The anticipation was killing me, but assuredly the time had come, and I was more than ready to hop in the car and drive for an hour and a half to get to Klipsch Music Center. We drove and drove for what seemed like forever until at last, we arrived. We parked the car and sat there for about fifteen minutes before we began to walk up, and once we did my stomach got butterflies over the fact that I was even in the same vicinity as Brantley Gilbert. Then began the wait.

By the time we walked up there it was, five o’clock in the afternoon, and they didn’t let anyone in until 6:30, so there we stood, in a line, for an hour and a half, but it was all worth it. Once they let us in we ran to make sure we got a good spot on the lawn, and I’m not over exaggerating when I say we ran because that is exactly what we did. We got our spot on the lawn and the concert began. First on was Black Stone Cherry, and then there was Tyler Farr, and again with the anticipation, but after him was Brantley Gilbert, and everyone went wild. It was a little crazy, and you would think a country concert wouldn’t be that bad, but I actually asked one of the security guards, and to my surprise they said that the country concerts were even worse than the metal concerts.

The night had come to an end, and I of course wasn’t ready to leave yet, but there wasn’t much else to do now other than go home. It seemed like the concert was over just about as fast as my summer, but every bit of everything that happened was all worth it, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
