Dirt Road Diaries

I can honestly say that dreams do come true, and let me tell you why. Last week I (along with hundreds of other people) was being sang to by this gorgeous man ♥

He was supposed to  perform in Abuquerque, NM I believe back in July but the concert got canceled due to the weather so it got rescheduled for September 22. When I heard he was coming the first time around it was a week before the concert and all the tickets were all sold out. I was soooooo bummed out. About a month later I learned from my best friend that his coworker was selling 2 tickets to Luke Bryan. The previous concert got postponed and the tickets bought for that concert were going to be valid for the one on September 22. Without any hesitation I bought the tickets, and to be honest it was one of the BEST decisions that I have ever made. 

When the day of the concert came and I was pumped! I had never been to Albuquerque and hadn't been to a concert in YEARS!!! But after the first hour on the road I started to get antsy, it was my first time driving longer than my commute to school/work (which is about 40 minutes to an hour) and the trip was between 4-5 hours. I know it may not sound far but I have never driven my car for that long, I am usually on the passenger side reading a book or enjoying the view. So being the driver kinda sucked, but the trip was so worth it!

Once we checked in at the hotel we got ready and went to eat before the concert. That's when we noticed that the sky was too cloudy, *oh uh* I thought. Then sure enough when we left the restaurant it started to sprinkle and it was pouring when we hit the freeway. Once we parked it had stopped raining, but it started to sprinkle again when we were in line to get inside but then it stopped once we were inside.

It was soo annoying and the freaking clouds were pissing me off!

They couldn't make up their minds, they were just teasing us. And sure enough when the opening act (Thompson Square) started doing their number it started to sprinkle and little by little it started to increase until it started to downpour on us. Oh did I happened to mention that the concert was OUTDOORS?!?! We got soaked, we were freezing, and I was starting to lose my damn mind. But after an eternity (or an hour, hour and a half) the rain finally stopped and the concert took place.

And once it started I screamed my little heart out!!

It was such an AMAZING concert, here are some pics and videos from the show :)

When he busted out the piano and sang this song I almost fainted., I am SOOO obsessed with this song right now!! ♥


I posted this pictures on instagram a couple of weeks ago, I am going to share it here again just in case you missed it.


And yes, I am sharing it because that's EXACTLY how he makes me feel! I am SOO gonna go and see him again! And this time I am gonna make sure to get closer seats :)


Ps. This is part 1 of my 2 day mini vacation. Part 2 and 3 will be coming soon to a blog near you ;)
