That Time I (Unknowingly) Met A Country Singer*

Scene: My friend and I are walking up to the bar, excited to see a concert of one of my favorite country singers, Craig Morgan. Enter, Guy on Motorcycle (GOM)

GOM: Hey ladies, what's going on here tonight?

Friend: Craig Morgan is having a concert.

GOM: What does he sing?

Both of us: Country music.

GOM: I know, I meant what songs?

(Friend looks at me to answer, since I am the semi-obsessed fan)

Little Bit of Life, International Harvester, God Must Really Love Me

GOM: I see. Hope you girls have a good time!

(We continue on to the entrance of the bar where we see a few security guys chuckling.)

Bouncer: Did you ladies know the guy on the bike?

(We shake our heads no.)

Yeah... that was Craig Morgan.

Wow. I have never felt like a bigger dumbass.

Although, in my defense he had on a rather large helmet and aviator sunglasses. And I've only seen him on album covers!

Not as exciting as Katelin meeting Joshua Jackson and announcing her surprise engagement, but I have to work with what I got folks.

Maybe the bouncers were pulling our legs. But really, what male country singer wouldn't approach two ladies who got all dolled up for his concert? :)

*And Was Nearly Trampled For A Guitar Pick

Wow so cool dude! Love the photos! If you’d known who he was what would you have done? I tend to be even more of a dumbass the few times I’ve met someone important & I’ve known who they are! It’s either verbal diarrhoea or struck dumb & either is not really me & so not cool! LoL Seeya Hugya *G*

The ego on that dude. Checking to see if you knew his songs. :)

hahaha, that must have been embarrassing, but I have to say I'm a little bit jealous!

Jess said...

That was TOTALLY him. Who else would ask for song names?

Priceless. And hilarious, too! Well, at least from this side of the computer screen.

He's kinda cute, yea? In country singers kind of way, I mean. You don't take pictures with him?:)

Larissa said...

That is a GREAT story. At least Craig Morgan didn't seem to mind the mistake!

La Petite Chic said...

Oh my god, that is such a great story! Ha ha :)

Mel said...

I love me some Craig Morgan.... I love me some Blake Shelton even more so. Can I run into Blake like you ran into Craig please?

Katelin said...

Lacey Bean said...

Haha that's great. That's like when my Dad told Gwenyth Paltrow that she would win first place in a Gwyneth Paltrow look-alike contest. :)

And you looked lovely, so double points.
