If this did not actually happen to me the way it did, I am not sure I could actually believe it! But here goes and I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I will enjoy writing it. So I never did get an email about a M&G like I usually do for four out of the six concerts of Kellie's I have attended ( the first one was her AI tour, so you cannot really count that), and I did not have a meet and greet when I saw her with TS and Brad Paisley in Hershey, Pa, some years ago). But the rest I always got an email a day or two before. This time I did not but other Kellie fans assured me that they did not find out about theirs until the day of the concert so I still had hope. My husband and I decided to make a weekend of it so we left around 11Am Saturday morning as it was about a two hour drive and we wanted to take our time. We found a cheap O motel on line about a month ago because we did not want to pay $300/night to stay at Mt. Airy Resort! So we checked into the motel, relaxed for awhile and then headed over to the Resort which was about a 15 minute drive from our motel. Sure enough, we went to the Will Call and there was no M&G for me! I was really feeling bummed out because I had a beautiful necklace custom made for Kellie during my trip to Egypt last December which commemorates her wedding: It had Kyle's name in Arabic writing first, then Kellie's name in Arabic and then their anniversary date in arabic and I really wanted to give it to her and i was hoping that something would happen so I could find a way to give it to her. The venue was an outdoor theatre, so hubby and I went walking along the fence to at least see where the entrance was to get in but it was way too early, so we figured we would just hang out either outside or go inside the main casino building. So here we are walking and I had been praying to find a way to get this to her and there, right in front of my face was Grandpa Ken! Can you believe it? It happened less than five minutes after I found out from the will call that I did not have a m&G waiting! There he was, plain as day, as if God had planted him right there so I could talk to him! I said to my hubby, Said, that's Kellie's grandpa Ken and I am going to talk to him. And hubby said, go ahead I will wait here ( couple of feet away). So I go up to him and say, excuse me, Sir, but are you Kellie's grandpa? I recognized him mostly from when they showed him in the audience at DWTS. And he said, in the sweetest southern drawl voice, yes, M"mam, I am. Well, you can imagine my heart did a leap and bound and I started talk, talk talking about Kellie and how I have been a fan since day one of her AI audition, and how I loved her so much, and how I always got her stuff from egypt and i did not get a M&G and blah, blah blah i just kept talking and he was so sweet and soon we were talking about many things, even that he had a stroke last year and then I asked him if he is watching his diet and he told me yes, and he does not smoke or drink and we stood there talking for at least 15 minutes and then I asked him if he might be able to help me get this to Kellie and how I would love to give it to her myself and then he said he was fixin to go back on the bus in a few and he would tell her and he asked my name and I told him tell her Kira the "EGypt Lady" with the scarf, and he told me where to hang out and wait for him which was right near the entrance to the casino, right near her bus. Then I introduced him to my hubby and we walked over there and wait ed and waited and waited. I did not care even though my feet and back were killing me from standing so long and then he came out and told us that he told Kellie and she told him to set it up with her Road Manager! I wanted to jump outside my skin, but all together we waited stand ing there for over two hours and finally he came back and gave me an envelope with two M&G's for hubby and me! I thanked him and thanked him and told him I would keep him in my prayers. There were quite a number of people for the M&G so each only got one pic with her. When it was our turn, she said to me, hi, stranger, how are you? I said thank you so much you and your grandpa and she said of course when he came on my bus and asked if I knew you I said of course I do and told him to find my Manager and get them for you. We kissed and hugged and had only one pic with her and both of us and I told her she was fantastic on DWTS and she said, can you believe that I did that? So that is my amazing story, guys and now I will get to the concert review: Kellie Pickler gets better and better each time I see her. She was really in her element last night in spite of the fact that she still has a cold and you could hear it a bit in her voice. But she sang her heart out each and every song. She was really Kellie Pickler, the down to earth, home small town gal, but with a comfortableness that only comes with experience. She talked a lot between songs, talked about DWTS and how she really cannot believe that whole thing and how it turned out, she talked about Kyle and what a great guy he is and how much she loves him, talked about her grandparents, and so many other cute anecdotes. WE had great seats, fourth row from the stage, and all I can say is this: She has never been better as an entertainer and singer. OMG, the emotion when she sings her balads, and the playfulness and sassiness when she does the up beat songs! She sang the new one more than halfway into the concert and brought the house down! If you all love it on the radio and CD, it is nothing compared to hearing her sing it live! Of course I was crying and others were as well. She also sang another new one "Ring for Sale" which is up tempo and really catchy: I htink if they ever released it it would be a real hit! She sang in no particular order cuz i cannot remember the whole order: Little House on the Highway (Opening with that), DYKYB, MY Angel, BESt days, TTNCAMM, I wonder,White Lighening, Rocks instead of Rice, I wanna be Married but I wanna be single too, there were about 16 songs and REd HIgh Heels as an encore! She was absolutely fantastic, every single song, oh yes, and Didn't YOu KNow how Much I Loved you. I know you all are tired from reading this but I truly wanted to share my whole experience with all my Kellie fans! We are all so lucky to be in her life as we are to have her in ours.
