NFR 2015- The Cadillac Three

If you've been following my blog for a little while, you probably know- 
I'm a pretty big fan of The Cadillac Three. 

I met these guys in November 2014 on the Florida Georgia Line Cruise and they are not only really really talented guys, they're super nice and down to earth too.

I headed to this show solo as (what was supposed to be) my final NFR show and a pre-birthday hurrah. I managed to get a pretty awesome spot right in front (even though it was by an amp). The show was amazing as usual and since it was the last show of the year, the guys brought a pretty excited energy with them. Despite being behind a blonde with five elbows (and got handsy with me thinking my hand was her boyfriend's crotch), it was a wonderful time.






After the show, I was sitting in the casino trying to decide if I wanted to get food when Jaren and Neal walked by. Hellos and hugs followed and Jaren mentioned they were headed to a radio interview and "You know what, just come with us". Before I knew it, I was headed to the bar with two of the coolest guys in country music and their roadies. 


Following the interview, Jaren and Neal ordered a round for the group and toasted to the last show of the year. It was pretty cool to be included and get to hang out with the guys for a little while away from the crowds. Such a great way to celebrate my birthday!

P.S. The guys JUST realized a new single "Graffiti". Go check it out.

NFR 2015- A Thousand Horses

Last year the concert area at the Mirage was daunting to say the least. I had only seen it from a distance and did not realize that there was a large dancefloor in the middle making the crowds seem way bigger than they were. This year, I got there early and realized that it was actually a pretty easy crowd to navigate and we had pretty good spots for A Thousand Horses.

Super weird lighting.


Corey actually enjoyed the show.

NFR 2015- Gloriana

Last year I practically lived at the MGM Grand during Rodeo Season. I saw so many shows in their Gold Buckle Zone that I completely lost count. This year MGM moved their Gold Buckle Zone so it was a little different. It turns out, it was a great change. The event center was so much larger and the set-up was pretty awesome. Loved it.


This was my first country show with Corey (he's not a huge country fan). We got there early so we sat down and had a few drinks first (beer for him, Jello shots for me). 


The space was large and not at all crowded. Front row!




Rachel even threw me a pick.


I just love Gloriana live.

NFR 2015- Toys for Tickets

Toys for Tickets is one of my favorite events of the year.

Not only is it for a great cause (the radio stations together collect tens of thousands of dollars worth of toys every holiday season), but they always put on an amazing show with some of the best artists. This year was no exception.


I went with Becca, my usual country show partner in crime.


They started with Mickey Guyton and Cam.




There was Canaan Smith and Eric Paslay.


Old Dominion, one of my absolute FAVES.


And Tyler Farr and Jerrod Niemann.


And the group Christmas song finale!

NFR 2015- Sam Hunt

When this show was first announced, I thought I'd have plenty of time to decide if I wanted to go.


That was really dumb.

We managed to get tickets at the last minute that weren't TOO insanely overpriced, but when I mentioned to my mother that I was going to go, she quietly said "I want to go too". LOL

We grabbed dinner at DOCG Enoteca inside Cosmopolitan.

This stuff is unbelievably delicious. Like OMG. So yummy.


We had standing room seats on the balcony and they were comfortable and not cramped. We had a great view of the whole stage and looking down at that floor, I would have been miserable for sure.


Such a great show.


Random stuffed horse.


Great time with mom.
