B is for Beer

Beer: an alcoholic beverage usually made from malted cereal 
grain (as barley), flavored with hops, and brewed by slow fermentation.
[According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary]

So this past weekend I attended Country Concert for the second year. The three-day concert featured Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Justin Moore, Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Montgomery Gentry, Lady A and so many more! Although the music was great and the concerts were fun, I think that the best part was just being there for the experience, camping, partying with everyone and meeting so many fun, new people. This weekend I stayed at a campsite with a friend from school and his friends from home. Everyone was so nice and we had all had a great time. Once we  got our camper set up, we met all the neighbors and settled in with a few drinks. We had to take our chairs and wait in line for Golden Circle tickets. Basically it's a huge mad dash to get a first come first serve ticket for super close seats. You just have to take your chair to get a ticket. The other days the guys had to get up pretty early and wait in line just to sprint again to make sure we got enough tickets. While the guys went to get our tickets, Richie made us breakfast on the grill every morning. It was the best meal you could ask for after the nights we had. Another one of the best parts of the weekend was after breakfast, when we all piled into Spencer's truck and headed to our friend Baum's house, which is kind of close to the concert. We all got to take showers and naps and get ready for the day - so refreshing! Then back in the truck and back to the concert. We had massive FlipCup games going on with our neighbors and random passer-bys while we waited for the concerts to start and during the breaks. I'm not sure what it is about alcohol that just allows everyone to bond, but I won't forget the people I met this weekend. They really made the weekend live up to its potential and helped make this one of the best adventures of my summer so far. Can't wait to see you all again and wish CC'12 wasn't so far away.
