Taylor Swift!!!

On Thursday, September 19th, we had tickets to see Taylor Swift on her opening night in Nashville! To say that we were excited was an understatement.  Daddy was a good sport and came too!  I don't think Chloe quite knew what to expect...rightfully so...she had never been to a real concert like this before!

We got home early to get ready!  I thought Chloe looked so big in her boots, curls, and flowy top!

We headed to Nashville {in the middle of rush hour} to grab a bite to eat before the concert.  We ended up eating at Rock Bottom Brewery on Broadway {formerly Big River Grille}.  It was really good and quick...which is what we needed!

We got to Bridgestone with about 20 minutes to spare and proceeded to stand in a t-shirt line for all of that 20 minutes...not so fun!  But, I knew Chloe would enjoy having a t-shirt from her first concert!  We grabbed our t-shirt and headed to our seats.

I was blow away at how amazing our seats were.  They were 2 rows from the floor towards the middle of the arena; so we were basically with all the crazy fans right there in the middle of it all.  Thankfully, there was a nice grandmother sitting in the row in front of us and she let Chloe and a few other girls come down to lean on the barricade.  This was a BONUS because Taylor Swift came right by there while she was singing.  She stayed back by us for about 45 minutes singing on a smaller stage.  The opening act, Ed Sheeran, walked by Chloe too and gave her a high five!  Not a big deal to her, but that's neat to me since I thoroughly enjoy his music!  Also, the girls leaning against the barricade were all given a Taylor Swift guitar pick!  Extra Bonus!!!

The kids all had great signs--the one above was one of the best!  They got pulled from the crowd to go right upfront // Ed Sheeran on stage // RED--getting ready for Taylor to come out // Blake and Chloe during Taylor's set

We had such a great time. It was a late night for Chloe to have school the next day, but I think a great memory was made for us all!
