A few weeks ago, I went to see Brad Paisley in concert. It was such a good concert! I went to his concert at the Honda Center in Anaheim on July 21st. I went with my mom. She is not a country fan at all, but she went to see Kane Brown, one of the opening acts.
Brad Paisley was the headliner in the concert. As I mentioned earlier, Kane Brown was one of the opening acts. The other opening act was Dan Tyminski. I had never heard of him, but he was pretty good. He sang “Hey, Brother” with Avicii, the dj who passed away earlier this year.
I heard Kane Brown a couple years ago when he came out with the song “What if”. I really liked that song. Recently, my mom heard his music and when she heard that he was going to come out in concert here in California, my mom made sure to get tickets as soon as they went on sale. She asked me months in advance if I wanted to go with her. I said yes, because unlike her, I really like country music. Only downside was that the Brad Paisley concert was the same day as the Tim McGraw concert, which was at the Staples Center. But since I had seen him last year, I thought it would be a good idea to see new people in concert.
We got to Anaheim really early for the concert. It started at 730pm and my mom got us there at 530pm. We went to eat before the concert, because I was starving! It was the first time in ages that my mom and I hung out together , just the two of us. That never happens because I am the oldest of six and now that she has her boyfriend, she spens so much time with him. We got to the Honda Center and couldn’t believe how close our seats were! They were only like $70/$75 and we were sitting floor side. We felt a little bit out of place because we didn’t see too many people like us at the concert, but I was determined to not let that ruin our good time.
Kane Brown sang all his hits, as well as some new songs I had never heard before. He is a pretty good singer live. He also sang a few covers of songs that he liked listening to while growing up. It was interesting to see him live and see how the fans reacted to him. He also talked to us about his life story, which was another way he connected with his fans.
Brad Paisley was the first male singer I listened to when I started listening to country music a few years ago. I think the first song I heard from him was “This is Country Music”. Needless to say, I was very excited to see him in concert. He did not disappoint! Seeing him live in concert was great! He is so talented and funny. One really cool thing was that he went to a smaller stage in the middle of the arena and he was so close to us! I tried to take pictures but my phone camera was sucky! OH well, I had a blast seeing him. I can’t wait for my next concert. I am hoping to see Carrie Underwood next year.
