a girl just stopped me and said my truck looks like the kind every country singer should drive. nice way of saying my truck looks like crap!
A few people hollered out "birthdays", and Dierks said, we have a "one-day-old", referring to Brian Layson (lead guitar) who became a daddy again the day before. He still had the white hospital band around his wrist.
Attendees dined on mini mexican cuisine and baby BBQ sandwiches--but the Bud Light was NOT free this year. Other activities new to LCB7 included the buckets-o-peanuts on the tables--two of which were autographed by Dierks and awarded to two winners. Some found the photo booth and played around with some funny poses.
It was great meeting up with friends whom I've met over the last 6 years at all the other Last Call Balls, and meeting new ones! I even met some for the first time and thought I had already met them--that's how strong the online DBC connection is! I love my DBC family!
But the most important part of the night was the one-on-one Meet and Greet with our DB Congress president - Dierks Bentley himself. The commemorative lanyard/tickets were numbered and those in the 480-500 range did not meet DB until 3 a.m. But many fan club parties don't even offer the one-on-one M&G, so Dierks fans are very fortunate he gives us that special time with him. Of course, that's why we all are so loyal and dedicated to supporting him, right?
I even went to Blake Shelton's fan club party on Friday night, in hopes Dierks would show up like he did last year, but it wasn't to be. And although Blake put on an awesome concert with some surprise guests, that's all it was--absolutley NO meet and greet. What?
