Just a little throwback to when a baby Mel got up at 5am and waited in line 7 hours to meet her favorite band. I had only met a couple artists but no one even close to this scale. I finally got to hug Joe Don. I still don’t know if I’ve ever been that starstruck in my entire life. I didn’t stop smiling the rest of that trip. I may not listen to them as much I used to, or talk about them as much, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less. These guys personally and musically have meant the world to me. “My Wish” will forever be my favorite song in the world. I see them every summer with my Mom and tomorrow that tradition will continue. And I cannot wait. I go to tons of concerts and have a blast at most of them, but there are very few artists who can make me just smile. It’s this certain smile that I’ve made since I was little when I’m really truly happy. Rascal Flatts are one of the few artists that never fail to bring that out. And I’m sure they will tomorrow. There is a very slight chance I might get to “meet” them again, I might get another hug from all of them. That would be incredible, although in completely fine if I don’t, I’ve had my chance. I just hope everything lives up to every year before this. And that I just get to leave smiling. Love these guys forever.
