Zac Brown Band~~One of Forrest's favorite concerts yet

Forrest and his best girl Katelynn, went to see the Zac Brown Band at the BOK Center in Tulsa last night.

Forrest had to wake up early this morning to get ready to work for his "coach hero,  Coach Clemments," at his lawn care business this morning.  Monty and I just got up with him to pack his lunch,  (as  any over-doting parent, whose son is about to graduate, and you take every opportunity to spoil them before they fly out of the nest, would do.)   I know, weird that it took two of us to pack a lunch.  Monty got the ice chest---I was on sandwich duty.  We're both still worn out from watching our little buddy, Eddie Jett while Sky was at work last night till midnight so it took two tired brains to do it!

Anyhow, Forrest was so pumped about the concert, he could not stop talking about it.
He played us footage from his I-Phone and went on and on about how it was probably the best show he had ever been to...and he's been to many.  Not only did each band member of the Zac Brown Band, play virtually all the instruments, but they also sang either back up or lead vocals as well at one point.  The light show, everything was just incredible he said.

Now...the best part.  Forrest said that Zac stopped the show for a bit and spoke to the huge crowd about the issue of special needs children.  Forrest thought, if he heard him correctly, that Zac has a special needs nephew, as does Forrest.  Zac gave everyone information on a camp that he and his band are responsible for building with proceeds from their concerts and music sales. It's called, Camp Southern Ground.  They even had a booth set up at the show, so that concert goers could sign up their loved ones with special needs to receive more information about the amazing camp.  Forrest was just blown away by their musical prowess and generous giving spirit.

All I can say is, that's what being famous is all about...I know of some Southern Mama's that have got to be proud of their musically talented, Southern musician sons.  Zac Brown Band, my family salutes you!

Rock on~~

  1. A classsic lonesome Vince Gill ballad with lovely soaring vocals. It only just scraped into the top.
