dena trivia: 3
so, i’m really into country music. i used to LOATH it, but then i had this pretty cool cousin who lives in colorado who came to visit (she was in town for a funeral, go figure) and while driving around (we were actually headed to the feed store to buy some dove food for my mom’s birds) she turned on the country radio and, although i wouldn’t admit it at the time, i fell in love with the campy themes and sappy lyrics. i should have know country music was so “me”; i was born destined to like shania twain and loretta lynn.
anyway, this triva fact goes something like this. in high school i got free front row tickets to a keith urban concert (at the freakin’ huge toyota center) and so, although i don’t like his music much at all,i wasn’t going to turn down something FREE and so ventured out to it with my best friend at the time (rachel, hope you remember this the same way i do). i’ve always been slightly obsessed with anyone “famous” and wasn’t going to let the whole concert go on with out making my mark on mr. urban.
so, half way through the concert i managed to stand up on the barrier (who knows where the security guard was) and was planning to just TOUCH keith urban’s leg. i thought i’d be the coolest if i could say i had actually touched him. BUT, somewhere between my leaning on to the stage and balancing on the barrier bars and reaching out i lost my balance and had nothing else to grad onto but KEITH URBAN HIMSELF. he ended up stumbling on stage and i ended up getting yelled at by every single person within a 25 foot radius. i was SO embarrassed, and felt so bad for causing such a big deal. but hey, now i can say i was the girl who tripped keith urban on stage.
anyone else have a “famous person” embarrassing story ? btw, this was just one of many, if ya’ll are into this kinda stuff i could share more …
