There isn’t any denying that one of the greatest draws of fanatics is live country music, though everyone want to make a rousing argument for why their favourite music is superior to others. Country music has found a surge in popularity during the previous couple of years due, in part, to a committed effort by country artists to make the music link with the “everyday guy”.
You might have a ticket to a show, while you might possess the CDs and MP3s of your favorite country music artists. As would be the case for anybody who has not been to a concert what can I anticipate? When attending your first country music concert maybe it is better to see things not from a standpoint of anticipations but instead an overall notion of what may come your way.
Here are a few of the things that you may encounter:
1. Booze – There Is not any way to get around it. Booze will probably show up in the show. No matter whether it is concert goers downing beverages while singing their favourite song in the front row or tailgating in the parking lot before the show, you are going to come in touch with booze. Be responsible in your eating, be aware of anyone who has had too much & should you be attending the concert using a group, and how that can change your personal safety, as to designating a sober motorist & keeping tabs on each other, plan ahead.
2. Cowboy Hats and Boots – It might appear a little too on the nose, but the truth is that boots & a cowboy hats are part of the uniform for the country music lover. Oddly enough, as country music takes on a more laidback, fraternity brother kind fashion, the denim/tennis shoe/trucker hat has gotten quite en vogue for the past couple of years. However, boots and a hat could be viewed as mark of the wearer’s character. For instance, determined by the kind of hat worn, you are either wearing something that best fits a float down a day or a river weaning calves from their mothers out on the ranch.
3. Families – It might appear a little strange in the beginning, but you’d be alarmed how many families are in fact attending concerts. Call it a case where parents want to tap in their youngsters’ interests or perhaps an artist has bridged a gap between generations, again and families are two-step dancing and line dancing their way to country music concerts. Given the virtual minefield that you just could anticipate at a show from alcohol and general rowdiness, it’s pleasant to presume that it could also be a family matter.
