I have the worst memory and since this was over 10 years ago I only remember the important details.
My Mom got on this country music kick and decided one day to take us kids to the Dollar Bank Jamboree back in 2001. There was music, food, and I’m sure a whole lot of other fun and exciting things.
Fast forward to the end of the night, Toby Keith and his band were signing autographs, no pictures allowed… Yeah right.
We waited patiently for our turn, slowly moving down the line of yellow caution tape separating us from them. I don’t know if they thought that was going to stop me and of course it didn’t. It was almost my turn, I told my friend when I say “GO” take the picture, and I figured I only had a small window of opportunity before I was tackled to the ground by some hired homeless security guards.
Suddenly there was a chill in the air as a dark shadow covered my body, glancing down at me and blocking the moon was Toby Keith himself. It was time to make my move, I handed him my program and jumped the tape. I stood next to him and forcefully told him to smile, he did.
The rest of the band signed and I got pictures with I think the drummer and …. Some other guy.
Everyone was very nice, they took the time to sign and take pictures.
From what I remember we had fun and I was able to put another notch in my belt.
