Random Gets With Some Surprises in Baltimore & Nashville

Post by adelta13 » May 25th, 2018, 7:12 pm

Last Friday (May 18th), My buddy and I went down to a local venue for singer Michael McDonald (Part of Doobie Brothers). We wait for a bit and we're the only two waiting. Michael leaves the spots, signs for us then takes a photo with me. After getting Michael, we went to a spot for Country Singer Dierks Bentley but unfortunately we didn't see Dierks. At this point it was 2am and we had a early morning flight for Actress/Model Charlotte McKinney (Baywatch, Flatliners, Carl's Jr Commercial) so we went to the casino to burn time. After awhile, we went to the airport and waited for Charlotte to arrive. She shows up with her boyfriend, signs for us, then takes photos with my buddy and I. I had a flight for singer Ne-Yo but I ended up sleeping in instead.

Later on in the day, we went to a spot for rapper Post Malone, but unfortunately we didn't see him but later on it turns out if we would of waited at this spot longer, we would of seen him.

Many of you may or may not know but I am a huge country music fan. I've met a lot of country singers but there was one singer that I've failed on couple of times. 3x AMC Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean! One time I saw him at an Orioles game and didn't bother him, and other time he was in town I didn't go because I didn't think he would do it but later on he did it. Usually with big country singers, access can be horrible because they're either on a private plane or on their bus. GUESS WHAT!??! I found a commercial flight on Jason Aldean! But here's the kicker, it was due to come in Nashville. Immediately I looked into my flight options because I want to meet him, he is one of my favorite country singers and I was due to see him in concert the day after this flight was suppose to happen. While looking into my flight options, I realized I had enough miles to make the flight happen. Next step was getting off at work, so I was able to switch with someone at work!

So Wednesday (May 23), I leave Baltimore around 9am and arrive into Nashville 10am central time. I had some time to burn in the airport before Jason was suppose to come in. While waiting, I spotted PEYTON MANNING arriving into the airport. I approached him for a photo and he said no claiming I just got him the other day. I told him that I just got into town, which lead to him questioning why I was there? Finally, he ended up taking a photo but it didn't come out perfect because he looked away. Luckily, I already have a good photo with him so whatever.

I continue my wait, by looking for randoms because Nashville is a huge music town so you never know who you would see. Finally, Jason arrives with his tour manager but he's on the phone... I tried to approach Jason but the tour manager said it wasn't happening. I told him the trouble I went through to have this opportunity with Jason. Finally, Jason stop and takes the photo!!! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Later on, I re-approached Jason for autographs, which he had no problem with. I then got another photo with him for good measure.

I had an hour to burn in Nashville before my flight so I grabbed dinner and just chilled. While waiting, I got Information on Star Wars George Lucas being at a spot. With uncertainty of my timing, I was skeptical. I arrived into Baltimore and catch a quick ride to the spot. I meet up with my buddy and started our wait for George. Finally 20 minutes later, George shows up with his wife and bodyguard. George walks up to us despite the spot's security trying to intervene. George does 1 each and takes a photo with me. Unfortunately my regular camera battery died so I had to settle with my Iphone camera, but screw it! It's George F'king Lucas!

The Next day I saw Jason Aldean in Concert and it was an great experience!

Wow, a lot of legends here. Aldean was in NYC not long ago at the venue Hayley from the Goldberg's played. Probably easy there, though I saw after the fact. Still, that's dedication. Michael McDonald is cool, and of course Lucas. He's basically shut down in new york due to the dealers.
