3 Things I Learned at My First Country Concert

I think we can all agree that live concerts are one of the best ways to celebrate music. 

There's something about seeing someone play live, taking in the atmosphere that they've created, and being around people who also love that particular artist or genre that makes concerts nothing less than a magical experience

While concerts in general share a lot of similar characteristics, there's also a slightly different vibe depending on the artist, genre, etc. that usually results from the demographic of people they tend to attract. 

I've been to pop concerts, indie concerts, and rap concerts, and believe me when I say I enjoyed them all. However, it wasn't until recently that I went to my first country concert, and let me tell you, that was an experience completely unique from any other. 

With that being said, I've included a few of the things I learned, and loved, about attending my first country concert. 

1. People drink A LOT

I think it's safe to say that alcohol is consumed at most concerts, but I can't even begin to count how many people I say double-fisting XL cans of Bud Light at this concert. Hands down one of the most impressive and unexpected things I've ever seen. 

2. There's someone screaming at all times

It didn't matter whether or not the band was playing - some was always screaming or cheering. While it was a little bit confusing at first, the excitement quickly became contagious. 

3. Everyone was incredibly friendly 

Not to say that other concerts don't have friendly attendees, but at this concert in particular, so many people said hello, started up random conversations with me, and really added to my overall experience

I wasn't completely sure what I was getting myself into when I bought these tickets, but I can honestly say I had a great time. Collegiettes, I highly recommend going to a country music concert at some point in your life, even if you don't necessarily love the music, because it's an experience unlike any other.
