The night before the show I Googled David's opener Ryan Star, since I had never heard of him (I didn't want to have another Darude incident...we'll get to that in the Blake Lewis entry, coming soon.) I found his music video for his song "Last Train Home" which made me even more excited for the next night.
After Ryan was finished with his set he went over to the merch table to meet with fans. The table happened to be right behind us, so when Ryan was walking through the crowd he stopped to pose for my cousin so she could take a picture of him with her cell phone.
We waited for the line at the merch table to clear out a little before my aunt and I went over to talk to Ryan. We talked for a while, he told me I was beautiful and that he liked my style. My aunt took a picture of Ryan and I. Then we went back to our spot because David was about to take the stage.
David was just as amazing as he had been on American Idol, but honestly I liked Ryan’s performance better. At some point while David was playing I decided to look through my camera to see how my picture with Ryan turned out (I blinked….so it was horrible.)
David called Ryan on stage before he sang “Avalanche” and told us all how great the tour with Ryan had been. Ryan then dropped to his knees as if he were going to propose to David. He quickly hopped up and gave David a kiss on the cheek. David shied away from Ryan and made a comment that they couldn’t do that because they were in the Bible belt…to which Ryan replied:
“It’s ok, Bill Clinton’s from here.” Everyone started laughing.
After the show I went up to Ryan and demanded we take another picture since I blinked in our first one. Heather (my sister) took the picture and this is what we got.
His new album "11:59" is coming
P.S. Yes, I know I promised this time it really would be about Candlebox...well sorry, I lied again. We will get to them at some point though.
