I won 2 tickets from a local radio station here in Greeley to see Leann Rimes at the Union Colony Civic Center. So I decided to take Aspen for some daddy/daughter time. We both had a great time. The concert was entertaining. Leann has an incredible voice. Aspen actually recognized more songs than she thought she would. The seats were pretty good for being up on the 3rd level. I wasn't complaining since it was free. After the concert Aspen and I took a stroll to the back of the UCCC. As we were walking up to the door we noticed the 3 vans carrying Leann and the band members were running and ready to go. Aspen said, "Hey, there is one of the guys that played the gold guitar!" He was walking to one of the cars. We continued to walk closer the the back door, where there was about 5 other people and about 6 security guards standing there. Not 30 seconds after we got to the door, Leann comes walking out with 2 guards. She stopped and gave out autographs to the few of us there. Aspen got Leann to sign her program and we also took this picture. I did not have a camera, but luckily I had my cell phone. The picture turned out OK. We also talked to her briefly saying that we loved her music and how we enjoyed her voice. She was very friendly to us. She was extremely nice to us and even wrapped her arm around Aspen for the picture. What a lucky thing we got to experience. Aspen and I had an awesome evening together.
