How Excited Am I?  

I won two tickets to ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHTS!!!! It's in Vegas, so it's close! And Tim and Keith and Lady Antebellum, and even Pit Bull, who is about the only rap artist who I actually like some of their music.

The blurb: Country music superstars Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum along with international music sensation Pitbull, have been added to the all-star lineup of artists scheduled to perform at the ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night, taping Monday, April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. They join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Ne-Yo. The special will be broadcast at a later date on the CBS Television Network.

Fifteen-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw is spotlighting the hottest music of the summer and calling on his friends to help kick off the 2013 tour season. ACM PRESENTS: TIM MCGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT will feature high-octane performances and musical collaborations in a two-hour, star-studded concert event to benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.

Okay, back-story: I follow Keith Urban on Twitter, and on Friday, he tweeted it was the last day to enter a contest his fanclub was putting on for a pair of tickets to the above, and the tickets would be awarded on Saturday. I figured what the heck, it's in Vegas, two hours away,I would never pay for tickets that the cheapest is $115, and I never win anything anyway. So I entered, I checked my email on Saturday and Sunday, nope, I didn't win. Last night, I'm watching TV, glancing at my Yahoo mail, and realize the email I must have seen in the morning might actually be from the contest!! IT WAS! I had 24 hours to respond, which I did, and I heard back today form Keith Urban's fan engagement person that the ACM would be in touch with me about the tickets. COMMENCE SQUEEEEING!!!!

I can't believe I won! And won something cool and fun and exciting!!! I've been bouncing around since last night!

Wow! How awesome is that for you! It's so cool that you entered anyway, and then won. And it was something great not just a free soda, lol. (That's what I always seem to win and I don't even like soda pop.)

This.Is.So.Cool. My eldest daughter (and son-in-law) will be jealous.

So, are you going to wear anything interesting to the taping so we can recognize you in the audience?

No one is more surprised than I am that I won!
