Last night Eric and I went to a country concert at Purdue. Dierks Bentley headed up the tour with Luke Bryan and Bucky Covington. It was liking coming home for this Nebraska girl. Even if I only knew a few of the songs.
You could also say Eric and I are cramming everything in we can before this baby comes in a matter of 2-3 weeks! And this was my kind of date night 🙂
The crazy thing was the more I listened to the songs, the more I realized what an oddity I am. Yes, I am a Gen Xer through and through….But…
I could sing along to Bucky’s rendition of Elvis’ Suspicious Minds. Give me music from the 50s and I am so there.
But when Bucky sang a Pink Floyd song…I knew a couple words, but had no idea Pink Floyd originally sang the song. Can you imagine singing we don’t need no education at a place like Purdue!?!?! Since I’ll start teaching again in the middle of May, I just laughed. As a teenager all I focused on was getting to college as quickly as possible. Sixteen worked for me. But the Pink Floyd song…not so relevant.
And I’m not sure I fit in this decade since … dare I admit it … I’ve never watched an episode of American Idol. Had no idea that Bucky was on it. Really had never heard of Bucky. Still not interested in watching the show.
Bottom line — I guess I don’t fit in a box.
Good thing since I’ve never liked boxes. Tend to fight them to be honest. But isn’t it interesting how something like a country concert can make that crystal clear 🙂
