She’s Gone Country.

I realize that by posting two somewhat country related post in a row that it might start to look like I’m a bona fide country music fan. But in reality it’s my DAD who is the country fan. And when Craiggers gets into something, he REALLY gets into it. (Some people say we have a few things in common…) My parents were coming in town for a wedding and for my mom’s birthday, so daddi-o he thought it would be fun if all of the married Faulkners went to a concert. So Eric, my parents and Andrea and Brian and I all headed up to see Keith Urban in Salt Lake last Wednesday.

I went to see Keith Urban, not knowing one of his songs, not being able to pick him out of a line up, and without even thinking to curl my hair, put on a pair of boots or slip into some booty-length jean shorts. And despite all of this, IT WAS AWESOME.

For starters for those of you who don’t know Keith Urban looks like this:


And he is also an absolute SWEETHEART. So even though I was pretty clueless about the whole thing, the concert was an absolute blast. Keith was so genuine and adorable, even ERIC had a good time.

Andrea and I were horrified when we arrived because we realized we had missed an opportunity to rat our hair. So we figured because we stuck out like sore thumbs in our skinny jeans and flat locks, that we should really participate and get into things in other ways. They had some promos going on before the concert and it wasn’t long before Andrea and I had decided to join in on the karaoke.

As I mentioned we didn’t know any of the songs, so we had to look up the lyrics on our phones and practice a bit. Then we waited in line and were able to make our very own KEITH URBAN VIDEO!

It might have been a while since you’ve gotten to see some of my sweet dance moves…so I thought I’d share.


The video/karaoke contest was to win a guitar. I was pretty upset that Andrea and I didn’t win. But I’m hoping to make the “Best of Salt Lake” reel that is on the Verizon/Keith Urban website.

I’ll keep you posted.

Ok I’m off to make some ponies.

    Fact: Keith Urban has better highlights than me.
    Fact: He and Nicole Kidman have a baby, with the unfortunate name of Sunday Rose.

    That sums up what I know about Keith Urban.

    Hey, remember me, your old roomie for not long enough? I loved your dance moves, and have decided that if I could go to any party, anywhere, I would want you, and andrea, and alexis, and grant to be with me. I love everything about your posts, mainly you!

    if only everyone in the world danced like you two…I remember a stake dance you crashed once upon a time to pick up Blake–but not before showing those 15 year olds how real women dance.

    you're awesome
