I read a post yesterday written by MOM – Not Otherwise Specified about an amazing, and I mean AMAZING, day that she and her son had when her sons favorite musician Dierks Bentley hung out with them at a fair that they were playing at.

Go read the post. It will restore your faith in humanity.

I just have a couple quick comments.

That is such a huge big ticket moment in the kids life and kudos to the band for making it happen.

And an even bigger kudos to the band for their ability to just hang out with the kid without looking confused about what to do or unsure about what to say. Those conversations will probably stick around with Bud longer than any of the big moment things that happened that day.
