We had already met Chuck at the softball game but wanted to say hi again at the fan club party. As we were headed to get in line we were stopped by Chuck's manager and were told to follow him. We went to a back room where the meet and greets were being held and we were going to meet Chuck before anyone else. We had about 10 minutes alone with Chuck! My favorite picture is the top picture. I wanted to hug him and he saw what Jen was doing and he helped hold my arm around his neck.
Watty and I met Lucas Hoge from the show Last Chance Highway on Animal Planet. Lucas is also a singer. As you can see Watty loved meeting him!
The day Rascal Flatts was to perform they had sound check earlier that morning. We found out when it was and went to listen and possibly catch the guys heading to their bus afterword. We were waiting and the first Flatt we spotted was Chank, the fiddle player, coming out of the tunnel. He stopped and waited for us to get to him after he rounded the fence. What was funny was we told Watty lets go say hi to Chank and he took off at a run to Chank. Watty has NEVER met Chank before and we were stunned! Chank said he would take a picture with just Watty. Watty is the unofficial mascot of the Flatts :P. As Chank was standing up Watty went to move and I have no clue what Chank did because I didn't see or hear him do/say anything to Watty but he went straight into a sit and waited to be handed back to me. Jen said she heard him use like a clicking sound. After that encounter Watty and Chank are buddies.

We met Josh Turner at his fan club party. He was happy to take a picture with Watty but Watty didn't want to cooperate. By this time of the week he was tired and ready to head home even though we had a few more days left before we were to head home.
