"Me and My Gang" First in line for Rascal Flatts

A group of young women from Tipton, Ind. woke up at 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning to claim the coveted front row for Rascal Flatts, who perform this evening at 8 p.m. at the State Fair's Hoosier Lottery Grandstand.

Lorie, Kayla and Courtney, three friends and Rascal Flatts super fans, arrived at the Fairgrounds around 6:15 a.m. and have been sitting underneath the Grandstand ever since. Tonight's concert will be Lorie's third time seeing Rascal Flatts perform. Kayla is looking forward to her fourth time, but Courtney takes-the-cake; tonight will be her sixth show. All three fans purchased tickets the first day they were on sale.

Since I've dubbed Courtney the Super Fan, you'll have to check out the video; she talks about the extra-special surprise she received from the Rascal Flatts Fan Club!

Even during the short time I talked with the girls, the line began to grow. Another group of friends from Central Indiana arrived around 8 a.m., but they were smart enough to bring playing cards! When I asked Lorie, Kayla and Courtney if they would make friends with their newest neighbors, their answer was a resounding yes!

While they wait until track seating opens the evening, the girls will take this time to people watch, enjoy fair smells and maybe even play some cards. If they get hungry enough, one friend might venture out for a deep-fried fair snack, while the others hold her place.

You may not be willing to wake up in the middle of the night, but if you're looking for something to do tonight, tickets are still available for tonight's show! Come hang out at the fair...and when you see the girls in the front row, you'll know they've waited all day for the chance to see Chris Young, Kellie Pickler, and Rascal Flatts. And nope, don't worry - they aren't Drinkin' Themselves Lonely or Wearin' Red High Heels...but they certainly got Their Wish!
