Molly C. from Massachusetts was the winner of the Propeller experience to "Have a VIP Meet & Greet Experience with Ruston Kelly in Nashville" that took place in June 2023. Below are some of Molly's highlights from the experience.
We had such an incredible time! Truly a once in a lifetime experience and it did not disappoint.
We arrived in Nashville late afternoon on Thursday and checked into the hotel. The hotel was awesome and so unique. We loved it and the amenities were great. We grabbed dinner at Adele's, and then headed to Broadway and hung out at Acme Feed & Seed.
On Friday, we headed to the Gulch for breakfast and did some shopping, ubered to East Nashville to explore and grabbed lunch there.
We headed to the venue and met up with Tia from Ruston's team. She was so nice and brought us backstage where we met Ruston. We've been laughing because we were both so starstruck, we barely remember what we said. He was so nice and down to earth. He came out and gave us both huge hugs, we chatted and talked about his music, and he gave us the painting. We assumed we'd talk to him for a couple minutes but it felt like a good ten minutes of talking. Then we got to go to the VIP soundcheck where Ruston answered questions and played a few acoustic songs. The concert was so cool, such a cool venue and he crushed it. It was his best show we had ever been to, hands down. Tia was so nice and held onto our painting until the end of the concert so that we didn't have to hold onto it all night.
On Saturday, we slept in and headed to the airport. It was so warm and sunny in Nashville and cold and rainy up in Boston so that was the worst part.
We keep talking about how we can't believe this happened and how unreal it all seemed. We had such a blast, got to meet our favorite artist, and see his best show ever. We are so grateful to Propeller for having this opportunity!
