Why I Want to Date a Cowboy (Just Once)

Country guys are hot. The crowd at the Miranda Lambert show provided plenty of people-watching opportunities, complete with lots of overdressed people and gigantic trucks that dwarved my poor little Toyota.

I'm about as far from the "country girl" image as one can get, but that doesn't change the fact that I want to date a cowboy someday.

Country Thunder 2012: When all else fails, watch people fall off the mechanical bull.
Here's an experiment -- get out of your comfort zone and go somewhere new. Try the last bar you'd ever expect to check out, one that plays a type of music you hate. Country is not my preferred genre, by any means, and having little more in common with the country gal image than blond hair and the occasional bit of plaid makes me stand out hilariously. Then again, my first experience was at Charlie's, and I'm obviously not a gay man dressed as a cowboy, but watching men two-step is pretty damn entertaining.

Some people love to comment on my tattoos as if I'm some sort of unicorn, but I have the same reaction when I see somebody wearing a cowboy hat. It's not something I see every day, and even if the person is a phony, part of me still hopes they spit tobacco and say "ma'am" while tipping their hats. Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill lives up to this image, as guys in white cowboy hats hang out by the mechanical bull and drink crappy domestic beer.

After Googling attractive male country singers, I prepared myself for the people-watching
event of a lifetime at the Miranda Lambert show.
