I just told this story to my cousin.
And thought I would share it with you all. 😂
So when I was little I won a Kenny Rogers poster at a carnival. My dad worked concerts so at the next Kenny show I told my dad I wanted to have him autograph it. So my dad worked at the old Chicago Stadium which was an old boxing arena – not like the fancy arenas of today. So after the show, my dad had one of his friends bring me to Kenny’s dressing room since my dad was still dealing with the lights. So Howie brings me down and tells me to go on in. And he is on the shower. Naked. But there are no doors because it is an old boxing arena and I politely ask for his autograph and unroll my poster and scare the shit out of him. He starts yelling at me, which I am sure he didn’t mean to yell at a 5 year old ADORABLE little chubby girl who is now crying because Kenny Rodgers is screaming at her naked, But now I was sad because I love him because he sings Lucille and Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town.
So Crystal Gayle opened for him and out of nowhere scoops me up (and that is literally no tiny feat – I was short – and CHUBBY - but like, SO ADORABLE), and carries me out. So now I am bawling to Crystal Gayle and she is trying to calm me down and she is hugging me and I am trying to tell her I just wanted an autograph and now my poster is all mangled. She says she will give me an autograph and I am still hyperventilating and she takes me to her dressing room and gets a headshot and signs it to me and walks me out until we find Howie.
When I handed it to my mom out in the parking lot and finally stopped crying it became apparent that I was crying so hard she couldn’t understand my name.
So I have an autographed pictured from Crystal Gayle to “Lisa.”
Thank you, @thecrystalgayle for being so nice to me. And I am so sorry @_kennyrogers for walking in on you. But, I'm coming to see you at Oc fair on July 30th. I'd love it if you'd sign my poster. 😊
