It's Rodeo Business as Usual For Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley NRG Stadium March 21, 2015

Saturday was one of those days where, when you looked outside, you might have thought it was never going to stop raining. Life doesn't stop on account of dreary weather, however, and so the rodeo rolled on.

Practically speaking, it meant the halls of NRG Center were packed in a way you don't see very often during the rodeo. Sure, folks pop in to check out the baby animals and maybe test out those fancy massage chairs, but compared to the carnival and the rodeo proper it doesn't quite conjure up the same sense of excitement.

But there people were, huddled up in circles, eating and messing about on their phones, killing time until the stadium opened.

Brad Paisley was in town, and you don't let a little rain keep you from missing him.
