I completely understand if some of you do not relate to this style. That's okay. Just envision it with riding or ankle boots. It can easily be replicated with a simple change of footwear, but I had to slip on my cowgirl boots for one last push. Push? Yes, push.

Maybe push isn't the best word, but it was the first one that came to mind. I chatted with you guys a month or so ago about how I longed to become the official style correspondent for the iHeartRadio Country Festival. This isn't a contest. I am not in the running with anyone. There is no voting. It's is a role that I conjured up in my own head. I was unable to score tickets because the festival sold out faster than I could grab a pair online. I thought, why not apply for a couple of press passes and blog about it while having some fun along the way.
I am not asking for a handout just because I have a blog. I fully intend to work this event, share some styling tips beforehand, promote it and all it's glory and give everyone up-to-date details before, during and after the show.
I applied for an iHeartRadio Country Festival pass several weeks ago. They will announce the press pass "awards" on March 1st. This is do or die, people. If you have been reading my rambles for any length of time you know that I am a die hard country music fan and every single performer(s) that will be on stage are on my "I LOVE YOU" list.
This is one of the hottest tickets in town. I am sure that every radio station DJ and editorial reporter has applied for this pass. I would too. Um, I did, and I did it because I know that I can add a different spin on the event. My hopes are to reel in an additional audience and still keep current country music fans engaged.
I am 100% putting myself out there to you and everyone else that is reading. I am okay with that; I think. If I didn't try to win iHeartRadio's heart, come March 29th I would wonder if I could have made it happen for myself. You never know if you don't try. So, here I am trying, asking and promising that I won't let any of you down.
I will keep y'all posted if I am accepted or rejected. Cowgirl boots crossed for the next few weeks!
