Today's Aww-Inducing Concert Story

Our account manager Nikki Pierce was
at the
Hootenanny last weekend and saw a cute little 4-year-old
girl playing guitar on stage with Chuck Berry. The little girl knew all the words
his songs. After he was done
his set and trying to get to his car, people were bombarding him trying
get pictures and autographs. But when he spotted
that same
little girl, he gave her $20 for playing with him. We tracked the girl's mother down to give you a story with a moral: Bring your kids to good shows!

Buckner, mom of 4-year-old Rylie, says her husband
plays guitar and the whole family listens
to a lot of old blues, including BB King, Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry. (Rylie is named after  Riley B. King.)

Rylie loves “Johnny B. Goode” and “Maybelline,” so the whole family was really excited that she got to go onstage with a legend. At the concert, Berry asked security to let the Buckner girls onstage. “He just got up and put his guitar in front of
her, and Rylie started plucking it. She has her own guitar, but she doesn't know how to play. Still, she was
totally excited.”

What did Rylie think of Chuck Berry giving her $20? She reportedly told her mom, “I thought
he was just showing me his money but he gave me his money!”
