Couple Engaged at Outdoor Concert
The 13-24 Drive In brought families, friends, and neighbors together this summer - a time when it was needed most. We’ve heard many wonderful stories and thought we’d share one that made us smile.
Jason Shook and Kimberly Adair of Sharpsville, Indiana attended a Lee Brice concert at 13-24 Drive In in August. Jason wanted to treat his girlfriend to a fun, outdoor event.
“He wanted to take me to the show because he hadn’t been to any concerts this year,” Kimberly said. “We had planned to go to several before COVID. And he knew it was something I’d really wanted to do.
“He surprised me the night before with the tickets.” But that wasn’t the only surprise Jason had up his sleeve.
“The atmosphere was intimate,” Jason said. “Lee [Brice] was on stage with his guitarist and pianist sitting on bar stools and it felt as if everyone was in someone’s backyard relaxing by a fire. The energy felt very connected.
“We were standing in the bed of the truck and the moment was perfect. It felt as if that moment was crafted just for us and I knew that no matter how hard I planned and schemed I wouldn’t be able to recreate a moment like that.”
There they were, swaying together to Lee Brice’s 2014 chart-topper I Don’t Dance. Jason looked at Kimberly and asked, “Marry me?” He didn’t have a ring, just a perfect moment. Kimberly said “yes” through tears. “It was just us,” she said.
The couple plans to marry in October 2021.
What a wonderful testament to the beauty of the arts and their ability to bring people closer together.
