Hey friends…….gather round I have a story for everyone……………..
Do you know where I was on my 21st Birthday? I was at Cowboys Stadium for the DCC Finals! Yup, you heard me just a few years before they started the show on CMT I was one of those anxious girls in booty shorts! Let me say I LOVE that show but I am so glad they didn’t have it when I was there, I mean who wants to see them say bad things about you on TV and at the time I was such a rookie I didn’t fit in.
I made it thru all the rounds and on my 21st Birthday my parents and I drove to Dallas and I competed in the final round where I was then cut. This was my FIRST professional try out and I had no idea what I was getting into. Fast forward to my AFL & NBA try outs and heck ya I was made up, tan and fully rhinestoned out!! But the DCC being my first professional audition I had on a plain red sports bra and hot pants and at this time I was in between blonde & brown hair (blonde streaks) and I was so plain compared to everyone else. I still remember my solo like it was yesterday and yes I did the famous kick line!!
Somethings they different when I tried out was…
1. I took a 50 question test over the NFL that I studied a week for
2. 1 on 1 interviews on that day, yes I interviewed with Kelli & Judy
3. I had to weigh in and sign a 5 pound contract, I could not loose or gain 5 pounds without permission

It was a long long day and in the end I didn’t make the team and in my interview I was told I was “Too All American looking and they already have alot of that look”  but it is such a neat experience and a cool way to remember my 21st Birthday. I think that I why I love the show so much, you guys should check it out….Friday’s on CMT!
