Early instruction on the value of money is crucial for children. Kids may find it more satisfying to earn what they want rather than asking their parents to pay for it.
Recently, two young children worked incredibly hard to pay for the tickets to their favorite country artist’s concert themselves. It paid off greatly when they received a special shout-out from the singer himself.
One of the top country music stars right now is Luke Combs. Hit songs including “When It Rains It Pours,” “Beautiful Crazy,” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart” are among his best known.
Bo Fenderson, 12, and his pal Tanner, also 12, knew they had to attend the singer’s concert when it was scheduled for Bangor, Maine.
But the cost of concert tickets is high. Bo’s mother Desiree said to TV5, “The concert was brought up and it was an immediate, yes.” But the cost of the tickets was high.
The boys’ parents agreed that they could attend as long as they could afford the tickets themselves. The hardworking youngsters started working right away and were hired to stack wood.
The guys were on their way to see Luke Combs perform after winning $100 each. They managed to secure first-class tickets not far from the stage, and by holding up a poster explaining their journey, they made sure everyone realized how hard they had to work to be there.
Their poster stated, “We made $100 stacking 5 cords of wood, bought 2 Luke Combs tickets.” He sounds great, man. Oh, but our fathers were mistaken. They swore it was a waste of time. My 12th birthday is today, and, Lord, when it rains, it pours.
Luke Combs noticed the message and interrupted his performance to give the children a special shout-out.
He stopped to talk to the lads and was astounded that they had made so much money on their own. He then made the decision to take extreme action.
He dug into his pocket and produced $140 in cash, which he then presented to them as payment. I only have $140 in this location. If you want that, then repay yourself. Combs promises, “I’ll get you some more.”
In the video, Combs can be seen signing the boys’ hats and promising to buy them “shirts and things” after the performance.
He approached us, and we managed to meet him. Bo said, “I thought that was extremely cool.
Later, backstage, the country music star met up with the lads and their families and posed for pictures with the children. The country singer went above and beyond to make their parents’ night even more memorable, which moved their parents.
He actually took the time to honor what they done, Desiree said, calling him a terrific role model. Not just Luke, but the rest of the crew also worked to make it happen and made an effort to track down the boys and us in order to keep his promise to them.
These young people not only attended a concert they will never forget, but they also gained insight into the value of perseverance.
Hard work and kindness are the two things in life that matter most, according to Bo.
Tanner added, “Work is rewarded.
Luke Combs has developed a reputation for being incredibly kind to his concertgoers. He recently made news after refunding the audience for a concert because his voice wasn’t in the best condition, despite the fact that he played the entire event.
