Story time. So I went with a girl I had been dating to a John Mayer show at the Wharf in Gulf Shores. She was a crazy John Mayer fan and I was 'meh'. Didn't even own a single song he'd ever recorded. I wasn't expecting much, I knew some of his songs but only the popular ones.
He stood up on that ...
