I met Austin Carlile 2/3/14 on the American Dream Tour in Orlando. It was the best day ever. I had been waiting in line for maybe 2 or 3 hours already and I had already gone back and looked at the buses. I was able to meet Jordan Fish of BMTH and Tyler Carter of Issues. I went back again and a group of fans were standing by the buses just hanging out. Austin came out from the venue with a couple girls and he was taking them to their limo and he saw us and one fan was like “hey austin can we have some pictures?” and he’s like “yeah, when I get back! I promise!” and he came back like 5 minutes later. When he came back, he started talking to us all about the new album and what we thought of it and stuff. I asked for a picture with him and he smiled and took my phone and took like 3 pictures with me. and I wanted to give him a hug but I was so nervous and just so in shock that I was actually meeting him so I was just like “uh hi austin.. can i have a hug?” and he smiled really big and he was like “yeah of course! awh you’re so cute!” and he gave me a hug and it was great. Then he signed my phone case for me. (fun fact: Austin Carlile used to work at chick-fil-a in fort myers florida)
