    Ryan Love Thread- UPDATED

    With the recent news of Ryan deciding to leave SNC, I thought I should try to start up his love thread again. Though we are all upset that he is leaving, we are thrilled and excited that he is pursuing something he is passionate about. Thank you Ryan for sharing with us your raw talent and for reaching out to the fans on a daily basis. You will be missed!

    Much love from Vermont,
    Marianne

Sorry to hear Ryan's been under the weather lately! Hope he's feeling better. We hate to hear that any of them are sick. Would it be overkill to FedEx chicken soup to Harrah's?

So yesterday Ryan thanked Megan and I for writing about Gettysburg in our blog and saying thank you to HIM for making it such an amazing show to write about didn't seem like enough, so I decided to come here and show him some more love.

The best compliment we've received about our blog, in my opinion, is that our writing is on par with Ryan's. I LOVE reading his blogs. he has an amazing way with words and reading anything he writes always makes me smile!

Ryan cannot possibly endear himself to us more than he already does. Well, he could, but it would just be mean of him to try.

@Kristin, that is so sweet of you to think of the guys with gifts. I don't think it matters to them what you give (and I like yours, especially the tea for their throats) but they, especially Ryan, seem to love everything we do for them. I just wish he knew how much they do for us every day!

@Marianne: they probably SHOULD be nervous when they see Chasers in the crowd. :grin:

Ryan is the sweetest thing that ever walked the face of this earth.

No one makes a fan feel more welcome at the M&G than Ryan does by remembering everyone from FB and Twitter. He is just amazing! I think the SNC guys should have a contest between them at the M&G's to see who can recognize the largest number of Chasers. We can give the winner a prize of some kind. It would be fun. (Of course, Ryan would probably ALWAYS win, but it would still be fun :)

I'm loving all of these comments. I'm glad y'all had fun in Gettysburg. I've been trying to watch all of the videos to make me feel like I was there. I can't wait to see them and meet them for the first time. I wonder if any of them get nervous when they see the familiar Chaser faces in the crowd? I would just like to say that it takes an awesome and caring person to remember so many things about so many people. Ryan is just the best!!! Say it again..Ryan is the best!

@Amanda That is not weird. Ryan seems to be a great friend!

xmanderrrrx's picture

It always catches me off guard when I get to him in the meet and greet line and he says "Hi Amanda, How are you?" I know he knows my name but it's so hard to wrap my head around. It's amazing to feel that connected to someone you're such a huge fan of. I say this as if I'm surprised Ryan is amazing..but come on, seriously, when is Ryan NOT amazing? Sometimes the things he writes on twitter or says during concerts/M&G lines make me think we have way similar personalities. This may sound weird, but I kind of wish Ryan was my best friend lol

Ryan is an amazing person. I have no idea how he remembers everyone's names and little things about them. I have no idea how he finds time to chat with the fans. I have no idea how he can perform (to me it appears) so flawlessly in such weather and under less then ideal conditions.

I loved watching him sing on Friday. When all of them are on stage like that I forget that I have any favorites and my attention is torn ten ways from Sunday. But Ryan so easily grabs my attention with his easy smile and his golden voice. You can really tell that he loves what he is doing. And I love him for it.

@Terry - some tea and a book. And a highlighter. :P

What gifts did you bring Kristin?

KristinC's picture

I thought I was a Ryan fan before Gettysburg, but turns out I only THOUGHT I was a Ryan fan. He did such a great job during the show, and he was so incredibly nice to me in the M&G. He knew me when I told him what my Twitter handle was (which completely blew me away - HE knew ME!!!!), he was extremely friendly and funny, and he really seemed to like the little gifts I gave him (or at least faked it very well). He is just an awesome, awesome guy. As Lisa said below, he blesses us every day. ????

When Ryan came out on stage at the beginning of the concert, i think i may have fainted for 3 seconds. Why, you ask? Well first of all because it was 8 million degrees wit 9 million percent humdity BUT i was kind of overwhelmed with the dark suits/white shirts/no tie/ and Ryan is very tall and well, i was delirious by that point and i kept thinking "He's so tall."

i am an odd duck.
The end.

ps. In addition to being tall. That voice!!!!! AND i heard later on that he wasn't feeling 100% so that endears him even more than the tallness and the voice and the smile and the jokes. Perfection.

It's the little things like it is with all of the other guys. Yes, I realize his wife's name is Lauren. But he spelled it right in something to me. My own UNCLE has only spelled my name right once my entire LIFE!!!

Vixter, well said. God broke the mold when he made each of them. We need more people with hearts as big as the guys. The voice, the humor, the heart, the looks...how can you not be won over?

Lisa, of course Ryan was AMAZING in Gburg...sometimes he's just too awesome for words lol.

What? No love for Ryan in a week? What is that all about? Wasn't he great in Gettysburg? At least in the videos he looked and sounded great. He and Seggie have such a great blend on Come Together - wow!

I love that he plays with us on SNCTellAllTues and is so great to answer our questions.He makes it a lot of fun for the Chasers. And musically, I could listen to him sing all day long! (ok, technically I guess I do listen to him all day, but if you are reading this, there is a high probablility you do to, so don't judge) haha. By the way, if you haven't gotten his individual cd's (there are 3) you should definitely get them. They are great! You can find them on cdbaby.com #notapaidadvertisement

Ryan, in case you drop by, you are awesome and we are blessed by you daily. Thank you, friend!

Lisa, I just got around to watch the clip you posted. That was hilarious!! Ryan is so animated when he is singing. Y'all know they have performed this song sooo many times, but they act as if it is the first time every time. I also like how much he loves his entire family. I don't really get a long well with my brother, but Ryan is always commenting on his wife and sister. Nice to see men with such great family values. It's hard to come by these days.

I just came across this video and had to share. Just when I thought Ryan was perfect...I found this.

Ryan and Rome both skip out on 5 golden rings, but Tyler nails it! However, when you watch it, it just makes you love these guys even more! I don't know if Ryan and Rome couldn't sing it because it was too early for high notes, because they were cracking up, or they were messing with Tyler.

I love to watch them laugh with each other and have such a good time! This is one of my favorite clips just because of how much fun Ryan is having. ;)

Yes, Vixter, very well said. Ryan is awesome just in his musical abilities. Factor in the fact that he is just an awesome guy, you can't help but love him. I just read the blog he posted where he was apologizing for being absent, and I just can't get over how nice he was to say that. He understands the connection to the fans and how much we enjoy talking to them directly. He's the best. Can't wait until December. Sooooo excited to see them.

DottieK's picture

Well said, Vixter. I couldn't agree more!

Vixter's picture

One of the the things I like most about Ryan is his genuine kindness & interest in people. He (as well as the other guys) understands that they could sing till the cows came home but if you're not genuinely interested in your audience, they'd have no interest in you, either. His voice is so versatile. He can sing just about anything that's put in front of him. And funny! His blogs and little comments on people's profiles are absolutely hysterical! I also love that he loves his wife as much as he does. Once they created Ryan (& the rest of them), I think somebody lost the molds. You really don't see people like them around much & it's a shame!

DottieK's picture

Ryan.....thanks again for starting Tell-All-Tuesdays! It is so much fun & we love it so much! Thank you for all the time & effort you put into it!

Lisa N.'s picture

Ryan is awesome - just thought that needed to be said...again... ;)

Jeanette P.'s picture

Just wanted to check in again and express my admiration for Ryan. So....I admire Ryan. There. Love you, Ryan!!

DottieK's picture

I love Ryan's smile! I wonder how and why his eyes went from "dreamy blue" to just "blue" though? Hmmm.

KristinC's picture

@Kary: Blue eyes like that just aren't fair.
