That was nearly two years ago. And on Thursday night, that wish finally became a reality. And she even got to meet the man himself.
"He come over to me and put his hand out and shook my hand and says, 'Hi Evie, I'm so glad to meet you,' and I said, 'Oh Bob, I am so happy to meet you, I never thought this would happen,'" said 79-year-old Evie Branan.
Branan's nursing home and Bob Seger's management company got her tickets and sent her and some friends in a limo ride to the concert. And she was given a backstage pass, which got her close enough to meet the rock star.
