We have heard one too many times that if we want something badly, we need to work hard for it.

Two boys from Maine have realized that hard work does pay off.

Country music star Luke Combs graced Bangor, Maine, and completed back-to-back shows, and tickets were all sold out. Two boys, named Bo Fenderson and Tanner Hale, were lucky enough to see the show, but it was after so much work.

12-year-old Bo and his friend wanted to be at the concert so bad, but before they can even buy their tickets, their parents strikes a deal with them. The bargain had to be fulfilled, otherwise, they will not have funds enough for them to buy their tickets.

“I prayed for it to happen. I hoped, I prayed, and it happened,” Bo told WABI-TV.

Bo’s mom shared further regarding the bargain they had with their child.

“The concert was brought up and it was an immediate, yes,” Desiree Fenderson told WABI-TV. “But, the tickets were pricey so it was, ‘Well we can take you … and earn and you know if you guys could buy your own tickets, we could make a half’ and they said yes, and I think it was a great lesson for both of them, and for all of them.”

It will not be an easy approval for Bo, and to prove that he really wanted to go to his idol’s concert, he had to hold up his end of the bargain. It will be challenging, but Bo and his friend were determined to succeed.

Both boys learned a valuable lesson from their experience.

And when they were finally at the concert, they made sure that their idol singer knows what they had to do just to see him perform live.

The boys held up signs and one of the boards said “We made 100 bucks stacking 5 cords of wood, bought 2 Luke Combs tickets, man he sounds good.”

The other sign was equally eye-catching with a slogan that said “Our dads swore it was a waste of time, oh but they were wrong! Today’s my 12th birthday oh Lord when it rains it pours!”

Their unique signs caught the attention of the country music star.

Luke Combs saw the sign boards and simply could not ignore them. He went by the edge of the stage and approached the young fans who did their best just to meet him and shout for him as he sang on stage.

What Luke did next was something surprising and it made the boys jump for joy.

Luke wanted to repay them for their incredible love for him.

The country singer asked the boys how much they spent on the tickets and did the most unexpected thing.

“How much were your tickets? A hundred dollars? $200? Y’all paid $200, a hundred dollars apiece. Oh my God, I think I only got … I got $140 right here. Y’all want that, pay yourselves back. I’ll get you some more,” he said.

Luke pulled $140 and handed them to Bo and his friends. It was a surreal experience for the overjoyed fans.

Aside from the money, Luke also made sure that autographed hats were given to the young fans and took pictures with them after the sold-out show.

“I was surprised that he took the time away from his concert to sign all our stuff,” Tanner said.

The boys were thankful for their beloved country music star and are inspired by what he did for them. He taught them an amazing lesson they will never forget.

“He’s a great role model to take the time and do that, and really acknowledge what they did. It wasn’t just Luke, it was the rest of the staff too that made it happen and made it a point to come find us and the boys and fulfill that promise that he made to them. I think for all of the sisters, the cousins, and the friends that they all learned a valuable lesson,” Desiree said.
