Grammy award winning artist Adele was in Music City over the weekend, singing to a packed crowd at Bridgestone Arena. Her concert left quite a mark for two of her biggest fans.

When David McDonald drove from North Carolina to attend Adele's Nashville concert, he did not expect to take a selfie and get a signature from the artist. 

McDonald and his friend, Olivia Albertson, were in the midst of hundreds of fans Saturday night when Adele randomly pointed them out.

"She called me out because my shirt was funny," McDonald told NewsChannel 5. 

The duo got up on stage and chatted with Adele for about two minutes in front of a roaring crowd. The pop star normally calls on fans to get on stage during her concerts. 

"I'm still in shock, I can't believe it still happened," Albertson said. 

They took a selfie with her on stage, but the most surprising was when she signed his arm. Adele did warn him not to get a tattoo of it. 

"That was kind of the whole point," McDonald added. "She wrote on my freaking arm!"

He's been recognized since the concert mainly in part because he has worn the same black shirt with a tuxedo print the next day. 

McDonald did get her signature tattooed and said he sees no regret in the future. This was his first trip to Nashville and is leaving with an even bigger gift. 

"I had a dream this happened," McDonald said. "It was unlike any show I've been to and she's great and I love her!"
