CMA Fest

I'm not into the crowds downtown during CMA Fest, but since my coworker offered me free tickets to see the final night's show at LP Field, I took him up on it and brought my friend VB.

It was hot and jam-packed full of people, but we grabbed a beer at Honky Tonk Central, enjoyed their live band, then walked over the pedestrian bridge to the stadium.

Due to a thunderstorm warning, they abbreviated the show a LOT.  And by a lot, I mean artists who should have played for half an hour played like one song.  BOO.  But I got to see a number of people I've never seen perform live:  Lee Greenwood, Gary Allan, Brad Paisley, Charlie Daniels, Lennon & Maisy, The Band Perry, Jake Owen, and Carrie Underwood.

We were in the freebie nosebleeds, so we weren't too disappointed to call it an early Sunday night (especially since I was out until 1am the night prior!).  But it was kind of a nice way to take in the country music scene for an evening.  And I got to spend more time with VB, which is always a win!


  1. I need to come to Nashville - looks so fun all the time!! :)

    Thanks for your comment - I figured i was due for a snark! :)

    1. Like I said... you aren't a real blogger until you get some nasty comments. And you know you've REALLY made it when you find yourself on GOMI, either as a GOMI or a SOMI. (Atlantic-Pacific and Kendi are SOMIs.)
