CMA Fest in Nashville 2012

Despite growing up just outside Nashville, I had never attended CMA Fest until this year back in June.  (Although I do recall when it was known as Fan Fair back in the day.)

A friend of mine offered me an extra ticket she had to go on Saturday and Sunday nights of the festival.  I happen to enjoy some country music, and I love doing things in Nashville that are considered very "Nashville" things to do.  Granted, most Nashvillians clear out for all of the country music fans that descend on the city.  Seriously - a friend drove a hotel shuttle all weekend and met people from 31 states and 3 countries.

I donned my cowgirl boots and dressed the part for the show Saturday night.


Here I am at LP Field with the gals, ready for the show to start!


On Saturday night, we saw Kenny Rodgers, Eric Church, Faith Hill, and Luke Bryan along with some other smaller acts I cannot recall.  Eric Church and Luke Bryan were my two favorite of the night.  That Luke Bryan can dance!


On Sunday, I put the cowgirl boots back out and headed downtown again.


I know our skyline is small, but I really love it.  This is definitely home.


The Sunday night concert included Scott McCreery, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Alan Jackson and Martina McBride.  I particularly enjoyed Dierks Bentley this night.  And if he needed a girlfriend, I would probably volunteer.  He's a cutie!


I love a lot of different kinds of music, but I can't say that country is a "go to" for me when I want some tunes.  Nonetheless, I definitely like some of it, and it was super fun to get to go and enjoy a mix of this music that Nashville is known for.
