CMA Fest

Last week, I flew to Nashville Tennessee for the Country Music Festival!  This was my first time in Nashville and definitely not my last.  Every big name in country music shows up for this event.  Concerts are either very inexpensive or free!  Downtown is lined with honkeytonks where live bands play all day and night.

We had nose bleed seats, but the phenomenal concert made up for that!
Zac Brown Band, Sara Evans, Jason Aldean & Brad Paisley (just to name a few)!

{Ty Herndon - one of my all time faves}

Such a fun trip full of sun, laughter and plenty of fried food (which we washed down with a few beverages).
It is safe to say I was "in my element" and am so glad I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream to see Nashville.
The only downside: I never got around to doing karaoke, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I will most definitely do it next time! Watch out Nashville!
