The big word this year at the CMA Music Fest was WEATHER!  I’ve been coming to this fest since I moved down here almost 10 years ago and every year seems hotter than the last…until 2012. Someone has been making deals with Mother Nature because she decided to ease up on the crews that work […]

OK, finally… the temperature is a little more bearable.  The star performer tonight was Brad Pailsey and he too ended the show with fireworks. I forgot to mention that a portion of the proceeds from the entire 4 day event will go towards the flood victims of Nashville.   Country Music fans are an amazing group […]

Saturday @ CMA Music Fest

Yep….still hot outside.  I think I’m going to lose 5 lbs just this weekend. 🙂 I first stopped out at LP Field to see how the ‘ were going for the evening concerts.  Rascal Flatt’s drummer Jim Riley has got a nice new kit from Ludwig.  It’s monsterous…and full of Shure mics! I then went over […]

Later on, […]
