FROM NASHVILLE CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU: NCVC Partners with Nashville Dancin’ for July 4th
"Re-cap of the first two weeks of Nashville Dancin'Big thanks to everyone attending the first two weeks of Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General! The first week of Nashville Dancin’ kicked off with the funky rhythms of Belmont boys, The Lonely Biscuits, and the soulful southern rock roots sounds of 18 South. As the sun dipped low on the horizon, the heartfelt blues music of Tommy Malone kept the crowd engaged. The evening was capped off with the jam-band sound and jambalaya goodness of Donna the Buffalo's tunes, which had the whole Riverfront up and moving.
The second Thursday night in this free summer concert series turned out to be just as exciting! A great crowd turned out for some remarkable performances. Britt Ronstadt provided a jumpstart to the festivities with her unique, sweet voice and soulful renditions. By the time Raelyn Nelson took the stage, the entire crowd was in full swing. As dusk fell on the beautiful downtown Nashville skyline, the McCrary Sisters had everyone on their feet and singing along to some great gospel tunes. Royal Southern Brotherhood continued the dancing with their thundering rock ‘n’ roll sounds of the south, and as a special treat, the band brought Britt Ronstadt out for a collaborative performance. Finishing off the night in true Dancin’ style, Shooter Jennings closed out a fun-filled night of entertainment on the RIverfront and delivered an unforgettable show.
As part of Nashville Dancin’ charitable donation efforts, concert goers were able to lend their support to the Monroe Carrell Jr. Foundation, the PENCIL Foundation, and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation by purchasing event t-shirts designed by local artists Ryan McCauley and Sheila B. T-shirts were made available at Music City’s first mobile fashion truck, The Trunk. Guests washed down the sweet sounds of the night with some quality crafted Tennessee Ole Smoky Moonshine, and chowed down on yummy eats provided by local food trucks.
Be sure to visit us this Thursday for the third installment of Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General on the beautiful downtown Nashville Riverfront."

Another Great Year at the CMA’s!
Thousands of people from all over the world crowded into downtown Nashville, TN. Each of our vacation rentals were full of families and friends here for the CMA's. Two lovely ladies (who are sisters) stayed in our upstairs suite for the week. Every morning they would come down around 7:30AM ready to go another day not returning until 2:00 in the morning, what amazing women! Their comment about it all was, “it’s just so much fun!”
These women are more than fans. They know the stars and the stars know them. One day they took a guitar with them to have country stars sign it. They said they were taking it back to the restaurant they own in Arkansas where the guitar was going up on the wall. As a matter of fact, they said the restaurant's walls are covered with country stars picture's taken with the two ladies.
These ladies reported that from their experience at the CMA's, there was lots of free food, as vendors lined the streets. I asked them if there was music in the streets and they said there was music everywhere you walked!
These ladies absolutely love Nashville and come back every year. I asked one sister why and she said, "the people in Nashville are good people." She went on to say she watched how the City handled the big flood a few years ago and observed how they all pitched in and helped each other in their time of need. This really impressed her. It’s true, Nashville is a friendly City and we hear that from our guests all the time.
We hope you can come to next year's CMA events. Be sure to find your lodging early as people begin making their reservations a year in advance. We hope you don't need the CMA's as an excuse to visit Nashville, as Nashville IS Music City, and there is always something fun going on here, so we hope to see you soon!

"Y'all come and see us in Music City, USA, ya hear!" ~ Jack and Lee
Jack and Lee
Our Story began in 1970 when we were married in Long Beach, California and moved into a little 3 bedroom home in Huntington Beach. Jack worked for a Bank and they often had visiting bankers from other countries come and check out the American banking system. There was one young Japanese man that Jack really liked, so he asked him if he would like to come to our home for the weekend and be with our family and see how Americans live. That was the beginning of our love for hospitality. It's been forty one years since our first guest slept on our old rickety, broken down sleeper sofa. Since then, we've had the nations come to us. What a rich experience for our family to have wonderful people come and stay in our Home! Our friends and relatives would often call our home "Jack and Lee's Bed and Breakfast!" That's where "Jack and Lee"s B & B" came into being. We welcome you with Southern Hospitality to our homes!
