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!
