F

ans will soon be packing bags, hitting the road, and taking to the streets as downtown Nashville transforms into the world’s hottest Country Music scene for the 2017 CMA Music Festival, set for Thursday through Sunday, June 8-11. Last year, there were more than 500 artists and celebrities who participated in more than 250 hours of concerts on 11 stages (seven of which were free). Free stages will be back, including the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage, Chevrolet Park Stage, and the Budweiser Forever Country Park Stage. Along with several of the outdoor stages, there will also be free hands-on activities from partner booths, and a variety of food trucks on-site. Fan Fair X (inside Music City Center) will also be a mustsee with artist booths, meet and greets, a marketplace, interactive experiences, and three stages including the CMA Close Up Stage, Radio Disney Country Stage and Durango Music Spot. The CMA Close Up Stage, the crown jewel of the Fan Fair X experience, will feature artist performances, interactive panels, informative presentations, and more. Every night when the sun goes down, fans pack the sold-out Nissan Stadium to party along with their favorite superstars. This year’s headliners include Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, and Chris Young. If you don’t have a four-day CMA Fest pass, be sure to check out the CMA Fest Nash Pass. This pass includes 4-day Fan Fair X tickets, admission to the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, self-guided tour of Ryman Auditorium, plus VIP seating at the free Ascend Amphithe-

ater nightly concerts for just $50. The CMA Fest Nash Pass can be purchased at Opry.com/NashPass. Additional Fan Fair X activities and stage lineups will continue to be announced. Stay up-to date by visiting CMAfest.com, downloading the Official CMA Fest App, or connecting through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. CMA Music Festival has a long rich history in downtown Nashville. In 1972, the Country Music Association launched CMA Music Festival as Fan Fair™ as a way to bring artists and fans together. The first Fan Fair drew 5,000 people to downtown Nashville. Since then, the Festival attendance has skyrocketed, with tickets selling out for the past six years, and with an average daily attendance of around 88,000 in 2016. In 2001, CMA added an important benefit to CMA Fest when it launched a Festival-related charity program, the CMA Foundation. Since then, the CMA Foundation has continued to expand, donating more than $17.5 million to support quality, sustainable music education initiatives across the country with funds generated through CMA Music Festival ticket sales. This level of support is made possible by the fact that artists participate in the event for free! May/June 2017

Explore its rich entertainment history and how the Ryman became known as the “Carnegie Hall of South” during the years when Caruso and Sousa performed, Theodore Roosevelt spoke, and Houdini escaped in the 5th Avenue vestibule timeline. Then, take your place center stage, grab a guitar and step up to the microphone while you have your photo taken on the legendary planks.

Visit the Ryman Gift Shop and take a piece of music history home with you! Find exclusive Ryman merchandise including tee-shirts, Hatch Show Prints, and novelty memorabilia along with specialty CDs and DVDs. Open daily from 9 am until 7 pm with extended hours during events.

In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, Tennessee, the first combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of luscious caramel, creamy marshmallow nougat and fresh roasted peanuts all covered in real milk chocolate, the Goo Goo Cluster has been delighting Nashvillians and visitors to Music City ever since. Goo Goo Clusters were originally hand dipped and sold without wrappers under glass at drug store candy counters. With the dawn of hand wrapping, a team of ladies was responsible for swaddling the Goo Goo Clusters in tin foil before they were sold. Eventually, machinery was put in place to automate wrapping the candy. Today, the process is so streamlined that Standard Candy Company in Nashville can produce 20,000 clusters in one hour! In the years since the birth of the Original Goo Goo Cluster, the company has introduced two new flavors to their product line: the Supreme, which replaces peanuts with pecans, and the Peanut Butter, a peanut butter center sprinkled with crunchy peanuts then covered in real milk chocolate. Over the last two years, other exciting additions to the brand’s offerings are the flagship retail store, the Goo Goo Shop, and the Goo Goo Shop Dessert Bar. Located in the SoBro area of downtown Nashville, the retail store and cafe give visitors the opportunity to walk through history as they peruse a 100+ year timeline complete with artifacts from the Goo Goo archives, feast their eyes upon Premium Goo Goos being made by hand in a glassed-encased confectionery kitchen and satisfy their sweet tooth with delicious baked treats, gourmet confections, and ice cream. The Goo Goo Shop is the exclusive retailer of Premium Goo Goos, 4-ounce candies made with a wide variety of inclusions. The Premium menu rotates periodically and new, unique flavors are introduced on a regular basis, with four to six options available on any given day.

ake a walk through the historic, mythical and trailblazing career of Virginia Patterson Hensley, better known to the world as the iconic Patsy Cline. Nashville’s newest museum houses the largest collection of Patsy Cline artifacts in the world. Locked away for over 50 years, personal artifacts, letters, photographs, costumes, clothing, and household furnishings from her Nashville dream house help to pay homage to Cline’s storied personal and professional life. Patsy Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley of humble beginnings and began to experience a career that was about to launch her into superstardom until it was ended too early due to the tragic plane crash that took her life in 1963. Patsy landed her first recording contract with Four Star Records in 1955, but saw her biggest success when signing with Decca Records, which released her debut project in 1957. In her five and a half year charting career, she scored hits like Walkin’ After Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, Crazy, She’s Got You, Leavin’ On Your Mind, So Wrong and many others. Patsy Cline became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1960 and broke many ceilings for women. She was the first female to receive headline billing over her male tour-mates and the first female to not only anchor a Las Vegas Casino, but also to perform at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Despite all these accomplishments and the amazing fact that she has impacted generations of fans more than

50 years after her passing, fans had previously never had a museum to visit to honor her legacy. The opening of the Patsy Cline Museum represents this opportunity for fans, in the very town whose sound she was so influential in creating. Another exciting first for fans is the opportunity to purchase licensed apparel and collectables; never before available. Guests will travel back to her humble beginnings in Winchester, VA and see family photos, possessions and even the very booth she waitressed as a teenager at Gaunt’s Drugstore. Never-before-seen costumes that exhibit her transition from western cowgirl to torch singing headliner will also be on display. Many of the costumes exhibited are creations designed and sewn by her mother, Hilda. Guests will have the unique opportunity to step inside Patsy’s famed Rec Room, where many famous entertainers dropped in to jam and party in the dream home Patsy purchased on Nella Drive in Goodlettsville, TN. The room contains original furnishings owned and used by Cline and her husband Charlie Dick. A vintage jukebox broadcasts her mega- hit “Crazy,” highlighting its distinction as the most programmed jukebox song of all time. A bio film documents Patsy’s career and is hosted by noted actress Beverly D’Angelo, who played the role of Patsy Cline in the 1980 film “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” D’Angelo was nominated for a Golden Globe award for her role in the film. Located at 119 Third Avenue South, the Patsy Cline Museum is located on the second level of the building which houses the world renowned Johnny Cash Museum. Guests are educated and entertained via cutting-edge audio and touch screen technology featuring Cline’s numerous audio and video performances. The museum is open daily from 9 AM – 7 PM CT.

NUDIE’S HONKY TONK

T

EMBELLISHES BROADWAY WITH COSTUMES, ARTIFACTS, FOOD & MUSIC

he world-famous Nudie’s Honky Tonk is now open on Broadway in Nashville featuring a three-story entertainment complex housing memorabilia, costumes, multiple bars, stages, and Southern style comfort food for patrons. This must-see attraction celebrates the life of Nudie Cohn and the unforgettable mark he made sewing together Hollywood glamour and country culture. “The rhinestone cowboy couture was founded in the hands of Nudie Cohn,” says owner Bill Miller, who also founded Music City’s award-winning Johnny Cash Museum, and is prepping the opening of the Patsy Cline Museum. “This attraction serves not only as a historical record of the epicenter where fashion perfectly fused country and Hollywood cultures, but also provides a museumlike environment for patrons to enjoy great food, drinks and live music.” Ukrainian-born Nuta “Nudie” Kotlyarenko and his wife, Bobbie, started their world-renowned fashion brand from their garage in the 1940’s. Nudie’s Rodeo Tailor fashions were donned by the hottest in film and music including Gene Autry, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Robert Redford, Porter Wagner and John Wayne, and more. One of Nudie’s most recognized, ostentatious contributions on display is Elvis Presley’s $10,000 gold lame’ suit that he wore on the cover of the “50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong” album. Nudie didn’t stop at clothing. He also customized automobiles, installing silver-dollar dashboards, pistol

door handles and gear shifts, extending rear bumpers and trimming vehicles with longhorn steer horns as hood ornaments. Nine “Nudie Mobiles” survive today, with his $400,000 1975 Cadillac El Dorado finding a permanent home on the wall at Nudie’s Honky Tonk. In addition to Nudie’s iconic vintage suits and country music artifacts, Broadway’s newest offering houses three live performance spaces and Nashville’s longest bar at more than 100 feet. This remarkable destination, located at 409 Broadway, is open Monday-Thursday from 11AM to 3AM, and Friday-Sunday from 10AM to 3AM.

t’s no secret that many of the biggest stars in Nashville’s music history got their start at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis; the original address of Sun Records. Such legendary performers as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and even Conway Twitty passed through the historic studios of Sam Phillips throughout their careers. That legacy is celebrated at the Sun Diner located at 105 Third Ave. S in downtown Nashville. The diner serves as a tribute to the music that came from Phillips’ studio. “The musical histories of Nashville and Memphis are forever intertwined with each other, with so many artists beginning their career at Sun before taking their music to Nashville – and all over the world,” said Adam Hesler, President of TC Restaurant Group, the company which owns the establishment and hopes to continue the tribute to Sun Records in cities across the country. Continuing with the theme of making history, Sun Diner is Nashville’s first 24-hour restaurant to be located in the downtown area of Music City. “We are excited about being Nashville’s first 24-hour diner to open, especially right off of Broadway in the heart

of the Honky Tonk district,” says TC’s Hesler. “Because of the uniqueness of our always being open, we serve a wide variety of dishes – ranging from dinner to breakfast – for those going home after a night on Broadway, or for those about to start their day downtown.” The restaurant is a hot destination for tourists – and locals – who are looking for one last taste of southern hospitality during the early morning hours. The menu at the Sun Diner will most definitely take on a Memphis flavor with such listings as the “Love Me” Tenders – named after the classic Presley hit, as well as the “Cry, Cry, Cry” Hot Wings – with its name taken from the first major hit record from “The Man In Black.” Among the entrees include the “Million Dollar Quartet,” with its moniker taken from the iconic December 1956 session at the label with Presley, Lewis, Cash, and Carl Perkins. Consumers will get to pick their choice of four items among such delicious fare as Crispy Bacon, Sausage Patty, Chef Thomas’ Hash Browns, Cage-free organic eggs any style, Pancake, Waffle, and Granola Parfait.

adame Tussauds, the world-renowned wax attraction, is set to open its newest attraction in Music City April 2017. The multi-sensory experience will make guests the star of the show while getting up close and personal with some of the world’s biggest musical talents. Built to honor Nashville and its deep roots in America’s music history, Madame Tussauds will host visitors from around the globe as they enjoy a musical journey through time alongside a colorful cast of figures. The Nashville location will be the first Madame Tussauds worldwide that will center its focus on one theme, music. The beloved brand is excited to be opening an attraction in the U.S. that focuses solely on the lyrical icons that have shaped the musical landscape of America. Kicking off the project with a groundbreaking ceremony in July of 2016, Madame Tussauds Nashville’s construction is making headway with the sounds of hammers steadfastly working toward the April 2017 opening. Crews have been working tirelessly to transform the space, creating vivid and authentic scenery that will become the backdrop to the dynamic cast of wax figures. Several music heavy-hitters have already been announced as permanent residents of the brand’s newest locale. Music royalty hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville will include Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Johnny Cash, Minnie Pearl and Little Jimmy Dickens. More artists will continue to be added to the bill as the attraction nears completion. Madame Tussauds has been generating excitement within the Nashville community, hosting several surprise figure reveal events prior to the location’s impending opening. The late Minnie Pearl made her figure debut to Nashville residents and the television viewing audiences around the country, alongside her family members in the city’s annual Christmas parade this

December. Adoring fans waved and cheered as she cruised down Broadway atop a Gray Line bus. Little Jimmy Dickens’ figure also made a splash on the scene as the Grand Ole Opry legend’s close friend and country superstar, Brad Paisley, introduced Dickens’ look alike on the iconic Opry at the Ryman stage. Paisley paid tribute to his late friend with a performance of his favorite Dickens’ song, to the delight of the crowd. And current Country superstar, Blake Shelton’s figure made its debut on NBC’s TODAY Show on February 27th, while Luke Bryan chose the stage of his Madison Square Garden concert on March 1st to take the first peek at his wax figure. Attendees of the attraction will not only be allowed, but encouraged to have fun and interact with the figures. Take a selfie with Queen Bey, rock out next to T-Swift or sing a bar with the Man in Black. Early bird tickets are now available for guests to purchase in order to be among the first to experience the one-of-a-kind attraction. These limited-time-only tickets offer visitors $5 off the regular ticket price. These special Early Bird tickets are redeemable through the end of 2017, after the attraction opens the rate will return to the standard rate of $24 for adults and $19 for children ages 3-12. Ages two and under are always free. Viewing the unrivaled craftsmanship of each figure is truly an experience that cannot be missed, each Madame Tussauds figure is a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months of extensive research and take more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds’ legacy. To stay apprised of all Madame Tussauds Nashville happenings, connect with the attraction on social media.

Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater “A Must See in Nashville”

A

re you looking for some good ole’ home cooking, exceptional Southern Hospitality and live entertainment that will have you singing along and tapping your feet? Then Nashville Nightlife is definitely the place to go! We recently had the pleasure of a night out at the theater. We were warmly greeted at the door and given our tickets. We browsed the lobby area where we found unique, one-of-a-kind souvenirs and gifts. Before long, the hostess called our name and personally seated our party in the dinner theater. A smiling, friendly waitress took our beverage order and directed us to the buffet table. There we found a lovely salad bar and a first-class buffet with country fried chicken and ribs as their entrees that night, complete with all the fixins’. Everything was homemade right down to the peach cobbler for dessert. I had the warm feeling of being in my grandma’s kitchen. Once the entertainment starts, I guarantee you will be dancing in your seat. We were treated to such a wide variety of music from Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, and Conway Twitty to Sara Evans and Toby Keith. There is

Following the show there is a meet and greet with the performers. I would highly recommend that visitors to Nashville experience Nashville Nightlife where you will see the best of country from old to new. Come see why the Nashville Nightlife Dinner Theater presents a Dinner and Country Music Show voted the best combination in Nashville. Don’t miss this Nashville tradition.

DOWNTON ABBEY® AT CHEEKWOOD

E

xtravagance, aristocracy and fashion are a few of the words that come to mind when one thinks of the PBS hit series Downton Abbey®, but what most people don’t realize is that the Cheek Family of Nashville, Tennessee, shared many parallels with the Crawley family in the late 1920s. In a time where the aristocrats of Europe were struggling to maintain their estates and prized possessions following WWI, many Americans were given the opportunity to capitalize on the financial downturn occurring overseas. Mabel and Leslie Cheek, Sr., were two of the Americans making the journey across the Atlantic to fill train cars full of architectural elements from those homes being demolished or sold, and that is what essentially makes Cheekwood even more special than its peer institutions. This is just one of the reasons that makes Cheekwood a perfect fit for Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times®, opening this June. The exhibit will be on display from June 17- September 10 in the newly restored, historic Cheek Mansion. With the reveal of the mansion, coinciding with the Dressing Downton opening, visitors will be able to put both Cheekwood history and Downton Abbey in the same context. “Particularly in that Downton Abbey is such a well-researched show in actually telling accurate historical narratives and those actual narratives that happened in real life informed the way Cheekwood was able to be produced for the Cheek family,” explained Leslie Jones, Vice President of Museum Affairs/Curator Decorative Arts. The exhibit will feature 36 of Downton Abbey’s most exquisite costumes. From Anna’s lady’s maid dress all the way to Lady Mary’s breathtaking beaded evening gowns, there is a little slice of history and magic in each piece. While there will not be any of the Crawley sisters’ wedding dresses on display, the debutante gowns will not disappoint. When asked what she was most excited about with Dressing Downton and completing the restoration Jones

Cheekwood Cheek Family Archives

remarked, “I think in terms of content of the exhibition, I was happy to hear the almost sheer duplicate relevance of the debutante gowns with Cheekwood History. In the series, Rose is presented to the king and queen in 1923, so 12 years later in 1935 Huldah Cheek was presented to the queen in London as well and we have photographs of her in her debutante gown which is very similar to these. It really brings all of this home – we have a really close connection and that will help us relate our history to our audience.” Visitors have much to look forward to in their upcoming visits to the 55-acre American Country Place Era Estate this summer while Dressing Downton is on display. Not only will guests be able to view the stunning costumes from Downton Abbey in a beatifully restored 1930s mansion, but they will also have the option to experience a traditional English High Tea and other Downton related programming throughout the summer. “I think it will bring new audiences to Cheekwood,” commented Jones. ”It really offers us a lot of different opportunities to reach out to not only the Nashville community, but Middle Tenneesee, and also a national community because it’s such an underserved moment in history, and we are now able to bring forth something of a really high quality.” For more information visit cheekwood.org.

music city trivia & fun facts

DIDYOUKNOW? DID YOU KNOW… The amount on the price tag on Minnie Pearl’s hat was $1.98. The Centerville native and Grand Ole Opry star would eventually buy a home next door to the Governor’s Mansion on Curtiswood Lane in Nashville. DID YOU KNOW… That President Theodore Roosevelt coined the phrase “good to the last drop”, words that became a national slogan, after sipping coffee at Maxwell House Hotel. The coffee was a local product of the Cheek family. Their family home is now Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville’s Athena Parthenos is the tallest indoor sculpture in the Western world. She stands an impressive 42 feet high in the temple of the Parthenon. DID YOU KNOW… Elvis recorded more than 200 of his songs at RCA’s Historic Studio B on Music Row. The red, blue and green lights found in the studio are a remnant from one of Elvis’s Christmas albums. Unable to get in the holiday spirit while recording in July, he was having trouble finishing the album. The crew solved the problem by installing holiday-colored lights, putting up an artificial Christmas tree in the corner and cranking the air conditioner up as high as it would go to create the festive atmosphere. DID YOU KNOW… Country singer Randy Travis was a cook and dishwasher at the Nashville Palace before he made it big. 54 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

DID YOU KNOW… Belle Meade Plantation was famous for breeding thoroughbred horses. Iroquois, bred at the Belle Meade Farm, was the first American horse to win the English Derby. In addition to Iroquois, there were two other famous horses that can trace their lineage back to Belle Meade: Seabiscuit and War Admiral, both made popular again by the 2011 best-selling novel. For generations removed, the 1930’s horses were descendents of the sires of Bonnie Scotland, Belle Meade’s prize horse, making the family rivalry at the Plantation run deep. DID YOU KNOW… In 1941, Nashville was granted the first FM license in the United States. Music City then became the first to enjoy static-free radio. DID YOU KNOW… The Frist Center for Visual Arts is located in what was formerly Nashville’s main post office, a city landmark, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The Center went to great lengths to preserve the historical integrity of the building, as the building itself is a work of art. DID YOU KNOW… African-American artist and native Nashvillan Will Edmonson was the first black to be honored with a one-man exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Edmonson, the son of former slaves, created primitive limestone carvings of animals, angels, Biblical characters, and even celebrities. A photo spread of his work in Harper’s Bazaar led to the historic 1937 exhibit in New York City. Today, his works are on display at Cheekwood.


DID YOU KNOW… Nashville was founded on Christmas Eve 1779 along the banks of the Cumberland River. Two teams of pioneers set forth from the Carolinas to found the new city. Upon arrival, they immediately began building Fort Nashborough. Among the pioneers was Rachel Donelson, who would later become the wife of Andrew Jackson. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage: Home of President Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States, boasts a driveway in the shape of a guitar. Legend says that the driveway was so shaped to please his daughter-in-law Emily. Nashvillians like to think it was a good sign of things to come. DID YOU KNOW… Standard Candy Company, founded in 1901, created the GooGoo, a true Nashville delight marrying peanuts, caramel, marshmallow and milk chocolate together for a tasty cluster of candy. Today Standard Candy Company uses more than 3 million pounds of chocolate a year. Legend has it that GOO stands for Grand Ole Opry. DID YOU KNOW… After a May 1885 sermon given by the Reverend Sam Jones at a tent revival, Captain Tom Ryman became an instant convert and immediately began raising funds to build a church. Upon his death in 1904, the church he built as the Union Gospel Tabernacle, was renamed in his honor - Ryman Auditorium. The iconic venue would later host such performers as Enrico Caruso, Katharine Hepburn, and Bob Hope, as well as the Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974. Not surprisingly, in 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2011, the Ryman was named Theatre of the Year by Pollstar Magazine. Today, the Ryman is open for tours during the day and for concerts by artists of all genres at night.

DID YOU KNOW… Oprah Winfrey was raised in Nashville by her father Vernon Winfrey. While a sophomore at Tennessee State University (TSU), she was hired as a news anchor at WTVF-TV/News Channel 5, making her the first female and first African American in Nashville to hold such a job. DID YOU KNOW… That the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is an architectural wonder in itself? One side of the building is a RKO-style radio tower while the main building, with windows resembling a piano keyboard, ends in a Cadillac tailfin-style flourish. DID YOU KNOW… President Richard Nixon was onstage when the Grand Ole Opry broadcast its first show in the new Opry House in 1974. The former President played “God Bless America” on the piano and Roy Acuff showed him how to yo-yo. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville is known the world over as “Music City” because WSM radio announcer David Cobb referred to Nashville with that nickname in 1950 on Red Foley’s NBC radio broadcast. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage Hotel which has hosted several political and entertainment figures including John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Al Capone since it opened its doors in 1910 is the only Five-Star, Five Diamond property in the state of Tennessee. DID YOU KNOW… The Union Station Hotel, a National Historic Landmark since 1977, was originally built in 1900 as the city’s railroad station. May/June 2017
