THE

ULTIMATE

By Cory Chapman and Bob Doerschuk

COUNTRY

MUSIC

FAN

EXPERIENCE

N

ashville is renowned the world over as Music City. With a rich legacy tied to the recording industry, a bounty of talented musicians and a live entertainment scene to rival all others, it’s a well-earned distinction. Helping Nashville achieve its Music City designation is the annual CMA Music Festival − a cultural and musical extravaganza celebrated each June in the city. Since 1972, when the event originated as “Fan Fair” at Nashville’s downtown Municipal Auditorium and attracted 5,000 attendees, CMA Music Festival has continued to grow, evolve and thrive, while always entertaining and serving as a meeting place for stars and fans. In fact, the Festival remains the only event uniting more than 400 Country Music stars and celebrities with an army of fans and format loyalists. The 2013 CMA Music Festival runs June 6-9 in the heart of downtown Nashville. Dubbed “The Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience,” the event features 10 entertainment stages, ranging from daytime shows on the Chevrolet™ Riverfront Stage, the Bud Light Stage at Bridgestone Arena and more to all-star night-time shows at LP Field, home of the NFL Tennessee Titans. Stars confirmed to play at LP Field in 2013 include Gary Allan, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band and many more! Adding to the ever-expanding CMA Music Festival experience is the all-new AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X in Nashville’s newest state-of-the-art attraction − the Music City Center. Lady Antebellum helps launch this newest CMA Music Festival chapter with “Lady A Day at FFX” on Thursday, June 6, with a special acoustic performance and meet-and-greet with fans. As the weekend gets underway, the AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X experience will include an abundance of artist-fan connections, with unique ways to greet

and photograph stars. Additionally, three entertainment stages will feature performances, celebrity Q&A sessions, interactive demonstrations and more. A Fan Fair History Walk will celebrate the more than four decades of CMA Music Festival heritage, while the FFX Market Place will be a shopper’s delight. Attendees will also enjoy artist and Country Music artifacts and memorabilia presented throughout Fan Fair X. Admission to Fan Fair X is included in CMA Music Festival 4-day tickets. For fans not holding a 4-day Festival ticket, admission is available for only $10 per day or $25 for a 4-day weekend pass, inclusive of fees. Lining the streets of downtown Nashville are popular Festival hotspots including The Buckle on Broadway (1st to 5th Avenues), Transitions Performance Park and Fan Alley, connecting the two. These areas are programmed with performances, exhibits, interactive games, prizes, freebies and more. To maximize their CMA Music Festival experience, fans engage digitally. By following CMA (@CountryMusic) on Twitter, fans will be tipped off to participate in Social Media games with chances to win prizes including special access to fan photo lines, artist meet-and-greets and more. Additionally, CMA reveals talent announcements and Festival details to its Facebook network (Facebook.com/CMA). And for instant, real-time alerts on Festival updates during the event, fans are encouraged to join the CMA MOB mobile club by texting keyword FESTIVAL to 66937 (standard text and data rates apply). A free CMA Music Festival app is available now for iPhone and Android smartphones. In addition to serving Country’s most ardent fans, the Festival continues its mission to support music education through its “Keep The Music Playing” charity campaign, whereby half the proceeds from the event are donated to fund music education on behalf of the artists who donate their time to play for free at CMA Music Festival. Launched in 2006 by the Country Music Association, “Keep The Music Playing” donations to Metro Nashville schools and other music education programs have exceeded $7.6 Million.

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

I would highly recommend that visitors to Nashville experience Nashville Nightlife

Conway Twitty to Sara Evans and Toby Keith. There is entertainment for the entire family. The “Best of Country” Dinner and Show, throughout their season, includes guest stars such as “Opry Star” Jeannie Seely, “The Fiddle Man” Tim Watson, Tommy Cash, Diana Murrell, Paula Poe (from the Tammy Wynette Show) and many others. This is a fantastic show you won’t want to miss! The standing ovation at the end of the show is an indication of the great time the audience had. 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. D on’t miss this Nashville tradition.

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.

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.

DID YOU KNOW… Country singer Randy Travis was a cook and dishwasher at the Nashville Palace before he made it big. 34 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

entertainment

T

here is only one Music City, and today Nashville continues its emergence as a cultural, artistic and entertainment-rich destination, filled with unique music, a myriad of art galleries, botanical gardens and greenways, historic homes, honkytonks and culinary delights. There’s a whole host of attractions that have made Music City famous. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which includes over a million artifacts exploring country’s connections to blues, R&B and pop, will also feature the temporary exhibit, The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and California Country opening in March 2012. Across the street stands the home of the Grammy-award winning Nashville Symphony, the dazzling $123 million Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Inspired by the greatest concert halls in the world, the 197,000-square-foot classically-

Music City Walk of Fame 58 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

columned venue offers an unparalleled acoustical experience. Nashville has a pristine collection of antebellum estate mansions: Belle Meade, where a string of winning thoroughbreds was raised; The Hermitage, presidential home of Andrew Jackson; and Belmont Mansion, drenched in Victorian grandeur. Tour the beautifully-restored hilltop State Capitol building, then walk down to the Tennessee State Museum for an educational tour of the state’s history and culture. Dubbed the Athens of the South for its elegance, style and many academic institutions, Nashville claims a full-size replica of the Parthenon in Centennial Park, complete with the 42-ft high statue Athena, the tallest indoor sculpture in the western world. The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, an exquisitely converted Art Deco post office, hosts roving exhibitions changing every couple of months. The mansion at Cheekwood houses an extensive art gallery surrounded by 55 acres of divine gardens. What truly sets the city apart is the music. Music is the very heart of Nashville. Long recognized as the world’s capital of country music, Music City also boasts sounds of pop, rock, gospel, bluegrass, jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, blues and soul. Supported by rhythm tracks of culture and history, Nashville is uniquely and authentically “Music City.” In Nashville you can hear great music 24/7, 365 days a year. A great place to begin a tour is on Lower Broadway where honky tonks line the street. Here you’ll find evocative names like Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and Robert’s Western World, and you never know who you might see (or hear), a current star or the next big thing.

Live Music Concert with Keith Urban

You’ll catch star-dusted pickers and songwriters all over town, in places like bluegrass venue Station Inn, the rockin’ Exit/In, the honky tonkin’ bars on Broadway, the song-centered Bluebird Café or the legendary Ryman Auditorium. Of course, the ultimate country venue is the Grand Ole Opry House, where legends and current stars perform on the nation’s longest-running live radio program. Eating and drinking are high on the list of priorities. Nashville’s palate offers everything from Southen fare to haute cuisine with quite literally everything in between. Here, a perfect barbecue is as celebrated as the most spectacular creation from any of the city’s award-winning chefs. Whether it’s a family-friendly meal, dinner and a show or a romantic repast, the city’s restaurants serve every dish with a side of Southern hospitality. With its charming mix of musical, historical and cultural flavors, Nashville is truly a city for all seasons and styles. So whether it’s listening to live music, soaking in the art scene, exploring history or simply relaxing, you’ll find many ways to enjoy Music City and discover why music calls us home.
