A Weekend at CMA Fest!

One of the best parts of living in Nashville is the music. A couple of weekends ago, our family experienced Music City at its best at the CMA Festival, all while cheering on the Preds!

We were so lucky to get to experience the weekend to the fullest, thanks to Matt's job with Sony! The first show we went to was Brothers Osborne at the Riverfront Stage (River's fave band). They were awesome and we totally recommend. Then - of course - we got CMA tees for the kids, and they were super excited about them. I had to wash River's every night so he could wear it everyday of the festival. 

Saturday morning we saw Fairground Saints (Matt did their logo!) at the Hard Rock Stage - they're a huge favorite of mine and I LOVED it! Check out River with his Fairground Saints tattoo below. 

The rest of the day we hung back on the lawn listening to lots of musicians at the Budweiser and Cracker Barrel Stage (the Budweiser sign was amazing!)


Admist all of the music excitement, the city was buzzing over the Preds! We became total hockey fans. Matt and the little ones were so into it. 

On Sunday we saw Levon (Matt did their logo, too!) and then headed to Barlines for the rest of the day to see all the acts Sony had planned. We saw Ben Gallager - a killer guitarist you should keep an eye out for - and Walker Hayes who's so fun to watch.

While we were there eating and drinking, we saw the Luke Combs coasters Matt had photographed for! Needless to say, we totally have our own set at home now. 

The kids stopped by the Sony space at the Omni Hotel and got lots of fun stuff: Miranda Lambert pink sunglasses, Kenny Chesney brush, Kane brown bag & more. They became even bigger fans of music and Music City that weekend for sure. They were so adorable and absolutely decked out!

It was a blast of a weekend, and we're all totally in love with Nashville. We saw some of the greatest music, munched on great eats like Retro Sno Cones, and got to experience the city come alive over music and hockey all at once.
