CMA Festival - My First and Only Day
If you love country music and don't mind crowds then the CMA festival is PERFECT for you. There are several different stages of live music occurring at all times during the day. The "Fanfair" section is actually affordable at only $10 per day. That is the section where all the exhibit booths are and the main place to get autographs.
It rained off and on today, but otherwise the temperature was very comfortable outside and made for a more pleasant experience. However, while walking back to the car it really starting down-pouring. I was wearing white... I could have been in a wet t-shirt contest. Sorry, no picture of that. Due to the rain (and forgetting) I didn't take many pictures. I didn't take any at all of the shows we saw (oops). Here are some that I managed to snap.
The skyline and Riverfront
Oh, the crowds...

Cumberland Park (beside the pedestrian bridge). It has a cool water area for kids to play and other innovative features.
I know there are more pictures of "Nashville" then there are of the CMA festival, but I adore Nashville. I wasn't born and raised here, but this is my hometown. It was always meant to be.
