Has anyone ever been? Or been to any other big music festivals, or have plans to hit any up this summer?
I am SO excited. I'm obviously a huge country fan and have intentions of possibly moving to Nashville to work in the country music industry, so I am beyond thrilled to go there for the first time!
My tentative schedule is craaaazy though... so many shows to see and people to try to meet!!! My week goes something like this:
Monday, June 7th
* City of Hope Charity softball game... tons of people playing in it... Carrie, Julianne Hough, Chuck Wicks, Love & Theft, Vince Gill, Glorianna, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and some lesser known people
Tuesday, June 8th
*Carrie's Fan Club Party! There will probably be 800-1000 people there, it's free to all Fan Club members, and she performs like 10 songs, does giveaways, Q&As, etc. They also give you free t-shirts and last year she signed EVERYONE's lanyard.
*Grand Ole Opry show! (Not at the Opry House, which is still in repairs since the flood So bummed I won't see the Opry House, and I have really bad seats haha). But it's Carrie, Josh Turner, Steel Magnolia, and Trisha Yearwood
Wednesday, June 9th
*CMT AWARDS!!!!!! We have mosh section tickets, so we will be standing on the floor right by the stage! Sooo many people will be performing or appearing, and Kid Rock is hosting.
Thursday, June 10th
* 1st night of the official "CMA FEST" concerts... Alan Jackson, Danny Gokey, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood
Friday, June 11th
*Concert night #2... Josh Turner, Julianne Hough, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, & a surprise guest which will most likely be Taylor Swift!
Saturday, June 12th
*Concert night #3... Billy Currington, Easton Corbin, Martina McBride, Randy Houser, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band
Sunday, June 13th
*Taylor Swift Day!!!!!!! She is signing/ "hanging out" with fans for 13 hours this day! From like 7am to 8pm or something like that... she's signing/doing pictures, having an accoustic show, and some other stuff. So I will almost definitely get to meet her
*Concert night #4... Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Justin Moore, Kellie Pickler, Trace Adkins
And then, I'm not sure of the days/times yet but we're hopefully going to do the Meet & Greets/Autograph lines for Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, and possibly Julianne Hough and/or Tim McGraw!
I am SOOO excited. But I'm going to get next to NO sleep.. whenever someone's signing, you basically have to camp out on the streets the night before. So we're basically going to leave LP Field where the nightly concerts are, and then go get in line at the convention center, where say, Kellie Pickler, will be signing the next afternoon . We're planning on getting inflatable poor air mattresses and bringing pillows from the hotel to sleep with though hahahah.
