CMA Festival

  • Missed the CMA Festival?

    During the CMA Festival, you wish you knew the closest beach to Nashville?!

    There is a lot to see and do in Nashville, TN - even if you've missed the CMA Festival. I do everything to avoid loudness and crowds. The feeling in downtown Nashville at the CMA festival is like I imagine that of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Though it was beautiful out, it was hot and loud with a lot of beer drinking in the streets. Where's the beach?

    My recent trip happened to be during the CMA festival, but we found some gems a little bit away from downtown.  Even though there were at least seven free stages with music and many more paid concerts to attend, I wandered with a friend into a few new spots. I have visited most of the standards: Top Ten Things to do in Nashville

  • CMA Festival Closing in!

    Will Violettes Be at the CMA Festival this Year?!

    For all practical purposes, Violettes will be at the CMA festival! As an engineering student, one of the first jokes we were told (in the male dominated world) goes -  "What is the difference between a mathematician and an engineer? " To make the joke a little shorter - If there is a beautiful lady at the end of the hall, and you are told the rules are to run half way to her when the whistle is blown then stop, then run half way to her again and stop, and again... So the whistle blows and the engineer starts running, but the mathematician just stands still. When the mathematician is asked why, he laughs and says well everyone knows if you are only allowed to keep running half way there, you'll never reach her. And so the engineer is asked why he is running, and he says, for all practical purposes, you will get close enough.

    Thanks to Violettes Songwriting Contestant winner, Hanah Breck, we will be vending at the Country Fan Jam. This is a brand new event in Nashville that takes place at the fair grounds at the same time as the CMA Festival. There will be affordable concerts with rising music stars each day. So make sure to select your festival fashion statement from Violettes' hand painted guitars and leather fiddles ahead of the crowd. The level of stars that will appear include past NBC The Voice Stars, Wisewater, Wade Hayes, Ray Scott, Buddy Jewell, Tonya Watts...

    Speaking of which, check out the fabulous Sarah Potenza with her Violettes Guitar Purse!
