CMA Fest 2009

We just got our travel package in the mail for "CMA" Fest. Nashville here we come!
My little girl turns 16 this year and since she is so "into" country music- guitars (she plays 12 string acoustic) and Nashville I am taking her to the Festival! She is already planning- Ice Cream at Mike's on Broadway- Lunch at the "Wild Horse Saloon" and CONCERTS- CONCERTS- CONCERTS!!
She is hoping Toby Keith, The Carter Twins, Billy Currington and Chris Young will be there. The big announcement of who will be appearing isn't until April 1st (I hope that date isn't a bad omen).
I just can't believe my little girl is going to be 16!!!
AND here is a great reason to want to see more TOBY!!!

September 13th 2008.
Julie and I went to "The Blossom Center" in Ohio to see Toby Keith's "Biggest Baddest Tour". It was quite a show. Charter's Cord opened the concert followed by Mica Roberts, and Trailer Choir made way for Montgomery Gentry who put of a fantastic show and TOBY Keith capped it all off with a couple hours of songs and crazy antics- typical Toby.
Julie got to spent the concert at the stage (we had 10th row middle section seats) Julie said "He's amazing". Actually I think he is a little crazy and really knows how to work the crowd (which consisted of a lot of funny drunks. I made quite a few layouts from the fun pictures we took at the concert.

Oh that sounds like so much fun! You are a wonderful mother to do something so fun for your daughter, something that she loves! She is going to love you for it!

I have never been to Nashville but hoping to get there one day. They say Tootsies is one place not to miss, that is where many of the artists started out. Also KEEP YOUR CAMERAS READY because they say you never know who you might see on the streets or anywhere around there. Have fun and hope you have a Wonderful birthday and get to see Toby Keith, he is AWESOME, I am one of his Warriors and belong to his fan club. He is so much fun in his sconcerts. Take Care.
