Free Chevy Stage at CMA Music Festival
June 4, 2008.
We normally look for 1/2 price PPA Campgrounds COE Campgrounds or National Park Campgrounds. But in Nashville, over the Memorial Day weekend Two Rivers Campground is our choice.
After the parade action started on the Free Chevy Stage and continued until 8pm. Hours and hours of free music was presented on the Chevy Stage every day of the CMA Music Fest. After the parade Keith Anderson, Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan, James Otto, Joe Nichols, Rissi Palmer, Phil Stacey and Chris Young performed. How is that for a free concert!
This is what the Free Chevy Stage looked like on Wednesday afternoon.

There is nothing like spending time with my best friend -- it sure makes life worth living. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.
That is the Free Chevy Stage at CMA 2008 in the background.
We headed home early tonight, as in 8pm in the hopes of getting enough rest tonight so that we can make it through the entire day/night tomorrow. Performers will begin their concerts in the morning at 10am and continue on multiple stages until midnight tomorrow night. At any one time there are probably in excess of 5-Country Stars performing on various stages. You have to pick and choose which ones you want to hear and move to that venue. They are all good, you just have to decide which one you really want to see.
Having fun at CMA isn't the only thing to do in Nashville.
One day we went for an afternoon cruise on the General Jackson Showboat that boards jusd down the road from where we are staying at Two Rivers Campground.
