I purchased the plane tickets for our Nashville trip yesterday. We're going to visit Anthony's best friend, Josiah and his wife Mel, who recently moved there to make it in the music business. I used up pretty much all of my frequent flier miles to buy 2 round trip tickets. I'm glad I booked the trip before the Delta-NWA merger happened. Now, lets just hope that they honor our tickets if they merge before we leave.
We'll be there June 5-8, which just happens to be the same dates as CMT's Fan Fair. Miranda Lambert is playing Friday night and I'm hoping maybe Lori McKenna will play that day too and the concert gods smile on me and we get tickets. Right now it looks like we can only get 4-day passes, lame.
If we can't see them, I'm confident there will be plenty of fun, free live music in the local bars.
It should be a nice and warm long weekend in Tennessee to celebrate the end of the legislative session. I plan to wear a lot of sun dresses, see the sites, shop and hear lots of good bands.
