Tennessee Tennessee
Nashville, TN: Hello cowboy hat, boot wearing tourists. Tons of people, lots of free shows and lots of sun. The heat was overwhelming. 95° and humid. Good weather for wearing dresses!

All day long there were bands playing to packed bars along the strip. We stopped in here to escape the heat a sun because there was a good country cover band playing.

Batman building and the downtown strip.

Printer's Alley, otherwise known as Nude Karoke Alley.

Early afternoon on Friday we stumbled upon Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar in Printer's Alley. We talked with some lady waiting for the bar to open for a fan club party for another singer.

We were next to the stage at the free midnight Eric Church concert at the tiny Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar. It had to be over 100° in there, but the beer was cold! I just happened to look at his website the day before we left to find the surprise concert posting. He played earlier in the evening at the Riverfront venue, we missed out on that, but this was better anyway.

Bass and rhythm guitar.

The band did their own set up and stopped to take some pictures for ultra-fans in the audience. One fan even had Eric Church's autograph tattooed on his arm, jeez.

We caught the end of Jedd Hughes at the free stage on Saturday morning. He had opened for Eric Church in Minneapolis, but this time he had a band. Very fun show in the blazing sun. I thought he was English, but he's Australian. My bad.

Just walking around downtown and oh, hey: Lady Antebellum is playing a free acoustic show!

On Saturday night, after some quality time by the pool, our lovely hosts Josiah & Mel took us out to the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Nashville. It was an amazing beer bar with over 200 beers, most on tap.

Super cool beer bottle light fixtures at the Flying Saucer.

Sunday we were on our flight back home, we had pulled away from the gate, the flight attendants had done the emergency schpeel and the plane was rerouted for weather so we needed to add more fuel. That made us 10 passengers overweight. Anthony and I were the first volunteers off the plane. We got a free ticket, free night stay and meal vouchers. They put us up in the fun, swank Hotel Preston. It was near the Grand Ole Opry so we took a cab over. Everything was closed, so it was kind of lame but it was better than sitting and watching TV.

Magnolia trees everywhere! Also there were really rank smelling trees around too. Ones that smell like moth balls and used latex.
