After a very eventful day one of CMA Fest in Nashville, we all woke up Friday morning with an appetite (granted I had a hot dog the night before) and a little adventure in our bones. We wanted pizza, and decided to venture out to the Farmers' Market to a place called Bella Nashville where the ingredients are fresh.
I had the margarita pizza, but I like things simple. Just a lot of sauce and a little cheese and I'm a happy girl.
Now, after we had a little bit of pizza we all took a nap. The first night was pretty exhausting. For round two, we hit up BB Kings in downtown Nashville where we go every year that we come to CMA Fest. It's an easy atmosphere, good food and usually we are in a hurry. I had wings.
I know. Hot dogs. Pizza. Wings.
I'm the living proof of health right now.
Detox will start Monday.
After our healthy bites, we headed to LP Field. Randy Travis photobombed our picture!
How rude, Randy... how rude.
Now here is an interesting story. Back in 2011 we met this young fella named Nick. We were joking around one night taking pictures and snapped this one. Because I live for social media, I put it on Facebook then. This year, Melissa saw the same guy and knew it was him. Sure enough, it was.
The top picture is 2011, the bottom is 2013.
Sadly, even my hair curls in the exact same spot it did a year ago thanks to the humidity.
We saw a lot of great people Friday night that include...
Randy Travis ... Kip Moore .. Little Big Town ... Hunter Hayes ... Lady Antebellum ... Blake Shelton with special guest by Sheryl Crow and Jason Muraz.
Kip Moore was really, really good and of course Lady A and Mr. Shelton were pretty good as well.
To be honest, Hunter Hayes is kind of like a country Justin Bieber. Cute and little, but not for me.
Oh look at the lights behind us!
Friday night did not end up with a hot dog, instead, it ended up with Taco Bell.
See why there will be a detox on Monday??
On Saturday we headed downtown earlier and I caught the Mountain Man from Duck Dynasty hanging out at CMA Fest.
Just never know who you might see.
We also visited Merchants Restaurant Saturday night. The story of Merchants is pretty cool...
To sum it up, it was once an old hotel that opened right around the 1900's. It had different floors that had different things like a pharmacy, hardware and drug company on the floor. It also was a hotel that housed people for food and lodging for around a quarter a day. There have been some famous country stars to stay there that include, Dolly, Loretta and Hank.
I'd stay there for a quarter if I could meet Dolly.
While we waited on food, Melissa and I had a mini photo shoot. This is just one of like a hundred.
The sun was right in my face but who can complain about a little natural light.
Oh hey Nashville, hey!
Saturday night was just as fun as the first two. That's the thing about CMA fest, even if you aren't a major country fan, you can still have the best of time because you know there will be surprises like...
We also saw ... Florida Georgia Line ... Dierks Bentley ... Kelly Clarkson ... and Keith Urban with surprises by Jason Aldean.
Saturday night ended with a fireworks show, and I love fireworks more than one person should. It's probably why the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. 'Merica, fireworks and fun.
After a fun couple of day ... all you can do ... is cowboy up.
