CMA Music Festival started in 1972, named Fan Fair, as away for fans of Country Music to meet their favorite singers, songwriters and the stars of Music City. It has increased from 5,000 fans attending to last years record breaking 80,000 attending the festival.

Over the years the biggest issue for folks has been the heat and humidity of Nashville TN. A few tips to keep cool and hydrated

  • Remember to wear light colored clothing
  • Wear Sunscreen
  • Keep a wet washcloth in a Ziploc bag in your purse or bag 
  • Stay in the cool as much as possible
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Avoid a lot of sugary drinks and this includes energy drinks
  • If you drink alcoholic beverages make sure you continue to also drink plenty of water.

These are only suggestions and should not by any circumstance replace qualified medical advice. If you feel fatigued, sick, headache or light headed seek immediate medical attention at one of the first aid stations during CMA Fest.

When you are not at one of the many stages watching performances or waiting inline to get an autograph you can visit Photo Captures by Jeffery to purchase prints.

You can order photographic art prints that you can have framed or unframed and printed on either metal, canvas, acrylic, fotoflots, stand outs or fine art prints. I also offer you a nice assortment of gift products from calendars to posters. They will be a nice way to remember your time in Music City and the print(s) or products will be delivered to your door so you won't have to worry about taking them on a plane or having to pack them safely in your vehicle.

Either come a few days early or stay a few days later after the festival to enjoy more of what Nashville Middle Tennessee has to offer than the downtown Honky Tonks.

We have a wonderful world class zoo Nashville Zoo that would be great fun for young and old.

If you are a fan of the show Antique Archaeology American Pickers they have a small fan/tourist store located in the historical old Marathon Automobile car factory building. Now don't forget to explore the other shops located within the historically building after you visit their shop. Their store is small so if it is peek time it might be a bit crowded.

For those that want to get into nature and are up for a nice nature hike/walk a must visit is Radnor Lake State Park as it has some wonderful trails through the forest and along the human made lake. If you go mid-morning or later expect to fine a line of cars waiting to get a parking spot and also the later you wait the less likely you are to experience some of the wildlife that call Radnor Lake home. The Walter Criley Visitor Center is only accessible by vehicle from Granny White Pike which is the bigger parking lot but both parking areas have restrooms.

If you are wanting to spend the day by the water or on the water go to Percy Priest Lake that is on I-40 East past the airport. It might be too late but you can check with the Elm Hill Marina or Nashville Boat Rentals to see about renting a boat for a few hours or all day. I don't have any connections nor personal knowledge of either business. You can also enjoy some nice swimming in pools or the lake at Nashville Shores.

If you are wanting to pay homage and your respects to the late Country Music stars you can visit their grave sites. I am sure there are many buried in other cemeteries but I am going to list three Woodlawn Memorial Park, Spring Hill Cemetery and the historic Mount Olivet Cemetery.

Along with Country Music, Nashville has a wonderful arts community in our ever growing and expanding city. The Frist Art Museum has nice assortment of different exhibits running out thru the year. Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art is a 55-acre botanical garden and historic estate in Nashville, featuring art galleries. The Parthenon in Centennial Park has a gallery along with a large scale replica of Athena Parthenos inside for visitors to enjoy. I know a lot of folks are like me and consider the automobile to be a work of art so a must visit is the Lane Motor Museum it has the largest European collection of cars and motorcycles in the United States.

 

That was just a handful of places to visit and things to do while here in Music City Nashville TN. You can find lot more of my photography on, Photo Captures by Jeffery, that covers several areas here in Nashville and Middle TN. While you are here in town remember to have fun, be safe, enjoy our city and treat our town as if it were your own home.

Uncle Pete stands up after dinner looks around the table and announces, "It is time to unplug." We all put down and turn off our phones and tablets and clear the table. Pete has three new Photo Captures by Jeffery puzzles for us to work. For the next couple of hours the room is filled with laughter and shouts of "I have that piece." Pete the Puzzle Man, is what we all call him, the man who can get us all to stop to collectively accept the challenge of connecting pieces together to make a great family memory.

Pete will always ask, "How do you work a puzzle?" Most of the veteran puzzlers sit quietly waiting for a response from one of the uninitiated. Invariably, there will always be one that will say something like, "one piece at a time." Pete will look around the room at the others seeing their reaction to the answer and then looks back at the brave soul who confidently answered the question. He will lean in and ask the question again but before the answer can be repeated Pete will gently say, "Together".

Cheer Magic Shirt

A few months ago a good friend posted on Facebook about her daughters cheerleading. Her daughters cheer squad was looking for sponsors with monies donated for t-shirts. Part of the sponsorship was that donors would have their name/business listed on the back of the shirts.

"At Cheer Magic we apply our years of experience to teach any child how to learn the SPORT of cheerleading, from competition to tumbling classes we do it!"

 

Sharing a photo of the shirt front and back. Will check with my friend to see if there is a list of the sponsors and links to the businesses.
