Americana Music Awards

In exactly two weeks from today, I'll be on a plane headed to Nashville to see a great friend. I've never been and I am super excited. I've never had a real southern experience. In fact, I am now eating meat after three years of being a vegetarian, just so I can get the BBQ experience. Yup, I am ready for a good time!

In addition to touring plantations, hitting up the bar scene, visiting Galtinburg, tailgating at a UT game, and taking a haunted tour of Nashville, I just changed my flight so I could attend the Americana Music Awards! I may not know a lot about the artists, but we get to sit among the celebs (real seats, not filler seats thanks to my friend's awesome job!) and enjoy a night at the Ryman Auditorium, the original location of the Grand Ole Opry. Plus it gives me an excuse to go buy a new dress and heels ;)

So in spirit of my upcoming country music experience, here's a little inspiration, Pinterest style.

Has anyone else ever been to Nashville? Or the Ryman Auditorian?! Do tell :)

You are going to love the South! Nashville is a great place to experience it for the first time. Second only to Savannah! {I may be just a little biased on that one} ;) I cannot wait to hear about your experience! Have fun!

Wow! I am SO jealous. It's one of the places in the US (along with Memphis/Graceland) that I so want to visit.

Shutterbug said...

Ok, the haunted Nashville tour sounds amazing! But then again any haunted tour always sounds like a good time to me! I tried to go on the "Jack The Ripper" tour in London, but we couldn't fit it in :(

The Americana Music Awards sound like they will be brilliant fun! What does your friend do as a job?

And I love that picture from "Walk The Line". Gah, that movie is soooo brilliant! One of my favorites!

Christina said...

Awesome!!! Your trip is going to be amazing. I think you'll have so much fun at the awards show, whether you know the music or not. I'm jealous!

Miranda said...

Johnny Cash is one of my all time faves and I love Walk the Line! good pins!

Couture Carrie said...

Allison said...

Take so many pictures and have the most amazing time, my friend! I LOVE Johnny Cash so much, and am DYING to visit Nashville some day (even though I'm not a country music fan, minus Johnny!). I almost went to Vanderbilt for college - I kind of wish I did so I could have gotten that Southern experience!
Instagram the hell out of Nashville for me, girl! xox

Ashley said...

Holly said...

Meg {henninglove} said...

what made you decide to start eating meat? did you have any side effects? dont worry i can handle tmi, one of my friends has been a lifelong vegetarian and she sometimes wonder how things would be if she started introducing meat into her diet

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Happy Wednesday!!! :D
Love your pins!

Ashley said...

Oh my gosh, I am DYING to go to Nashville!!! Such a bucket-lister of mine. I'm also in love with all things Johnny and June (Halloween costume potential!) and love these pins!

Good thing I gave you a blog award today- I'm loving your blog even more :)

Marz said...

I'm always excited about people traveling to the south since I'm a Texas girl :) I have never been to Nashville though and I'm so jealous of you!! And how exciting that you are getting a true taste (a little pun there since you'll be indulging in meat again! I love BBQ so much so to me you're making such a wise choice) of the south with the awards show! :) I'm such a huge fan of Johnny Cash - I'm loving the pins!

Jess said...

Jealous!! Sounds like a great trip you have planned!

You already know I'm way jealous of your upcoming trip to Nashville. Add a music award experience at the Ryman Auditorian and color me green with envy...lol. I know you're going to have a blast and I'm glad you have lots of fun things planned for your time there. I expect a full recap :)
