CMA Fest 2012 -

Anthony is in the Zac Brown Band fan club. Every year they do a fan club party before CMA Fest for a couple hundred of their luckiest fans. Anthony was able to get us tickets this year. (we weren't able to get em last year) So off we went!

The fellas always play a few tunes and mingle a bit with everybody. We chatted with him for a spell. 
Chef Rusty, Zac's  good buddy always cooks up a messasumthin and it was really good, as usual. My favorite thing was this thing - - 
they called it chocolate peanut butter biscuit pudding. YUMMMM 

On to the BIG SHOW...  
it was P E R F E C T weather... for sittin outside enjoyin some country tunes 
I'll hit the highlights for ya... 

Miranda Lambert rocked out. 
I have to admit...I wasn't so much a fan of hers before this, but she really sounded good and she totally jams with that guitar slung around her neck

As usual, the place went nuts when Jason Aldean took the stage. He played last year on the night we went. He's cool, just not my fave.

Umm... Lady Antebellum came out and sung their heads off, do ya hear me?

And of course these fellas were why we went - Zac Brown Band yeeeeeaaaaaaah
 They played - -  
Keep Me In Mind one of my faves
The Devil Went Down to Georgia I always think that guitar is gonna go to smokin when Zac plays it the way he does on this song
The Wind a new one from their CD that comes out next month
Ain't In No Hurry another one of my faves
Uncaged from their new CD 
America the Beautiful into Chicken Fried can't go wrong with this pairing either! 

Brad Paisley closed the show. I'm not a fan of his. He seems like a cool dude. I just don't dig his music that much, although he's great on guitar.

On the way home, we just had to swing through for some Castle sliders. These and Krystals are a late night gotta get em.

Thanks for the memories Nashville ~
