Bright & Early: CMApocalypse Now Edition

June 3, 2009 9:45 AM 3 comments

Good morning, Nashville. CMApocalypse is really sneaking up on us this year, and we’d almost forgotten about it until we saw the news this morning that more than 40,000 rabid country music fans are expected to descend upon our fair city for the festival next weekend and 30,000 of them are expected to be filling up the hotels downtown. How fast can we plan a weekend getaway, right? Okay, we kid; Nashville wouldn’t be Nashville without the tourists, and heck, we welcome any excuse to bust out the CMApocalypse bingo (feel free to make your own and send them our way!) Either way, keep an ear to Nashvillest over the next couple of days and we’ll do our best to get you through it.

A year ago on Nashvillest: We battened down the hatches for the start of the CMA fest invasion, scratched our heads at the thought of An Inconvenient Truth: The Opera, and won some awards with our urinals.

    I've seen cars booted several times in the parking lot right outside of Cafe Coco. However, they weren't responsible for the bootings, the owner of that lot was.

    Wow, diss country music fans to make yourself look cool! How original. I only heard that sort of snobbery since 1968.

    Keep it up and see if you have any more tourist coming to town to fund the convention center.

    Nashville hippies need to stay in East Nashville and leave the rest of the respectable city alone. Even better, most of East Nashville needs to move back to LA or New York or wherever they came from.
