Bright & Early: CMApocalypse Now Edition

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.
