Nashville Weekend “It” List: CMApocalypse Edition

The weekend is here in Nashville and we've got the picks for those who chose not to attend CMA Music Festival or Bonnaroo. Check it out.

So you didn’t make it to Bonnaroo either, huh?  Not to fear because there is some surprisingly good stuff going on in town.  And in air conditioned venues!  Woohoo!

Obviously the CMA festival is going on.  It’s not really my thing, but there is always good people watching this time of year.
