Been taking one "big" vacation a year since D-Day... a little bit of splurging on myself.

This year was Nashville for CMA Fest - biggest country music fest of the year. I'm wrapping up my week here - heading home tomorrow.

I LOVE THIS CITY. I want to move here. Maybe it's time for a real NB?

DO IT! And, I can live vicariously through you!

I ran my 1st marathon in Nashville on April 30th, 2011 (on what would have been my 6 year wedding anniversary after my divorce).. part of my NB! It was the Country Music Marathon!!! My favorite marathon by far!

Thought you were going to talk about the series... I would move there just for the off chance of running into the hot mess known as Deacon.


They have deep fried mac and cheese. Just saying....

Well, you'd be more than welcome to come on! I am only a short drive away, and as I am from Atlanta, it is nice to get to a city every once in a while, but it's even nicer cause it isn't as huge as Atlanta....

I'm with Shelly !

Can I come to visit ? Warning it might be a long visit.

It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

I love that place...

I am not a marriage counselor. I chose "MC Jack" because I like the Music City. I did know what MC stood for on this site. Duh.

Love it! Love it!

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned

I love Nashville too. So much to do outside of music too. Hit Arrington Vineyards if you're still there. Kix Brooks owns it. Pack a picnic lunch/dinner and get your wine there. They have music there on the weekends too. The Frist Museum is pretty cool for a small art museum. Right next door is the historic Union Station hotel. Great architecture and amazing history. The zoo is nice. Historic Franklin, TN. Loveless Cafe. And on and on . . .

We were just in Nashville the weekend before last...also had a great time. What a cool city.

Went to the brand new Johnny Cash Museum...fascinating. Had a chat with a couple from Australia that do a Johnny and June show down under.

Really enjoyed the Ryman and the CM Hall of Fame. The highlight was probably The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's estate.

Food and drink was great too.

Good luck if this turns out to be a NB!

I live a couple hours away in Paducah, Kentucky.

Nashville is a wonderful town and just like Shelly I have run in that half-marathon in 2011 and 2008.

The 2011 race was really hot! I remember side-stepping and running around many stopped runners.

My girlfriend was there Saturday night and had a blast. There are lots of bars and restaurants there and she loves the music.

Opryland Hotel is awesome...
