Nashville Diaries: 2012 CMA Fest conclusion and picture galleries!


Hello Country music fans,

Here at the Swift Agency, one guy that is already looking forward to the next CMA Music Festival, well… we’re going to start saving. There will be a lot to take in, and a lot to do – but first we need to save our pennies to make sure we’re capable of going. I would like to send a shoutout to so many people out there that I met, some of them fans, some of them country stars and more than a few I would count as friends.


All throughout the festival, you could feel how some stars were still missing. I was glad to see Eric Church, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley, The Band Perry, etc. In the rare category of stars and friends I was so glad to see the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope once more. Eric Church played Springsteen and it turned into a memory Рdraw your own parallels to Tim McGraw here. I did get to see Amos Heller play and met with The Agency again.

The Fan Fair Hall debuted its new system by which a lot of people found that depending on luck is not necessarily all good or all bad but the old system at least rewarded the efforts of a few, even if such efforts implied sleeping on the sidewalk and bolting across the convention center towards the booth of your choice. Now at least the hopeful lines have survived so some fans were still able to get to meet their favorite artist.

I missed the Sparkly Dressed. I could’ve used some Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Reba… but there’s always next year. Speaking about the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar, I couldn’t help but compile all the pictures that reminded me of her into a section called Shades of Taylor, as well as pictures from the Fan Fair Hall¬†and the nightly concerts at LP Field on CMA Fest. So, here are the new sections of the Gallery:

I leave you with what is for me, the saddest sight: the Sparkly Guitar… without the Blonde. It holds a promise though. She will be back.
