CMA Music Fest. Something for Everyone in Nashville

For 6 years now we've been making the pilgrimage to Nashville each June to partake in the massive CMA Music Fest celebrating country music and raising money for the Nashville School District's Music Program.  All the performers come with their bands and perform free on one of the many stages during the day throughout downtown Nashville or on the big stage at one of the 4 nightly concerts at LP Field.  All proceeds go to the Nashville regional school district to support music education (primarily the purchase of instruments).  All types of people from 50 states (and this year 27 countries) come to enjoy the madness.  And there is something for everyone: bluegrass pickers on small stages to Carrie Underwood at the massive LP Field, from rockabilly bands to country rocker Jason Aldean.  Here are a few photos to give you a taste of the Fest, you can see the complete set of my photos on my Flickr is the link:
