Nashville Bound

I can hardly stand it I am so excited to tell you my weekend plans.

I am headed South for the weekend to hang out with this girl!

Ok, hang out may be a stretch, but it IS going to be a Carrie Underwood filled weekend, and I can’t wait!

This whole weekend idea sprung about months ago when I got a press release from The Country Music Hall of Fame (They are one of our advertisers at work) announcing the Carrie Underwood Blown Away exhibit opening in June!

WHAT? I said to myself. I will go.

Here is a little info about the exhibit

Well, being the smart gal that I am, I thought the only logical way to do this weekend up right is to plan the trip on a weekend when she was also performing at the Grand Ole Opry! That would be this weekend!! So after I spend the day at the Blown Away exhibit, I get to go see her perform in one of the smallest venues I will ever see her in, so cool!


While I don’t think I will get another pic like this, ever… a girl can dream right??

Anyways, she has a lot of scheduled appearances coming up in the next week to help promote her new concert DVD, The Blown Away Tour: Live. Here are the upcoming dates you will want to set your DVR:

Good Morning America, Monday, 8.12 (co-hosting)

CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock , Monday, 8.12

Live! With Kelly and Michael, Tuesday, 8.13

Her tour DVD also comes out the 13th, and you can catch a preview below. I am convinced I am going to be in one of the shots from when I was 3rd row at her concert last September, LOL.

Wait you didn’t see me? Me either.

I am so pumped for this weekend, I will be sure to take lots of pics when I can for you all! Say your prayers for a Carrie up close and personal sighting. 😉


  1. The way you are with Carrie is how I am with Lady Gaga. Love it!

    Have a blast girl. Nashville is so fun. xo

  2. Samantha says:

    Eeeek! Nashville is my most favorite city ever! Last time I was there I got to see Carrie at the Opry too. It's awesome, but those three songs go by FAST! Have so much fun!!!

  3. Ashley says:

    How fun! Nashville is one of my favorite cities ever! I saw Carrie at the Opry in 2009, and it was amazing. There's nothing like watching your favorite perform at such a legendary place. Can't wait to read all about your trip!

    Aaaahhhh! I'm so jealous! We went to the Opry a few months ago to see Josh Turner and it was the best. I feel like no matter where you sit you'll be able to see her in all her glory!

    ps. We live outside of Nashville and I SO wish you could swing by and do my hair! 😉

  8. So exciting!! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  9. Ah I am so jealous! Have fun! 🙂

  10. Kelly says:

    That picture with Carrie is the reason that I started reading your blog in the first place. (I think I googled Carrie and your blog came up.) I was convinced that you were her sister or cousin, so I kept reading and then I got hooked. hahah! Have fun <3

  11. So jealous!!! ahhh a)I am dying to go back to Nashville… I'm so obsessed with that city. So much in fact that I am willing to move to Atlanta to be closer and b)Seeing Carrie at the Opry would be a dream! Have so much fun!!!

  12. TheDailyRaz says:

  18. Lauren says:

  19. Soooo insanely jealous! I've never been to Nashville and I heart Carrie just like everyone else.

    The only thing that could make that weekend any better is if you got to shake it with Luke Bryan on top of a bar 🙂
