Tennessee - Alabama - Tennessee (part one)

I'm travelling this week - flew from Oakland to Denver - Denver to Nashville - rented a car in Nashville and drove down to Huntsville, AL. Spent the night on Wednesday night in Huntsville, did my "thing" today and then drove back up to Nashville. Took a side trip...

Tonight I went into downtown Nashville and things were NUTS there. CMA Music Fest is going on tonight - Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Julianne Hough, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Darius Rucker. The streets of Nashville were packed. I just wanted to grab some dinner (and a beer) and get back to watch the NBA Finals. I would have liked to see some of the acts, but I had no idea that this was going on until it was a little too late. Plus, it just wouldn't seem right to go without my wife. I also wanted to check out a few places, but the sea of people just made me beeline back to the hotel.

Tomorrow I am heading up to Bowling Green, KY for another work related "deal" and tomorrow night I'm hoping to catch up with an old friend.

I've eaten VERY well - Gibson's BBQ last night (here), G's Country Kitchen (here) for lunch today and Blackstone Brewery (here) for dinner tonight. The folks in the South are so friendly it makes me want to move here...oh, wait...the weather...oh well...

Speaking of weather - there's some nutty weather pattern that's descending on Nashville - they keep cutting into the basketball game saying that we're about to see some serious weather...nice...
I feel at home here in the South and enjoy the good food and kind people.

I miss home, but don't get back until Saturday.

From the road,

Mark Harvey
