                    While the concert-touring season has slowed down for the winter, I thought it would be nice to show our listening audiences what we went through in 2010.  I created multiple videos of our experiences with a month by month journey of our adventures.

                    Here’s Part 3 of our 2010 Concert Blast Posts.  This video takes you through our experiences of one of the best music festivals in the world – the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN.

                        For the last 14 years, the CMA Awards have consistently been one of my favorite projects to be a part of. I can only think of one show (the Grammys) that brings together the amount of talent and diversity that this one does. Each year brings it’s own set of interesting performances and results, and this year was no different. So, let’s get right to it!

                                Once again it was time for another CMA Music Festival.  As Mike Arnold mentioned in his book, the CMA Fest is the best music festival Concert Blast has ever covered.

                                  ALAN JACKSON Meet and Greet Photos – Cracker Barrel Restaurant – Mt. Juliet, TN – 11/02/09 (PHOTOS)

                                    On November 2nd, 2009, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store (and restaurant) announced a new line of products, The Alan Jackson Collection, with the country music superstar in person at the Mt. Juliet location.  Concert Blast receives all types of requests to cover events for media exposure.  Most are concerts or CD review coverage.  This is the first time we’ve covered an event at a restaurant.  Normally we wouldn’t cover something like this, but this is for country music superstar Alan Jackson.  Cracker Barrel Old Country Store (and restaurant) introduced a new merchandising progam, The Alan Jackson Collection, which features menswear and womenswear, food items, collectibles, an Alan Jackson Signiture Rocker, and other exclusive items including a CD titled,  ”Songs of Love and Heartache.”

                                    Brian Hasbrook was on hand to cover the event and to take the photos of Alan Jackson’s Collectibles and the Meet and Greet with the 500 plus fans who braved the early cold morning and stood in line for hours to meet Alan Jackson in person at the Cracker Barrel in Mt. Juliet, TN.
