The Country Music Marathon is one of them. This event takes place in April. There are about 25,000 runners that come out for it and its true "country music theme" rings true. It is a marathon and a half marathon.
Check out the CMA Music Festival. This event takes place each year in June. It is a four day event that often brings in the best in country music stars. You will find a variety of artists present and they are usually available for fan interaction including autograph signing. There are many activities that take place for country music fans.
The Country Music Association Awards happen in the city each year as well. These are usually in November. They often happen at the Bridgestone Arena. This is a nationally televised event and tickets to get it are hard to come by (though if you can get them, they are worth it!)
Have you attended any of these events Nashville music lovers? Which was your favorite and do you have plans for a Nashville vacation?
