In June 2016, we took a trip to Nashville for CMA Fest. CMA Fest is a multi-day country music festival with several stages and a fan expo. As big country music fans, it was a bucket list item for us. Of course, visiting the Grand Ole Opry was also a bucket list item, so we made sure we had time to see a show.
We booked the latest showing of the Opry, but arrived a couple of hours early so we could take advantage of some outdoor performances and get better parking.
Both Chris Janson and Lindsay Ell performed outside on a small stage for about 15 minutes each. Because I only had my “concert” camera instead of my DSLR, I only got a few photos. None of my Lindsay Ell photos turned out well due to lighting and the crowd.
Inside the Opry
On the marquee at the Grand Ole Opry that night were Chris Janson, Lindsay Ell, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Charles Esten, and Jeannie Seely. There were a couple of other artists I didn’t know.
