CMA Fest 2011 – A first for us in Nashville

Well, CMA Fest 2011 is in the history books now, and it will go down as a huge one for Puckett’s. Thank you so much to the fans who joined us at all of our locations.  It is really special to us at the downtown Nashville Puckett’s. It was such a thrill to serve new and old guests alike in this one and only festival. We had guests who only ate at Puckett’s the entire time they were in Nashville. We had people visit us from literally all over the world. Most of them said they wanted to know what “real Southern food” tasted like. We believe most all of them were happy, and we were surely proud.

CMA fest is amazing, really. There is no where else in the world, or any other genre of music that is celebrated like this one. I heard Blake Shelton say on television today that it is like a family reunion of sorts. That is a great way to describe this CMA party for sure. We felt that way with guests who’ve visited Puckett’s in Franklin or Leiper’s Fork before, and wanted now to see what the Nashville restaurant was like. It was good to see old and new faces alike.

As always, it is so rewarding to serve our customers.  Many thanks to our CMA participants:  Coldwater Jane, Mallory Hope, Heather Morgan, Trent Willmon and his entire Ropin’ Lineup, Jesse Lee, Love and Theft, the Carter Twins, Johnny Bulford, Chris Roberts and of course The Sweethearts of the Rodeo.

Our buddy, Trent Willmon’s 6th Annual Ropin’ Pen Party and Celebrity Hi Stakes Team Roping was a great success bringing cowboys, cowgirls and even a Titan ropin’ and putting on a great show at Puckett’s! We met and enjoyed Ashton Shepherd on Saturday as she performed at Puckett’s. She invited some of her fans to Puckett’s, and it was a good time indeed.

We hope and pray all of our CMA visitors have a safe trip home, and we look forward to next year.

Thanks Y'all!
