A few of my favorite moments include:
- Performing at Manuel's Couture. You probably know him best as the American fashion designer behind dressing stars like Elvis, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, etc. We (Michael Boris and Bill DiLuigi) had a great time performing and he is such a sweet man, I just had to kiss him on the cheek! :)
- Interview with Boots the Podcast- Had a fun interview with John Thompson for a hip and happening new podcast about music, the music industry and some other personal stories right before my CMR Nashville showcase at the Bridgestone Glass Tower. Check it out here!
- Fan Meet and Greet at the Digital Rodeo Booth- I met a lot of great new friends at the Digital Rodeo booth during a meet and greet! Some of the folks that had seen my show the day before at Bridgestone stopped by to again say hello which was a real treat for me!
I loved meeting everyone and hearing where people had traveled from to attend the event. Australia, Canada, and just about every state was represented! One of my favorite new friends was Mike, who has been coming to the CMAs for 34 years and has more than 7,000 signed autographs from artists that he has organized into binders. Now that is some serious fan dedication to country music right there!
I had a great week and can't wait to find out what next year at the CMA Music Fest brings!
