June 12, 2012: It's hard to believe it's over. The 2012 CMA Music Festival is history, and among all the stellar acts, Nashville's weather during the past week has to be singled out for a performance unparalleled in the last ten years. Even the rain on Sunday came and went with impeccable timing (arriving in late afternoon and departing before the final concert at LP Field commenced. The well-mannered storm finished off with a grace note by leaving a cool breeze in its wake). So, hat's off to the weather. And many thanks to all our BlueShoe Nashville clients for making this a great year. We will be sending out information on the renewal process for the 2013 Festival in the next few weeks. Sales to the public for BlueShoe's hotel/ticket packages will become available in early August. Check back here for updates and more precise information.

Sunshine is everywhere and there is, according to the weather people, ZERO percent chance of precipitation. So enjoy yourself. You're been waiting a long time for this trip. Life is good, Nashville is smiling—and the guitars are warming up to knock your socks off.
