Yes, I realize that doesn’t sound like it’s wine related; and it’s not, except we had some really good wine on the way there and the way home. We visited Forest Edge Winery, in southern Bullitt County. An excellent start and end to a great weekend visiting Nashville, Tennessee.
While in Nashville, we did a little bar hopping on Broadway and visited the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum. Our stops at Tootsie’s and Old Red were both enjoyable; and along with the regular exhibits that make the museum a must see, there were special exhibits on the Outlaws, Emmylou Harris, and Little Big Town.
But the highlight of our visit was the concert honoring Willie Nelson. Over twenty well-known entertainers were there to pay tribute to Willie, with performances by greats, such as: Kris Kristofferson, Chris Stapleton, Emmylou Harris, George Strait, Vince Gill, Norah Jones, Lyle Lovett, Dave Matthews, Jimmy Buffett, Willie’s sons Lukas and Micah, Jamey Johnson and many more. Several were joined on the stage by Willie himself. The finale was the entire ensemble on stage to perform On the Road Again, but that wasn’t all. The all-star line up followed that up by Will the Circle be Unbroken, I’ll Fly Away, and Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die. It was an amazing concert!
For those wine lovers who are country music fans, like we are, keep an eye out. The show was taped and will be shown on A & E sometime this year. I can’t wait to see it again!
