It’s that time again to bring you my article on the Muddy Roots Nashville Boogie and bring it I shall, as I always do every year. This event and the Muddy Roots main event in Cookeville are ones that I have never missed a single year of and I have reported LIVE from them for the entire three and a half years my website has been functioning.
On May 18-21st Nashville will once again fall victim to an all out assault on crappy music when Mr. Jason and his crew of REAL MUSIC crusaders usher in the real deal to the Opryland area. Over 80 performances on 5 stages, over 4 days at 3 venues. Located at the Grand Ole Opry House, Opryland Hotel, & Nashville Palace. Includes a large indoor car show, western fashion show, huge vintage vendor market, pinup contest, a record convention, and a vintage slide show.
It’s becoming so large you cannot possibly soak in the entire event all at once, the only complaints I had were solved last year with the addition of the shuttle bus that transports you form the hotel to the Palace on the hour. I have to carry a computer bag around and it took it’s tole on my legs. Also the first year the side stages had problems with some of us just ordering water or small drinks, that has also been taken care of. I DO STRONGLY implore you eat at participating venues and spend money, but you can only eat so much, so often. PLEASE remember to TIP I DID understand the waitstaff’s side of the deal here, I tired to solve it as politely as I could.
So now, mind you there are TWO PLACES to go for tickets on the entire deal here for a ticket single day or wristband for the weekend click HERE and for tickets to the Opry House finale on Sunday the link is down below at the bottom. I usually post a map of the area in my festival articles and there is a complete list of local hotels down below here is a nice map of the Opryland area for those of you thinking of coming and are unsure of our area here.
