So just returned from an 11 day trip in Memphis and New Orleans. Would have added Nashville but not enough holidays. So I'm now planning Nashville for next year and am in the early stages. Can I ask a couple of preliminary questions before the real research starts.
When is THE CMA 2019? I've had a look online and there is mention of 2 different months - June and August- so I'm confused.
If we came then would are there options for non- ticketed events (e.g. will there be street and bar music or is everything ticketed)
If we didnt come for CMA are there other "good" times to come for music events.
I can't access the most asked questions on phone so would I be right in saying Downtown is best for lodgings for 1st time visitor (best area for walkable attractions)?any part of Downtown to be avoided (We are fairly streetwise and know the usual rules re safety and not overly cautious.
Our hotels in Memphis and NOLA were Comfort Inn and Staybridge Suites i.e clean, friendly, not huge, decent price, good location - can you recommend similar hotels in Nashville (We won't be driving).
Many thanks in advance.
