If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you probably saw a post or two about Southern Fried being in the 2013 CMT Music Awards celebrity gift bags a few weeks ago. The gift bags contained mostly all local Nashville products and were given to all the performers, presenters and hosts for the awards show.
Incase you’re not familiar with the show, it’s the annual Country Music Television’s music video awards, where the winners takes home the coveted buckle trophy. This year the show was hosted by Jason Aldean and Kristen Bell, and had multiple awesome performances by the biggest names in country music including Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker and many more.
I was lucky enough to snag 2 tickets to the show and let me tell ya it was fantastic! I enjoyed the entire show, but must say there were 2 moments that were quite rememberable; the opening act collaboration of Jason Aldean and Lenny Kravitz performing “American Woman”
and the Nashville skyline fireworks during Aldean’s outside performance of “Night Train.”
CMT was too kind and had their resident host, Katie Cook put a video together of all the products included in the gift bags.
Alison Bonaguro wrote a CMT blog post about the products as well. I must say as an avid country music fan it was such a delight to have my products given to some of my favorite artists and I was even more thrilled to be included amongst some of Nashville’s best businesses!
That’s it for now. Y’all have a great week and check back soon, I’m going to start a new blog series that’ll be shedding some light on country music’s best new artists and I’ll be sharing some of my personal playlist favorites.
