Never Leaving Nashville


You may or may not have seen on Instagram (@coffeewithkylie) I took my first trip to NASHVILLE last weekend!!!! Literally cried the day before leaving because I was so excited. Ahhh emotions…amiright, ladies? I’ll be honest, and you can make fun of me if you want, but I didn’t realize it was basically all bars…and most of what you do is drink. So that was an interesting surprise. But despite the lack of sleep, hydration, and nutrition, I did my best to survive! I swear I’m 24 going on 60… #GrandmaStatus

Aside from the large amount of drinking and bar hopping, we did get to do a few other things…my two favorite being listen to some INCREDIBLE live country music, and eat some of the best southern cooking / BBQ I’ve ever had. Those will be the things I will hold onto most, after the quality time I got to spend with Alex and friends/family.

If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you may have seen this post about The Bobby Bones Show. Let’s just say I’m a super fan of this Nashville-based radio talk show, and truly believe I go way back with this group of people I’ve never met. So there was no way I was going to go to Nashville and not stop by their studio. Call me crazy, but I just had to!

Although they couldn’t bring us into the studio, we did get to meet Morgan (one of the producers) and she was as sweet as can be! She set us up with some free Pimpin’ Joy gear (refer to previous post in regards to Pimpin’ Joy) and is even scheduling a meet and greet for us when the crew is in Tampa! I was beside myself! My dreams have come true!

I’m feeling the need to admit slight embarrassment at the way I geeked out about meeting Morgan. Imagine me shouting responses to her questions instead of speaking in a normal tone, consistent creepy smiling, slightly shaking with excitement. And I didn’t come down from this for a few hours. I was really starting to worry Alex…

Despite the exhaustion and slight overindulgence, I’d call the weekend a success. I am so grateful to be crossing Nashville off the bucket list! I’m sure we’ll go back some time in the future, so please leave some of your favorite Nashville stops below! Help us diversify our next experience!

    You look like you were born to be in Nashville- so easy and comfortable! I’ve been once but quite literally for 24 hours at a wedding. I can’t wait to go back! Looks like you had a fabulous time!

    I would love to go to Nashville. It’s not terribly far from where I live so we could probably make a weekend out of it. I’ll ask my husband!
