To all the fans who had intended to stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort during your time in Nashville for the 2010 CMA Music Festival, you know by now that the hotel has been ravaged by the recent flooding and will, unfortunately, NOT be operational next month. We wish our friends at Gaylord Opryland the very best as they begin their cleanup efforts.
Given the hardship Opryland faces, our partners and friends at VisitMusicCity.com are helping accommodate all the fans traveling in for this year’s Festival. They’re making it easier for each of you to find alternate hotel accommodations in June, using the link below for some TERRIFIC hotel options. As more resources and information become available, we’ll continue to keep you posted.
Also, we just wanted you to know that we announced today that 100% of 2010 CMA Music Festival proceeds will go to charity – with 50% being directed to flood relief for middle Tennessee and the remaining 50% honoring our commitment to fund music education through CMA’s Keep the Music Playing program. We ALWAYS value the amazing fans and tremendous artists who make CMA Music Festival happen each year, and it’s thanks to each of you that the 2010 event will prosper and will ultimately help rebuild and revitalize Nashville — our city and our home that we hold so dear. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for attending this year’s Festival. It’s going to be a special celebration, to say the least.
