10 Things You Won’t Find at CMA Fest ’10

10. Tax auditors. They vacation in Fiji – not Nashville.

9. Llamas. ‘Cause they spit, you know.

          (Though we will have the elusive, rarely-seen-in-the-heat Betty Llama. Stay tuned.)

8. Kissing booth. Sorry, our lips chap… and PDA is icky.

7. Amusement park rides. They can be dangerous. Plus, “Janice, it hurts.”

6. Greased Pig chasing. Poor little piggies running around coated in canola oil…

5. Bottle-nosed dolphins, seeing as they’re not indigenous to the Cumberland River.

4. Botox booth. As a rule, we don’t advocate for injecting our fans with botulism.

3. Celebrity dodgeball. I keep asking for it, though.

2. Baby tossing. This might only be fun if you’re from the Dakotas (like me)…or Arkansas.

1. Kanye West.

(Okay, folks, any other “Top 10” list ideas you want us to tackle? PS- If Janice from the video is reading this, email me! I want you to be my guest at the Fest!)

  14. Holly says:

    I am from South Dakota also and around 2 or 3 years ago I got to meet your sister, brother-in-law and their children. At the time she was working with a friend of mine and we ended up helping them paint and clean up their house after they had smoke damage. She gave me a CMA Awards book after we got to talking about country music and she told me that you worked for CMA. I hope to make it to the CMA Fest again this year.

    • Cory Chapman says:

      Hey Holly- Who did you meet and help? I ask because my sister lives with me in Nashville, and has never been married or had kids. Hmmm… Also, what part of South Dakota are you from? Hope you can make it back for the Fest this year!
