For the next few days, HerKentucky is going country with a few Nashville-themed posts. Now, I know Nashville is technically in Rocky Top. But, I've got to say that, when I lived in NashVegas, I felt perfectly at home. I'd even go so far to say that I saw almost as much UK Blue on an everyday basis in Nashville as I saw UT Orange or Vanderbilt Black and Gold. (Well, almost...)
Anyway, I jump on every opportunity I can find to travel down I-65 for a day or two, between the fact that I have some dear friends there, I'm addicted to hot chicken and Parnassus Books, and, well, you get the idea... If you find yourself in the same boat of constantly looking for a trip to Nashville (or if you're one of the legions of Kentuckians I seem to remember running across in the Nashville Metro area...), then Kentucky Tourism has a fun event for you this week!
This Thursday, June 4 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., a really cool group of Kentuckians will gather in Nashville's awesome 12 South Neighborhood for an evening of bourbon, music, and fun. The event will be hosted at the awesomely hip boutique Imogene + Willie (which is owned by Henderson, KY natives!) and will feature music from The Watson Twins and Ben Sollee and plenty of Bulleit Bourbon. Entrance and drinks are free and food will be available for purchase.
What an awesome celebration of the Bluegrass State in the Music City!
