Nashville: Miracle on Broadway

Doug and I were given the chance to attend Kelly Clarkson's Miracle on Broadway, which was a fundraiser for four Nashville non-profits.  Aunt Josie and her good friend, Emily, had a couple extra tickets and offered them to Doug and I.  Once Josie mentioned that there were to be appearances by Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, and Garth Brooks, we were sold!

Pa and Gram were kind enough to watch the kiddos.  So Doug and I took off on Saturday afternoon.  We met up with Josie and Emily for supper at Caney Fork River Valley Grille.  Talk about a cool place!  We were seated right next to the catfish pond, and were able to watch the fish swim while we ate.

After supper, we made our way downtown to Bridgestone Area.  I made Doug stop for a picture before heading into the concert.
There were probably 12 special guests performers throughout the are a few of the pictures I tried to capture...

Any Nashville watchers? Recognize the first guest? That's Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten)!
Meghan Trainor was the second guest on stage
followed by Kix Brooks and his wife
Kacey Musgraves also performed
Martina McBride sang with Kelly and on her own.
Ronnie Dunn also joined Kelly.
One of the highlights for me was when Trisha and Reba joined Kelly to sing "Silent Night"

The other highlight was the end of the show when Garth Brooks appeared on stage with just his guitar to sing "Little Drummer Boy".

We walked downtown after concert, and man there were a lot of people out!

Until next time...
