Meet & Greet with Alan Jackson.........

Star struck.........Ada & Alan Jackson

A superfan, Ada has always wanted to meet her Country Music idol, Alan Jackson. While her sister would be considered an AJ stalker, Ada thought, maybe someday she would have an opportunity if she just passed through Nashville enough times. We’ll, this trip through Nashville, TN on her way to Arizona, an opportunity, or fate, made it all possible. Of course, snooping around town and making friends with the locals helped. (You just have to hide that Boston accent, especially after the Patriots shellaced the Titans a few weeks ago 59 to zip..)

Ada and all the other country music fans coming to Nashville during CMA Week had the opportunity to meet Alan Jackson at a new attraction – a temporary Cracker Barrel Old Country Store retail shop, right in the middle of downtown, at lst & Broadway. A one-week-only attraction; it opened November 7th and continued til the 11th. It featured the newly released Alan Jackson Collection. (A new album and a whole host of products from calendars to coasters.) The highlight of the week for Ada & Don was the in-store appearance by superstar Alan Jackson on Tuesday, November 10th, where purchases could be autographed and a photo taken with “the Man” himself. Who cared that we had to get up at 5am to get one of the 300 tickets available for the Meet & Greet……… For sure, sleeping is so overrated!

Terri & Ali, yes we have arrived and no I didn't get your text as I don't have texting on my cell phone. (Got tired of getting messages from people I don't know, so I had the feature taken off.)
And yes, I was on cloud 9 for a few days.......
