CMA Festival

The stars are big in Texas, but the stars that were performing at the CMA Fest in Nashville, TN were even bigger! Texas on Tour made its way to Music City for the biggest Country Music Festival in the world. When the sun set, the stars came out and performed to sold out crowds every night. This year CMA Festival set a record for the most people in attendance ever and 100% of the proceeds from the festival are always donated to worthy causes. This year 50% went to saving music in our schools program, and the other 50% went to flood relief in Nashville. Both very good causes and we were glad that Texas On Tour was a part of this great event.

Not only was the CMA Festival packed, but it was packed with people from all over the country as well as all over the world. They all wanted to know more about what Texas has to offer, which goes to show you that Texas has international appeal. When folks weren’t enjoying one of our many experiences, they were participating in one of our contests. The Texas on Tour team and I thoroughly enjoy challenging everyone on their knowledge of Texas trivia and the question that always stumps people is the fact that Texas only has one natural lake. Do you know which lake is the only natural lake in the state of Texas?

If you know the answer then I encourage you to visit us at our next stop: South Street Seaport in New York City. Heck -- I want you to stop by even if you don’t know the answer! Stay tuned for more from the road and check out our schedule so you can come experience all the sights and sounds from Texas on Tour right in your own backyard.
