Sony Music Girl’s Night Out – {Music Photography Nashville}

Every year in the music industry there is an annual event for all the people in Country Music Radio.  This event brings the wonderful people of country music radio to NashVegas for the week for all kinds of programs and events!  http://countryradioseminar.com/

Sony Music Nashville hosts a really fun way for the girls of the industry to hang out, catch up and bond over activities that only the girls truly appreciate.  Sony’s female artists including Miranda Lambert, Sara Evans, Leah Turner & Clara Henningsen of  The Henningsens trio, join girls working in the music industry for signature cocktails, delicious apps and cupcakes by….Ivy Cake Designs.

Fun activities include, manicures, massages, screen printed bags by Hip Hues… and last but certainly not least the Funny Photo Booth provided by…wait for it…Edwards Photography Studios.  Even though he’s a guy, Knipper gets to join in the fun!  Does Jerrod Neimann crash this party?…no way!

Afterwards, Knipper leads us to Pinewood Social where RCA artists Love & Theft and Sara Evans enjoy bowling and fun with their promotions team!

Enjoy these highlights…

Jake Owen ~ Kelly Clarkson ~ Jason Aldean at Wrigley Field – {Nashville Music Photographer}

As promised..highlights from the Chicago/Wrigley Field Events!!….Another awesome showcase for Leah Turner at Bub City on Friday night, following a packed day of activities on Saturday starting with a private tour of Wrigley Field, meet & greet and sound check with Jake Owen and Kelly Clarkson and another packed house after party at Joe’s Bar with entertainment from Dee Jay Silver and showcase for Bush Hawg!

These artists have been so fun to work with and the RCA & Columbia “families” couldn’t be any better.  For music lovers and concert go’ers all over…you would simply be in awe of what all goes into preparing for a show.  Seeing the empty stadium buzzing with concession and beverage prep, seating, and security is just a show in itself.  From the massive stage, lighting and sound equipment to the carefully detailed schedule for each artist, including sound check, radio visits, meet & greets, wardrobe and backstage prep, I was in awe of how much work it is.  Next time your at a show…think about all the work that went on behind the scene to make it happen and you will appreciate it even more!!

Lastly, I must share my “pyro” experience.  Even though my work for the concert was done, I stuck around for the Jason Aldean performance.  I’m on the side of the stage, when a guy asks me if someone covered “pyro” with me…which somehow I missed that in the chaos of set change.  He said, stand in that corner & cover your ears..it’s about to get really loud and really hot…trust me!  Well, a little freaked out, I do just that as the fireworks explode immediately after!  The band runs out on stage for the first song..see link..full video is pretty awesome if you have the time (skip 1st 50 seconds).. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmXC0SSO8jA.  Once I got used to the explosion of fireworks,  I look at the guy and mouth a huge THANK YOU, bc let’s face it, I would have ended up falling of the back of the stage for sure!  Throughout the song, fireworks explode to the beat..hence the “Bang Bang Bang” lyrics in his song…Crazy Town!  :-)  I can feel the music and the energy throughout the stadium and even though I’m completely exhausted, working on little sleep and have been dragging my equipment around all day, I can’t help but think…I LOVE my job!! :D

RCA family presents Jake and his wife with a plaque…the week Baby Olive Pearl was born, his song went number one..now that’s a good week!  :-)
