Dessert & Wine with Sara Evans ~ CMA Week – {Nashville Music Event Photographer}

CMA Week was so busy but so much fun!  One of the highlights of the week included a Dessert & Wine event with the beautiful, fun and hilarious Sara Evans!  I think by this point in the week…everyone is exhausted and delirious, so why not ham it up for the camera, right?  We all chose to practice Sara’s “recommended new favorite pose”!…which obviously many of us didn’t quite “get it!”  We sure had fun trying!  Thanks RCA & Sara for a great night!  Tyler Farr joined in the fun as well!

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!  :-)

Jake Owen ~ Miranda Lambert ~ Jason Aldean at Fenway Park – {Nashville Music Photographer}

What an awesome trip to Boston and Fenway Park….special thanks to RCA Records and Columbia Records!  With great showcase on Friday night for Leah Turner, a Duckboat tour of the city, a private tour of Fenway Park, meet & greet and sound check with Jake Owen and Miranda Lambert and lastly a packed house after party at the House of Blues with entertainment from Dee Jay Silver and showcase for Bush Hawg…the weekend was a blast…lots of music and lots of fun!  Stayed tuned for highlights from the Chicago/Wrigley Field Events!
