One Year Later – Nashville Season 6 – The Final Season

It’s only been a little over one year since beloved fans of the television show Nashville (“Nashies” as they like to call themselves), were heartbroken when the ABC network cancelled the series, but the Nashville-based cable network, CMT, came to the rescue for the drama after fans took over the Internet with their hashtag, #BringBackNashville in hopes to save the show.

Now we have already seen all of season 5 and fans were guaranteed to see a Season 6 this January in 2018, but unfortunately this fall it was announced that the next season, would be its last. Just a little over a year ago, The CMBeat wrote an article about The Reality Of Nashville Season 5, so in light of the new season being less than a week away from its premiere date, we thought we would do a recap of what all has happened this past season and what everyone could expect from Season 6. (Spoiler Alert! If you don’t want to know what happens in Season 5, might be best to stop reading now!) Continue reading

Gaylord Opryland’s A Country Christmas in Nashville, Tennessee

All throughout the Christmas season, many people rounded up their families and took them on mini road trips, in search of ways to get into the holiday spirit. Popular destinations with these families included places that go all out with their holiday lights and decorations. One such destination in the Nashville, Tennessee area is the one and only Gaylord Opryland Hotel, located just across the parking lot from the famous Grand Ole Opry theater. Even though it’s been 48 hours since Christmas Day came and went, and if you’re not ready to let the spirit of the season go just yet, you still have time to see this spectacular display, which runs through January 1st.

This past November 5th, the hotel ceremoniously flipped the switch to kick off their annual collection of seasonal attractions, collectively called “Gaylord Opryland’s A Country Christmas“. Some of the attractions include an incredible outdoor light display, which includes more than two million lights, a life-sized nativity display, an ice sculpture exhibit, appropriately called “ICE“, horse carriage rides, and an entertaining dinner show featuring the legendary Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers. For the more adventurous visitors, the 2,881 room hotel also features a giant ice slide, an ice skating rink, and snow tubing. Continue reading

The Reality Of Nashville Season 5

Back in May, the ABC network announced that it was not renewing their beloved series, Nashville, which has been filmed on location in Nashville for the past four years and has fueled an increase in tourism in the city. After the announcement, tens of thousands of fans (or “Nashies” as they refer to themselves) took to the internet, armed with the hashtag, #BringBackNashville, in an effort to save the show, or in hopes that another network would pick it up.

Only one month later, their efforts paid off when it was announced that Nashville-based cable network, CMT, was picking up the series and would produce the 5th season. The popular streaming service, Hulu, will also be streaming new episodes beginning the day after they premiere on CMT.

One Week Later – A Look Back on the “Nashville” Finale

Fans of the ABC TV show Nashville (or “Nashies”, as they prefer to be called) were all wondering how producers of the show were going to wrap up so many storylines in only one hour as the network presented the series finale Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

The decision to cancel the series was announced by ABC only a couple weeks beforehand, after the current season 4 was already filmed. However, despite not having time to re-shoot any of the remaining episodes, the show did pretty well bringing closure to most of the plot lines… except one, which was obviously meant to be a season cliffhanger.
