Nashville Wouldn't Be Nashville

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Meeting 2015 was in Nashville, Tennessee.  I love to attend the conference and expo, and especially like when Bob can go with me.  This year I got Bob a "guest" pass, which gave him access to the opening session and the 300 + exhibits.  

We drove to Nashville, taking our time and staying half-way going and coming.  While the weather was cold and raining on opening day, the rest of the trip was warm.  We dined every evening on Broadway Street, where there are country music performers providing entertainment in most of the establishments.  As a Nutrition Network Blogger and Stone Soup Blogger, I was invited to two receptions (both on rooftops) and Bob and I got to enjoy appetizers and I tasted some pomegranate moonshine.  

The verse is from song lyrics by Tim McGraw:

"It'd be just another river town.
Streets would have a different sound.
There'd be no honky tonks with whiskey rounds,
No dreamers chasing dreams down.
No tourists takin' in the sights,
No stetsons under Broadway lights,
No pickers playin' for pocket change,
No rhinestone boots in an old church stage.

You know it's true. . . 
Nashville wouldn't be Nashville
Without you."
