Riffraff Loves Nashville

In case you weren’t keeping up via Instagram and Snapchat, this past week we were in Nashville, TN selling Charlie Southern tees at country music’s biggest event, CMA Fest. The Charlie Southern booth was a huge hit, and we had a blast running around Nashville. Here are some of our favorite moments from the trip…

We started our 9 hour road trip at 4 am, so naturally had to stop for breakfast at Arcade in Memphis… as we pulled up a 1950s movie was being filmed!

We finally made it to Nashville, and all freaked out when we pulled up to our adorable Airbnb.

After getting settled in, we had an amazing dinner at Bar Taco, then headed to the Honky Tonks!

Wednesday morning we leisurely explored the neighborhood around our Airbnb, 12 South…

Ready to set up the booth… yes Kelsey, Alex, and Kirsten all matched…

After set up, we walked outside the Music City Center and right onto the CMA Awards red carpet! We finished up the night with dinner at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken (and a fun Riffraff geotag!)

Kelsey is MAJORLY obsessed with radio host, Bobby Bones, so obviously freakout out when she and Adrienne got to meet him!

…and freaked out even more when he posted not one, but TWO, of our tees!!!

Overall, Nashville, thanks for showing us such a great time… we can’t wait to come back, ASAP! If you want to see more from our trip (like when we kicked it with Sadie Robertson for a hot second) check out #riffrafflovesnashville.

P.S. Kirsten, Adrienne, Kelsey, Stephanie, Lindsey.. trips like this wouldn’t be near as much fun if weren’t for how easy-going, hard working, and hilarious y’all are. Love you lots… xoxoxo, alex
