Nash Trash Tour

Nash Trash Tour: What You Need To Know About The HILARIOUS Nash Trash Tour

The Nash Trash Comedy tour is one of the most fun things to do in Nashville. Once you climb aboard the famous pink bus, no holds barred. If you’re easily offended by bawdy humor, the Jugg Sisters aren’t for you. However, if you can take a joke or two, you need to go online and book your tour today. The video below will give you an idea of what you can expect from the tour. However, I did choose to edit out the minute of off-color comedy in case little ears are around when you press play.

The tour is BYOB, and I highly recommend taking a bottle of water or your drink of choice along. The bus stops at the Country Music Hall of Fame for a restroom break, and Nash Trash guests may buy overpriced drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, in the lobby of the CMHOF and bring them back on the bus. However, it makes a lot more sense to bring your own. If you forget to pack a drink before you leave your house or hotel, you can always get snacks and drinks inside the Farmers Market before the tour starts.Z Facebook 1

Please, note the big pink bus is NOT a party bus. While you’ll feel like you’re having a party during the tour because it’s interactive and loads of fun, bachelorette parties are not welcome. The Jugg Sisters don’t want THEIR party to get out of hand.

The Nash Trash tour takes you around Nashville, and the Jugg sisters tell stories about people and places in the city. However, the Nash Trash tour is first and foremost a comedy show on wheels. Its primary purpose is to make you laugh until your cheeks hurt. If you want to really see Music City, there are other tours for that.

The Jugg Sisters Original tour books months in advance. It’s a rare occasion that you can book your trip with the sisters without planning a week, if not months, ahead of time. Check their calendar, and make your reservation today.

Now, go ahead, and watch the video. You’ll get a sneak peek of the tour and two reviews immediately following those highlights.

Iron Fork Nashville 2016

The Nashville Scene is proud to host the 9th annual Iron Fork presented by US Foods. The 2016 Iron Fork event will showcase four of Nashville’s best local chefs battling it out in a head-to-head competition judged by top local foodies and celebrities. The winning Chef will receive the prestigious “Iron Fork” award, a chance to compete in the 2016 World Food Championships — bragging rights for the next year!

During the competition, attendees will sample award-winning cuisine and cocktails from a wide selection of Nashville’s best restaurants. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit The Nashville Food Project.

Get your tickets early. Tickets are currently $35, and will increase to $40 April 1. This is strictly a 21+ event; this exclusion applies to minors who are accompanied by a parent or guardian. No one under 21 years of age will be allowed into the venue.



It was June 2007 and The Nashville Food Project, then operating as a local arm of the Austin-based nonprofit, Mobile Loaves & Fishes, began reaching out to those experiencing homelessness in our city. With a commissary at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, our first catering truck began making runs to homeless camps three days a week to deliver sack-lunch meals. By January 2009, Mobile Loaves & Fishes had moved to the campus of Woodmont Christian Church and added a second truck. And when Nashville flooded in May 2010, Mobile Loaves & Fishes was ready to help: in that three week period, our volunteers delivered more than 19,000 meals to displaced residents, Metro Water Service employees, and others working relief and recovery efforts across the city.

But we knew there was still more to be done. We began considering other ways we could impact our city through the shared experience of food. We wanted to do more than just feed hungry people by dropping off handouts a few times a week. We wanted to incorporate nutrition, gardens, fresh produce and community meals. We wanted to be part of more creative solutions to the local problem of food insecurity, using local funds and local volunteers.

After five years with the parent organization, Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc., our advisory board made the bold move to establish an independent nonprofit in Nashville. In October 2011, The Nashville Food Project was born. We are proud to say that one hundred percent of the money we receive for our work stays right here in our city.

We are focused on how food can be a tool for building up communities. Our mission is to bring people together to grow, cook and share nourishing food, with the goals of cultivating community and alleviating hunger in our city. We know that one in five people in Nashville lacks access to enough food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. But we also know that more than 40% of all the food in our city gets wasted. Through our work we have discovered that solutions to hunger take much more than simple handouts. Poverty, unemployment, low wages and escalating living costs all contribute to the challenges that the most vulnerable residents of our city face.

The Nashville Food Project is sharing food and supporting communities in variety of ways:

  • Grow – In our Gardens we grow organic food intensively, and share resources with others interested in growing their own food
  • Cook – In our Kitchen, we use recovered, donated and garden-grown food to prepare and cook healthy, hot meals.
  • Share – From our Food Trucks we distribute meals from our kitchen and fresh produce from our gardens to people in need.

We offer you a hearty welcome to come by and volunteer soon!

Thanks to the generosity of Country artists playing CMA Music Festival for free, music education programs have been supported, sustained and implemented in communities throughout the country. Music education in a child’s life is more than just practicing for a recital or upcoming school performance. Children exposed to musical training develop fine motor skills, aids emotional and behavioral maturation. Music education at its core is about teaching students to think. The CMA Foundation is investing in the next generation of scholars through music education. Without the CMA Music Festival, the more than $11 million given to support music education would not be possible. Thank you for showing up. Not just for the CMA Music Festival but for students everywhere!

CMA Music Festival Sets New Record at $46.8 Million in Direct Visitor Spending

NASHVILLE—The 2015 CMA Music Festival generated a record $46.8 million in direct visitor spending, an increase of $7.5 million over last year according to numbers released by the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. (NCVC) today.

“The CMA Music Festival is a big part of our brand as Music City, and the event’s enormous economic impact through direct visitor spending is a great thing for Nashville,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “The CMA Foundation’s contribution of instruments to Metro Schools students further strengthens the Festival’s positive impact. I appreciate both the CVC and CMA as incredible partners in bringing more visitors to Nashville and congratulate them for the continued growth and success of CMA Fest.”

This year’s CMA Music Festival sold out seven months in advance prompting a record-setting daily attendance of 87,680 fans – besting 2014 numbers by 9.6 percent, the CMA reported in June. According to the NCVC, the estimated number of room nights for Festival attendees was 158,000—up from 150,000 last year—and the average length of stay was 5.2 days.

“As the city’s largest event, CMA Music Fest continues to outperform itself year after year, generating more visitor spending than any other event and providing prime-time national TV exposure for Music City,” said Ken Levitan, chairman of the NCVC Board of Directors and President of Vector Management. “The CMA’s expansion of the footprint, offering more free music than ever before and extending event days all resulted in record spending, record attendance and record room nights sold. These figures show the CMA’s strategy of keeping the event at an affordable value is important to the overall growth of the event.”

For the first time, the NCVC was able to calculate non-ticket holder direct spending, which represents an additional $13.6 million in direct visitor spending, driving total spending to $60.4 million.

“We worked very hard this year to let local and regional residents know that you don’t need a four-day ticket to enjoy this event,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “There were seven free stages throughout downtown and it is rewarding to see our attendance increase in those areas. It is especially nice when you consider the positive impact on the city, which has been an outstanding partner.”

In addition, the NCVC’s survey results showed:

– 83 percent of attendees traveled more than 50 miles

– 46 percent of attendees were attending for the first time

– 87 percent indicated they were likely to return next year

– 55 percent have an annual household income of $75,000 or more

– 10 percent of visitors were from international markets

The figures are based on the NCVC’s onsite/in-person surveying of 2,219 attendees during the event in June.
