Meghan was lucky enough to have a fun lunch date with four great guys!


After lunch the group took the “Official Redneck Tour of Nashville” and became “certified rednecks”.

In the evening the group headed to the Grand Ole Opry to see performers like Mark Wills, Kristian Bush, and the Charlie Daniels Bands among many performers.


The performance by the Charlie Daniels Band was incredible. The guys were mesmerized and everyone had goosebumps when they sang the devil went down to Georgia. Eugene Pearla, a chaperone for the trip, made it onstage!

All of the performers were amazing and the night was definitely unforgettable. Jim Ed Brown, pictured in the first photo, was inducted into the Opry’s Golden Hall of Fame. He sang Little Jimmy Brown. Bobby Osborne, second photo, sang Rocky Top, and Kristian Bush and Mark Wills are pictures three and four. The last photo shows Kristian Bush singing Gravity.
