BlueShoe Nashville News for the 2017 CMA Music Festival

March 5, 2017: Here are our current specials (made available through cancellations):

1) 5-night package at the downtown Courtyard Marriott for two: Premium Lower Level Seats Section 134 or 135. Use promotional code BESTFEST2017 to get 20% off package price.


2) A package for two at the 5-Star Hermitage hotel with seats in the Premium Lower Level Section 134 Row B (that's the second row!) has just become available. Please email or call 615-383-3012 for details. The Hermitage Hotel: our most popular package because some of our very best seats are matched with the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. The Hermitage is located within walking distance of the music venues and the package features five nights (June 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 2017).

Worth noting: The Hermitage Hotel is the only 5-star, 5-diamond hotel in Tennessee. Its rooms are extremely spacious and the beds are the most comfortable we've ever experienced. And you'll love the inhouse restaurant, Capitol Grille.

3) The Thompson Nashville: Music City's newest luxury hotel opened this past fall 2016 and its modern design is stunningly beautiful. See photos here: Thompson Nashville. Its location in one of the coolest neighborhoods in downtown, The Gulch, puts it in an area replete with restaurants, retail, and nightlife. How far is it from the Festival music venues? It's walkable, but it's a far walk (about 1/2 mile to the Music City Center). We have tips, however, on micro-transportation options provided by Joy Ride and Hee Hawling, along with a free bus service provided by the city of Nashville.

Worth noting: The Thompson packages can be booked online with a promotional code (Country2017) that gives you 10% off.

Four-night Thompson packages for June 8, 9, 10, 11, 2017.

Seats available with The Thompson Nashville:

  • Choices of seats in the Premium Lower Level Section 134 or 135
  • Choices of seats in the Premium Club Level Section 234 or 235
  • Floor level seating in Section G Row 5 or 8
