Catfish recently came to Nashville! You may be thinking, hey, there’s already plenty of catfish in the lakes and rivers of Tennessee. Silly you. I’m talking about the MTV show Catfish. And if you didn’t already know, catfishing is a relatively new term that’s become popularized over the past few years. To be a catfish means you’re pretending to be someone on the internet that you’re not, and you spend your free time essentially preying on other people. Hence, the show Catfish was created.
To give you a little bit of a background on the show just in case you didn’t already know, one of the hosts, Nev, was catfished by some chick back in the day. Their relationship got so close that he thought he was in love with the person – which happens a lot more now than you may think. Anyway, Nev found out that he was being played eventually, and now helps out others that are in the same situation. Often times, the person that is believed to be a catfish is really the person that the person who contacted the show has been talking to all along. Most of the time though, it’s not.
Now back to the primary subject of the post.
In episode 4 of the new season of Catfish, the crew is called upon by a young lady in New York because she believes she’s being catfished by a country boy that lives in Nashville, Tennessee named Graham. Turns out, Graham is really who he claimed to be, but that didn’t stop the Catfish crew from paying a visit to Music city.
I’ll admit, I’ve been a pretty avid watcher of the show for quite some time now, and have seen all of the episodes. Catfish just released their 6th season and in all of the time leading up to it, I have never seen them visit Nashville. They also visited Knoxville at during the beginning of season 6 when another kid that thought he was being catfished, Spencer, thought he was talking to singer Katy Perry.
Looks like season 6 is a hot spot for Tennesseans.
While surfing YouTube for content ideas for this blog, we came across a video that just about sums about many of the things that you won’t catch many people in Nashville saying. It’s satirical, funny, and just the thing you may need to perk you up for the day. 😉
At least for a few minutes anyways…
Enough with the small talk, let the video speak for itself.
As a citizen of Music city, do you agree with what people are saying in this video? Oh, we mean NOT saying, haha.
Tell us about it!
Kudos to J. Bryan Dill of ‘The Nashville Collective’ for making us laugh today.
Everyone loves a good laugh, but boy do we love to laugh at epic sports fails. We recently came across the video posted below, which shows some of the funniest sports fails from February of 2015.
The moral of the story is to watch, learn, and strive to not make the same mistakes, which could potentially hurt you in a way. Just to be on the safe side, it’s a good idea to remember these fails the next time you play the same sport. 😉
Not only is Nashville home to country music and some of it’s most promising country stars, it’s also the station for our national sports teams such as the Tennessee Titans, Nashville Sounds, Predators, Vols, and more. Locals have the option to visit local sports practices of some of their favorite teams, and attend a variety of sports games that go on year round.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. At the infamous Bridgestone arena, there are a wide variety of concerts and events including Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. And you don’t have to strictly be a country music fan to attend. No matter what type of music you favor whether it’s rap, rock, pop, or hip-hop, there will be a concert near you every month or two. Check out one of the many Nashville websites to see concerts for the rest of the year and their showtimes. But the music doesn’t stop at the arena; the downtown Nashville area is filled with clubs and bars that are always playing music or having music played at them by local musicians. The Piano Bar is a great one that comes to mind.
Centennial Park is another great historical place in the downtown area which is great for families and groups of all shapes and sizes to exercise, hang out, play, and overall have a very relaxing day.
If you’re more into shopping, the central Nashville area is littered with shops for all tastes. If you have been waiting to get yourself a nice pair of country boots or a hat, will should find what you want and more at one of the local shops downtown.
Food buffs everywhere will enjoy some of the finest tastes of food in the region. There are hundreds of restaurants to select from, and you won’t find the big establishments like O-Charley’s and Logans but instead, local tastes that are unique and sure to impress and satisfy.
The views of Nashville are astounding with the many buildings and historical sites that are all around. If you haven’t experienced Nashville already, we highly suggest that you do so. We must warn you however that there can be an overwhelming amount to do, and you will probably need to make more than one visit to take all of it in. Have fun!
Sports games in Nashville can attract lots of fans which is good for the team, but bad for the time you have to spend waiting in traffic while trying to leave the parking lots.
No matter what kind of game you are attending in downtown Nashville, you want to prepare yourself at the least to avoid long waiting times in traffic and the extensive hunt for a parking spot that is relatively close to the field or arena you’re going to. This may be out of your control when the game is over since everyone seems to want to leave at once, but you can do it before the game starts however.
Leaving your home early for the game is the best way to avoid lots of parking hassles and larger crowds of people walking into the stadium. The closer it gets to the game starting, the more people seem to begin flooding in. Therefore, arriving the stadium the game you’re attending is at, is a sure fire way to avoid getting stuck in a big mess.
It may sound rather inconvenient to leave early for a game but if you want to take it easy while mostly everyone else is busy being tied up in a crowd, it’s the best option. But just how early should you leave?
How close you live to the Nashville area is one of the bigger factors to consider when knowing how early you should leave for the game. If you live 30 minutes away, you may want to leave anywhere from 15-30 minutes early but again, this is all up to you.
Keep in mind that no matter how early you leave there will still be fans like yourself that are doing the same thing, and getting their too early can cause longer waiting times until the game starts. To each his own.
The Tennessee Titans will hold their first of 9 practices that are open to the public to watch on July 31, 2015. These training camps are the only time of the year that the national teams practices are open to the public and did we mention, for free?
The training camp hotline can be reached at (615) 565-4190.
As for parking, fans can park for free at the Saint Thomas Sports Park, located in the CVS/Caremark corporate offices at 445 Great Circle Road. It’s important to note that parking at this location is limited to the area and parking on the property of other businesses in the area can result in towing.
Seating is limited and fans should prepare to stand, as bleacher seats fill up fast.
How Should I Dress?
Accordingly to the hot or cold weather, and any other possible condition such as rain. Bringing an umbrella is advised.
If the weather begins to interfere with practice conditions, the practice will be moved to the indoor facility, in which space is even more limited.
Can I Bring a Camera or Video Camera?
Photography cameras are the only type of device permitted. Other cameras, video cameras, and cameras on cell phones are prohibited for fans, and recommended to not be brought onto the property.
Will There Be Concessions and Merchandise?
A Coca-Cola stand will be available for concessions, and fans are permitted to bring any of their own. A merchandise tent will also be present.

Nashville is known for a lot of things, including some of their biggest sports teams like the Titans, Sounds, and the Predators.
These are all national teams that you don’t want to miss out on watching play when they are in their home stadium, and some of the best teams in Nashville to watch at that.
If you are looking to get in on the fun but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, Nashville Sound’s games are one of the most fun and wallet friendly sports events you can go to. But if price is no problem for you, attending a Tennessee Titans or Nashville Predators game may be more up your alley.
