IMPORTANT: You do not have to be a songwriter or musician to enjoy this trip. Most of our Field Trippers are simply music lovers who like to laugh, enjoy life and see a Nashville that most tourists will never see.
“I have made so many new friends, and discovered some amazing musicians I would never have known about. You and Deana Lynn are wonderful. I came with 4 of my dearest friends. We’ve been around the world together, and this, we all agreed, has been the best trip we’ve ever taken together.” – Sandy
“This trip has exceeded all my expectations. I am blown away. Your hospitality and willingness to share so much with us… This has been wonderful.” – Terri
“You and Deana Lynn always amaze me, how you just open your hearts and your home like this. The perfect hosts. I always drive home with my mind kind of swirling about what just happened.” – Kevin, A FIVE-TIME Nashville Field Tripper!
Just $699/person. Here’s what you get:
Your weekend includes 1) an off-the-beaten-path tour of Music City; 2) live entertainment by some of Nashville’s most talented songwriters and musicians; 3) home-cooked or catered meals each night; 4) jam sessions and feedback on your own music; 5) a day in a Nashville studio watching how music is made and singing on one of Antsy’s recordings for an upcoming album; 6) maybe a live Trailer Park Troubadours show: Antsy often books a BONUS live band show in Nashville the Thursday night before Field Trips. So if you come a day early we can extend the party. Check in with Antsy HERE to see if your preferred weekend has that option. (We should know within 60 days BEFORE the trip.)
Travel and hotel not included. But we can recommend hotel options for you that are close by and reasonable. The Field Trips start at 5 PM on Friday and our last event goes until late Sunday night, so make your travel plans accordingly.
Again, you don’t have to be “musical” to enjoy this weekend. We have a wide mix of people at each Field Trip, from professionals who want to be better writers, to weekend pickers, to folks who just enjoy live music and want to see Nashville in a way they’d never be able to as a regular tourist.
Nashville has become a wonderful town for foodies, with a variety to choose from. Here we are at Woolworths on 5th, the renovated site of the original sit-in of the Civil Rights movement, now a cool restaurant serving people from all over the world. It has a good menu, but an even better vibe.
“Just think of it as a weekend at a friend’s house eating great food, and all these amazing musicians keep dropping by.” – Bob
Travel notes: Our first event is Friday at 5 PM, (unless you come in a day early to attend one of our Douglas Corner concerts), and our last event goes late Sunday night, so you’ll want to make your travel plans accordingly. If you want to spend a few extra days before or after, many folks do that, and we are happy to help with restaurants, parts of town, site-seeing destinations, etc., to make your stay in Nashville as enjoyable as possible. Just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org once you’ve made your reservations with us.
To our Airstream and RVer cousins: There are many great locations with full hook ups near us. E-mail us at email@example.com for a list of RV park locations that come highly recommended by other campers we’ve had join us.
Hotel and Air BnB info: Any hotel or Air BnB near the airport would be a perfect distance from where you’ll need to go, and there are plenty of options there with reasonable rates. Tourist season (From June to early Sept) will be a tad bit higher, but if you reserve early, it won’t be that much different. If you want less expensive, non-chain options, anything on the East side of town, in the areas of Hermitage or Donelson might be fine, but as is typical with travel in any strange city, research the area before making your reservation.
We’ll see you in Nashville!
* Cancellation policy: Our Field Trips are tailor-made, intimate events, with a maximum of 14 Field Trippers each weekend. A lot of custom planning goes into the weekend to make it the best possible experience for everyone. Our promotion efforts for each Field Trip stop at around 45 days prior to each event, making it impossible for us to replace cancelled participants after that time. If you have paid but wish to cancel, you can do so up to 60 days prior to the event and receive a refund, minus a cancellation fee of $100. Refunds may take up to 45 days to issue. No refunds 60 days prior to the event. If you wish to postpone to a future Field Trip, you can do so up to 60 days prior (space permitting) and we can move your spot(s) for a $100 fee per person, and we’ll look forward to seeing you next time. Thanks for your understanding.
