It was a big few weeks in Nashville with CMA Fest and the Stanley Cup coinciding and even though in the end the Nashville Predators lost the Stanley Cup to the Pittsburgh Penguins. according to Dierks Bentley the city has done a lot for hockey over the past several weeks: “I’ve got some friends who work for the NHL, and they said they’ve never seen an atmosphere like the one here in Nashville. They said it’s like collegiate – the chants, the way everyone chants together and the volume is the loudest they’ve ever heard it anywhere in the country.

Dierks was right smack dab in the middle of all of it too…
