Pinch us! It was a dream come true to co-sponsor the green room at this year’s CMT Music Awards in Nashville. We loved every minute of the event – from sharing our love for Florida’s Forgotten Coast to being up close and personal for performances (and those collaborations!) that took our breath away.
No backstage pass? No problem! We’re exclusively giving you a behind the scenes look at some of our favorite moments of the night.
One More Silver Dollar …
Some of country music’s finest musicians paid tribute to Southern Rock pioneer, and Nashville native, Gregg Allman to kick off the show. Jason Aldean, Charles Kelley, Darius Rucker and Derek Trucks honored Allman with a performance of Midnight Rider and we were there for their incredible rehearsal just hours before the show.
What Exactly Is A Green Room?
The green room is traditionally a lounge or waiting room for performers, presenters and guests when they’re not on stage. Along with the St. Joe Company, the 30A Company, MySky Aviation and SaltAir 30A, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Beach Properties of Florida wanted to go beyond “green” and create a cool, coastal retreat for guests to enjoy in between sets. Beautifully designed to reflect the warmth and ease of a Forgotten Coast beach home, the green room was the place to be throughout the evening with conversations ranging from albums and awards to coastal escapes and the search for a beach home. It was the perfect backdrop to meet new folks and reconnect with favorite friends. (Hi Lady A!)
Earth, Wind & FIRE
Grooving tonight with the incomparable Earth, Wind & Fire and Lady Antebellum was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, or twice-in-a-lifetime if you caught them playing in downtown Nashville the night before! How can you not jump out of your seat and dance along during this vibrant, creative collaboration.
Choosing A Favorite
It’s hard to choose a favorite part of this incredible event – but seeing so many 30A and St. George Island (SGI) homeowners up on that stage may be our top contender! You may have missed seeing them up close and personal at the CMT Music Awards, but keep your eyes open because your favorite artists may be right in front of you on your next beach stroll!
