This weekend has been a whirlwind needless to say. I need to play catch-up sometime on my blog with some photo posts. I have that Nashville trip, as well as many other happenings.
Friday night I got to attend the Unbridled Even Derby Eve Gala in Louisville, followed up with a concert by Fifth on the Floor and Unknown Hinson. The next morning, I woke up and traveled down to Pigeon Forge for a VW Car show. (photos later of it) It was my 3rd year attending Unbridled Eve and needless to say, it is always a hoot. Surprisingly enough though, throughout all of the Derby Eve parties and KY Derby events, quite a few celebrities cancelled or were no shows. Ice T the rapper and Coco, as well as Jo Dee Messina were advertised to be at Unbridled Eve, but did not show up. However, Frankie Ballard, Kris Allen, and many others were on hand. By far, Robin Meade was the best dressed of the night. See photos below of the festivities! Click here for the article that Leslie wrote for Examiner.com.
