ACM Awards 2010
WOW!!!! This weekend was sooooo CRAZY!!! Where do I even start???? I got into Vegas on Saturday at 4 pm and we hit the ground running!!!! I went up and met my boss in his suite and waited for him to finish making Rhonda Adkins (Trace Adkins wife) look fabulous!!! Then we headed to a Villa at the MGM hotel to attend a quick party for Broken Bow Records.
Then we headed to a private party downstairs hosted by Justin Boots and Wrangler jeans. Where we hungout with Trace and Rhonda Adkins, Hollywood from American Gladiator and Chuck Wicks.
Then it was off to the Private Dr. Pepper Performance Party with Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Trace Adkins, Laura Bell Bundy and Sugarland. Where Trace and Blake we awarded the first ACM Award of the weekend for Vocal Performance of the Year where we had all access passes and hung out backstage.
And the night wasn't over yet!!!! After the Dr. Pepper party we were head to Harrahs for a party with Toby Keith at his bar I Love This Bar. We watched Randy Houser perform and hung out with Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, Joe Nichols, some NFL players and Robin Leach.
Then we finally went back to the hotel to catch a little sleep before we had to be up and styling for the actual awards on Sunday Morning. We styled so many fun beautiful women and men including...... The women from Justin Boots and Wrangler, Eric Church's wife Catherine, Teri Hendricks (her husband produced Hillbilly Bone by Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton), The NFL Players and their wives, Trace and Rhonda Adkins, Eddie Montgomery from Montgomery Gentry and many many more. I was super busy and didn't take very many picture of this process.
Once we were done working it was time to eat, catch some zzzz's and getting ready for the after party. We once again had all access passes and were lucky enough to hang out backstage in the artist lounge. It was so fun to see all of the performers in their own element away from the fans and paparazzi. The party was kind of an after concert for everyone who bought tickets to the Awards. So the artists performed for them and the screen behind the band was kind of like a one way mirror. We were seated at tables behind the screen and we could see the audience but they couldn't see us. It was a really neat experience!!!! Since we were in the holding area which was a "safe haven" for all the celebs I couldn't take any pictures of them but I did get some fun ones of the group I was with.
The next day when all the festivities were over I got some down time to spend with my dad, whom I haven't seen since I moved to Tennessee!! We took my new friend Lindsey around town with us because she had never been to Vegas. We shopped at Caesars Palace and Fashion Show Mall and then ate at Serendipity and then went to The Cirque Show Le Reve!!
My weekend was a blast to say the least!!! There are a ton more pictures on my facebook page so if you want to see them all you can check them out there!!! Next on my Tennessee Adventure is working a fashion show called Unpredictable. It is this coming Sunday so I will take lots of pictures and post again soon!!!! Love and Miss You All!!!
