Custom content-paloosa in Nashville next week

custom content conference logo

Next week, March 24-26, the recently re-named Custom Content Council will be having its annual Custom Content Conference — in the lovely and conveniently located (for me, at least) city of Nashville. I’ve been receiving some email from folks in the custom content world who’ve never been to Nashville asking about things to do and see while in town (although the conference seems pretty packed with activities). So if Nashvillians reading this would like to comment with suggestions, feel free to jump in. Also, the website NowPlayingNashville.com is an idea-packed resource, as well.

The conference planners did a superb job of planning a great program, along with having the conference at a Hotel (the Hutton) convenient to downtown and some of Nashville’s best known landmarks like Music Row (where the content Nashville is known for comes from), Vanderbilt University and the Parthenon. (Oh, and one of my personal favorites, the Station Inn.)

I’ll be attending the entire conference and will be moderating a panel of CEOs of Custom media companies on March 26.

Update: Gwenyth Paltrow just spent three months in Nashville filming a movie and even stayed at the Hutton for three weeks of her stay. Her blog post about the things she did and places she ate is a great suggestion list for anyone wondering what to do in Nashville.

    My go-to recommendations for visitors to Nashville are four music related sites that can't be found anywhere else in the world: Gruhn Guitars, Hatch Show Print, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and yes, the Station Inn.

    Thanks, Fielding. I know I've had a couple of incredible evenings at the Station Inn because you gave me a heads up. All four of your suggestions are uniquely Nashville. (I would throw in Prince's Hot Chicken if it weren't so far from downtown.)
