    Muddy Roots 2020 Postponed to 2021

    Whelp, we held out as long as we could. When we first decided to continue it was because Tennessee was barely affected by Covid. The numbers were minimal. Everyone locked down and made it even safe. But, then they opened back up. Most people around here don’t even believe it is a threat. We have friends and family that get sick. Most have mild cases and get over it. Or atleast, we believe they do. The long term affects are not yet determined. But, some people we know have had strokes, been hospitalized for weeks, brutal pneumonia, and a few have even died.

    Tennessee is now spiking higher than ever. The Governor has extended the state of emergency to August 29th, just a few days before Muddy. The Mayor of Nashville has rolled us back to Phase 2 opening. Many others are requiring masks in public places. Not having a unified response has weakened our state more than we should be during a pandemic.

    We are forced to postpone the 11th annual Muddy Roots Music Festival to Labor Day weekend 2021. It’s always the same holiday. Sep 2-5, 2021 Almost the entire lineup has already confirmed their performance.

    Everything is pushed forward. The performance. Your tickets. Everything.

    We saved your name and ticket number just in case you lose it in that time. If you do lose it just email us and we will mark it as lost or stolen and issue you a new number.

    If you can’t make it next year, then your ticket is good for 2022.

    If you don’t want to come at all you may gift or sell your ticket to someone else. That has always been our policy.

    2021 tickets are on sale now. 2020 ticket link has been disabled.

    Physical copies are still being mailed out. We also have a gift being designed now for you that will also arrive in the mail down the road so please keep your mailing address updated with us.

    We appreciate your support. Please stay the fuck home so we can get back to making shit happen. Please be understandable.

    Nashville Boogie Hotels

    October will be here before you know it and folks are looking to book their rooms for the 6th annual Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender! Please note that the event is no longer held at the Opryland Hotel Resort. You can indeed still stay there but we have no shuttles to and from. The Boogie is entirely at Music Valley Village. That means we will have music at the Nashville Palace and Scoreboard Grill. The car show and vendor area is open to the public behind the Palace.

    We’ve compiled a list of hotels within walking distance.
    There are no group discounts at any of them as we have purposely decided to decrease the size of the event. We expect all these local hotels to fill up though.

    A quick google search for the week of the event can be found HERE.

    The list includes:

    Club Wyndham Nashville
    Holiday Inn Express & Suites
    Fiddler’s Inn
    Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville Opryland
    Hyatt Place Nashville/Opryland
    The Inn at Opryland
    Days Inn at Windham Nashville/Opryland
    Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott
    Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center

    and of course Air B-n-B found HERE.

    oh, and the Hank Snow Ranch, just a short drive away. Reservations found HERE.

    All the airport hotels are within a 10 minute driving distance as well.

    As of now we have only had one cancellation and that is Scotty Baker from Australia. His country is holding him hostage. He’ll be back at the Boogie in 2021.

    Don’t fret if you can’t make it this year. Your tickets are good for 2020, 2021, or 2022.

    Tickets can be found HERE.

    We’ll update the site and ship out tickets in July.

    This event is sponsored by me and my day job as a REALTOR.

    Muddy Roots Europe Postponed

    DAMNIT It breaks our hearts to announce the postponement of the 9th annual Muddy Roots Europe Festival, held in Waardamme Belgium. It’s the right thing to do. Safety of our Muddy family comes first. We’re not even sure if bands and visitors can even make it by then anyway. Let’s not risk it.

    This hits emotionally, spiritually, and financially. It’s hard on morale, but we know that the big Muddy in Tennessee is still on and we can come back to Belgium next summer.

    Don’t worry, your tickets are good for up to 2 years in Belgium. If you purchased a ticket for 2020, then you can use it for 2021 and 2022.
    If you would like to purchase a ticket to 2021 you can do it right HERE.

    If you live nearby, you can support the venue by ordering take-away meals at this time. Nicky and Annelore are our partners and run an incredible American Steak House all year long.
    Get more info on the venue HERE.

    We’ll be cleaning out our storage unit during this quarantine and putting up rare merch for sale in our fb group HERE and in our online store, HERE if there are more than a few of each item.

    Thank you to the Muddy Rockwell for the design.

    Nashville Boogie Updates

    We never would’ve thought that moving the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender from May to October would be saving it from a worldwide pandemic. Luckily, the show will go on!
    There are already a ton of new changes in store for you. We decided to go back to our roots in our 6th year. We ditched the massive resort. It was a fun 5 year fling in a pretty place but we got tired of the corporate atmosphere. It didn’t flow as well with the festival being across the street from it’s self. Now we are entirely in the Music Valley Center parking lot. The primary venue is the classic honky tonk, The Nashville Palace. We will also be taking over the Scoreboard Grill, whose doors stay open 23 hours a day for us. The car show and vintage vendor bazaar are in the parking lot between the two venues. We will grow to other venues on the same property as we move forward.

    First order of business, get your tickets now. We no longer have room for thousands of attendees. Get them right HERE.
    We will mail hard copies in June.

    Before we go in to more details, let’s talk about the amazing lineup!
    Nashville Boogie Vintage 2020
    What??? Tiger Army? Levi & The Rockats reunion for the 2nd time in 40 years? A Wild Records party? Bands and fans from all over the world make this a legend of a weekend.

    We’ll post videos and all information over at soon.

    We have much more to discuss, so don’t go nowhere.

    The Hot Rod Boogie Car Show is FREE to the public. This portion of the event has live DJs, classic cars, a vintage vendor bazaar, and is a fundraiser for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Friday evening will be a cruise-in with reserved parking near the vendor bazaar. The official car show is Saturday, October 3rd behind the Nashville Palace. Our pal “Axle” is coming out from Southern California to host the car show with us this year. You may know him from his own weekender, the Rhythm Collision as well as his work Viva Las Vegas car show for 20 years. Registration available soon.
