A Party for People Living Life on the Move
The Monday before the Country Music Awards, over 100 members of country music crews — from the teams of Maren Morris to Blake Shelton — joined NOMATIC for an end of tour party in Nashville. Our guests were people who literally live LIFE ON THE MOVE, spending nights on a tour bus, waking up every day in a new city. We wanted to celebrate them by giving them a chance to reconnect (as well as gifting these travelers our awesome travel gear).
This party was the culmination of the hard work of many people. Not only did it take the efforts of the team here at NOMATIC, but we had the help of Jason Kimball from Enso, Kyle Creamer from Radio Sobro, as well as Annie Clements and Thad Beaty from Sugarland.
A Chill Atmosphere
The party took place in the third story of a historic motor vehicle factory. It was a great space with wooden banisters, exposed brick and a view of Nashville.
Nashville cook, Kris “Peanut” O’Conner — known for keeping people happy on many a country concert tour — kept our guests’ bellies full with the kind of stick-to-your-bones cooking that makes you feel like you’re cuddled up in a quilt on a cozy couch. Her Dr. Pepper ribs, candied bacon and bread pudding made everyone wish they weren’t quite so full, so there’d be space for seconds (or thirds).
The Murder Shower
Our guests also went crazy for the “murder shower” photo booth designed by Annie Clements. If you don’t know what a murder shower is, you’re not alone. Apparently, when a tour rolls up to the event venue, everyone gets assigned a dressing room. The star gets a high-class dressing room and the rest of the crew… doesn’t. Turns out, there are some pretty wretched showers out there. Our crew member guests got a kick out of taking pictures with the bloody shower curtain and real toilet.
NOMATIC bags for Life on the Move
Best of all, we gave away 75 bags during the event — and everyone went crazy for them. As people who travel for a living, these crew members told us NOMATIC bags are a game changer. So much so that one NOMATIC team member said he had people coming up to him to show him all the features. “They started pitching me the bag,” he said.
