@JoeDoe: I'm sure you are not the only one who blocked out that particular date for this, so I'm doing everything on the assumption that we're keeping that date. We want ya there!! :)
@jawillin: I'm not sure (I live about a hour and a half away), but I can find out! Typically, Franklin is one of the more upscale areas in Nashville, so I'm guessing that it would be pricier, but you never know. My sister lives in Nashville, so I'm going to call her too. She seems to know everyone within a 30-mile radius of the city, so she might have an in with a hotel owner or something :P.
well, i used to know all kinds of folks in the hotel biz, i worked for hampton inn, but that was years ago,
i'm about the same distance away, and i know zilch of the area, so, i'll concentrate on spreading the word, and being there !!
