CMA Fest 2016 just wrapped up in Nashville, Tennessee, and one of the artists that fans were able to see around town in various locations was the beautiful, talented, and kind Jessie James Decker. Decker has long been an artist who anybody would want to support, as she is humble and appreciative of every person who stands behind her in her career, so CMA Fest was the perfect place to spend some time with the socially savvy singer, songwriter, and business woman.
Over the weekend, fans were able to see Decker perform at her own show among friends, as well as at the Opry, marking the third time she has been on the legendary stage. Even though the idea of stepping back into the venue and experiencing a place with so much history once again is exciting in itself, the performance aspect wasn’t the thing Decker was most anticipating.
It’s going to be a lot of fun, but I also really like to see the fans because that’s what it’s all about and I care for them first.
The Opry was scheduled as the finale to Decker’s CMA Fest weekend, but it wasn’t her biggest event. At City Winery Nashville on Friday night, Decker held her own show, Girls Night Out. While she served as the headliner, she called on “a good group of girlfriends,” Jamie Lynn Spears, Post Monroe, and Nicole Johnson to join the party and perform.
There was no doubt Decker would draw large audiences for any and all events she had on tap for the weekend, and this is likely because she has one of the most loyal and steadfast fan bases in the industry. Embracing her ability to generate support and maintain relationships with those who make up her fandom, Decker attributes the strong connection to her authenticity with her followers.
I’m honest and I’m real with them and I don’t hold anything back, and I think that they can relate to that. I think I’m honest with them and they know that I don’t ever really try to fake anything, and I just keep it real, and I think that’s how girls really are, so why put on a front?
As always, chatting with Jessie James Decker, even ever-so-briefly, was an absolute pleasure. She is working on finalizing plans to release new music and, of course, we will have all the information here at NashvilleGab as soon as she can share the details.
