CMT Block Party This was a pre-show to the CMT Awards Show. It was staged live on Broadway between First and Second Avenue, in front of the Hard Rock Cafe before the awards show, alternating with live shots from the "red carpet " at another venue from Nashville's Belmont College. It was a great day for a outdoor show. The CMT trailer was there giving out prizes and memorabilia. The Hard Rock Cafe had a concession stand in the parking lot. I couldn't resist having a hamburger and beer. This was more of a television show, than a concert Van Zant played last. They played only two songs, but had the place rocking during the short time on stage. They were the only band to use the runway, which extended out beyond the middle of the stage. Unfortunately, for Skynyrd fans, their was no Freebird. Johnny Van Zant stopped for a minute to greet a few people from the crowd.
