2-Day CMFC Camp
Arrival Day & Opening Reception –
Your Nashville country music experience begins now! You'll start with an opening reception which will be included on the agenda sent to you prior to your arrival date. In our opening reception, you will learn more about the history of country music and more! You'll hear from speakers who currently play or have played with the likes of Willie Nelson, George Jones, George Strait, Tammy Wynette, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, and Reba… plus Sheryl Crow, Miranda Lambert, and Luke Bryan. The list is long! You are in great hands with our seasoned pros! Each Coach has a teaching spirit that matches the culture of Country Music Fantasy Camp.
The opening reception will additionally introduce you to our country music star host, your master of ceremonies, CMFC Dream Team and perhaps most importantly, your singer-songwriter coach. From there, you will then be introduced to the 3 or 4 other band members who will now be a part of your band. (Note: Please specify on your registration if you would like to be with others you already know at your camp). After you've met your band members, you will begin to indicate who can do what. Such as play certain instruments, singing/vocals, writing, producing, or just simple love country music! Next, as a group, you will determine your own group name and start brainstorming your own songs including lyrics.
DAY 1 – Write & Record!
Get ready, because you are in for an amazing 2-day experience with CMFC! We will meet you at Off the Row Studio and Horse Ranch, an 8-acre farm, located in Franklin, TN. Each of our 2-day Camps will be hosted by a renowned country music artists or another well-known artist. After your arrival, you will be welcomed with an assortment of breakfast items plus coffee for your enjoyment. After a welcome message from our host, the artistic writing process will begin in one of the writer’s suites. Don't worry, your assigned mentor will be there to help you facilitate ideas, however, it will be completely up to you and your bandmates to put the song from the lyrics to its own tune. Lunch will be provided by CMFC and you'll get to enjoy a southern-style Nashville bbq. After lunch, you will record your original country music song written by your band while accompanied by your country music artist host, our MC, and professional studio musicians. The day isn't over yet! Next, your band will choose a non-country song from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Brittany Spears or even Metallica and your band will execute this particular song with a country music twist!
DAY 2 – Lights, Camera, Action!
Your final day with us will be one for the record! On your second day, it begins rehearsing with your band at one of Nashville’s great honky-tonks alongside your coach and our professional musicians. They’ll inform and educate you about stage movement and vocal delivery to the audience. Next, it's lights, camera, and action! Once the honky-tonk opens the doors to the public, the audience will shuffle in and YOU and our band take the stage! Imagine sharing a stage performing which many talented artists such as Willie Nelson and Terri Clark, got their start! You will actually walk the steps of music icons like Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Mel Tillis, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, Big $ Rich, Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, and others were discovered on Broadway in Nashville.
