Jeff Griffith's First Music Fest Full Of Surprises

Nashville, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Arrowhead Records) - When Texas recording artist Jeff Griffith arrived in Nashville for his first CMA Music Festival, he never imagined how jam-packed the week would be - or how much fun he would have. 'It was amazing,' Griffith says. 'I loved every minute of it - from the booths to performing - it was incredible.'
Griffith certainly made the most out of his Music Festival debut, but admits to a moment of near-panic when he realized he'd missed his ride in the opening-day festivities parade. 'I was there,' says the sociable Texan. 'But I guess I was talkin' to someone and didn't hear 'em call my name. The driver just fell in line - without me!'

Jeff drew a large crowd to the Ernest Tubb Record Shop for a live interview with and acoustic performance for WSM Radio's Keith Bilbrey. Jeff sang his current hit, 'Holed Up In Some Honky Tonk,' and shared a brand new composition, 'That's Why I Had To Say Goodbye,' with fans. (Photo Credit: Martha E. Moore)
On the Riverfront Stage, Jeff, along with compadre Joe Stampley, held sway over the crowd - and celebrated Joe's 65th birthday with the Moe & Joe classic, 'Good Ol' Boys,' and the title track from Griffith's debut CD, IF IT AIN'T ONE THING IT'S ANOTHER. (Photo Credit: Bev Moser)
In between his Festival activities, Jeff found his way to Hendersonville and the home of legendary songwriter Hank Cochran. 'He was so gracious,' Griffith says of Cochran. 'He's already pitched me some hits for my next album.'
