2. All day Saturday: Enjoy Bell Buckle! There will be ‘plein air’ artists setting up their easels all over town and painting in the open air, as well as various artisans of all kinds (jewelry makers, blacksmith, weavers, mixed media artists) demonstrating their skills and offering their wares for sale. Wander through our antique malls, specialty shops and boutiques. Eat lunch at one of our delicious little restaurants (you’ll get a complete list and description). Take the Historic Walking Tour. Talk to folks and take lots of pictures!

5. Sunday morning Gospel Brunch: A short devotional, more fabulous food, intimate concert, fellowship time, AND… karaoke to Russ Taff’s greatest hits!

***LOCATION: Bell Buckle is about an hour out of Nashville, between Murfreesboro and Shelbyville. The closest airport is Nashville International Airport.

***LODGING: Bell Buckle is a small village of around 450 people, so there are no hotels right in town. There are a few B&B’s, but some of them have already sold out– I will publish a complete list of room availability in Bell Buckle within the next few days.
Several hotels and B&Bs in Shelbyville (11 miles away) are offering a special rate of $75 + tax if you tell them you are attending Russ and Tori’s Bell Buckle Weekend!
We are working on obtaining discounted rates at other hotels/B&Bs in the area, including Murfreesboro, Manchester and Tullahoma.

Russ recently joined Amy Grant and friends at Ritz-Carlton’s beautiful Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, GA for a weekend retreat designed to reawaken the creative spark in each of us. The weekend featured performances and workshops from songwriter Leslie Satcher and playwright Tricia Rose Burt. It was an amazing experience from beginning to end!
