Hockey Song by Stompin Tom Connors (copyright 1973)


The demand for Nashville has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past five years.  Due to several city wide events it has put considerable pressure on the availablility of hotels and has increased the rates.  As a result, we had to merge two weekends into one last year and will continue to do the same for the upcoming season.  We will continue the one weekend event until the demand for hotels slows down in the city.  As a heads up last year prices ranged on average between $139-$169 for hotels on the outskirts of downtown (airport, brentwood, coolspring and mount juliet areas.  Hotels in downtown and Vanderbilt ares were sold out.  We encourage teams to apply early to ensure we can accomodate your teams.  The deadline for Country & Western Showdown in Nashivlle is December 15th. 

The dates below for each tournament are targeted deadlines.  Given the time crunch in January and February to prepare for the Country & Western Showdown and Capital Showdown it is possible that the dates will slighthly change as we near closer to the actual dates.
