Comedian, travel expert and reluctant daredevil Bert Kreischer recently traveled to Nashville to shoot an episode of his new Travel Channel show Trip Flip during the Country Music Awards Music Festival.

I went here to: Take travelers to the CMA Fan Fest and surrounding adventures.

The best way to travel here is: By plane- American Airlines preferably.

I stayed at: The Loew's right by Vanderbilt.

When it comes to packing: I am meticulous on the outbound flight and a mess on the return home.

The best thing I ate was: Fried chicken at Monell's.

I wish I hadn't: Eaten as much fried chicken and sweet tea at Monell's.

Don't miss: Your opportunity to buy great cowboy boots in Nashville.

Next time I will definitely: Spend a day in Pigeon Forge.

My favorite part of the trip was: Seeing Hank Williams Jr. at LP Field.

My advice would be: Spend some time on Broadway and slide into a dive bar for some great music.
