Yesterday, December 9th, CMTT had the opportunity to hang out backstage at the ACA’s in Backstage Creations’ “Celebrity Retreat.” They specialize in award show gifts and creating a retreat for the celebrities at various awards shows! I must say this was a very cool experience. There were an array of companies there representing their products and giving us the inside scoop on what items the celebrities were picking out!
McFadin features handbags and luggage handmade by two sisters from Texas. Country celebs sure like their products as Taylor Swift and Reba have worn their purses. In fact, they shared with us that Reba has called them personally about ordering a bag for her once costar Joanna Garcia from the “Reba” sitcom! ACA host Kristen Chenoweth had been back to visit the retreat and she picked out some VERY cute boots by Bottero. She also visited GameMill Entertainment and tried her hand at Wii’s Country Dance! We also talked with jeri designs, which makes customized guitar straps worn by Hank Williams Jr., Taylor Swift and many more.
The retreat is fun, stylish and supports a good cause. A donated Fender guitar is being signed by the celebrities coming in and out of the retreat and will be auctioned off to support the Northern Nevada American Red Cross.
Here is a list of the gift items selected for the Celebrity Retreat:
