NASHVILLE -- It's CMA Fest time and Bachelor Nation is showing up and showing out in Nashville.

"This is a big deal for the city, I know it's one of their biggest weekends," Graziadei said. "I lived here, I knew how crazy it gets and I love it. It's nice to be back."

"It's very lively here, everyone seems so nice, the sun's out. It's a beautiful day," Anderson said.

The two bond over their love of country music and named Jelly Roll, Keith Urban and Jordan Davis as some of their favorites.

"There's a lot of great artists and we're just excited to see them all," Anderson revealed.

Joey added, "Yeah, it's gonna be a good weekend. We're excited."
