RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. The Country Music Association's annual festival officially begins today in Nashville, and one boutique hotel is inviting fans to live local. The Hotel Preston is offering what it calls the redneck package. It includes complimentary pork rinds and a six-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer plus in-room favors: RC Cola and moon pies made in Tennessee. The deal starts at $149 a night - not quite redneck prices. It's MORNING EDITION.
