Big-hearted Nashville, or ‘Music City USA’, is heralded as the undisputed capital of country music. The ever-present creative vibe and entrepreneurial spirit is deep rooted and extends throughout the city to the art, culture and food.
Kick off your Nashville experience by learning about Nashville’s musical past and present at one of the city’s many music-themed attractions. Where better to start than the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which features ever-changing exhibits on the legends of country music past along with today’s hottest stars. Take a tour of Music Row and visit historic RCA Studio B, the famous recording studio where Elvis recorded more than 200 songs, visit the Glen Campbell Museum & Rhinestone Stage or, perhaps head to the Johnny Cash Museum. In addition, backstage tours are available of the Ryman Auditorium or, you may like to try and catch a performance at the Grand Ole Opry.
If you prefer to hear the stars of tomorrow, try out some of the small, intimate clubs dotted all over Nashville, such as the famous Bluebird Café in Green Hills, The Listening Room Café in downtown; or the many bars and clubs along the Honky Tonk Highway.
