The Nashville Scene in Vibrant and Alive, No Matter What MusicSinging along in Nashville is not normally discouraged! In fact, for music fans, it's one of the best reasons to visit Music City, and there are any number of music venues for enthusiastic fans to sing along, clap hands, dance or simply enjoy the beat. To its credit, the city also embraces more than country music, so if classic sonatas or opera are more your style, they're readily available.

While a visitor to Music City can find live music being performed in bars and restaurants, on street corners and parks, and in smaller clubs throughout the city, it's the concert halls and big stages that attract visitors in record numbers to experience the thrill of top-name performers and the latest hits.
