If you’re looking for a heel-kicking night out in Nashville, Tennessee, look no further than downtown and its famed country music attractions. Just remember that Nashvillians are a pretty casual bunch, so don’t go getting all glammed up. Instead, throw on a t-shirt and a pair of jeans and get ready to party hard!
Grand Ole Opry
Nashville’s number one country music attraction, the Grand Ole Opry has been a regular fixture on the airwaves since the 1920’s, but nothing compares to the experience of seeing the show live.
Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum
Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to explore what is the single biggest collection of country music memorabilia in the world – nowhere else will you find such an honorific to the USA’s finest country stars, with key attractions like Webb Peirce’s silver dollar studded Cadillac and his guitar-shaped pool.
There’s no better place to get into the spirit than what is considered to be the mother lode of country music – the Ryman Auditorium. This was the place where, back in the ‘50s, you could meet stars such as Ernest Tubb and Johnny Wright as they chilled out and told stories of life on the road whilst awaiting their chance to strut their stuff at the Grand Ole Opry and wow those crowds.
If you want a taste of what Nashville entertainment is really all about, you’ll want to step inside the Wildhorse Saloon, a 66,000 sq. ft. hive of dancing, drinks and dinner in front of some of the country’s very best live acts.
Historic Printers Alley
As the name suggests, this really is just an alley, but it’s one with a crucial difference, as it was the original home of Nashville’s famed printing companies. These days, all the printers have long since gone, replaced by a number of top country music clubs like the Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar, Ms. Kelli’s, Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar and Club Caliente to name just a few.
