Things To Do In Nashville For Music Lovers

If you love music, Nashville, Tennessee is one of the best cities to visit. Whether you are a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, or a little bit of any other musical genre all mashed up together, Nashville will have what you are looking for. From the time you step off the plane and are met with live music in the airport, you will realize that you have truly come to Music City.

Nashville is synonymous with country music and here you will find the Country Music Hall of Fame. This architectural masterpiece houses exhibitions of the world’s best country music performers. Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and Waylon Jennings are just a few of the artists you will see displayed.

Once you leave the Hall of Fame you are just a short walk – or quaint carriage ride – away from iconic Music Row. This section of downtown Nashville is home to hundreds of businesses in the music industry, including recording studios, publishing houses, and management offices. Stop and tour RCA Studio B, where Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins, and Elvis Presley all recorded.

If you are looking to sample the blues, rock, or even some folk singers, head on down to 2nd Avenue. In this historic section of the city lie BB Kings, The Hard Rock Cafe, and several other bars and restaurants that feature live entertainment nightly. On the way there you can stop by the original Ernest Tubb Record Shop, the birthplace of country music and home to thousands of records from all genres.

As you stroll along the streets of downtown Nashville you will hear music coming from almost every building. You can stop in and listen for a few minutes, or stay for longer if you desire. If you go on a weekend, you will also find several street performers. The talent of these humble musicians will astound you, and you will find that the roads are lined with music.

Once you are ready to leave the downtown area, simply head ten miles away to Opryland Drive. Here sits the famed Grand Ole Opry. Come and take a tour, watch a concert, and learn the history of the stage that launched countless artists into the spotlight.

Once you’re done with your music city tour, relax in a Nashville vacation rental. Playlist Properties has several rentals in downtown Nashville and a short walk from your favorite music city landmark.

No matter how much time you spend in Nashville, it will not take you long to understand why so many aspiring musicians flock to this beautiful southern city.
