The Music City, is obviously all about the music but it is also full of impressive largely Victorian classical and neo-classical buildings which has given Nashville the nickname of “Athens of the South.” Nashville has a good food scene with many restaurants and bars having live entertainment highlighting both up and coming musicians and old favourites.
So many stars have appeared in Nashville that it would be pointless to list them. It is probably quicker to list who had not been there. It is enormous fun going around the studios to see where some classic recordings have taken place and where music is still being made.

Why should I visit Nashville?
Tours of RCA Studio B where so many of the greats have recorded including Roy Orbison, Elvis and Dolly Parton depart from the Country Music Hall of Fame. You will be amazed at how basic some of the early recording consoles were and equally how hi-tech they have become.
Tour the Ryman auditorium originally built as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in 1892 but now known as the “Mother Church of Country Music”. All of the greats have and continue to play here. You can also visit the Hatch Show Prints gallery which has hand printed posters from the early days to contemporary artists such as Coldplay and Taylor Swift.
TIP - Be sure to be there on a Friday or Saturday night if you want to catch the show at the Grand Ole Opry.
The Johnny Cash Museum: whatever you need to know about Johnny Cash is here and really well presented.
Frontier America can provide one of the three available packages to view the Hall of Fame, Studio B and Hatch Show Prints. We can also get tickets for the CMA Theatre, Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Theatre live shows.
The Musicians Hall of Fame celebrates the backing groups behind the success stories. Some, like Jimi Hendrix, went on to be a star in their own right. Many others remain largely unknown. There are plenty of fun interactive possibilities such as drumming, mixing, singing etc.
Belle Meade Plantation - Dating back to 1845, this fascinating Greek-Revival plantation home is not only a beautiful house but where many famous American racehorses were bred with their progeny still winning races today.
TIP - Buy a Passport to Music which gives discounted entry to most of the key venues from Frontier America.
October is a great time to visit Nashville as the weather is very pleasant. Another reason is Artober Nashville, a month-long celebrations of the arts and one of the largest celebrations of the arts and culture in the South. Expect to see performing arts, theatre, music, dance and film to mention just some of the attractions.
Get Frontier America to organise a private tour of MusicCity accompanied by a working singer / songwriter. Nashville is a song writer’s town but not all of them make their fortune so need to make a little extra cash. You can help them and at the same time get a unique insight into their craft and lifestyle.
