...with the city of Nashville! Such a cool relaxed vibe here that is really infectious. The downtown area that offers a plethora of dining, entertainment and sports, and a lots of country music is all within walking distances to earn your fill. However, the Grand Ole Opry is about 12 miles out of the downtown area but still quite simple to find and enjoy.
Our day was packed and fun-filled starting with the Country Music Hall of Fame. Lots of cool items, facts and tidbits of the legends dating back 100 years to the superstars of today. I especially liked the gold and platinum records that graced the walls in the large halls, and the rotunda filled with plaques designating the Hall of Famers (performers) that have been invited to join the prestigious organization. It's a must do while in Nashville!
Son Ryan, ever the BBQ loving and finder of BBQ joints, did not fail us and directed us to Martin's BBQ Joint; that makes the South, and Tennessee particularly, a foodie legend. Yummy!
We then took a break from the music scene to cheer on the Washington Capitals at the Bridgestone Arena. Unfortunately, they lost 5-2 to the Nashville Predators, but it was fun touring around as a first time visitor to this arena. And as soon as the game ended, we zipped out quickly to get to our final destination/venue tonight: The Grand Ole Opry. We loved all the performers tonight, but especially CeCe Winans and Vince Gill! What talent! What a place! And the longest running radio broadcast since 1925....Great Show!
