Our first stop in the USA was one of my favourite cities, Nashville also known as Music City. This is the place to visit if you love music, yes a lot of it is country music but you can also find Blues, Bluegrass, Rock n Roll and more. The Honky Tonks on Boardway have around 40 live bands playing each day from 10.30am till 3am the following the day, you could be watching the next big thing.
Away from the downtown area there plenty of other attractions such as the Bluebird Cafe which hosts twice nightly intimate shows by some of Nashville’s new and established singer songwriters. We were lucky enough to attend the show, In The Round with Erik Dylan, Kristen Kelly, Jimmy Stanley and Danny Myrick. We loved Erik’s new single Pink Flamingos and we got to meet him after the show.
We spent one day visiting Loveless Cafe which offers great value typical Southern food, famous for its biscuits and the Belle Meade Plantation and stables founded in 1807, it was one of the largest thoroughbred horse farms in the South covering 5400 acres where 13 of the last Kentucky Derby winners can be traced back to.
Along with the Country Music Hall of Fame, historic RCA studio B and the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville is a must on any music lovers bucket list. We will be back in June for the 4 day CMA Festival, very excited!!
