I took a few days off last week to get some things done but we took a couple days for a quick trip to Nashville. I had only been there once for just a few hours when I took my daughter on a college visit to Vanderbilt and Mike had never been there.
So we took off early Friday with no real plan in mind. That is really not like me, I usually have a plan and know what we are going to do and when. We decided to take a look at the Jim Beam distillery on our way since it was less than two miles from the interstate and we both needed a pit stop. 😮
So once I did a little Christmas shopping in the gift shop we were on our way to Music City!
Again we had no real plan in mind. We aren’t real museum people so we didn’t pay for the tours at the Ryman or the Country Music Hall of Fame (maybe next time). So we went to Broadway to scope it out and had lunch at Jacks Bar-B-Que. I highly recommend the Brisket…Yum Yum!
After lunch we went to The Stage and set out on the balcony and listened the band. It was a gorgeous fall day and perfect for listening to good music and taking in the sights.
We then went to check into our hotel and change to get ready for round two! Our hotel as only a few blocks from the heart of the ‘strip’ so we walked back downtown.
I thought for sure we would run into Eric Church, Blake Shelton or Jason Aldean while we were there….no such luck😏
It seems like a lot of the bars have multiple rooms and balconies all with a band playing.
We went to several places that evening. We would walk down the sidewalk and if we heard something we liked we would go in and have a drink and listen for a while then move on. We ended up going to the Stage, Tootsies, Tin Roof, Tequila Cowboy and Full Moon Saloon. We had a great time and look forward to going back! 🎸🎤🎻.
