Memories of Music City

Bourbon Blues Xmas

Travel has always been a big inspiration to me, especially as an artist, so I try to save my funds to take at least one trip per year.  This year it was Nashville, TN aka Music City!  I love music so I’ve been to many of the major live music scenes throughout the US and this November it was Nashville’s turn for a visit!  The people there are so friendly!  The food (& booze) is awesome….had some of the best comfort food ever!  Loved the bright, big neon signs down Lower Broadway and the artsy community in East Nashville.   It’s also a very affordable city as most clubs and bars don’t charge a cover fee and there are bands playing almost round the clock.  I also enjoyed the museums and historic sites like the Johnny Cash Museum. the Nashville Museum, Ryman Auditorium, original home of the Grand Ole Opry, just to name a few.  All in all, Music City kicks ass…here’s my top 10 list with some accompanying photos I took during my trip!  Yee Ha!
