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!
1. Robert’s Hillbilly Bar
2. GooGoo candy
3. Bourbon St. Blues Club
4. Printer’s Alley
6.Best band quote; “We play adult music, not children’s music about sexy tractors and drunken pontoon rides where the kids are gettin’ sideways!”
7. Live music every 5 feet
8. Chocolate walnut pie and a cucumber infused saki bloody mary
9. REAL Southern hospitality
10. Sightseeing, eating and drinking w/ old friends & new!
