From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. It has become a creative melting pot seamlessly stirring together country, rock, bluegrass, jazz and more. Music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city with its people. It is home to several historic venues including the Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry, and currently boasts over 180 recording studios. With a love for music so tangibly engrained into the city’s culture, visitors are never far from a honkey-tonk, live music, or the next big act to hit the music scene.

The legacy of Nashville also encompasses world-class art, award winning cuisine, unique shops and boutiques, and a wide range of outdoor activities for an unrivaled experience boasted in sweet southern soul. While in town, be sure to pick up some world-famous Nashville Hot Chicken, catch a live show on Broadway, and take a look inside any of Nashville’s historical attractions. There’s always something to do in Music City.
