Our next destination was Nashville, TN. As a big country music fan, I needed to go to Nashville. Scott had made plans to visit a high school friend who lives in Mississippi. When I first put the address in my iPhone to find a route, it took us right through Nashville. That's when I knew we had to go! I seriously loved Nashville so much, that I'm going to have to break this post up into a few segments. I don't want to overwhelm you with all of my love! :)
|Unfortunately, a couple of accidents along the Interstate caused traffic to be at a stop just outside the city. On the bright side, this gave me the chance to snap a picture of the sky line!|
The first thing on our agenda was a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. We purchased the Platinum package which allowed us access to the museum, the audio tour, and a tour of historic Studio B. Our Studio B tour was scheduled for 2:30, and we coasted in around 1:30. We briefly browsed the museum, and then met our group for the tour.
The Studio B tour was seriously my most favorite part of the day....and our whole stay in Nashville.
|And yes, the blonde with the big hair is Miss Dolly Parton!|
I got to stand in the exact spot where he (and many others) recorded songs, and I got to sit at what was Elvis' favorite piano. He even wanted to buy that piano, and the studio told him no!
I could just go on and on about how amazing this was, but I will just leave you with the two Elvis' songs I shared about. Stay tuned for more about the Country Music Hall of Fame!
