Summer Vacation: Nashville Part 3

Clearly, you all know by now that I got the chance to visit Nashville.  My first experience in Nashville on the historical Studio B tour.  Then I got to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Today, let's talk Broadway!

Yes, Nashville has a street called Broadway, too.  We spent a good bit of our time there stopping in different places for food and drinks, to buy souvenirs, to hear live entertainment, and, of course, for me to sing karaoke!

Our first stop on Broadway was a place called Tootsie's (the purple building).  There were three different floors, and because it was quite early in the afternoon, it was pretty much deserted.  Empty or not, it was still a pretty cool place, so we had a drink and listed to a little live music.

  Then we had a super yummy lunch at Rippy's BBQ.  Scott and I chose to eat up on the second floor.  We ordered their sampler, which is supposed to be an appetizer.  I'm pretty sure, though, that if you made the mistake of ordering anything else to eat on top of that, you'd be taking A LOT of food home.  The sampler had ribs, wings, onion rings, pork chops, and sausage.  It was a feast, and I can promise you that neither of us left there feeling hungry!  There was also live music.

Later that evening, we went to one of the karaoke bars on Broadway.  The windows behind the stage are open to the street.  Every now and then a passerby would poke a head in to listen.  This picture is me singing "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood.  Unfortunately, not long after I sang, I wasn't feeling very well.  So we called it a night, but we did head back out the next day.

This band was playing at a place called The Stage.  I wish I could remember the name of this band because this girl was AMAZING.  I could've stayed to listen to her all day, but we had to go put more money in our parking meter.  Haha.  We also had to head out for our ghost tour, which I will tell you more about tomorrow!

After the ghost tour, we hit up another karaoke bar on Broadway.  I really enjoyed this one.  It was on the second floor of a building, and they had a camera that projected performances to a TV down on the street level.

This place was also deserted when we got there.  I probably sang 4 or 5 songs before anyone else even showed up!  After things got busy, I still got to sing a lot.  So I was pretty much in heaven.  :)  In this picture, I'm singing "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood.

I hope you are enjoying my vacation posts!  Coming up: Ghost Tour, Grand Ole Opry, Mississippi, New Orleans.

Looks like a ton of fun! We only stopped in Nashville for a couple hours so we really only saw Grand Ole Opry and the mall next to it! Wish we had had time to do some of the things you guys did!

So cool! Looks like you had a blast.. sorry you didn't feel well at one point, that happened to me in CA too and it stinks to get sick on vacation. : (

Believe it or not, I've never done karaoke, but always wanted! You look very comfortable up there! : )
