Nashville TN - arrived yesterday Thursday

We arrived in Nashville TN yesterday afternoon. We left Memphis around 10:30am...alot of traffic coming down..but had a pretty good run. After an early supper here we hopped in the car and went downtown Nashville....there are clubs and sidewalk bars all up and down the street, with country bands in them all~they work free hoping to be discovered and wow are they good bands...all I can say is WOW...the opry is closed due to flooding but all shows are being held at the Ryman Auditorium so we plan to attend there today. Brad Paisley is one of the features!!...Here are some pictures...hey "Jim H" wish you were here with us buddy...

On the strip
Ernest Tubb's shop-where all the opry singers gathered after the opry for a midnight singing session-Loretta Lynn was the host for many years.

This band was out of this world-they sang everything-George Jones, Alan Jackson etc just to name a couple

The strip at night

This big guitar was on a corner of the street with all the 'greats' pictured on it...

It is quite the happening place. Well worth the visit...we are heading back there today....have a super Friday yall....
