Unlike any city in the world, music is deeply rooted in the heart and soul of Nashville. The city’s earliest settlers arrived with little more than instruments in their hands and a song in their heart. Perhaps you’ve heard the names: Dolly Parton, Steve Earle, Willie Nelson, Zac Brown, Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Cash. They followed a dream and together, they paved the way for the dreamers that followed. From the early days of the 20th century with its fiddles and banjos to the flash and pomp of the 1960s and 70s glory days, to today’s polished pop country and rootsy, underground sounds, Nashville keeps turning out the hits and proving it deserves to be called Music City.
Whether you’re looking to cut a rug listening to some cracklin’ good rockabilly or finding just the right armadillo boots to give your dad for his birthday, these great spots have received our stamp of approval.
