Nashville is loaded with tons of historical buildings which drip with awesome architecture details everywhere you look...
Here is the famous Ryman Auditorium. For those of you who don't know, the Ryman was the former home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974. It is still used today as a forum for some of the best music and live performances you could ever hope to experience. Every time I attend a concert here, it never fails to exceed expectations of greatness. The Ryman is also referred to as the Mother Church of Country Music because of its intertwining history of starting out as a church in 1885, moved to being the Union Gospel Tabernacle and throughout our history, finally landed upon present day Performance Hall.
( I was not on the front side to capture the more appealing side, but it is still the Ryman)
Tootsies Orchid Lounge and the Bluegrass Inn are only a couple of the more historical must see and hear joints downtown. Long history of The Most Famous Old Country Stars got their starts here. Along with this next place, Roberts. Roberts is very interesting as it started out and continues to this day as a shop for boots! Take a look,
Now and as in the past number of years, Roberts has evolved into being a Honky Tonk Grill with live music. Some of the best of the best have been on this tiny stage... and it's open to the public nightly for free. I have seen a lot of stars pass over this stage and watch their music careers take off from here, wow!
Let's drop in for a quick spin at the Legends Corner to see their take on the music world.
