We start our journey in Nashville visiting the Country Music Museum (Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum).

It is a museum dedicated entirely to this type of music, of which Nashville is one of the pioneer cities and currently one of its central nuclei.

Very complete, very well designed and with a lot of information, after visiting it and hear itBecause a museum dedicated to music should make it easier for us to listen to it, you come out with a deeper understanding of the importance of this music, both in Nashville and throughout the United States.

Then we took a long walk through the center (downtown) of the city, specifically, by Broadway Avenue, visiting outside the Tennessee State Capitol Building, building that houses the Parliament of the state.

On the banks of Cumberland River we have seen a historic steamboat that reminded us of Tom Sawyer.

We also saw the stadium of the Titans of American football, and we went to visit the Tennessee State Military Museum (free admission), as well as in the museum dedicated to local singer Charlie Daniels, which was located at the bottom of a music store.

As a great representative of country music, Nashville It has many places where live music is played all day, from morning until dawn. Most of them you find around the street Broadway with the 2nd Avenue.

A lot of country music, a lot of cowboy boots, a lot of Hank Williams (great driver and creator of this music back in the first half of the 20th century), Dolly Parton, etc ...

The places where musicians perform are pub bars where they serve fast food, such as sandwiches, hamburgers or chicken at reasonable prices. A beer costs $ 4 and is enough for you to sit and listen to the groups that act.

To also highlight the great quality of the musicians, who interpret both country music, rock or country / rock.

In several of these bars people dance between the tables, and sometimes there are girls together from the public who dance following country steps and choreographies, which adds a new attraction to the music itself.
