Beautiful tree lined streets lined with homes with wrap around porches that have been turned into recording studios for the famous songwriters. They look very casual and unassuming. One would never know that Garth Brooks or Dolly Parton record in these places. No flashy/neon sights....More

Drove around this park several times. It looked like a nice place to take a walk. We did not have time but it did make a nice view. You can tell this city likes their parks.

As you're walking around the end of Demonbreun St., near Buddy Killen Circle, you'll notice a couple of sculptures that are placed to commemorate a variety of musical events or artists. The sculpture with seven human figures is in the center of Buddy Killen Circle....More

I was so excited to see where the recording studios are esp. RCA. It was neat to envision the artists writing and recording there. I really liked that most of them were old restored homes. Kept thinking of Bobby Bare's "Sure Hit Songwriter's Pen" song!!

We visited Music Row on a weekend, which we was told by JOSH our Tour Guide from JOYRIDES Golf Cart Tours that during the week is a better chance to see the stars. Still extremely interesting for those that love country music.

Another must do. Excellent historical nuggets are every where in this area including the (in its day controversial) nude traffic island.

My wife and I walked from one end of Music Row to the other on Music Square East and Music Square West. There are some quaint houses and other buildings, and a lot of music-industry businesses (recording studios, publishing houses, agencies, etc.). Many of these...More

I have never done a walking tour, but I have walked the whole town, on an Urban Hike. There is an "on and off" bus tour that would be good. Nashville runs green and blue circuit busses all around downtown Nashville and The... More
