Whether or not it’s because of the popular TV series Nashville, the city is receiving lots of media attention these days. A couple of weeks ago, an article in the New York Times called it one of the most up and coming cities in the country which is possibly good and bad news for the folks already calling Nashville home.
What I like best about Nashville is it’s home to GooGoo Clusters, a candy treat favorite since childhood. Now you know where my priorities lie!Most of all Nashville is known as Music City thanks to its roots in country music.
The Grand Ole Opry is the most famous venue for country music, but my favorite place to go is the Bluebird Cafe, barely noticeable in a nondescript strip center. Somehow though folks know about it, and crowds start lining up well in advance of evening performances.
Entertainment is provided by some combination of songwriters and vocalists, and any time you go will be a treat. The walls are filled with photos of well known faces who’ve gotten a start at the Bluebird.While the Bluebird is not a place where you see lots of children, it is OK to take them. I was there with my daughter’s family, and the girls loved it though they closed their ears a couple of times to what they thought was too adult language.
No matter what you do in Nashville, take time to explore the surrounding area that is defined by sprawling horse farms, four board fencing and old rock walls. It is a beautiful area, and there are many reasons why it would be a most pleasant place to live.
