Named Billboard's top Hot 100 artist of 2010, electro-pop sensation Ke$ha electrifies fans with catchy tunes, punchy lyrics, and a larger-than-life persona. With a list of chart-topping hits that includes "TiK ToK," "We R Who We R," and "Your Love is My Drug," Ke$ha charms even the most curmudgeonly, highbrow ears with irreverent, catchy lyrics and taut, shimmering beats that get stuck in listeners' heads like peanut-butter-covered dreams. Presided over by a quirkily becostumed Ke$ha, the Get $leazy tour sucks fans into a nonstop, glitter-filled night of dancing, performance, and languor-shattering electronic rapture. LMFAO, the tuneful twosome behind the high-energy hit "Party Rock Anthem," and electro-rapper Spank Rock complement Ke$ha's sonic spectacle with their own dulcet melodies. With today's deal, concertgoers can soak up the music and Charleston themselves into a state of euphoria in the front-of-stage general-admission area of the Nashville Municipal Auditorium.

Authenticity is the focus at this Middle Eastern restaurant, which was named Best Persian Food in Nashville Scene's Best of Nashville 2011. Owner and Iraq native Hikmat Gazi adorns the space with traditional decor, from the deep-red color of the walls to glass boxes displaying traditional Kurdish clothing. Diners looking for the full experience can sit on a cushion on the floor and dine on a traditional, low table. Then, of course, there is the food itself, from the titular shish kabob to lamb shanks seared and flavored with regional-specialty spices.
Nashville Scene also chronicles Hikmat’s absorbing journey from an adolescence spent in a Turkish refugee camp during the Gulf War to his triplicate success in the restaurant business. After working with the U.S. military in Iraq, Hikmat returned stateside to continue serving savory Middle Eastern fare at the original Nolensville Rd. location, and has recently opened a new downtown location.
Founded as the Union Gospel Tabernacle by steamboat captain Thomas Ryman after an angel got trapped in his smokestack, the Ryman Auditorium has since become a different kind of hallowed ground, lovingly referred to as the "mother church of country music." The Grand Ole Opry and The Johnny Cash Show have both taken residence among its wooden pews, and the twanged voices of country legends such as Hank Williams and Patsy Cline have reverberated off the stenciled artwork on the face of the balcony. Today, the venue plays host to a variety of acts, from rock concerts to television specials to comedy shows.

Corsair Artisan fills glasses across the country with award-winning spirits that are internationally recognized for both their complexity and flavor. Similar to modern microbreweries, the company's two distilleries—one in Nashville, the other in Bowling Green—produce small-volume batches of high-quality products, including gin, absinthe, and seasonal spirits such as pumpkin-spiced moonshine. To maintain the utmost control over its flavors, Corsair Artisan painstakingly crafts its selection using hand-operated stills, which, unlike major producers, enables the company to experiment with ingredients and personally deliver thank-you cards to each bubble that pops up during the production process.
Being branded “Roseanne Barr meets Jack Black” might be considered a slight to some, but Hick Chick Tours’ guide Christy Eidson wears it as a badge of honor. The standup comedienne keeps her pub crawls, brewery tours, and bus tours light and irreverent with tongue-in-cheek asides. But since she’s a Tennessee native, there’s are also plenty of interesting historical information woven into her sassy narratives.
