Nashville Guide

The second you arrive at Nashville’s airport, music is in the air. Live bands play around the clock in Concourse C’s bars and restaurants, embodying the spirit of this undisputed capital of country music. Artists such as Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton hit it big here, and new generations of musicians still arrive ready to do the same.

Music City, USA

  • Grand Ole Opry: Hank Williams, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Rascal Flatts, and the Dixie Chicks have performed at this weekly country music stage concert, which has been called the “home of American music.”
  • The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum: Housed in a building designed to look like piano keys, this museum documents the past and present of country music in photos, film, and costumes. Check out everything from Les Paul's 1941 experimental "log" electric guitar to a gown Taylor Swift wore to the Grammys.
  • Music Row: The city’s heart, southwest of downtown; home to recording studios, record labels, stores, and bars. It’s also a good place to shop for cowboy boots.

Hearty Food with a Southern Flavor

  • Hot chicken is Nashville’s most famous dish, a heavily spiced fried chicken that can range anywhere from “mildly tingly” to “burn-your-mouth-out” hot. It’s served on white bread alongside pickle chips. If you think you can take the heat, give it a try at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack.
  • Biscuits: Hit up Loveless Cafe on a weekend to try their famously fluffy, buttery biscuits, but be ready for a line—locals are almost as serious about their biscuits as they are about their hot chicken.
  • ”Meat and three” restaurants: Pick one type of meat and three side dishes; nobody does this better than Arnold’s Country Kitchen, one of the most beloved meat and threes in the city.

Where to Stay

  • To be next to the Grand Ole Opry: Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center has a 27,000-square foot spa and a 9-acre botanical garden complete with a four-story waterfall.
  • To live like the stars: For more than 100 years, presidents and movie stars passing through town have stayed at the Hermitage Hotel. It has hosted John F. Kennedy, Bette Davis, and Al Capone; the lower level of the hotel plays host to the famous Capitol Grille.
  • For Southern charm near Music Row Linden Manor Bed and Breakfast features a wrap-around porch, 12-foot ceilings, and lavish breakfasts such as stuffed French toast and sherried creamed eggs.
