Nashville is known as Music City for good reason. Everywhere you go, you’ll find live music being played 24/7, 365 days a year. There are over 180 live music venues in the city, a fact which alone should serve as a testament to Nashville’s rich tradition of making music. Here at Serra Chevrolet Buick GMC of Nashville, we have selected a few “must-see” places to visit where you can delve deeper into the heritage of Music City.

  • Grand Ole Opry House: In 1925, local radio station WSM began to broadcast the Grand Ole Opry, and this live radio show is still going strong today. Showcasing famous musicians and popular contemporary performers, the Opry offers a mix of country, bluegrass, folk, and gospel music, along with comedy sketches. Known as the “Home of American Music” and “Country’s Most Famous Stage”, the Grand Ole Opry has hosted legends such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and Bill Monroe, to name but a few. For anyone interested in Nashville’s musical heritage, the Grand Ole Opry House has to be at the top of your list.
  • Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum: Explore decades of country music history in this 40,000 square foot museum. Exhibits include every gold and platinum record on the country music chart, along with memorabilia, rare recordings, and special displays honoring the trailblazers and legends in the Country Hall of Fame.
  • Johnny Cash Museum: Located in downtown Nashville, the Johnny Cash Museum is dedicated to the life and music of the legendary “Man in Black”. The museum features interactive exhibits, a comprehensive collection of memorabilia, a gift shop, a cafe, and a 250-seat auditorium. The Johnny Cash Museum has been ranked as the #1 music museum on the world by Condé Nast, Forbes, and National Geographic Traveler.

Honky-Tonk Highway

No visit to Nashville is complete without a trip down the Honky-Tonk Highway. Starting at Legends Corner, at Fifth and Broadway, the Honky-Tonk Highway is a stretch of clubs and bars that are as well known for their unique character as for the music playing there nonstop. Make a point of visiting Tootsies Orchid Lounge, one of the most famous honky-tonks in Nashville. Other places to visit along the “highway” include Robert’s Western World, Layla’s Bluegrass Inn, and Whiskey Bent Saloon.
