127. Walkin’ Nashville


One of Nashville’s newest tour companies is Walkin’ Nashville. It is, yes, a walking tour. Whether you live here or are visiting here, you’ll learn something new about Nashville’s music history. The tour starts at the Chet Atkins statue at 5th & Union in front of Bank of America Plaza downtown. It ends at Hatch Show Print. And in between? You’ll see Printer’s Alley, the Ryman, Tootsie’s, and Ernest Tubb Record Shop. But you’ll also hear about Castle Recording Studio, Skull’s Rainbow Room, The Maxwell House Hotel, Ernie’s Record Mart, and Sho-Bud Steel Guitar Company. The guide is Grammy-nominated music journalist/author/songwriter/Nashville resident Bill DeMain. He’s been here and in the music industry for awhile, so he has knowledge to share. Tours are 90 minutes long and start at 10:30am Tuesday-Friday. Walk, learn and listen.

    This walking tour in downtown Nashville with Bill DeMain is absolutely on the “must do” list for out of town visitors (as well as the locals!). I learned so much about Nashville and music business history that I didn’t know and I have lived in Nashville over 30 years. It was fabulous. Nicely paced. Bill is a delightful guide and you will hear many interesting facts and stories that you will not get on your typical Nashville tour. You will be pleased!!

    The Walkin’ Nashville tour is really interesting, informative and entertaining. We had a great time and learned a lot! We had no idea how varied Nashville’s musical history is. This is a Must-Do outing for history and music lovers of all ages. Enjoy Walkin’!
