Larry Olmsted wrote a piece about Nashville today for Forbes. It’s titled “Great Urban Weekend Escapes: Nashville, TN” and it talks about all the great things to do in Nashville over a weekend. And why it makes the perfect weekend getaway. He starts the article by saying this:
“Today we visit Music City, home to some excellent Southern cuisine, surprisingly great hotels and of course, music, music, music. For reasons I will elaborate on, Nashville is an absolutely perfect pick for a weekend getaway.”
music, music, music. Yep. That’s us.
The article goes on to the mention the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, saying
“A visit to the museum is a reminder how much more connection most music lovers have to country than they know.”
The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is highlighted, along with the Music City Walk of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, our pro sports teams, delectable culinary scene, and fabulous hotel options.
But the most standout part to us is this:
“What makes Nashville and its Honky Tonks really unique and different from New Orleans’ French Quarter, Beale Street in Memphis, or Austin, the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the Country,” is that in Nashville they go all day long.”
We do. We go all day long. And we go all night long. All the time. Beat that, New Orleans, Memphis, and Austin!
