The Story

In 2010, our friend Andrew Terrell ( started this blog in an attempt to learn more about and then share all the amazing things Nashville has to offer. The task became difficult to do alone and in May of 2010, he asked that we help him out.

365-music-logoWe offered 365 Things to Do in Nashvilletwice. For the third year, we decided to change it up a bit and do 365 Days of Music. In the fourth year, we went back to 365 Things to Do. And in our 5th year, we venture into Nashville’s amazing culinary culture. Now, into our 6th year we bring you 365 Days of Music City. Over the course of 365 days we will tell you things to explore, eat, do, listen, play, see, and 365mealslogoexperience in order to show you authentic Nashville. We will highlight events that are coming up in order to provide you with where to be, and what to do in Music City. Restaurants, art galleries, concerts, and festivals will be our playgrounds and written about for your enjoyment. Which leads to our promise – to ensure that each post, everyday, will give you the real Nashville. All you have to do is experience it for yourself. Cool?


Please enjoy and feel free to contact us at with any suggestions, comments or questions. Thanks!

    One place that seems to get missed quite often (unless you are in 4th grade studying Tennessee history) is the State Museum in the Polk building downtown. Free admission and great exhibits detailing Tennessee’s incredible history.

    I’m curious if you have a full list somewhere that you’re going by or you just plan on posting things that are typical for the day.

    My fiance and I are spending our anniversary in Nashville and it would be nice to know some things we can do on those days.

    You have a great idea here.

  3. Andrew, Don’t forget about us at Robert’s Western World. Every Friday Saturday nights PBR and Fried Balogna sandwiches – Brazilbilly playing…buying boots off the wall – good ol’ traditional country music in a legendary Nashville Honky Tonk! Sunday morning gospel music and spaghetti westerneers at 2:30pm. Check out our new website for more info. – We also have a new Honky Tonk Chauffeurs service – a personalized Nashville tour! Great job on the success of your 365 site!

  4. Love the 365 idea! Just wanted to give you a heads up that the 41st Nashville Film Festival will be April 15-22. 2010 at the Green Hills Regal Cinema. Not only will there be tons of films, but it’s also great for speakers, panels, parties, red carpet arrivals, and celebrity sightings!

    Great idea! I’m a local and still am amazed by all the stuff out there to do that I’m just finding out about. I love being a tourist in my own town. Thanks for doing this!

    Check out Bad Karma, one of nation’s #1 airsoft fields. More specifically, Noob Day is coming up on March 20. There will be vendors on site with available gun rentals such as Nashville Airsoft (assuming I’m understanding this right). You may need to make your rental reservation ahead of time, though. There’s a ton of info on their website and message boards. Definitely worth a look!

  8. What about horseback riding in Nashville? A Cowboy Town ( offers horseback riding all year, in addition to other fun activities!

  9. The Commodore Grille , 42 year old music venue located in the Holiday Inn West End Ave. Nashville . Never a cover and always a room full of Nashville songwriters and artist. This place has been a music tradition in tow for a long time. Located across from the Parthenon. Shows start at 7pm nightly. till midnight. from steaks to seafood, full menu and great prices.

  12. I recently came across your website and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my very first comment. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this site very frequently.

  13. Aaron says:

    I love the idea of this site and have been checking it daily for the past 3-4 months. I live about an hour away from Nashville and visit about once a week or so and always make sure to check the site before I go for suggestions on where to eat lunch or dinner. You’ve helped me find some of my favorite places in Nashville.

    What happens once you get to 365?

      Hey Aaron,

      I’m so happy you have enjoyed this site! It’s been a lot of fun exploring the city where I grew up in a new light. As for your question, it’s a good one! I guess it depends on a variety of factors like if the readership is still interested in the site. So, I guess we’ll have to see!

      1. Aaron says:

        Ah, new question… I noticed it the first time I saw the site, but does the little smiley face in the top right corner mean anything or was it done just for fun? or did you know it was there?

      2. aschepman says:

        Hey Aaron,

        I have noticed the little smiley face. I think it’s just apart of the blog background when we chose it. Not really sure how to get rid of it!

  14. Kelly says:

    as one of the many transplants to Nashville, I love this site. I especially appreciate free or low cost activities, and would suggest adding a day dedicated to disc (frisbee) golf. My husband and I started doing it after getting tired of paying greens fees. Its lots of fun, and the crowd is much more diverse than I ever would have thought!

  15. I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will probably be very useful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wishing you all of the success.

  16. Hey I am check out your website good stuff. What restaurant have great food and a romantic atmosphere? My husband is coming home on R&R for his 4th deployment tour this fall. We are wanting to stay a night and a day there when he gets off the plane. When we have gone to Nashville we’ve have had our children. So I am not sure what to do with just the two of us. I was wondering if you have any great suggestions ?
    Thanks so much.

  17. Hi! 🙂 Is it OK if I ask something kinda off topic? I’m trying to view this page on my new iPad but it won’t show up properly, do you have any solutions? Should I try and find an update for my software or something? Thanks in advance! Jennine x 🙂

  18. Hi i am so pleased I found your blog, I really found you by mistake, while I was searching Yahoo for something else, At Any Rate I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a wonderful blog posting and a all round intriguing blog (I also love the theme/design), I do not have time to read it all at the right now but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds.

  19. Congratulations on having one of the most sophisticated blogs Ive come across in some time! Its just incredible how much you can take away from something simply because of how visually beautiful it is. Youve put together a great blog space –great graphics, videos, layout. This is definitely a must-see blog!

  20. i was reading throught some of the posts and i identify them to be plumb interesting. pathetic my english is not exaclty the bloody best. would there be anyway to transalte this into my argot, spanish. it would genuinely usurp me a lot. since i could approach the english terminology to the spanish language.

  21. What a GREAT idea and VERY, VERY smart for you from a marketing standpoint. Just recommended your site to someone coming from Arizona who contacted a site I moderate–asking Nashville questions. See your FB ad and lots of likes. So finally checked it out. Good 4 you! (FYI, I have an Arts Fridays feature on my blog that often features arts events.)

  22. This is definitely very good. We are laying here in our hotel room in Killarney looking through a majority of these responses. Many are great and a few really don’t try to make a lot logic the least bit. I am on vacation yet unfortunately I just wasn’t able to help myself from having a look around this web site inspite of my hotel room here in Killarney bills net consumption on an hourly in killarney ontario canada,luxury hotels in killarney ireland

  23. I dont know what to say. This blog is fantastic. Thats not really a really huge statement, but its all I could come up with after reading this. You know so much about this subject. So much so that you made me want to learn more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject.

  24. Thank you so much for putting all those needed information’s in one interesting post. I bet that you spend much time writing all this. Thank you for great post and for sharing your knowledge with us!

  25. Nashvillian Since 1959 says:

    You have done an amazing job of compiling the list of 365 Things To Do In Nashville. Once you have reached 365 how about going back and replacing the one-time events with recurring activities and publishing a book? I have seen 365’s for other cities and your list has by far set the standard!

  26. kinda appreciated the post that you posted . it just isn’t that simple to discover even remotely good text to read (you know.. really READ and not simply browsing through it like a zombie before moving on), so cheers man for not wasting any of my time! 😉

  27. I as well as my pals have been going through the great items on the website then all of the sudden I had a terrible suspicion I never thanked the web blog owner for those strategies. Those people were for that reason excited to see all of them and have truly been taking pleasure in these things. We appreciate you turning out to be quite kind and then for considering variety of superior tips most people are really eager to learn about. My very own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you earlier.

  28. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Exceptional blog and superb design and style.

  29. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly. I’m quite certain I will learn plenty of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  30. A large percentage of of whatever you point out is astonishingly appropriate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular subject goes. Nevertheless at this time there is just one position I am not too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core idea of the issue, let me observe just what all the rest of your readers have to say.Very well done.

  31. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was awesome. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  32. I merely wanted to leave a quick thoughts to say that the weblog was wonderful. I stumbled upon it on google search right after experiencing loads of other information that has been probably not relevant. I thought I would find this much earlier thinking about how good the content is.
