Legends of the Grand Ole Opry |  Willie NelsonWhile in Nashville explore all the sights and sounds Music City has to offer. Music Row is an area just to the southwest of Downtown Nashville, Tennessee and is home to hundreds of businesses related to the country music, gospel music, and Contemporary Christian music industries. Centered around 16th and 17th Avenues South (called Music Square East and Music Square West, respectively, within the Music Row area), along with several side streets, Music Row is widely considered the heart of Nashville's entertainment industry. In this area, you will find the offices of numerous record labels, publishing houses, music licensing firms, recording studios, video production houses, along with other business who serve the music industry, as well as radio networks, and radio stations. Sometimes the words "Music Row" are used as a metonymous nickname for the country music industry as a whole, just as "Madison Avenue" often refers to the advertising industry.

RCA Victor Studios | Studio BHistorical sites such as RCA's famed Studio B, where hundreds of famous musicians have recorded, is found on Music Row.  RCA Studios, became famous in the 1960s for being a part of what many refer to as the Nashville Sound. A sophisticated style characterized by background vocals and strings, the Nashville Sound both revived the popularity of country music and helped establish Nashville, Tennessee as an international recording center.

In her 1994 memoir, Dolly Parton recounted how she was rushing to her first recording session at Studio B in September 1967 (shortly after having signed with RCA) and, in her haste to make the session on time, drove her car through the side wall of the building. She noted how the spot where her car impacted the building is still visible.

Dolly PartonCountry music entertainers Roy Acuff and Chet Atkins are memorialized with streets named in their honor in the area, and in 1960 Willie Nelson called Nashville home. Not to miss is The Country Music Hall of Fame which is in a new state-of-the-art building in Downtown Nashville.

In the mood for some good grub? Try the world famous king of bar-b-que “Jack's Barbecue”. Wow! What can I say!  Ribs+pulled pork+mac and cheese = BBQ heaven. As you pull up to the parking space, you can smell the smoker and your taste buds excited. The BBQ here is quite heavenly as are its sides. 6 different types of BBQ sauce ,and good hearty portions of food. No wonder this place is world famous.

Chet Atkins } RCA's Studio BSee the show that made country music famous at the Grand Ole Opry. Through the years, the Opry has promoted country stars and their songs via a series of technological advancements. When WSM was founded in 1925, it was one of the strongest radio signals in the South. In 1932, its power was boosted to 50,000 watts of clear-channel broadcasting, meaning the Opry could easily be heard by anyone within a 750-mile radius of Nashville.

The Opry was broadcast weekly over NBC national-network radio in 1943-1960. It was an ABC TV network show in 1955-56. PBS began broadcasting the Opry live in 1978. In 1985, the Opry commenced its run as a weekly cable television show. In 2000, it was launched on the Internet.

Jack's Bar-B-Que, Nashville, TNThe Opry continued to evolve musically as well. Before he was a country-music "outlaw," Willie Nelson was in the Grand Ole Opry cast in 1964-1970. Willie's fellow renegade Charlie Daniels remains in the show's cast today. The Opry has been musically flexible enough to embrace traditionalist Porter Wagoner in the 1950s, pop-country superstar Ronnie Milsap in the 1970s and "young country" stylists Diamond Rio in the 1990s. Bill Anderson, Mel Tillis and Tom T. Hall stand tall as Grand Ole Opry stars who are members of both The Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
