This is not a "must see" but we walked around the various studios. We also were there on the Studio B tour.

enough said! I would not suggest doing this unless you want to see Vanderbilt University as well. Thanks

Office building, tattoo parlors and homeless people. Being right next to Vanderbilt and with all the music studios, we expected to find a vibrant district. We walked around for 30 minutes and the headed over to the West End and had a great dinner at Blackstone's. If you want to see historic buildings, skip this and walk the Vanderbilt campus...it's...

Amazing to see how many studios Nashville has. At the other hand: For me it was not clear wether I could stop somewhere for a visit or not. So we just drove by with the car. Not very exciting, but fun to check out

Interesting history of music in Nashville. All the recording labels are located here. The RCA studio where Elvis recorded the majority of his songs is here too.

We were expecting more from what we saw on Music Row. The streets were lined with old former homes converted to offices of the music producers.

Part of the fun of visiting Nashville is seeing new and emerging artists jamming and just bar & honky-tonk hopping. Music Row is a very small part of Nashville, but I really recommend parking your car and taking a walk around and stopping for a drink wherever the spirit (or music) leads. It is very walkable and a nice neighborhood.
