Music Row occupies a couple of streets in Nashville adjacent to Vanderbilt. It is a mixed neighborhood with some office buildings as well as residential buildings that now house producers, attorneys, managers, recording studios, etc. There isn't really much to see unless you know what goes on inside the buildings--that is where a tour book or a guide will enhance...

Something for absolutely everyone here. NFL, NHL, Karaoke, and too much nightlife to see in one weekend. The main drag is three lanes wide and handles the traffic very well. Off-street parking is available but good luck finding a spot. I parked four blocks away and payed $10.00 which seemed to be the norm. We plan on going back again... More

I don't really care for the new country music but I really enjoy the "old country classics" from the sixties, seventies and eighties. I was very pleased to see so many artists in many of the venues performing the classics with such perfection. There were not any cover charges in any of the clubs the week I was there and... More

When you go to Nashville, this is THE stretch you have to see (besides Broadway). Every building for a mile is a studio -- Sony, BMI, Warner Bros. -- and they are all housed in beautifully restored homes or grand buildings. It is very cool to see the big yard signs out front of each studio showing all the artists... More

Yep - if you're going to Nashville this has to be on your list..! Buzzing with life and music from all sides..! Take plenty of beer money and a camera..! And if you're after cowboy boots as well as nightlife there's a store there too. The Ryman is on the end and Nashville Predators stadium is there too.

I worked on Music Row for 18 years, up to 2014, and loved it. The area around it was not as commercially built up then as it is now and the wonderful Musica Statue wasn't there or the mysterious round-about. The big draw to the actual Music Row, 16th and 17th Avenues and the little connector streets, has diminished a... More

It was nice to see all of the statues around the major labels. Nice to see Nashville isnt just a place to party or to just visit. It is a place rich with history and appreciation for the art and talent.

We were quite underwhelmed as we visited music row. A bunch of small, cramped, tired bars with a small stage in the corner. I will say we heard some quite talented artists, but overall not very impressive. i understand and appreciate the history of Nashville, but beyond that, music row was just boring.
