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. Great from an historic prospective – after all, these are where past, current and future country stars become legends. But there’s not much else to see, other than the bums on the park benches,...

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.

I saw "music row" on a map and had no idea what it was. On our way out of town, I asked my husband to drive through, just to get a look. What a gem we stumbled upon. Real country music fans will know exactly what music row is but for a novice like me, I am so glad I... More

We went to Music Row on Thursday, May 29, 2014 for dinner and drinks and to watch the entertainment. We walked to a few different bars and found the entertainment lacking the polish that we expected. The performers were clearly just starting out and looking to get some experience. After watching a few hours of this, we cabbed it to... More

If you're a fan of Country music - this is where it all starts. All of the record companies headquarters are located here. I viewed this area while on a bus tour, it's the best way to see it as there really isn't anywhere to stop or any buildings you can go into. Beautiful neighborhood.

I like listen music on my free time. I like listen classical music. Because classical music make my relax. Do someone like Beethoven? I think he is very talent. There are many different kinds of music? I want to go there, and listen it.

Music row or Music Square, is worth a visit if you wanna walk around in a historic area, with all the music companies represented! It not good for fancy photos or any special buildings. However I liked it, since at least two signs informed about some of the buildings and road. I am not sure I would recommend it to... More

We had so much fun seeing Music Row! We had seen pictures, but it is so much cooler in person! We were amazed at the music companies, mostly located in these old houses, and all of the iconic places we recognized. I will definitely go back and take more time next time we visit Nashville. It is a pretty, walkable... More
