As a Belmont University student, our daughter takes classes on Music Row, so of course, we wanted to take a look at it.

Lined along these quiet streets, there... More

This area doesn't look much and it isn't but walk the same streets as Johnny Cash, Dolly and many more. Be warned the homeless hang out by the piano sculpture....they might be harmless but I would be extra careful.

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

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.
