Literally, in every bar and on every corner there is live music. The strip is sort of a honky tonk Las Vegas with tons of bars, restaurants, and shops. Lots of the restaurants have rooftop seating so you can catch all the action over dinner or a drink. The only drawbacks are one, the obvious one, there are a lot... More

The music industry is not what it once was. Years ago, the business and recording part of the Nashville music industry was mainly situated on or near the 2 streets that are known as "Music Row." Now, the industry has changed radically, most of the studios are gone, most of the publishing companies and record labels have consolidated and downsized,... More

There is honestly not a lot to see, but corporate buildings where the studios are housed. The really cool thing is that a STAR could walk in or out at any point. I enjoyed seeing where musicians record and think that if it is your first time in Nashville, a drive or walk through is good time spent.

Wasn't sure what to expect but this was just a walk through streets to see the outside of a bunch of businesses. Big bust was not being able to go into RCA studio B because you had to do a tour thing.

These small houses on music row house many small studios and record producers offices. It is fun to go down the street before or after major award shows to see huge posters of songs nominated or winning awards.

Just walked through the neighborhood without going to any of the businesses. It was a beautiful day and the tree lined sidewalks had a beautiful feel. Went past Belmont college and Vanderbilt University. A few tourist buses drove by, but not too many. Would be a great place to spend more time if you are interested in the recording industry...

This is a college age part of town, and limited in choices. Obviously there is several developements taking place, and in 10 years it will improve.

Music Row...such an incredible place to see and learn about the music of Nashville. It truly is so inspiring to know so many stars have walked the same sidewalks as we can and the songs that we recognize come to life once we've walked past the very recording studio that the song was recorded from. The multiple statues are intriguing,... More
