Went down to the row, took the boy to play go! Nice place to walk, with the family and look at stuff, while the kids play

Maybe there was more to it than was apparent from the streets, but we drove up and down 16th and 17th and all we saw were recording company offices and a controversial statue (controversial because it shows anatomically correct humans)

There is a lot of history in this area and the bars and restaurants all have live music to enjoy. The atmosphere at night is one giant party up and down the street. Definitely a place to see if you're in town and like live music.

Lots of restaurants and sight seeing here. From the original Tin Roof, Losers pub, Musica statues and guitar art, there is much to see. You can walk the streets and go by the major music labels, PROs and the CMA offices. Most tour rides will go through this area.

Interesting, but not fulfilling, to walk or drive this without a knowledgeable person to point out things that don't have obvious signs. I would recommend doing a tour. I presume there's a LOT more behind the scenes stuff to see and learn.

Music Row is really just a neighborhood of older homes that have been converted into recording studios. I was expecting more. If you are in the area, drive through and see the signs out front, but don't expect much.

a suburban area of Nashville holds a triangle of some of the most well known recording studios and office buildings. RCA, Decca, the BMI building, just to name a few. cool place to walk around

Had a great time walkig up and down music row. Every place you stop at has a live band. You can hear them on the street as they are usually set up right by front doors. Not all country. They are playing all genres.

This was an interesting visit. Nice example of 1920 architecture as you walk the street. Interesting that music studios are in houses.
