“Some neat items”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

If you are looking for something to do it is OK. Seeing some memoriblia and his bus was good. Nice selection of CD's for sale but for me. I don't remember many of them since I am only 43. I only reconized some of the artifacts because of my grandparents. So it was hard for me to get too into it. For me I could have done something else.

“Best Country Music Shop we came across”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

Great to walk through the Ernest Tubb tour bus imagining what the walls of it would say if it could talk!! Found some great CD's and books there that I would never be able to get back in Australia at really good prices. I could have stayed there for hours but the kids had other things on their mind. give yourself plenty of time to look through the CD's and leave the kids behind.

“A worthy stop for a piece of performance and music purchase history”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

We stopped at both the Broadway Ernest Tubb Record Shop and the location next to the Midnight Jamboree Theatre near the Opry. Both were great!

Ernest Tubb was one of my father's absolute favorite performers. This made the journey to the Music Valley Drive record shop especially meaningful for me with Ernest's 1970's tour bus and quite a bit of other memorabilia there.

You will see creative marketing throughout both stores. Nice options. The spirit of Ernest Tubb is alive and well in Nashville due to the efforts of those connected to the shop and Jamboree. Life is as it should be in Nashville with his spirit still strong there/

I would LOVE to attend the Midnight Jamboree if our schedules allow in Nashville another time.
