Nashville is known as "Music City" in large part due to the country music institutions along Music Row. Since the 1950s, the recording studios and music labels in the Music Row district revitalized country music, transformed musicians into stars, and produced hit after hit. Come see where Owen Bradley shaped "the Nashville Sound," where Dolly Parton almost failed to record her first album, and where Elvis used to stay. Along the way, we'll visit memorials to past music heroes, enjoy a cocktail, and taste the best Nashville Hot Chicken in town.

I had no idea just how influential and important Music Row and Nashville was and still are for American music. I’ll be breathing fire the rest of the night thanks to Hattie B‘s, but very happily doing so. Looking forward to going on another of Maria’s Sidewalks.
