Day 2

Nashville

Nashville, the capital of Tennessee and at the heart of the American country music scene. Take a look around the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which tells the tale of country music and includes plenty of music memorabilia, films and photographs. Later, explore the Johnny Cash Museum before enjoying a live musical performance at the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. Stepping away from the music for a moment you can admire the striking AT&T tower, whose two spires have earned it the nickname ‘the Batman Building’.
