N is for

is for

Nashville 
Spring Break in Nashville (con't)
That fooled you!!
I have been to Nashville many times visiting LS and family.  If they didn't live there, I can honestly say, Nashville never would have made my 'Must' visit list. Why? Because Nashville mean't Country Music. It is known as Music City, after all. I am not a fan of Country Music. I don't hate Country Music.  I just have a low threshold for it.
Over the course of my visits to LS and family, Nashville has pleasantly surprised me. It has so much to offer. Little walk about villages, theatre, comedy, jazz bands, blues bands, wonderful restaurants, scenic parks, boutiques and shops stocked with the quirky and interesting. Ohhh and Hats!

Did I mention Nashville is also home to the Grand Ole Opry?  Just in case anyone didn't know that!

Well what are you waiting for.......

As a side note, I just discovered The Green Restaurant Association has two Nashville eateries on its list.
Tayst Restaurant & Wine Bar with a 3 Star rating located on 2100 21st Ave South and The Mad Platter with a 2 Star rating located at 1239 6th Ave North.
I haven’t sampled their offerings.  If you happen to stop at either of them, would love to hear your thoughts.
‘O’ for Monday

My husband and I went to Nashville ages ago and to tell you the truth I remember very little of it now. The shopping and restaurants sound fun, I could do without the Grand Ol Opera, we went there and it was interesting but don't think I would go again.

I am finding there are a few country songs and stars I have a higher tolerance for, but otherwise I'm with you. After this series of posts, I wouldn't mind getting to Nashville one day.

I love country music, though we don't have much in the UK. Often, I'll tune into an American radio station on the internet!

I'd love an opportunity to visit Nashville some day!

I'm starting up a 'Critiquing Crusaders' program, where participants in the Second Crusade can find other writers to exchange critiques with or form critiquing circles. If you're interested, come by The Kelworth Files to check it out!

I dont like the whine whine twang twang kind of country music, but being in Nashville has made me fall in love with the likes of Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, and John Hiatt. Check these fabulous artists out. There is a lot of great talent here. Viva Nashvegas!

I like some country music but it tends to sound all the same.

Since country isn't my thing, I've never been to Nashville. But I shouldn't let my lack of country music love stop me.

I'm like you, I probably will never visit Nashville. Cities in general are not my thing. I'd love to see the sequoia national forest.

I love Nashville,but I agree, if I didn't have a reason to go (travel through to see family) I wouldn't have visited either. Great post!

I've got a few huge country music fans in the family and they'd love to get to Nashville someday. Glad to hear I'd probably like it too :)

It seems like such a lovely place to visit. I can't wait to see what all they have to offer. I might have to talk my husband into a weekend trip.

I've never been to Nashville. Barely been in Tennessee, just stopped by Memphis briefly :)

Oh, and Liz Phair as a cool song called "Nashville"!

Not been to Nashville ...yet, but did have a little music taster when Nashville came to visit at a local music festival and guess what, a good time was had by one and all! Enjoying your April alphabet Ann. What blogging discipline, I'm impressed!

Nashville is still on my list of places to see. I'm not normally a country gal, but I've been discovering that country music has changed a lot since riding in the car with my dad when I was eight.
