NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When you think Music City, you may think of Broadway. Now, Nashville's Music Row welcomes walking tours to highlight the history, hiding in plain sight.
To the untrained eye, it's a tranquil neighborhood. But to country music fans and historians, Music Row is so much more.
"Music Row is Nashville's brand. We're Music City and this is where the music comes from. So you can go down to lower Broad and hear the music, but if you want to see where it's made, where it's promoted, where the artists are discovered and the song writers write, this is where it happens," said Carolyn Brackett, the Senior Field Officer for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Together, with "Let's Go Traveling Tours" and "Historic Tours of America's Old Town Trolley Tours," they're taking locals and tourists down memory lane and uncovering more than 60 years of music history.
Tours begin at Bobby's Idle Hour on 16th Avenue. Then for 90-minutes guides point out hidden gems.
Tour tickets are $35 and a portion of each ticket sold will support the Music Row Preservation Fund.
