Nashville May, 2018

Downtown Nashville – Country Music City

It seems every bar has an award-winning band, and they are mostly small and packed in close to each other. We stood on the sidewalk and could see and hear 5 bands at once. It’s a fun place, especially if you like the fiddle.

Gaylord Opryland Resort

We stayed here for a few days and it’s pretty fancy. 3 big glass-enclosed atriums with water falls and exotic plants, and not a leaf or petal out of place.

The Real Tennessee with Jimmy and Renee

We stayed a few days with Lisa’s childhood BFF, Renee, and her husband Jimmy, who used to be a monster truck driver on the show circuit. They live in the country and we got to experience the real Tennessee. We loved it.

Canoeing on the Red River

We could almost hear dueling banjos canoeing down the Red river, so named from a Civil War battle. And this is the site of the Bell Witch, the most documented haunting in American history. Spooky.
