Look who I met right when I got into Tennessee? She must of known I was coming to town.
We stopped a long the way at Buddy's Bar-B-Que and it was pretty good! We try to stop at places we've never heard of or we can't go to around DC when we are on trips.
As soon as we got into town we walked all over downtown and got ice cream. I know, so unlike us. ;)
Got a table at Pie in the Sky! We didn't have to wait at all because we sat at a table in the bar area!
Then we had a day filled with fun tourist-y things!
We went to Studio B where tons of country artists have recorded their hits. Pretty much amazing stuff has happened in this room.
Elvis played these pianos. *swoon*
Then we walked around the Country Music Hall of Fame. Tons of cool stuff!!
Why yes those are pistol door handles.
NashVegas!! Lots more walking around town...
Got a little crazy... had a Gene Kelly moment.
Ate at BB King's restaurant. And no, that isn't him. (ps- they charge you a cover even if you go for dinner. Wasn't thrilled about that.)
We got up early the next day to eat some World Famous Biscuits at Loveless Cafe.
Then we checked out downtown Franklin. It is SUPER CUTE! GO THERE! Sadly, no pics. Too busy walking around the festival downtown.
We went to the Franklin Factory.
There must be giants in Franklin.
I learned a little Tennessee home cookin'
Then we went to... THE GRAND OLE OPRY!!!!!!!
AND they let me sing on the stage. For real. That's not a fake picture. I sounded just awful but I got to do it!!
Did you know the Grand Ole Opry has a post office? Because they do and you can mail your favorite artist there.
I'm announcing Brad Paisley onto the stage... OK only in my dreams.
Then we stopped at Opryland Hotel. It reminded me of a hotel in Vegas.
Then, I got a new hat. What do you think?
Leaving the hotel...
So those were some highlights of Nashville! We definitely want to go back one day. A great way to spend our 4 year anniversary. Such a fun town even if you don't like country music. But you probably wouldn't wanna say that out loud there...
