For country-music fans and wannabe songwriters all over the world, a trip to Nashville is the ultimate pilgrimage. Since the 1920s the city has been attracting musicians who have taken the country genre from the “hillbilly music” of the early 20th century to the slick “Nashville sound” of the 1960s to the punk-tinged alt-country of the 1990s.

Nashville has many attractions to keep you busy, from the Country Music Hall of Fame and the revered Grand Ole Opry House to rough blues bars, historic buildings and big-name sports. The locals here are an extremely warm and friendly bunch and the city also has a very lively university community. Accommodation here is excellent with a variety of hotels and guest houses and the cuisine is both varied first class with a variety of restaurants, saloons, bars, cafes, diners and grilles serving both local and international dishes.
