On the road: day 4 Nashville
Nashville. Amazing. If you love live music, it's the place for you. We visited three of hundreds of bars in the area with live music. Broadway street in downtown Nashville had a dozen great places to go and one of my favorites was Tootsies. The walls were filled with signed pictures of the artists who have played there. Many would sneak in through the back door between sets at the Ryman, which was the old Grand Ole Opry. The bar had two stages. It was a gritty, cool bar and I only wish the walls could speak. Jacob Lyda was playing when we arrived shortly after lunch. No cover at any of the clubs we found and one act after the other. I could have spend a week in Nashville, but tomorrow we are off to Asheville for my cousin's wedding. I'll be back. Nashville is my kind of place.
