Travel > Guitar Town


We spent the day wondering around downtown Nashville and Music Row. Went to Ernest Tubb's Record Shop and bought a copy of John Hartford's RCA Recordings. Good stuff. Talked to the people at the shop. The clerk is a guitar major at Belmont University named Justin Schafer.

Tubb's has a great set of autographed photographs of country legends, and I told Justin about Roy's Record Shop in Maryville and their collection of autographed pictures of country music stars from Dolly Parton to Freda Parton. Roy has an autographed photo of John Hartford that Roy told me he got when Hartford was at the Musuem of Appalachia in Norris. Hartford had truly beautiful calligraphy, BTW. He was really an amazing guy.

Slideshow of our Nashville rambling below. Guitars, Cadillacs, etc., etc. UPDATE: Added captions at Countertop's request. Mouseover the pictures below for a description and comments. Click on any picture to enlage it. We found out why there was such a big line around the Wild Horse. American Idol contestant Josh Gracin was playing there.

Chris: that feed store is really cool. I actually took a picture of the bank/tattoo parlor, but didn't include it in the slide show.

top: you got it. Mouse over pics for a description (only works on the main page).
