Travel Attractions: The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee

On our recent road trip from Kansas City to The Smokey Mountains, we made a 2-night stop in Nashville, Tennessee.  What is Nashville known for?  Of course...COUNTRY MUSIC!!  I like all kinds of music.  I'm the one that channel surfs in the car stopping at rock, country, oldies, etc...  But, my favorite travel music, and the one that takes me back to my roots is country.  So, while in the land of country, we had to make a stop at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The entrance to the museum greets you with beautiful flowers, trees, and a long titled wall...all in the middle of downtown.

Upon entering, you look up to an impressive sky-lighted ceiling and large banners guiding you through the lobby.

We began our tour with how country music began.  Numerous displays allowed you to play songs from the past and learn about the musicians.  Kiosks were set up with trivia questions to test your knowledge.
  

The Wall of Records made us realize the impact that country music has had on the nation.  It is made up of hundreds of records and artists that had chart toppers in history.

Current exhibits focus on Charlie Daniels, Jason Aldean, The Music of 2016, and Shania Twain.  Each one has their own collection of artifacts, costumes, historical facts and features.

Some of our favorite exhibits were of Dolly Parton, Reba McIntire, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, and Carrie Underwood's dress that she wore when she won American Idol.

Do you know the anatomy of a guitar?  Well, you can learn all about it.  And go inside for a family picture!!

How about how musicians traveled the country to concerts and appearances?  Yep, they have a display about that too.  Along with a pretend Taylor Swift bus that you can go inside and participate in activities.

The last room that we entered was the beautiful Hall of Fame Rotunda.  It presents you with those lucky musicians that have been inducted in a round room showing that everyone is equal.  This year's inductees are Alan Jackson, Jerry Reed, and Don Schlitz.

So, if you are a country music fan, and in the Nashville area, consider visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame.  There is something for every age to see, and something new to learn.
