Travel Blogs from Nashville
Good mornin y'all and welcome back to another instalment of the Weekly Mash. Despite the disappointment of Paul McCartney's concert cancellation, we decided to visit Nashville as planned for the scheduled 4 days. Trace and I travelled separately as she was flying in from Kansas City post a work trip so we would rendezvous in Dallas Fort Worth in transit to Nashville. Founded in the late 18th century by two mountain men, the river port city of Nashville is the ...
... one of the best gigs we'd ever been to. All of the musicians were immensely talented, and the line-up included the most recorded bass player of all time, Michael Rhodes. He may have been the coolest person we've ever seen. We googled him after the show, and they weren't lying - he's recorded with the likes of Johnny Cash, Elton John, Dolly Parton and Sting, and so many more. There was also a special guest in the audience who got up to play, a piano virtuoso called John Jarvis ...

Location not great for those seeking the strip. Service patchy. Rooms fine, but no bathtub!
If you're into the music, I'd suggest staying on the strip instead. I've learned that "shuttles into town," which sound so great when you're comparing prices and rationalising a discount, are the bane of my existence, something to be avoided in the future.
