We left deciding that some of the best things you find you definitely fall upon by chance!
We arrived at Nashville and had already decided that we, as neither of us were great country music fans, would drive past the sights such as the Grand Ole Opry and take some photos, however the best laid plans... We managed to take a ring road and seemed to go around the back end of all the sights. The only place we really saw was the Gaylord Opera House and we were too late to take a photo!
We then headed out of Nashville, as we had spotted Shelbyville on the map which wasn't far from Nashville. Shelbyville had two attractions for us, the first being one that any Simpsons fan would know about! Shelbyville is the neighbouring village to Springfield (where the Simpsons live for the non-Simpsons fan) and whilst we have seen many Springfields, this was the first Shelbyville we had seen!
The second attraction was the proximity of the Jack Daniels distillery, where we plan to do the tour tomorrow! Yes, there now seems to be a bit of a drinks factory theme to our travels - the Bundaberg distillery in Australia, the winery in New Zealand and D's looking forward to discovering the Coca Cola factory in Atlanta! Well, it is his trade!
