Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
Even if you’re not into country music, it’s worth a stop at the Country Music Hall of Fame for an overview of one of the most influential genres in American music. The block-long building in downtown Nashville doubled in size to 350,000 square feet following a recent $100 million expansion, and takes visitors through the history of country music through artifacts, photographs, and vintage recordings. Some highlights not to be missed: Johnny Cash’s black suit from The Johnny Cash Show, Elvis’s 1960 “solid gold” Cadillac, and the hall of fame itself, with bronze portraits of all inductees dating back to 1961.
