Nashville

The legendary world capital of country music


Up to today, this place in the middle of Tennessee exudes tremendous power and energy: daily live shows everywhere, innumerable recordings are taking place in studios booked
to the limit, collectors and fans looking for vinyl treasures in the numerous record stores of the town. For country fans, the yearly festivals, the CMA Music in June and the AmericanaFest in September, are a must.

Elvis Presley recorded 250 of his songs in RCA’s legendary Studio B, a studio where the so-called Nashville sound was created. Legend has it that Willie Nelson wrote his biggest hits
at the bar counter of “Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge”, which has survived for more than 50 years now. And if you want to feel like a country legend yourself – or maybe become one! – why not go to the fabled “Ryman Auditorium” and record your voice to a playback of a classic country tune for only a handful of dollars. Two magic words: Nashville, Tennessee!

And, hovering over Broadway, the town and ist vicinity, well, all over Tennessee, the spirit of Johnny Cash is omnipresent.
