My love affair with Nashville began long before I visited for the first time and years before I was lucky enough to live there. As a small child, I dreamed of Music City while I listened to the country crooners I idolized. Although I no longer live there, I am always thrilled when I get to go back for a visit.
After the show, we walked down the famed alley way that separates the backstage door of the Ryman and the honky tonks of Lower Broadway. We ducked into the back door of Robert’s Western World to listen to the rockabilly stylings of Brazilbilly and grab a late-night snack. (Brazilbilly is a sentimental favorite for Scott and me because they played our wedding.) The place was thick with tourists (I guess I’m one, too, these days), but the band was still good, and the short-order cooks still deliver a good cheeseburger!
We eventually returned to our wonderful room at the Hutton exhausted and happy. It was a perfect Nashville night!
