Legions of recording companies, music publishers, and agents crowd the famed "Music Row" in Nashville, Tennessee. At several historic attractions throughout this music city you can almost hear echoes of great country performers of the past. Start your Nashville vacation on Music Row at RCA Studio B, the city's oldest surviving recording studio, where Hank Snow, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton cut hit records. Stop in at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and imagine Patsy Cline's performance here. On the same block is Robert's Western World, which doubles as a bar and shoe store. Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum are other must-see spots for music lovers. Break from the music scene on a tour of three outlying attractions that reflect the wealth and gracious lifestyles of the Old South. On the southwest edge of Nashville are Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art and the Belle Meade Plantation. East of town is the mansion home of President Andrew Jackson, The Hermitage.
