2006 CIT Highlights
 
Area Attractions  

The Music in Music City

Nashville is a city with a foundation built on more than 200 years of musical roots. Today, those roots have grown firmly into a platform for which the city heralds its signature product. And Nashville's most popular attractions all share one common characteristic, the city's most famous export: music. The Grand Ole Opry, the world's longest-running radio program, made Nashville a household name.

Touting the music that has made Music City famous, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, more than just a storage house of country's colorful past, is dedicated to the preservation of music and to music education, and included with the cost of admission are many interactive musical programs.

 

Invitation to Nashville
 

 

Ryman AuditoriumFor over 100 years, the Ryman Auditorium has been home to musicians, actors, and comedians. So that guests can experience the Ryman as the stars do, the facility offers backstage tours plus special visitor opportunities for guests to record a song in an onsite recording booth in the auditorium.

Seen simply as an art museum by many, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, a center specializing in exhibiting premiere collections on loan from other galleries around the world, is a place where the entire community can embrace all forms of art, including music, as on select Thursday and Friday evenings, the Frist becomes a musical forum as well as an art gallery.

For almost 80 years, country music has been synonymous with Nashville; however, within the last two decades, many genres of music other than country have made their impact. From gospel spirituals and bluegrass to modern pop and blues, Nashville is Music City - the only Music City. The area known as Music Row developed into a powerhouse for the recording industry, and one studio on Music Row took center stage nationally. Known as the Home of 1,000 Hits, RCA Studio B became legendary as artists like Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, and the Everly Brothers all recorded there.

Nashville SymphonyThere is a vibrant classical movement in Nashville. The Grammy-nominated Nashville Symphony performs year round and now sells more CDs than any other American Orchestra. The symphony has its home in a new state-of-the-art symphony hall with acoustic designs influenced by the best symphony halls in the world. Not your typical chamber orchestra, the Nashville Chamber Orchestra collaborates with pop artists and songwriters to create movements that push the symphonic boundaries. And the Nashville Ballet has been a forerunner in the industry for collaborations with known artists that live in Nashville.

For history buffs, there is plenty to explore. Walk through Fort Nashborough, a Nashville Parthenonreplica fort one-fourth the size of the original, and see where the pioneers settled upon the banks of the Cumberland River. Tour the city's oldest home, Travellers Rest, and hear how a friendship begun by chance developed into a partnership managing a presidential campaign. Marvel at the Tennessee State Capitol building, one of the oldest operational capitols in the nation. And discover the Parthenon, the world's only full-scale replica of the ancient Greek temple. Host an off-site event inside the temple at the feet of the 42-foot-tall gilded Athena.

There is plenty more to see and do in Nashville during your visit. Explore the following resources to help plan your stay:
