Hey everyone! Long time, no see…
Despite my ridiculously long blog absences, I am determined to actually finish posting the pictures from our trips a few months ago!
This set of pictures, as you can already tell, is from Nashville, Tennessee! I couldn’t narrow them down enough to practically put in one post, so this one’s in two parts. :-)
As a general rule, I really don’t like cities, but Nashville was so cool! I really liked it, and would love to go back someday! There’s so much history, and so many famous people got their starts or were discovered there!
We toured the Country Music Hall of Fame, and that was awesome!
The lighting inside made taking pictures interesting, because it’s rather dark, and of course I didn’t have my tripod. (Tripods and busy museums are not a good combination…)
This is part of Alan Jackson’s exhibit, which was out at the time. (They rotate what is on display, because the museum’s collection is so vast.) Alan Jackson has such an incredible voice!
So, what’s your car painted with? Elvis had a car painted with layers and layers of crushed fish scales and diamonds!
Maybelle Carter’s Guitar.
Bill Monroe’s mandolin, which was broken into about 150 pieces by a home intruder, and afterwards painstakingly reconstructed by Gibson.
Earl Scruggs’ banjo! That one was definitely of the most interest to me! (Also, did you notice the Gibson trend? Good stuff, huh?)
We had the opportunity to tour RCA’s Studio B, which was awesome! Multiple hit songs were recorded there, by people such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Connie Smith, Floyd Cramer, and lots more!
This is the very same piano that Floyd Cramer played!
The tour guide lady got a picture of us, so we could prove that we were there. ;-)
I thought I was dreaming when we got to this place! Boot Country…literally! haha. I couldn’t resist the boots. ;-)
That finishes up part one of my pictures from Nashville! Part two coming up!
