Can you hear it? The sound of walking down Broadway in Nashville, TN. 

Aside from the bustling noise of the traffic, you also get beautiful music floating out of almost every bar on the Broadway strip. It’s where a handful – if not most country music stars got their start and began their journey as musicians. A lot of those musicians had such an impressive career that they ended up in the Country Music Hall of Fame, located right there in Nashville, TN.
