This month we’re celebrating all things Nashville with the launch of several exciting celebrity lines straight out of the Music City. From Sheryl Crow’s rock n’ roll roots to Hillary Scott’s boho country vibes and Kimberly Schlapman’s quintessential southern charm, Nashville’s diverse style and rich musical history make it one of the country’s top destinations. We’ve put together a travel guide to help you explore the city’s top attractions, dine at the most popular restaurants and of course, pack like a country music star so you can do it all in style.
What To Do
No visit to Nashville is complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry. Country’s most famous stage hosts weekly concerts and features a mix of the industry’s legends and contemporary artists. If you want to learn more about the Opry’s history, take a backstage tour for the full country music experience.
Nashville isn’t called the Music City for nothing and it should be no surprise that all of our recommended excursions revolve around country music. If you want to get to know more about the history of and the musicians behind the industry’s most iconic songs, then add a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame to your list. Complete your stay and join the locals with a night of karaoke at one of the city’s many honky tonks.
Where To Eat
When in the South, eat as the southerners do. Locals and tourists agree that Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is the hottest spot to get your fried chicken fix. If barbecue is on the menu, a visit to Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint can’t be missed. The restaurant makes everything from scratch daily and has mastered the tradition of smoked whole-hog barbeque. For the breakfast lovers, wake up early and head to Biscuit Love to try their famous Bonuts; but be prepared to wait. This establishment is so popular, it’s been known to attract long lines that go around the block.
What To Pack
Now that you know what to do and where to eat during your stay in the Music City, it’s time to make sure your suitcase is packed and ready to do it all in style. Luckily for us, we have new styles from some of Nashville’s biggest stars to help us.
For a day of sightseeing, pair this breezy peasant dress from Hillary Scott’s debut fashion line, LaBellum, with this saddle bag from Patricia Nash for an effortless and chic southern, boho look. When it’s time to hit the honky tonks, rock these patched and distressed skinny jeans and leather boots from Sheryl Crow’s debut line with your favorite vintage t-shirt and statement earrings.
