Our Trip to Nashville

Our Trip to Nashville
 We flew in and out of and stayed in Nashville the first two nights and the last night of our vacation.  The last night we stayed at the Union Station Historic Wyndham Hotel.  It used to be the train station, and was converted into a hotel.  This is it...
The inside of the hotel
It was within walking distance of downtown Nashville
Ernest Tubb is a country music legend.  When the Opry was at the Ryman, performers came here after the show for the Saturday Night Jamboree, an informal show.
One of the many legendary music clubs on the Nashville strip
Listening to some great live music...no cover charge!  The upright bass player was one of Johnny Cash's Tennessee Three.  Now he walks around with the tip jar. 
We spent a few hours in the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum where they had paraphenalia from almost every country music star through history on display.
Hank Williams Sr.'s guitar and suit.  He died at the age of 29 in 1953, but is viewed as one of the fathers of country music.
All the plagues of country music hall of fame inductees
Nashville has a full-size replica of the Greek Parthenon...just in case we never see the real one.
It was built in the 1800s for the World Fair.  The inside was closed, so we didn't get to see it.
