What interests you outside of music?
As far as the area where will you be staying?
Outside of the downtown area (broad street) there are other areas to visit that are nice…most “locals” do not hang out downtown that much but instead hang out over to the Vanderbilt Univ area in what most refer to as “The Gulch” or Hillsboro Village area…this is the local folks place to hangout on the weekends.
Cool towns near by are Franklin and Brentwood which are just south of downtown Nash about 10-12 miles off of Rt 65. Leipers Fork is another nice area to go “hang out”. I live in Brentwood myself. Our host Ben lives in “Old Hickory” which is about 15 miles NE of Nash.
Let me know what you like to do outside of music and I ma sure I can recommend some ideas for ya. Also feel free to PM and I can give you my cell so if you need some help or get lost you can call. Will you be coming alone or with the wife?
Oh, check out “Pucketts Grocery” in Franklin, out host (Ben) plays there with his sisters (Purple Huhls) from time to time and is a restaurant with a stage. I went one evening and took my family to see them there.
