Honky Tonks in Nashville

Great American Country knows Nashville, TN better than anyone, so we trust them when they share the best honky tonks in “Music City.”

A few places we’re dying to try include:

  • Wildhorse Saloon - Award winning BBQ? We’re in!
  • Station Inn - GAC reports celebrities pop in and out of this place.
  • Lonnie’s Western Room - Who doesn’t love karaoke! 

The Nashville Scene

Nashville is one of those cities that has something for everyone. Nicknamed Music City, USA, this is country music heaven. From the Grand Ole Opry (named the #1 one place to experience music by Lonely Planet) and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to the hundreds of country music bars, you’ll find plenty of spots to practice your line dancing.

If country music isn’t your thing, then immerse yourself in the historical aspects of the city. Civil War battlegrounds and plantations are scattered around the city (check out the Hermitage, Belle Meade Plantation and Stones River National Battlefield).

You can also check out more modern attractions - take in a Tennessee Titans game or visit the Jack Daniel’s Distillery.
