Whilst we walked round the Lower Broadway District of Nashville because it was lively and entertaining, we only drove round the Music Row District. This district may be as musically important to Nashville, as it housed many of the studios where the "Nashville Sound" was recorded, it is, today, mainly office accommodation and restaurants, nowhere near as interesting as the Lower Broadway District. At one end of Music Row, though, there is an interesting bronze composition called "Musica". Sculpted by Alan LeQuire (who also sculpted the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument in Nashville's Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and the statue of Jack Daniel in the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg), "Musica" features nine nude, dancing male and female figures. Dominating the traffic island on which it is situate, it is worth visiting Music Row if only to have a look at this sculpture.

Spontaneous trip Sept. 2022 (Sunday through Tuesday) 2 1/2 days spent in one of the best Music cities in the states.Our goal was to relax, not be tourists, lay by the hotel pool, have cocktails, eat anazing food, listen to incredible music. We succeeded at all. Stayed in the Mid-town area (perfect for walking, near Vanderbildt University, & Music Row, not to be confused with Broadway).
As avid New Orleans lovers, we expected it to feel similar, and in some ways it certainly did, but in others, it was New Orleans on steroids. We enjoyed GREAT music (on and off Broadway-Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar!!, The Local, Losers/Winners, etc.), excellent food (Nashville Hot Chicken a must), terrific craft cocktails in speakeasy-style lounges (The Patterson House, Fable Lounge to name just two - really an awesome alternative to just staying on Broadway). Music was everywhere, from solo artists to group bands, all hoping to be "discovered" and all, in our humble opinion, should be. Our first trip to "Music City", with Southern hospitality at its finest, it certainly will not be our last! Do yourself a favor, GO!
(A side note: no cover charge or drink minimum at ANY Honky Tonk - another win, win!)

A very cool vibe with a lot of interesting pubs, bars and restaurants. We went to the Fleet Street Pub and I would definitely recommend their Fish and Chips with mashed potatoes.

We are not big city people. We just like music and the bar atmosphere. Nashville was awesome and we both said we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Just way more bums on the streets and sidewalks than we ever could have imagined.

Just to clarify, Music Row is NOT Broadway where honky-tonks and multistory venues are cranking out live music all day and night. It is a district of Nashville just west of downtown that has been the headquarters of the country music industry and where numerous recording studios are located. It is a rather nondescript area, but this street played a huge role in music history and probably can only be appreciated by participating in a guided tour explaining that history. I visited Historic RCA Studio B which is located here as part of a tour at an additional cost when visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

I followed the advice from other reviews and we took the Trolley to hear the history. Great to learn but you never would know if you just walk this yourself. If you want you can then go back for some pics.

Visiting The Ryman Auditorium, Johnny Cash Museum and Restaurant wete top on my list. But just to see and hear the music all up and down Music Row was a great experience. Would definitely recommend Visiting Music Row .

Had no idea quite how many recording studios were on one street. Interspersed with wealth managers and attorney offices :)

If you are interested in music, take the Nashville Hop On Hop Off Trolley Tour to learn about Music Row. Originally we walked down a small part of the street, but did not know any of the history of the houses that we were passing. It was hot and not fun. We decided to take the tour on another day and were happily surprised by the coverage of music row. Our driver, Nelson pointed out place after place where different artists recorded and provided lots of historical facts and interesting stories. We were not expecting to enjoy the area as much as we did by taking the trolley.

Just a bunch of office building and homes. At first I was going through housing community. It was interesting to see where the stars went to record their songs. Driving or walking the area on your own would not give you much information or perspective.
