Overview

Established July 2012. Hank, Johnny, Chet, George, Tammy, Conway, Loretta, Dolly, Willie . . . There was a time when country music was on a first name basis with its fans. A time when the streets of downtown Nashville were alive with the sound of backroom guitar pulls, Midnight Jamborees and the Grand Ole Opry. Now you can recapture the magic of this golden era on the Walkin' Nashville Music City Legends Tour. Packed with history and behind-the-scenes anecdotes about your favorite country legends, this 90-minute walking tour tells the real story of how Nashville came to be called Music City. You'll see Printer's Alley, The Ryman Auditorium, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, Ernest Tubb Record Shop and Hatch Show Print.Your friendly guide is Grammy-nominated journalist and musician, Bill DeMain. A longtime resident of Nashville, he will show you hidden corners of the city not found in any guidebook and tell you stories you won't hear on any other tour. Visit website for scheduling details.

Bill is a walking, talking encyclopedia of Nashville and the music industry. The tour was fascinating and brought Nashville to light in a whole new way for me. I would go on this tour again just to hear more of Bill's stories.

Can't recommend this tour enough. Bill is a music journalist, musician, storyteller and all around great guy. He gives you off-Broadway recommendations for music that evening to help steer you away from the bachelor(ette) parties and even a Nashville Spotify playlist. Definitely helped set the...More

Walkin' Nashville is off for the winter. My tours resume on March 3rd. For future reference, I do not offer pick ups at the hotel. I'd suggest a taxi or Uber downtown.
