Such an honor to be shown around Nashville by Bill! His passion, knowledge, and love for the history of music, the power of song, and all things Nashville was phenomenal!
Plus, as a high school English teacher & actor, I believe in the power of storytelling, so his tour was perfect; enlightening & entertaining! My wife and I loved every tale dripping with Nashville charm. It was a wonderful way to experience the city- especially with special guests like the owner of the Bluebird Cafe, and the son of a music legend taking the tour with us to add to all the story-telling and all the wonderful music lore of the city (you know it's a great tour when his friends are music legends!) His recommendations for all things Nashville was perfect! If you are in Nashville-
Do yourself a favor and Take this Tour!!!

This was a very rewarding outing. Bill is personable and really knows his music history. I recommend this tour over a "commercial" tour where they just instruct their workers what to say. He really knows Nashville and the music scene.

My daughter and I took Bill's tour as part of a Girls Getaway week in Nashville. We enjoy walking tours but often you get a refresher in what you already know. Not in this case. Bill shared wonderful nuggets that brought the rich tapestry of the Nashville music scene to life. Once the tour concludes, Bill sends out links to recommend books, playlists and videos that really tie together the spirit of the tour. If you're a music junkie, or just someone looking to have fun and learn a little something about Music City and it's awesome history, take this tour. You won't be disappointed.
