NASHVILLE TRAVEL GUIDE
WHAT TO EATNashville hot chicken, southern staples like chicken and waffles, biscuits or a meat and three (BBQ meat with 3 sides), banana pudding and a meal at the many country singer-owned restaurants in town (Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge or Blake Shelton’s Ole Red).

FUN FACTNashville earned its melodic moniker from a very unlikely source…Queen Victoria! It’s not even country music that put the town on the map, but an African-American acapella choir. Named the Fisk Jubilee Singers, they toured around the world in the 19th century with a stop in England, wowing the Queen who allegedly claimed they must be from “Music City.” The group still exists today—catch a show when in town!
