Marilyn, Cheyrl, and I went to Nashville. We intentionally chose to avoid the Country Music Fest crowd; however, we did overlap it on Sunday. We had a great time doing some of the top rated tourist things. It was just impossible to get everything in though.
We saw great shows at the Grand Ole Opry as well as the "Wizard of Oz" in Nashville's symphony hall. We also toured the Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame, Barbara Mandrell's former home (Fontanel), RCA Studio B, and Andrew Jackson's plantation (Hermitage).
We ended up in Memphis with a great four-hour city tour.
Then...we flew home on a rough plane ride back to Texas through the "Tropical Storm Bill" stuff. It was scary might I say!
