You want to see Taylor Swift’s place, right? (Who doesn’t?) You can do that and scope out homes (past and present) of folks like Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, and plenty of others. Take a DIY tour with a map from Celebrity Homes in Nashville, or climb aboard a comfy bus and let someone else drive so you can stay glued to the window with your phone at the ready just in case someone famous steps outside.

Of course, we’re talking about the one, the only Grand Ole Opry. Sure, it’s packed with tourists, but have you actually been to a show? There’s a reason it’s called “Country Music’s Biggest Stage” and it has nothing to do with square footage. Check out their new star-studded tour exhibit and take a tour. There are several to choose from, including Women of Country (with mimosas!), Country Duo and a Postshow Backstage Tour to enjoy after you’ve taken in a performance (show ticket required). Choose your tour.

Located on Lower Broadway in Nashville, these venues don’t require a cover charge, making it a budget-friendly way to enjoy live music. Where better to spot a future country music sensation and (who knows?) maybe a current star, as well. Get the scoop.
