Things To Do in Nashville: September 17 – 23
Howdy folks, I’m back from my long extended hiatus and a new last name to add to it. Might I add, what a week to be back with the Things To Do post on the How To Play Nashville Blog. I’m pretty sure I got Americana-Ized (Yes, I realize that is not a real word.) while looking at this week’s events. I also want to add that I had my first ever Americana experience on Monday at the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band show at the Ryman and then again at the Americana Honors & Award Show at the Ryman last night. I feel like they might know me now at the Ryman after this week. Or not, but I like to think we are still the old
If you aren’t an Americana fan, don’t fret there are lots of other things to do this week. Nashville really is one of those cities with many things happening ALL THE TIME. It’s something every week from Live Music, Festivals, Family Fun, Sports, Food + Drink, and oh so much more. You can never get bored in Nashville … that’s for sure!
