Truth is stranger than fiction and you'll certainly believe that after this 90 minute walking tour of downtown Nashville. Hear about the antics of Fannie Battle, Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett. You will also take a 'behind the scenes' tour of the Ryman Auditorium, where Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley both played (and we don't mean just their music!).

Hear all the unpublished "Naughty and Nice" stories about these great streets, buildings, songs, events and people that have made Nashville a city whose name is known throughout the world.
The lyric of Nashville's history is composed of romance and tragedy, heroes and villains, civil and war, southern belles and brothels!
The stories you will hear while on this walking tour read like a John Wayne or Randolph Scott movie, with characters such as Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Andrew Jackson, Granny White and Fannie Battle (arrested by the Union Army for compromising their soldiers and the Army's secrets at the same time.) All of these characters will come to life with stories of their time spent in Nashville. The fictional stories of "Gone with the Wind" will have nothing on the true stories of Nashville!
While on this tour you will experience a "Behind the Scenes" tour of the Ryman Auditorium. Known as the "Mother Church of Country Music", these walls will tell the stories of Nashville's modern folk heroes of Music. Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, Tootsie Bess and countless others whose songs and lives shaped the image of this city and molded the music "home-grown" in Nashville, "Country Music".

This trip wasnt much about walking really. We walked a little up the main street called broadway but then spent most of the tour backstage at the ryman. It was interesting. Perhaps the girl took us there because it was freezing outside. So there was no complaints. Just not what I was expecting.Irish
