Nashville’s Music Entertainment and Performing Arts

Although country music is a staple genre for the city, there’s far more musical history than what you may think. Nashville also incorporates rock, bluegrass, jazz, and more to help give it the “Music City” name. Many legends began their careers on the Honky Tonk Highway of the Broadway Historic District. This lower stretch of the district has many “honky-tonk” or live music establishments to visit. At the center of the city’s country music industry is Music Row. Located southeast of the city, you can find historic radio stations and recording studios where legends like Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley recorded some of their musical top hits.

Aside from musical entertainment, Nashville is a great home to the performing arts. The Nashville Ballet is known for performing captivating new works as well as iconic classics. The Belcourt Theatre is another great option for viewing independent, foreign, and classic films year-round. Whatever your entertainment preference may be, Nashville is sure to not disappoint.
