These are a few of my favorite 'Nashville' things

You know you have the song in you head now... and to be honest, I totally tried to come up with Nashville-related lyrics to substitute for the actual, but alas, I am no songwriter. Anyway, I have so many favorite things to do around our amazing town - and I thought it'd be fun to put together a random assortment and running list of these ideas for you to try.
