January 29, 2017 (day 3)
I did teensy bits of the Natchez Trace and Dixie Highway with a dandy breakfast in between.

January 28, 2017 (day 2)
I learned a little more history this morning then filled the afternoon and evening with breweries, barbecue, and music.

January 27, 2017 (day 1)
There was just enough snow in the air and on the ground to remind me of what could be as I headed to Nashville. I heard snippets of songs from bands uncounted, listened to full tunes from a half-dozen or so, and was entertained by a full dozen act at the Grand Ole Opry. I do like this town.

Prelude - January 26, 2017
It was just about a year ago that I set out for what was supposed to be a Nashville musical triple play. After a night in Louisville, I would head to "Music City" for a night at the Bluebird Cafe, a night at the Grand Ol' Opry, and a night listening to road fan favorites The Road Crew. Major snowfall kept me from the Opry and totally wiped out the Road Crew performance. I did catch three talented musicians at the Bluebird. The story of that trip is here.

I'm trying again. When snow kept me from the Opry I was told I could apply the price of the ticket to another anytime during the next year. When I learned that the Crew would be performing this Saturday, I called the Opry and managed to beat the one year expiration date by a day. Not surprisingly, prices have gone up so that I had to cough up an additional six bucks but I'm set for the Opry on Friday and the Road Crew on Saturday. Two Thursday night shows at the Bluebird were sold out.
