Sorry. No story today folks. Too busy putting on the miles to get to Nashville yesterday. We had a terrific evening down on Broadway. The city is jam packed with people with a big New Year’s Eve event just around the corner and today , there is a U.S. College Bowl Game pitting the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the LSU Tigers. Every bar was full and so were most of the patrons, mostly football fans.

Earlier in the day, we were given a tip of a famous eating establishment that specializes in Tennessee barbeque, called Jack’s. It was spectacular. The food was plentiful, cheap and delicious. Right next door was another Nashville landmark, Robert’s bar. We were told that if you wanted to hear some real old fashioned Country and Western and Honky Tonk, this was the place to be. We weren’t disappointed. We ran out of superlatives in our praise of the band. Each of them have been session musicians playing with many of the greats of the past and present. Later in the evening we walked up and down Broadway. Every bar has a live band and none of them could touch the guys we heard.

Tomorrow we will visit the other landmarks in the city including the Grand Ole Opry and head to Memphis the day after. And then it’s on to New Orleans.

Have a great day.
