” You’re going to where ? ? ! ” , you were asked by friends and family when you told them where your 30 Plus Teams Tour was going to take you to next .
You’re going to the capital of Tennessee , Nashville .
Other people call it ” Music City . ”
On New Years Eve , don’t expect to see some fancy jewel encrusted ball dropping like in Times Square , nope , this is Music City , you’re going to see a Music Note dropping .
Right now you aren’t thinking about New Years Eve .
You’re on your 30 Plus Teams Tour and since no one wants to go with you , staying home and not going at all is not an option .
Since you don’t live that far away from Nashville , you’re putting gas in that brand new car and driving there .
You have your map just in case your GPS acts up .
You really aren’t that that big of a Country and Western fan , but you understand there’s more to the city than country and western music .
This is a 30 Plus Teams Tour so you’re going to see a Tennessee Titans football game as well as a Nashville Predators hockey game , seeing that you’re such a big fan .
Of hockey , not the Nashville Predators .
You can’t name that many Country stars , but you do know that one of the biggest stars is married to one of the Nashville Predators .
You also know that the city is called ” The Athens of The South . ”
You have no idea why that is , but you sure are going to find out .
Friends and colleagues who have been to Nashville all say that the people are very friendly .
Being from St. Louis , Missouri , ” The Show Me state ” , you want to see this first hand how friendly they are .
The travel guides also say that Nashville is one of the up and coming cities to visit this year .
Your parents not only want you to be careful and drive safely , but they also want you to be sure to buy some Moon Pies back with you .
Just what are Moon Pies ?
They’re little cakes shaped like a pie, but instead of a fruit filling , they have marshmallows inside .
They’re mostly covered in chocolate , but you’ll see them in other flavors as well .
You’re going to be adventurous and stay at the Nashville Downtown Hostel , which is close to all the action on the main street in town , Broadway .
You don’t even need to drive around town .
Pretty much everything is within walking distance , including Nissan Stadium , home of the Titans and Bridgestone Arena , home of the Predators .
To get you in the mood for your trip , your nieces and nephews made you a play list of Country Music from singers that you do know .
In a matter
of hours , the skyline of St. Louis , Missouri will be gone , and your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Music City is going to begin .
