Start out your New Year’s Eve celebrations with country music traditions that go back over 85 years at the Grand Ole Opry. It’s a great way to not only celebrate the present and upcoming year but to honor the past of the country music that has made Nashville famous. The final lineup for this special New Year’s Eve show will not be released until the Wednesday before the performance, but you can be certain that between the Grand Ole Opry’s traditions and the many country performers who love to perform on the legendary stage, it will be a night to remember!
While you’re in Nashville celebrating the arrival of 2011, make sure that you continue to honor the past with a visit to the legendary Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This museum has memorabilia, rare recordings, costumes, and both the gold and platinum records of all the country music greats throughout history ranging from Elvis Presley to Hank Williams. The museum is so large that it covers an entire city block of downtown Nashville. There is something for everyone who visits whether they are a fan of bluegrass or gospel. If it’s country you love, you’re going to be thrilled at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Of course, you can’t focus only on country music while you’re in Nashville because the city has many other activities and attractions to offer. Take the Discover Nashville Tour to get a comprehensive overview of the city. This tour will include views and information about historic downtown, the Tennessee State Capitol, Music Row, Studio B, and the Ryman Auditorium. It’s an especially nice tour for those with a limited amount of time available to experience Nashville.
