Day 4 – July 1, 2014
My mind is kinda blown right now trying to remember what happened today. I got some pics to remind me but I forgot what happened in between. I’m kinda on EAT, SLEEP, COUNTRY BEAT, REPEAT mode right now.
It was a slow start and sleep in day for Ennis and Keenan. I guess so after all that action last night.
We ventured out and found a wheelchair that my Dad could use throughout the day. Down the street was the Parthenon full size replica. What’s the deal with the South and the connection to Greece? We took in the sight on a quick tour.
Then it was on to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Lots of cool stuffs in there, especially all of Elvis’s gold this and gold that. You name it, if he owned it, it would be covered in gold, just like Goldmember. Goooooooolllld.
Dad got to check out his sweethearts Hall of Fame bust. Not her real bust, but a bronze thingy.
Then I saw mine in there too and they included her bust too.
And here’s Waylon for Waylon.
And some more Waylon. He’s gotta be one of the coolest country music guys.
Except for Johnny Cash of course. We checked out his museum and cool gear too. Here’s his awesome boots.
After a rest break we went searching for dinner. It took us off the beaten path and we ended up away from the touristy trendy areas. It was the kind of neighborhood where you see guys walking around with their malt liquor in a paper bag. We found a nice cafe/restaurant called The Cookery. It had some of the best burgers so far. The cool thing about it, was that the owners train former homeless people as cooks in the kitchen there. Then they are ready to work in the food industry in the city. It seems to work cause they had some awesome food.
Now with our bellies full it was on to….
Tha GRAND OLE OPRY!
The fiddlers impressed the Fiddlers.
Goodnight from this cowboy.
