Nashville honky-tonks and the Nashville Experience

Everyone thinks of our honky-tonks when they think of Nashville and that's for a good reason. There is a good bit of history that ties Nashville's music legends to the honky-tonks. Back when Tootsie's Orchid Lounge was called Mom's and "Tootsie" bought it in 1960. So many legends worked there singing or drinking as they struggled to make it in the music business.

Tootsie's is the most famous of all the honky-tonks but there are some other ones on the same strip that carry as much weight. Robert's Western World, Legend's Corner, The Stage, Bluegrass Inn, Rippy's and more. Each one has it's own style and flair so be sure to visit each one and see which one is right for you. Sometimes the music is mediocre but days and nights it is some really great music. These are some of the best places to hear up and coming as well as some established artists.
