Head to Music City with Special Journeys where we will immerse ourselves in everything Nashville!  So, make sure you pack your cowboy boots and get ready for a good time, y’all!

Our trip to Music City begins with a ride on the General Jackson Showboat. This 300-foot paddlewheel showboat will cruise along the Cumberland River offering beautiful views of the Nashville skyline. We will enjoy a delicious buffet meal and a wonderful music show giving tribute to some of the best country artists in the business while aboard.

Our next stop in Nashville will be to immerse ourselves in everything Johnny Cash! The Johnny Cash Museum is filled with the largest collection of memorabilia and artifacts from Johnny’s life. There are over 25 of his famous costumes, handwritten notes, and some of June Carter’s items as well.  This special museum was curated with the help of Johnny’s family, so it’s a truly remarkable experience that is a must-see while in Music City.

The classic country music tour doesn’t stop there!  Next, we will journey upstairs to the Patsy Cline Museum! You can watch a short film about Patsy Cline, view her personal artifacts and letters, as well as her iconic outfits.  You will learn about her humble beginnings and follow along on her rise to stardom.

No tour of Nashville would be complete without stopping in and seeing a show at the Grand Ole Opry Theater! THE Grand Old Opry, which is a music venue dedicated to honoring country music and its history and where we can enjoy some great country music. If you’re a fan of country, we know you’ve heard of the Opry, which has been a staple of Nashville for decades. This is the place that ‘made country music famous’ after all!  The biggest names in country music have played here, such as Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Garth Brooks, and so many more.  While the exact line up for the date of our visit has not been announced yet, it promises to be an amazing show with great country music!

Travelers will depart/return at a convenient meeting spot in Austin, Temple, Waco and Lewisville, Texas.
