A Few Pics From Nashville

posted by randy mccarten - 

We took a quick weekend trip to Nashville for a wedding.  Most of our time was spent on wedding stuff but we did get to The Opryland Hotel, the Honky Tonk Highway (about 5 blocks of nothing but bars with bands playing & places you can buy cowboy boots & hats)  & the most important...the Antique Archaeology store.  You know place where Frank & Mike leave some of their stuff from the History Channel's American Picker's show.

It's in a big old car factor from the early 1900s.  I thought they were the only store there but it's kind of part mall of all these unique shops & part museum with old machines from the factory.  Pretty cool if you are ever in Nashville.

I had to take this pic in the store.  Pretty sure it was required by law

A lot of the items were "not for sale".  Like this guitar & jacket from Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen.  I remember seeing the episode!

We also got to stop at the Opryland Hotel.  It's huge with all kinds of gardens, fountains & waterfalls.  Think of the Desmond times about 1000.  There was even a river you could take a boat ride on.  

There is also a legendary radio station there so I had to take this pic.  Wheel of Fortune's Pat Sajak was one of their DJs.  Who knew?
