In Nashville, we went to the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium (Opryland was closed for renovations due to flooding).  A few of the acts were worth the price of admission but overall, it was kind of a big yawn.  I guess I was expecting something more from an American institution.

It was kind of like going to church. Hard wooden pews and all.

But one of the highlights of our trip was the Americana Music Festival.  We were lucky enough to attend the Music City Roots at the Loveless Cafe (really good biscuits too) to see some fine musicians play.
