Destination Deep Dive: Nashville
What was once thought of as the honky-tonk capital is now a modern epicenter for fine dining and celebrity-endorsed high-end shopping. This change has turned Nashville into one of the most popular meetings destinations in the Southeast region. Its transformation over the past few years has opened the doors to more than just country music artists and fans—but a more diverse group of travelers and talent. Take a deeper look into some of Nashville’s renowned tours and venues, where even you can feel like a Nashville star.
Tours and Activities
Life of a Song Tour
Guests will take a short drive to the famous “Music Row,” where they will get to tour Nashville’s historic Studio B; one of the most famous studios in the world. Over 35,000 songs were recorded here by artists such as Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, and even more recently, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood. Hear the stories behind the legendary recordings and view some of the original instruments used in producing over 1,000 hit records on this private guided tour. After touring Studio B, guests will arrive at the Country Music Hall of Fame where they will be treated to a private performance by a local Nashville songwriter.

Exclusive City Tours
Nashville is known for its unique “vehicles”—a Pedal Tavern, Party Barge, Honky Tonk Express, Tractor Wagon, and much more await your guests for experiencing Nashville on the road. Sips and sights anyone?
Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar
Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar is centrally-located right in the heart of Lower Broadway. The massive main level of the venue features a wrap-around mezzanine serving classic country cooking. Custom thematic elements like the “Big Green Tractor” feature bar and a live radio broadcast booth help set the tone of this unique venue. Above the main bar, the “My Kind of Party” rooftop is the largest one in Nashville and features sweeping views of the city.
Grand Ole Opry Show with Circle Room and VIP Tour
Guests will begin the evening by experiencing the Grand Ole Opry’s newest addition—the Circle Room—where they’ll be treated with drinks, appetizers, and a visit from an artist on the show!
Afterwards, guests will take a VIP Behind the Curtain tour of the Grand Ole Opry! There’s nothing like being backstage during a performance at the Opry, and your guests will get to experience it with a VIP Behind-the-Curtain tour!
This exclusive experience includes a private tour of the Opry backstage area just before show time. Guests will learn how each Opry show comes together and spend time in the Green Room just offstage, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Opry. Guests will watch the first performance of the night from the stage before being escorted to their seats.
Mint Springs Farm
Located just 30 minutes south of Nashville in picturesque Williamson County, Mint Springs Farm features a rustic setting perfect for casual and formal affairs. The 40-acre property makes this venue the perfect location for groups of all sizes and tastes.
Ole Smoky Moonshine + Yee-Haw Brewing Company
Ole Smoky Distillery is the leading craft distiller of moonshine and home of the world’s most visited distillery. They’ve expanded their presence in Tennessee by joining forces with Yee-Haw Brewing Company, one of Tennessee’s top craft breweries, to collectively open a complex in Nashville’s burgeoning area of SoBro. The venue, “Mashville,” features a distillery, brewery, bars, tasting areas, beer and bottle shops, merchandise, big screen TVs, and live entertainment. Guests will enjoy moonshine, cocktails, and beer by the glass, food (including White Duck Taco and Nashville’s own Prince’s Hot Chicken), and purchase jars of moonshine and craft bottled beer for enjoyment at home.
Guests have a variety of interactive games and entertainment to choose from on the expansive outdoor patio, including basketball hoops, bocce ball, ping-pong, cornhole boards, giant Jenga, and giant Connect 4. A rooftop expansion is being planned to further enhance the outdoor experience.
