Dubbed as the Country Music Capital of the world, Nashville, which is also the capital city of the state of Tennessee,  is being thronged by country music singer wannabes in hopes of landing a music record deal. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is one of its main attractions.

Interestingly:

    • Andrew Jackson (1829-1837)
    • James K. Polk (1845-1849)
    • Andrew Johnson (1865-1869, the first president to be impeached)
    • Al Gore (VP, 1993-2001)
  2. Elvis Presley recorded more than 200 songs in the historic RCA Studio B in Nashville; and,
  3. Oprah Winfrey got her start in television as the first African-American female news anchor at Nashville’s WLAC-TV.

The Riverfront Park (as seen in the postcard ) is the site of Nashville’s first settlement. Most of the city’s  celebration are held here which includes the 4th of July.
