A Post from Music City

Leave a comment

It began as soon as we get off the plane.  Over the loudspeaker was the voice of George Strait welcoming us to Nashville.  Oh my, I thought, I’m going to leave this city loving – or hating – country music.  It’s only been one day and so far, so good.  Yesterday, we visited Ernest Tubb’s Record Shop (a landmark for country music fans) and, naturally, a book store. The store, BookMan/BookWoman is a used bookstore near the Vanderbilt University campus. We had read about it before arriving in Nashville and it did not disappoint. As soon as we walked in the door, it was easy to see why BookMan/BookWoman is consistently voted Nashville’s best used bookstore.  Clearly the husband and wife owners are passionate book people, and with true southern hospitality, the staff members could not have been more helpful.

With the country music soundtrack never far away, we will continue our adventures today.
