Introducing Nashville, the capital of Tennessee, and the capital of Country Music! It’s the home of hot fried chicken and Dolly Parton, and it’s the starting place for legends like Elvis, and Taylor Swift. It’s still as lively as it was back in the 1920’s, so just pull on your boots and get your honky tonk on!
