ake a walk through the historic, mythical and trailblazing career of Virginia Patterson Hensley, better known to the world as the iconic Patsy Cline. Nashville’s newest museum houses the largest collection of Patsy Cline artifacts in the world. Locked away for over 50 years, personal artifacts, letters, photographs, costumes, clothing, and household furnishings from her Nashville dream house help to pay homage to Cline’s storied personal and professional life. Patsy Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley of humble beginnings and began to experience a career that was about to launch her into superstardom until it was ended too early due to the tragic plane crash that took her life in 1963. Patsy landed her first recording contract with Four Star Records in 1955, but saw her biggest success when signing with Decca Records, which released her debut project in 1957. In her five and a half year charting career, she scored hits like Walkin’ After Midnight, I Fall to Pieces, Crazy, She’s Got You, Leavin’ On Your Mind, So Wrong and many others. Patsy Cline became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1960 and broke many ceilings for women. She was the first female to receive headline billing over her male tour-mates and the first female to not only anchor a Las Vegas Casino, but also to perform at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Despite all these accomplishments and the amazing fact that she has impacted generations of fans more than

50 years after her passing, fans had previously never had a museum to visit to honor her legacy. The opening of the Patsy Cline Museum represents this opportunity for fans, in the very town whose sound she was so influential in creating. Another exciting first for fans is the opportunity to purchase licensed apparel and collectables; never before available. Guests will travel back to her humble beginnings in Winchester, VA and see family photos, possessions and even the very booth she waitressed as a teenager at Gaunt’s Drugstore. Never-before-seen costumes that exhibit her transition from western cowgirl to torch singing headliner will also be on display. Many of the costumes exhibited are creations designed and sewn by her mother, Hilda. Guests will have the unique opportunity to step inside Patsy’s famed Rec Room, where many famous entertainers dropped in to jam and party in the dream home Patsy purchased on Nella Drive in Goodlettsville, TN. The room contains original furnishings owned and used by Cline and her husband Charlie Dick. A vintage jukebox broadcasts her mega- hit “Crazy,” highlighting its distinction as the most programmed jukebox song of all time. A bio film documents Patsy’s career and is hosted by noted actress Beverly D’Angelo, who played the role of Patsy Cline in the 1980 film “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” D’Angelo was nominated for a Golden Globe award for her role in the film. Located at 119 Third Avenue South, the Patsy Cline Museum is located on the second level of the building which houses the world renowned Johnny Cash Museum. Guests are educated and entertained via cutting-edge audio and touch screen technology featuring Cline’s numerous audio and video performances. The museum is open daily from 9 AM – 7 PM CT. For more information, visit: and January/February 2018



105 Third Avenue South





t’s no secret that many of the biggest stars in Nashville’s music history got their start at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis; the original address of Sun Records. Such legendary performers as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and even Conway Twitty passed through the historic studios of Sam Phillips throughout their careers. That legacy is celebrated at the Sun Diner located at 105 Third Ave. S in downtown Nashville. The diner serves as a tribute to the music that came from Phillips’ studio. “The musical histories of Nashville and Memphis are forever intertwined with each other, with so many artists beginning their career at Sun before taking their music to Nashville – and all over the world,” said Adam Hesler, President of TC Restaurant Group, the company which owns the establishment and hopes to continue the tribute to Sun Records in cities across the country. Continuing with the theme of making history, Sun Diner is Nashville’s first 24-hour restaurant to be located in the downtown area of Music City. “We are excited about being Nashville’s first 24-hour diner to open, especially right off of Broadway in the heart

of the Honky Tonk district,” says TC’s Hesler. “Because of the uniqueness of our always being open, we serve a wide variety of dishes – ranging from dinner to breakfast – for those going home after a night on Broadway, or for those about to start their day downtown.” The restaurant is a hot destination for tourists – and locals – who are looking for one last taste of southern hospitality during the early morning hours. The menu at the Sun Diner will most definitely take on a Memphis flavor with such listings as the “Love Me” Tenders – named after the classic Presley hit, as well as the “Cry, Cry, Cry” Hot Wings – with its name taken from the first major hit record from “The Man In Black.” Among the entrees include the “Million Dollar Quartet,” with its moniker taken from the iconic December 1956 session at the label with Presley, Lewis, Cash, and Carl Perkins. Consumers will get to pick their choice of four items among such delicious fare as Crispy Bacon, Sausage Patty, Chef Thomas’ Hash Browns, Cage-free organic eggs any style, Pancake, Waffle, and Granola Parfait.

In 1912, in a copper kettle at the Standard Candy Company at Clark & First Avenue in Nashville, Tennessee, the first combination candy bar was invented. A roundish mound of luscious caramel, creamy marshmallow nougat and fresh roasted peanuts all covered in real milk chocolate, the Goo Goo Cluster has been delighting Nashvillians and visitors to Music City ever since. In the early days, Goo Goo Clusters were hand dipped and sold without wrappers under glass at drug store candy counters. With the dawn of hand wrapping, a team of ladies was responsible for swaddling the Goo Goo Clusters in tin foil before they were sold. Eventually, machinery was put in place to automate wrapping the candy. Today, the process is so streamlined that Standard Candy Company can produce 20,000 clusters in one hour! In addition to the Original Goo Goo Cluster, the product is also available in two other varieties: the Supreme, which replaces peanuts with pecans, and the Peanut Butter, a peanut butter center sprinkled with crunchy peanuts then covered in real milk chocolate. In recent years, the flagship Goo Goo Shop and Dessert Bar opened in the SoBro area of downtown Nashville. This retail store and cafe gives visitors the opportunity to walk through history as they peruse a 100+ year timeline complete with artifacts from the Goo Goo archives, feast their eyes upon Premium Goo Goos being made by hand in a glassed-encased confectionery kitchen, and satisfy their sweet tooth with delicious baked treats, gourmet confections, and ice cream. The most recent addition to the Goo Goo Shop is “Goo Goo U”, where visitors are able to get a sweet education while participating in hands-on experiences. Guests can choose from various class formats that include making their own Premium Goo Goo, learning secret recipes from the Goo Goo kitchen, or tasting their way through a chocolate and wine pairing.

Nudie didn’t stop at clothing. He also customized automobiles, installing silver-dollar dashboards, pistol

door handles and gear shifts, extending rear bumpers and trimming vehicles with longhorn steer horns as hood ornaments.

moonshine attractions

Come Taste Grandpa Smith’s Flavored Moonshine


mith Creek Distillery is an authentic moonshine tasting attraction located in Nashville, Tennessee at Opry Mills. Tourists from multiple states travel to experience our down-home party in a jar. Smith Creek’s flavored moonshine still has the old-fashioned taste that mountain folk once enjoyed, sitting on their front porches, strumming a banjo or playing the guitar, while singing with joy and swigging from a jug in between songs. Just like Grandpa’s front porch, our distilleries are family friendly!

bartenders enthusiastically explain the history behind each flavor. And there are plenty from which to choose. Flavors like Straight White Lightnin’, Apple Pie, Salted Caramel, Coffee, Cinnamon, Peach, and Sweet Tea are a few flavors on the free-tasting menu. The wide variety gives our guests a complete moonshine-tasting experience, unlike any other, which offers them an opportunity to discover their favorite flavor before heading home with a few jars. In addition to the free tasting bar, Smith Creek Distillery also features a large retail store where guests can purchase bottled moonshines, apparel, jams, sauces, dry rubs, scented candles and more. So come on down and visit Smith Creek Distillery. Stroll through the covered bridge. Hear the crickets chirping next to the ole mill. See Grandpa’s truck run amuck in Smith Creek. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample some shine and enjoy a great time at Smith Creek Distillery in Opry Mills!

The recipe for moonshine is simply made from a base of corn, sugar, yeast and water. However, we took this legendary recipe to a whole new level by adding the special twist of different flavors, sometimes smooth, sometimes bold, but flavors that are always distinct. The term moonshine comes from the fact that the mountain folk did their distilling in the darkness, with the moon as their only source of light. Because of their late night activities, the term moonshine became associated solely with the spirits these moonshiners made. Our first of three locations was launched in Branson, Missouri in 2015 quickly followed in 2016 by our Pigeon Forge, TN store situated in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Our third store is now open for business in the Opry Mills Mall, neighbor to Nashville’s historic Grand Ole Opry. At the heart of the Smith Creek Distillery experience is the opportunity to sample multiple flavors of moonshine at our free sample tasting bar. Eager to answer all questions, our

Luke Bryan had his figure on stage at the 2017 ACM Awards and pulled a little trick on co-host, Dirks Bentley. Trisha Yearwood served as our host for Grand Opening and revealed her gorgeous wax look-a-like here in the attraction with hundreds of fans and media present. And most recently, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill met their wax twins backstage when they brought their 2017 Soul2Soul tour home to Nashville on August 5th, 2017. The unrivaled craftsmanship of each figure is truly an experience not to be missed. Each Madame Tussauds figure is a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months of extensive research and take more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds’ legacy. To stay apprised of all Madame Tussauds Nashville happenings, connect with the attraction on social media and on their website:

Bavarian Bierhaus brings a taste of Germany to Music City!


here is certainly no shortage of places to grab a beer in Nashville, a city where honky-tonks and craft beer taverns abound. But when it comes to getting an authentic German bier in a warm, friendly, Oktoberfest atmosphere, there is only one place to go – Bavarian Bierhaus! Bavarian Bierhaus opened in April 2017 at Opry Mills, Middle Tennessee’s largest destination shopping center, and is directly across the street from the famous Grand Ole Opry and the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. Only 10 miles from downtown Nashville, the 15,000-square-foot massive bierhall offers the fun, excitement and culture of Bavaria right here in Music City. The bierhall has 500 seats inside and 120 more seats in the biergarten outside, as well as a large private dining room that can hold up to 100 guests. There are 12 large TVs scattered throughout the restaurant and bar area, so guests can cheer on their favorite sports teams. Not only is Bavarian Bierhaus a great place to catch a game, it’s also a live music venue featuring authentic German bands from right here in Nashville and across the country. Patrons are encouraged to get up and dance on the benches and swing their steins back and forth as in a true Munich bierhall. There is nothing like this experience elsewhere in Nashville! Guests come to the Bavarian Bierhaus for more than just the entertainment – they come for the bier and the authentic Bavarian cuisine. Patrons can enjoy 12 biers on tap imported from Bavaria and various German-brewed bottles. Biers can be enjoyed as a flight or a stein along with delicious authentic cuisine. Menu items include a range of items, from appetizers to soups and salads, to a variety of sausages from Milwaukee’s Usinger Sausage company, to schnitzels. The family-friendly restaurant also offers a children’s menu. Now, Nashville locals and guests are treated to Bavarian delicacies that are hard to come by in this region. Menu sampling: • Giant Imported Pretzels With Sweet Mustard (or try the bier cheese spread!) • Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes) • Hot Bacon Spinach Salat • Bavarian Onion Soup • Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich • Reuben • Currywurst • Schnitzel (pork or chicken)

• Oktoberfest Chicken • Schweinshaxe (roasted crisp pork shank) • Pretzel Pudding • Apfelstrudel (apple strudel) • Black Forest Cake This October, visit Bavarian Bierhaus for an authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest! The festivities will kick off Sept. 29–Oct. 1 with a German Car Show and Brunch, live music from German bands, and a Biergarten, provided by Paulaner. The celebration will continue all month long with special events, food and bier specials, live music, and more through Oct. 29. Stay up-to-date on the latest event details by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and visiting

Don’t miss the opportunity to try this new destination for fun for the whole family in Music City. Find the Bavarian Bierhaus at 121 Opry Mills Drive, Nashville, Tenn.

he cooler weather offers an exceptional experience at Nashville Zoo. This is the Zoo’s least busy time of the year offering opportunities for quiet walks along pathways and special glimpses at animals that may be more active in the cooler environment. Many of the Zoo’s animals are very comfortable in our Middle Tennessee environment and can be seen throughout our hours of 9 a.m. – 4 Photograhy by Aimee Stubbs p.m. Additionally, the Unseen New World offers indoor viewing of a wide array of reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects. Please note the Zoo’s temperature guidelines below. If you’re hoping to see a particular animal during your visit, we recommend contacting the Zoo in advance to see if it will be available for viewing. Zoo Temperature Guidelines BELOW 55°F – When conditions are in this temperature range, animal keepers will look at other conditions. Is it sunny? Is there a cold or warm wind? How old is the animal? These conditions will determine if and how long primates, giraffes, ring-tailed lemurs and tropical birds (including lorikeets) will be outside. BELOW 40°F – Kangaroos, rhinos and most primates will not be on exhibit if it is 40°F or below. Other conditions, such as wind and precipitation, may cause our keepers to bring the kangaroos inside before the temperature drops to 40°F. BELOW 30°F – In addition to the animals listed above, red river hogs, clouded leopards and other birds may be inside or have access to their inside areas during the day. It is also important to note that on days of extreme cold, even Photograhy by Aimee Stubbs the most cold-tolerant species will have access to their heated indoor holdings and may not be seen. The Zoo’s alligator exhibit, The Shell Station (tortoise exhibit) and Historic Home tours will be closed during the winter 32 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

season. Animal shows are also suspended until spring. Concessions and Rides The Zoo’s indoor restaurant, Zoofari Café is open year-round. All other concession and snack stands are opened based on weather conditions and attendance. The Zoo will make daily decisions about operating the Wild Animal Carousel, Soaring Eagle zip line and Wilderness Express train. Weather permitting, all rides will open at 10am. Please ask a guest services employee about ride availability. The Zoo is Growing! We are busy expanding our parking lot and creating two exhibits at Nashville Zoo. Both exhibits Photograhy by Quentin Thompson are currently planned to open in the spring. Please pardon our mess and understand that some trails may be closed during this process. EXPEDITION PERU: TREK OF THE ANDEAN BEAR Once complete, “Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear” will feature multiple species, ensuring this as one of the most popular destinations within the park. In addition to Andean bears, guests will also be able to see fresh water stingrays, pudu, and guinea pigs. TIGER EXHIBIT This renovation marks major improvements to the existing exhibit including an enlarged habitat for three Sumatran tigers, and a new indoor viewing area for guests. In addition, the outdoor bridge viewing area will be renovated to visually mirror Sumatran architecture.

A smiling, friendly waitress took our beverage order and directed us to the buffet table. There we found a lovely salad bar and a first-class buffet with country fried chicken and ribs as their entrees that night, complete with all the fixins’. Everything was homemade right down to the peach cobbler for dessert. I had the warm feeling of being in my grandma’s kitchen. Once the entertainment starts, I guarantee you will be dancing in your seat.

DIDYOUKNOW? DID YOU KNOW… The amount on the price tag on Minnie Pearl’s hat was $1.98. The Centerville native and Grand Ole Opry star would eventually buy a home next door to the Governor’s Mansion on Curtiswood Lane in Nashville. DID YOU KNOW… That President Theodore Roosevelt coined the phrase “good to the last drop”, words that became a national slogan, after sipping coffee at Maxwell House Hotel. The coffee was a local product of the Cheek family. Their family home is now Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville’s Athena Parthenos is the tallest indoor sculpture in the Western world. She stands an impressive 42 feet high in the temple of the Parthenon. DID YOU KNOW… Elvis recorded more than 200 of his songs at RCA’s Historic Studio B on Music Row. The red, blue and green lights found in the studio are a remnant from one of Elvis’s Christmas albums. Unable to get in the holiday spirit while recording in July, he was having trouble finishing the album. The crew solved the problem by installing holiday-colored lights, putting up an artificial Christmas tree in the corner and cranking the air conditioner up as high as it would go to create the festive atmosphere. DID YOU KNOW… Country singer Randy Travis was a cook and dishwasher at the Nashville Palace before he made it big. 64 getaway nashville and middle tennessee

DID YOU KNOW… Belle Meade Plantation was famous for breeding thoroughbred horses. Iroquois, bred at the Belle Meade Farm, was the first American horse to win the English Derby. In addition to Iroquois, there were two other famous horses that can trace their lineage back to Belle Meade: Seabiscuit and War Admiral, both made popular again by the 2011 best-selling novel. For generations removed, the 1930’s horses were descendents of the sires of Bonnie Scotland, Belle Meade’s prize horse, making the family rivalry at the Plantation run deep. DID YOU KNOW… In 1941, Nashville was granted the first FM license in the United States. Music City then became the first to enjoy static-free radio. DID YOU KNOW… The Frist Center for Visual Arts is located in what was formerly Nashville’s main post office, a city landmark, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The Center went to great lengths to preserve the historical integrity of the building, as the building itself is a work of art. DID YOU KNOW… African-American artist and native Nashvillan Will Edmonson was the first black to be honored with a one-man exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Edmonson, the son of former slaves, created primitive limestone carvings of animals, angels, Biblical characters, and even celebrities. A photo spread of his work in Harper’s Bazaar led to the historic 1937 exhibit in New York City. Today, his works are on display at Cheekwood.

DID YOU KNOW… Nashville was founded on Christmas Eve 1779 along the banks of the Cumberland River. Two teams of pioneers set forth from the Carolinas to found the new city. Upon arrival, they immediately began building Fort Nashborough. Among the pioneers was Rachel Donelson, who would later become the wife of Andrew Jackson. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage: Home of President Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States, boasts a driveway in the shape of a guitar. Legend says that the driveway was so shaped to please his daughter-in-law Emily. Nashvillians like to think it was a good sign of things to come. DID YOU KNOW… Standard Candy Company, founded in 1901, created the GooGoo, a true Nashville delight marrying peanuts, caramel, marshmallow and milk chocolate together for a tasty cluster of candy. Today Standard Candy Company uses more than 3 million pounds of chocolate a year. Legend has it that GOO stands for Grand Ole Opry. DID YOU KNOW… After a May 1885 sermon given by the Reverend Sam Jones at a tent revival, Captain Tom Ryman became an instant convert and immediately began raising funds to build a church. Upon his death in 1904, the church he built as the Union Gospel Tabernacle, was renamed in his honor - Ryman Auditorium. The iconic venue would later host such performers as Enrico Caruso, Katharine Hepburn, and Bob Hope, as well as the Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974. Not surprisingly, in 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2011, the Ryman was named Theatre of the Year by Pollstar Magazine. Today, the Ryman is open for tours during the day and for concerts by artists of all genres at night.

DID YOU KNOW… Oprah Winfrey was raised in Nashville by her father Vernon Winfrey. While a sophomore at Tennessee State University (TSU), she was hired as a news anchor at WTVF-TV/News Channel 5, making her the first female and first African American in Nashville to hold such a job. DID YOU KNOW… That the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is an architectural wonder in itself? One side of the building is a RKO-style radio tower while the main building, with windows resembling a piano keyboard, ends in a Cadillac tailfin-style flourish. DID YOU KNOW… President Richard Nixon was onstage when the Grand Ole Opry broadcast its first show in the new Opry House in 1974. The former President played “God Bless America” on the piano and Roy Acuff showed him how to yo-yo. DID YOU KNOW… Nashville is known the world over as “Music City” because WSM radio announcer David Cobb referred to Nashville with that nickname in 1950 on Red Foley’s NBC radio broadcast. DID YOU KNOW… The Hermitage Hotel which has hosted several political and entertainment figures including John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Al Capone since it opened its doors in 1910 is the only Five-Star, Five Diamond property in the state of Tennessee.
