Wildhorse Saloon

If you watch CMT or like country music, you are probably familiar with The Wildhorse Saloon.  While known as a country-music lover's dream, the Wildhorse hosts musical artists of all kinds.  Ringo Starr appeared there last Sunday, and Pat Benatar, Hootie & the Blowfish and Kenny Loggins perform in the next month or so.  If you really want fun, you can take part in their Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camp next month!

Opened in 1994, the Wildhorse has three levels and over 65,000 square feet of space.  In addition to the dance floor, visitors will also find a restaurant, bar, TV studio and concert site.  Over 1,000,000 people visit the saloon annually.  

I've lived here 13 years and have never been inside the place.  I guess that's what happens when one lives so close to something, no?

I went inside once, in 1996 when there was still a daily "live" TV show on the old Nashville Network. A radio friend took me there. My Nashville moment: sitting in the DJ booth talking with singer/songwriter Victoria Shaw (who wrote hit songs for Garth Brooks and others) while watching singer Steve Wariner perform on stage. You have to go in some time; a cool place no matter what genre of music is performing.
