America at Its Best, Tennessee

After we left Tupelo, from our Mississippi Blues Trail trip, we ventured to Tennessee to spend a few nights in Memphis and Nashville.  A couple years ago we went to Memphis so we were excited to come back and hang out at some of our favorite spots on Beale Street.  It seems only appropriate to go to BB King's Blues Club first. 
Performing on stage was The Will Tucker Band.  They are the house band and the lead singer, Will, is only 17 years old.  He actually started performing at BB King's club at age 14 and has opened for many blues legends.  He definitely has a lot of talent, especially on the guitar, and I am sure we will hear his name nationally in the future!
Another one of our favorites is Rum Boogie Cafe.
Got lucky and had a beautiful day to walk around downtown.
A very decked out carriage!
 Beale Street!!
 Our last night so hitting all the hot spots.
Before heading to Nashville we stopped at Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken.  Hands down the best fried chicken both of us have had and we will definitely be going back!

 Arrived to Nashville and headed to Morton's Steakhouse to watch the Saints vs. Loins game.  Scott and I love hanging out at their bar and I love their martini's!  While we were sitting at the bar, three of the Tennessee Titans came in from their game so we got to talk with them which was pretty cool.  

The next day we headed out of the city to see the Grand Ole Opry and
Opryland Hotel.  
 The Opryland Hotel was absolutely beautiful and in full Christmas spirit!
Although cheesy I wanted to see Cooter's Place which is all memorabilia from the Dukes of Hazard.  
 Unfortunately we had horrible weather so we decided to head to the Lane Motor Museum which features the largest European collections of cars and motorcycles in the United States.  A pretty amazing exhibit!
 This is one small car!!

 Had a great lunch at Hog Heaven where they are known for their white BBQ sauce.  It was so good we bought a bottle to take home.
Scott ordering our food. 

 Before heading home after a wonderful two week road trip from New Orleans, through Mississippi, Memphis and Nashville we stopped at The Loveless Cafe.   Famous for their fried chicken, country ham, homemade preserves and biscuits (they make around 6,000 a day).  Another incredible meal!
