For a tour of Music City, head to RCA Studio B, where Elvis recorded over 200 of his songs and played the old Steinway piano that still sits in the studio.

Exploring Downtown, you’ll find yourself wandering down Broadway to Legend’s Corner, where the best live acts perform and supersized guitars adorn the street. A new mural was unveiled in 2017, featuring 14 country artists. Look out for a slinky-looking Taylor Swift staring down Dolly Parton.
