Country music is the lifeblood of Nashville, home of several landmarks where the greats of the genre have played over the years - and in some cases, continue to play. Musical attractions include the Grand Old Opry, the Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Long before the music gained fame though, Tennessee was already putting together a long and storied history, some of which can be explored at the state Capitol building and the state museum.
