“music row”(29 reviews)
“idle hour”(6 reviews)
An intimate listening room experience on a comfortable tour bus. Great sound, lights, and singer songwriters playing their hits live as you learn what makes Music City sing.
Suggested duration: 2-3 hours

What an amazing experience this tour was. Had the pleasure of getting the owner/songwriter/ on the tour. Trey Bruce was fascinating and really interesting. And the young talent he has featured was also fantastic. Highly recommend this tour.
