If you are looking for a place to duck into and explore, this is one of those places. Small and not much happening. However we did enjoy the time there.

Mainly just a store for the history and music lover. You can really tell the history by walking in this place

This is an iconic record store on Broadway. It contains a lot of nostalgia and is worth a visit. There's some touristy stuff, and yes they still sell music. They have a good collection of country on vinyl. Even my 18 year old was excitedly rummaging through the records. Good place to visit to see it.

For an Old Style Person !! Interesting to look through the displays & memorabilia and Ernest Tubb was a legend in his day ! Great to see Vinyl making a return and while I didn't purchase I did take a boot full of memories with me !! Well worth a look see while strolling Broadway I reckon ?

It was so great to visit an independent music store. They had anything and everything country music in here. Mostly CD format but a good selection of vinyl to choose from also. A must visit when in Nashville

Bought our kids vintage record players for Christmas so thought we'd stop here to find some cool records. Worker at register was rude then we were ignored three times by guy working the floor. Store wasn't well put together. Big let down! Took our money elsewhere.
