By Jan Duke:
Exploring Music City U.S.A and finding the many unique and exciting things that the Middle Tennessee Area has to offer is one of my favorite things to do.
My hope is to endear Nashville visitors and residents alike to let me humbly show and guide them through every aspect of what this great city has to offer, whether you are visiting for a day or a lifetime.
