Learn about the untold tales, legends, and true stories of Nashville during the Nashville Unpublished Walking Tour of Lower Broadway.

While other tours glorify the heroes, Southern Belles, romance, and civility of the area, this 90-minute tour will give you both sides of the story, including stories of villains, tragedy, war, and brothels, offering proof that truth is often more interesting than fiction. Hear the naughty and the nice tales about Nashville's great streets, buildings, songs, events, and people that have made the city known throughout the world. Listen to stories about Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Andrew Jackson, Granny White, and Fannie Battle, a woman arrested by the Union Army for compromising their soldiers and the Army's secrets at the same time.

Take a short walk through the city's most famous district and into some of its most historic buildings. See the Hatch Show Print Shop, Ernest Tubb Records, and The Silver Dollar Saloon, and spend some time in Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, which is now celebrating over 50 years of hosting great songwriters and musicians like Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline, Charley Pride, and more recently, Kid Rock.

Then, head to your behind-the-scenes tour of the Ryman Auditorium, known as the Mother Church of Country Music, and you will hear stories of Nashville's modern folk heroes of music, including Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, Tootsie Bess, and many, many more! Hear the fascinating backstage stories of the famed radio show that helped make country music and Nashville what it is today.

In addition to all of the true, untold stories of Music City, you will also hear grim ghost and skeleton tales surrounding Nashville as you walk past notable sites and landmarks.

Our tour guide was very informative, and we enjoyed seeing the ryman and the old printing press shop. The walk away was enjoyable and worth the time.

We did the 'trolly tour' and enjoyed that, but we then did the walking tour with jill! We had a great time and she certainly knows her stuff! We'd certainly recommend the walking tour to anyone visiting nashville. We'd do it all again.
