NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A local bus tour promises to take you inside the city that is behind the drama on ABC's hit show "Nashville."
Jim McMillan gives the tours throughout Music City that allow participants to see all the real locations where the show is filmed.
From the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge to the Musica statue in Midtown, fans get to see where it all happens.
In order to give the tours, McMillan has to keep up with "Nashville," too. He highlights particular scenes at each location, mapping the drama to the city.
"As soon as we opened up the tour, it sold out," said Kate Kleinrock, Gray Line's retail sales division manager.
One of the most popular stops for fans is the Bluebird Café. Those from out of town have seen how most characters spend time at the historic café, but didn't know what it was all about until they took the tour.
The Gray Line tour lasts three and a half hours and costs $45 per person. You can purchase tickets on their Web site.
The Tennessee Theatre, a jewel of historic Knoxville, is in the heart of downtown. The theatre, known as "Knoxville's Grand Entertainment Palace" is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.More >>
