Music City Saturday

Saturday, March 10, 2011 - We spent a beautiful spring afternoon and evening in one of our favorite (and closest) cities today, good ol' Nashville, TN, doing a few things that we had not done before.

We stopped in for a quick visit to the tiny and historic Hatch Show Print Store on Broadway. 
We are big fans of these guys who produce one-of-a-kind, letter-press posters by hand. 
We added a couple more prints to our growing collection included a "Hatch Cats" poster
commemorating the store and its residents felines, as well as, one that points the way for
party-goers that we hope to use as a yearly Christmas decoration.

Next up, we bought tickets for a late afternoon Backstage Tour of the Ryman Auditorium. 
This quick 30-minute tour is quite interesting and kind of cool since each "stop"
is in the performer dressing rooms used in this beautiful, historic building. 
We also got to step briefly on to the stage where we just saw the
amazing Mumford & Sons show earlier in the week
as well as many more great shows over the years.

We capped the day off with dinner and a show at 3rd & Lindsley
The headliners were The Wood Brothers
who we had not really seen or heard of before, but judging by the packed house,
 it was obvious they are popular.  Now, granted, the brothers aren't much to look at,
but they sure can play the blues.  The opening act,
Seth Walker, was pretty good too.  Thanks to our friends,
Ryan and Dawn, for the invitation.
