Week O' Fun - Day 4

Willie Nelson & Family General Store and Museum:
We stumbled upon this place today which is located across from the Opryland Hotel.  Billy is actually a big Willie Nelson fan, but we decided not to pay $8 to enter the "museum".  I think it's kind of weird to have a whole museum for someone who is still alive.  Don't you?

We did get our picture with some celebs while we were there.  Including the owner himself.

Cooter's Duke's of Hazzard Museum:
Hahaha!  Cooter's is next door to Willie's place.  It would be a great tourist stop if you were a Duke's of Hazzard fan.  IF.  We had to go in, though, since we were right there.  Tons of toys, photos, and of course...Daisy Dukes. 

 "What is this junk and why are we here?!"

We drove by to check on the Opry progress.  Lookin' good!

Loveless Cafe:  
Loveless is about a 35 minute drive away from where we live.  It's been a Nashville favorite for over 50 years.  Click here to read a history of The Loveless.

Our friends Erin and Zac joined us for the fun.  They have lived in Nashville several years but this was their first trip to Loveless, too!

The Loveless is known for its biscuits and they do not disappoint.  Good thing I wore a dress that's like a tent, because I ate 4.  The rest of the home cookin' style food was really good.  Honestly, though...Puckett's fried chicken is still #1 in my opinion.

Behind the restaurant is the "Loveless Barn".  And in the Barn, Starship was playing live!  As in..."We Built This City on Rock and Roll" and "Nothin's Gonna Stop Us Now."  Classic.

Stay tuned for more fun!
