The Songwriter’s Dream Day | Nashville Staycation

Today marks the twelfth day of our Nashville Staycation series! In this series we are giving readers a planned themed day out on the town to escape from your jobs, but not spend too much money by going on a vacation.

Today’s theme is The Songwriter’s Dream Day. This theme is designed to take every aspiring songwriter around to the spots he or she has dreamed about in Nashville.
