Country Music Hall of Fame

Bev and I spent most of today touring the CMHF.

If you're ever in Nashville, this is a must see, even if you don't like country music. Don't forget that Rock and Roll started out as a blend of blues and country. Elvis was a country singer long before he became the "King of Rock and Roll."

Beatles/George Harrison fans will be interested in the guitars pictured here. All the way to the left is the original Country Gentleman guitar, built to order by Gretsch for Chet Atkins in the 1950's. When the Beatles first hit the big time, it was this model of guitar that was favored by George. All the early Beatles pictures show George holding this particular model. The one pictured here is the original.
