Historic and locally owned record shop with an amazing collection of both cds and vinyl, and stepping into the store was like stepping back in time. We found the selections reasonably priced and purchased a couple of albums. Wish we had had more time! We will definitely return!

Great place to stop in when strolling in Nashville. Vinyl there is some, CD's there is a bunch. Some cd's start about $4. Super to look at all the publicity photo's and album covers not to mention the gold record awards. Lots of souvenir stuff too.

This is one of the Coolest Country Music CD places to get great Music. They have great old CD recordings of Classic albums. Take some money as you will be hooked once you start looking. The prices were very reasonable.I think I paid like $4 for a Hank Sr. Cd for my son. Lots of great T shirts pictures and... More

If you are looking for a place to duck into and explore, this is one of those places. Small and not much happening. However we did enjoy the time there.

This is an iconic record store on Broadway. It contains a lot of nostalgia and is worth a visit. There's some touristy stuff, and yes they still sell music. They have a good collection of country on vinyl. Even my 18 year old was excitedly rummaging through the records. Good place to visit to see it.
