Our first-ever Tauck Event in Nashville takes you into the great big heart of country music.

Welcome to the Nashville Country Music Event

Spend five days basking in the sounds, personalities, and the great big heart of country music during our Event based on the newest Ken Burns film, debuting September 2019. Stay four nights in the center of the music world at the Hilton Nashville Downtown, the starting point for our daily small group sightseeing tracks – The Roots of Country, The Evolution of Country, and Music City.

Writer-filmmaker Dayton Duncan hosts this exploration of the ways in which country music has changed over the decades even as it speaks to all generations today.  In the heart of old Nashville, soak in the stories and melodies at Ryman Auditorium, the Patsy Cline Museum, and at a Grand Ole Opry live radio performance. On a private tour of RCA Studio B, enter a special place where Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and other musical giants recorded hits. Revel in exclusive private performances by Grammy Award-winning performers and members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame… a gala evening at the Country Music Hall of Fame just for Tauck… and private talks with industry movers and shakers. Here in the music capital of America, artists of every kind found a home; the sounds of classical, jazz, pop, sacred music, among many genres, continue to fill the air. We invite you to listen with us. Read Less

Attend a private live recording session on Music Row

Once a musical home of Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers, Music Row has nurtured hundreds of illustrious artists, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson among them.

Come inside a studio for rare access to a genuine live recording session of a new song by some of Music Row’s most prolific songwriters. This is a unique opportunity for Tauck guests only to meet these gifted musicians. Experience the art of music making and the science of recording as it happens, as these dedicated colleagues work to create something beautiful. You might be the first to hear tomorrow’s next big hit.

Our local guide introduces you to Ryman Auditorium

In this building born from the revival tent of a fiery evangelist in the 19th century, anything is possible: a soul can find redemption, a crumbling institution can find salvation, and an unknown kid with a guitar can find his or her name in lights.

Part performance venue, part museum, Ryman Auditorium is 100% cultural icon. Over the years it has hosted traveling acts including John Philip Sousa, Roy Rogers, Harry Houdini, Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields, Katharine Hepburn, Bob Hope, and Mae West. Even President Theodore Roosevelt made an appearance here. Artists from all corners of the globe and entertainment genres – from Elvis to Emmylou Harris, Paul Simon to the Pixies, and Kings of Leon to B.B. King – have been drawn by the history of this place and its place in our shared history. Discover it.

Spend an evening with the greats at the Country Music Hall of Fame

Our gala evening begins in the Rotunda of the Country Music Hall of Fame with you surrounded by the legends of the industry; each one is recognized with a plaque and together they tell a story bigger than just one artist.

The words “The Circle Will Be Unbroken” are emblazoned on high, establishing and perpetuating a warm and welcoming tone just like country music itself. As you sip cocktails and nibble canapés, the young critically acclaimed trio Lula Wiles performs its distinctive brand of “new American music.” The Hall of Fame’s conservatory is the setting for our exclusive gala dinner. Then step into the “living room” for a special performance by Rodney Crowell, who has won more awards for his work in music than we can count, in the intimate and acoustically spectacular Ford Theatre.

What you need to know

Before You Go


Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
