Wife and I are planning a road trip to Nashville mid-summer and would like to listen to some good Bluegrass Music while in the area. Not sure if Nashville is the hot bed for Bluegrass that it once was but would hope it is still out there. Any recommendations? I know of the Station Inn. Anything else? Thanks for your help.

Not bluegrass, but if you have a chance check out the Time Jumpers, a group of "Nashville Cats" that play Mondays at 3rd & Lindsley. Members include Paul Franklyn on pedal steel (Vince Gill's steel player) and Ranger Doug Greene from Riders In The Sky.

AFAIK the Station Inn is still up and running.

A very good place to stop in is the American Legion Bluegrass night. Wednesday nights. If it's the same as it used to be, anyway. There was a public jam, food, and a stage show in the next room. Try to check this out if you can...

I don't think of the "Grand Old Opry" as a birthplace for new music. IMHO bluegrass music started in the hills of the Carolinas. And, it was probably played for personal enjoyment by local musicians. One famous deceased musician said the "blues" feeling was introduced by black railroad workers. So the European music styles locals played merged with blues sound. Radio used to be very popular, and it spread the popularity of different music styles.

Same here Dick. The Ryman advertises their 'Bluegrass at the Ryman' series with those very words though. I should've put it in quotes above. I suppose they do that, perhaps because Bills '46 band played there soon following its formation?
