Photos from Tennessee

I got back from my American road trip today: two weeks of great music travelling with John Howard, Alan Lloyd and Lee Wilkinson. On our last full day in New Orleans we met up with another group of Woodies who have been touring the south and had an excellent Cajun meal at Mulates.
We have lots of great memories of our trip and I've taken dozens of photos, some of which I will be putting on the blog in the next few days. Here's the first batch, from Nashville and southern Tennessee, starting with one of me at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Here's Alan at the museum.
Here are the four of us at the famous piano at the RCA Studio B where many artists recorded, including Elvis, the Everlies, Roy Orbison, Don Gibson and Jim Reeves.
This is John in jovial mood at Studio B.
Me outside the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
And here I am in Legends bar on Broadway in Nashville.
Willie Nelson's museum and store near the Grand Ole Opry.
Nearby is the wax museum (now closed) and the hand and footprints of many country stars (also now apparently neglected).
John, Lee, Alan and me at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Larry Gatlin, host of the weekly radio show broadcast live from the Ryman.
Mel Tillis, who starred when we were there.
Travelling through southern Tennessee we came across an Amish community, and a quaint old-fashioned store.

No, he only did a few numbers - Don't You Ever Get Tired of Hurtin' Me, an instrumental Orange Blossom Special,I Believe In You and Heart Over Mind. Check the write up I did for the other people on the bill - Jan Howard, Mark Collie and Sarah Garland.
