Southern Fried Tours

Nashville Sites


Nashville, the Heart and Soul of Southern hospitality and the home of country music. Experience the sights and sounds that have made us famous. It all started when a heart broken young man from Canada decided to go huntin’ and fishin’. Davy Crockett showed up and entertained the new settlers by fiddlin’ around down by the Cumberland river. The Fisk Singers brought us International fame by wowing the Queen of England with a command performance. Soon after radio hit the airwaves, the Carter family became the First Family of Country Music. They invented the genre!

In four hours, we’ll go from our log cabin roots to the glass and chrome high-rise buildings that make us the 14th fastest growing city the USA.

C’mon down and I’ll show y’all around.

Grand Tour


For a breath of fresh air, how about a day in the country? 

We’ll try to cover all the bases starting with a country breakfast and ending up in Tennessee wine country. Along the way, we’ll see celebrity homes and magnificent hillside estates. 

Picturesque little villages will put out the welcome mat. You’ll be greeted with smiles so sweet that you could pour ‘em on pancakes. 

We will go behind the battle lines of the infamous Battle of Franklin where almost 50,000 Americans met on a battlefield about the same size of a football field. 

After rushing around Nashville, let’s spend a relaxing day in the country.

The Battle of Franklin


This gets personal for Mr. Jack. His great-great grandfather carried the battle flag for the Mississippi regiment, not knowing that a relative from New York was on the other side.

In the early evening hours and into the dark of night, about 50,000 Americans converged at Carter's cotton gin. In the darkness, cannons roared, rifles emptied their lead in the general direction of their foe. 

When ordinance was exhausted, they resorted to rifle butts, shovels, rakes and hoes, not sure if they were fighting friend or foe,

 Hear the story as told by a descendant of a Son of the South.

Celebrity Homes


This is a bonus. All tours include a few or many celebrity homes because the country stars live all over town and out into the country side. As we drive to the various destinations, we’ll point out where they live.

If you like, though, we can plan an entire tour around celebrity homes.
