Travel Channel Hosts in Nashville
Our hosts love Nashville! So we took a look back at a couple places Adam, Bert and Sam visited, including must-see sights like Music Row, the Grand Ole Opry and Designs by Manuel.
Adam in Nashville
Adam Richman visited Nashville when filming an episode of Man v. Food Nation. Music Row, Shelby Street Bridge, the Walk of Fame, Grand Ole Opry, Pancake Pantry and Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack are just a few places he stopped during his trip to Music City.
Owen Bradley Park
Adam posed with a statue of American record producer Owen Bradley, located in Nashville’s Owen Bradley Park. Owen, along with Chet Atkins and Bob Ferguson, helped create the Nashville sound in country music and rockabilly during the 1950s and 1960s. Owen also worked with country music legends like Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty. Some of his work is still popular today, including Patsy Cline’s famous songs, “Crazy” and “I Fall to Pieces.”
