Day 02 | Charleston, WV to Nashville, TN
This morning we got up before the sun rose and got moving on the road to Nashville.
Besides the traffic on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee, the drive was smooth as can be. We learned a lot about bourbon, drove past some pretty amazing sights, and topped it off with some great company. It was so nice to be away from home and see some familiar faces! Not only did we have the honor of meeting up with some pals from college, we had the opportunity to jam and record a song - when in Nashville amiright?
Along with our stats and highlights, I included links and recommendations below. We loved the hotel we stayed at. We also had some awesome food, shared some big laughs and made a lot of memories. Looking forward to visiting again in the future!

Get some hot Chicken in Nashville! We ate at Prince's and it was delicious, another popular joint is Hattie B's.
