Players discover Nashville’s musical heritage
03 August 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Nashville is the home of country music – so where better for our players to immerse themselves in the city’s local culture than at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier visited the iconic venue, that seeks to collect, preserve and interpret the evolving history and traditions of country music.
It is the home of this popular American art form, safeguarding over 2.5 million artefacts, with two expansive floors of gallery space featuring permanent and limited exhibits.
It is one of Nashville’s most popular tourist destinations, celebrating the history of the scene and some of its most notable artists, including Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift.
During their visit, the lads were taken on a guided tour of the museum, having their picture taken with Elvis’ car and experiencing the Taylor Swift Educational Centre.
Eric said: “I admit I didn’t know too much about country music before visiting today but it’s something that you have to do if you come to Nashville.
“The museum is huge and there are so many interesting exhibits, so it was great to visit and find out a little bit more about the culture.”
