Have you ever wondered where country stars hang out in their time off? ‘Whiskey in My Water’ hitmarker Tyler Farr shows us, giving a video tour of his favorite Nashville hangouts in support of the new show ‘Crazy Hearts: Nashville.’
The singer walks host Heather Byrd down lower Broadway — an area he’s quite familiar with. Farr used to work the door at Tootsie’s, one of the strip’s most popular bars, and he’s made his way up to becoming one of the brightest new faces in today’s country music.
“On any given day, at any time of the day, you can walk right down these streets and hear music in every honky tonk on Broadway,” Farr shares.
He goes on to show Byrd what’s known as the Mother Church of Country Music — the Ryman Auditorium — and also spills the secret to what helped make Tootsie’s famous.
A Nashville tour just isn’t complete without gawking at some incredible houses, which leads Farr to John Rich‘s home. The Big & Rich member has a a black wrought iron gate reading ‘Mt. Richmore,’ but that’s just the beginning of his elaborate estate. Farr explains that he and Rich began writing together recently and have been friends for a couple of years.
Another prominent Music City songwriter joins their jam session before Farr and Byrd leave to see a few other Nashville sights, which include the singer’s favorite eatery and shooting range.
