The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, located on the first floor of the Municipal Auditorium, honors musicians, from many different genres of music, who have played on thousands of iconic recordings. Some, like Jimi Hendrix, are well known to the public while others, like Hal Blaine, are not as well-known but created the sound behind some of the most important recorded music in history. visit the website http://www.musicianshalloffame.com

These session musicians have to be well versed in many genres and instruments, because they may be playing in the studio with Alice Cooper one day and Barbara Streisand the next day.

Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum now offers free admission to the nation’s active duty military personnel, including National Guard and Reserve, and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2015

Visitors can discover instruments, photos, memorabilia and personal effects from artists such as Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, all the way up to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Visit the Musicians Hall of Fame today – a real Nashville treasure that should be visited by EVERYONE in the Music Business – Doak

WHO reads the Nashville Muse among the 3,300+ subscribers?

Tony Arata – Hall of Fame Songwriter “The Dance”, “Here I Am”.  Saw two great shows at 12th and Porter and the Station Inn this week – both of which that I might have missed were it not for info in the Nashville Muse.
Thank you for your good work on behalf of songwriters, musicians and artists here in our hometown.

 Byron Hill,  multi #1 hits and 700+ cuts – “Fool Hearted Memory”, “Born Country”.  The Nashville Muse is a great go-to information source for that quick snapshot of upcoming songwriter events.

Joie Scott #1 and Emmy Nominated songwriter. “Not That Different”, “Shoes” I think the Nashville Muse and Special Deliveries are invaluable when it comes to knowing what’s happening in Nashville. I love the fact that I can find info on everything from the music scene … to where to get my car fixed.   Thank you Doak Turner for putting the city at our fingertips and doing what you do best … helping people!

Pat Alger, Hall Of Fame Songwriter, “The Thunder Rolls”, “Small Town Saturday Night”  Doak Turner’s a good guy with a really good idea. Nashville Muse is the number one way to find out what’s happening musically in Nashville.

Bud Tower, songs cut by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Jr. owner of WikiRymer.com  The Nashville Muse: The place I go to find out what’s happenin’ in Nashville—who’s playin’ their own songs, and when and where. Love it!

Kent Blazy, “Ain’t Going Down Till The Sun Comes Up”, “Gettin’ You Home” (Black Dress Song) and other great songs.  Doak is a valuable asset to the Nashville music community.When folks who have just hit town ask me who or what they should check out I mention Nashville Songwriters  Assoc,BMI,ASCAP & NASHVILLE MUSE.All those things will give them  information that will assist their grasp of what Nashville is about.Thru Doak’s site folks can meet other folks,find out where music is,and learn the ropes of The Row.It’s a great networking tool no matter where you are in your career. I always let Doak know when my band is playing because i know a lot of folks will find out about it thru THE Nashville MUSE. Doak also does a lot of behind the scene things that assist our community,he’s too modest to mention those things.Thanks Doak for all you do & being you…kent

Dave Isaacs – Guitar Teacher and touring artist The Nashville Muse is an essential resource for our songwriting community.

Ralph Murphy, ASCAP and songwriter “Seeds”, “Half The Way” I travel a lot, so it’s important for me to know what’s going on in Nashville. The Nashville Muse always keeps me in “the loop” so that I always am in the know as to events and opportunities to network and celebrate with my fellow Music Business lunatics!! Many thanks Doak for going the “extra mile” for us all. Best, ralph murphy

Benita Hill, songwriter, “It Was Your Song”, “Two Pina Coladas”, “Take the Keys To My Heart” I’ve known Doak Turner since he first came to Nashville and he has always been a supportive friend, personally, and for the entire Nashville songwriting and music community. He is really one for those people who loves to help others. The Nashville Muse is a valuable source of information,networking and connection. Yay, Doak!
