Somewhere a little south?of Nashville is Bluegrass Underground. They have Bluegrass performances in a natural amphitheater in an underground cavern.

I-81 and Blue Ridge run parallel to each other. I can get to VA in one day from home, then we start the next morning in Winchester VA, shoot over to Front Royal and ride BRP as far as we want until we get bored then shoot over to 81 to make some miles. Good place to stop overnight is Floyd VA, the Hotel Floyd is super nice and amazingly cheap, town has a couple of really good restaurants. Next day take 221 for a while then back to BRP, Little Switzerland for lunch. End that day in Maggie Valley. Hit up Wheels thru Time Museum, well worth the stop. Next day ride thru Cherokee to the Tail of the Dragon finally hooking up with I-40 into Nashville.

We have done that basic route several times, great mix of killer roads and making some miles, good time.

I was down in Nashville in 2013..? I think. I rode a long trip, but I was coming up from Florida. I rode the Tail of the Dragon, and then headed west to Nashville. I stopped in to the Johnny Cash Museum. http://www.johnnycashmuseum.com/
I know there is things to see like the Grande Ol Opry. But, I only went to see John's place.
I then meandered north to Milwaukee.

Have a good ride and safe trip.

The HD store is HD of Bowling Green. That is one of the two that is owned by the company that I work for. That facility is really nice and the people are pretty cool too.

Default Nashville

In Kentucky there is Mammoth Cave, Vette Museum, bourbon trail, and in Tennessee, Jack Daniels, Natchez Trace, Grand Ole Opry, Loveless Motel, lower Broad Street in Nashville, the list just keeps on going.
BTW Nashville is a music town and not just country. There is also bluegrass, jazz, and rock and roll.
Have fun

Take 81 to Harrisburg from there take 15 south you can stop by Gettysburg PA see the sight (Battle Ground HD is nice place to stop) then continue on 15 south to VA 340 from there you have option to take Skyline Drive or just stay on 340. It is better then riding 81. Other option is 81 to US 50 West to 219 south that is a beautiful ride thru WV. Enjoy your trip.

Then 19 to New River Gorge Bridge. Then, 19 runs into 77, and back to 81 in Wytheville VA. 68 & 79 are wonderful rides for interstates. Nothing like 81. WV is a great state in which to ride. It's a little further west & out of your way, but you'll never regret WV riding. Also, there's a visitors ctr just before New River Gorge Bridge, and definitely worth a stop. I love WV. I'm in upstate PA, and I go down there AT LEAST once a summer just to ride the roads & see the sights down there. Also, in Weston WV is a tour through the old Weston State Hospital. It's Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Only about a mile off 79, and about a half hour south of Morgantown.

I second the recommendation of New River Gorge, very cool. I went to the American Pickers store in Nashville. They had some stuff that I had watched them pick on TV, including the Von Dutch VW motorcycle, but about 2/3 of the stuff in the store was their merchandise (hats, shirts, coffee cups, etc). I headed SW after that, to Memphis
