WHY I'M A NASHVILLECAT:

 WHY I'M A NASHVILLECAT:
I visited Nashville 
A few years ago.
To see Daniel record a DVD,
How I enjoyed it so.

It was at The Ryman Auditorium
 Pictured above.
It was a night I vivdly remember.
A night I so loved.

Charlie Pride also made an appearance,
Likewise Majella, Daniel's wife.
It was a fantastic concert,
Forgetting tears and strife.

During the five day visit,
Had my photo took.
 Above with some "Nashville Horses"
Should you care to look.

Below is the small river within the hotel grounds,
Where one could take a boat ride.
 Staying at "The Gaylords"
One's pleausre you couldn't hide.

Of course how could one miss
The Country Hall of Fame.
 It was a sight to behold,
So many famous names.

Then we went to "The Grand Ole Opry"
A picture below with me on cetre stage.
 The group of tourists we were with,
Also sang a song but didn't get paid a wage.

The entrance to The Grand Ole Opry
Very Impressive indeed.
 As the picture shows above.
It catered for everypne's need.

Back at the Gaylords Hotel
I show off my piano skills.
 I hadn't played for a long while,
But it gave me a tremendous thrill.

The hotel was excellent,
First class, with a wonderful "Welcome Mat"
That's why dear friends one and all
Is the reason  I'm a Nashvillecat.

As already mentioned,
Five wonderful days were spent.
In the heart of country music.
The People and views were certainly Heaven sent.
