Day 186

DATE: July 5
MILES: 553.6
Like the old song says: "I'm on my way to New Orleans this morning / leaving out of Nashville, Tennesee." Of course, that lucky fella was on a bus. I'm still walking, and it's full-on Deep South HOT here and there.

In Nashville, and just walked past another cemetery, Spring Hill. Loads of C&W session musicians resting here, plus a good slate of stars: Roy Acuff, Floyd Cramer, George Morgan and Keith Whitley. And pictured above, the "still movin' on" site of one of my faves, Hank Snow.
