Quick! Guess where we were on Sunday. Noooo, not the ice cream event named for the Nashville society maiden left behind when her fiance, John Y. Beall, was convicted of domestic terrorism and strung up. Miss Martha O'Bryan never married, and dedicated her life to good works. And now her name is immortalized in ice cream.

But instead, we opted for a frosty retreat to Mike's Ice Cream Parlor on Broadway, with 50,000 country music lovin' friends.

Besides Mayfield ice creams, Mike's offers homemade flavors. We got Nutter Butter and Chocolate Overload to eat while we strolled and listened to country music. It was a Nashville we rarely experience, and it felt as if ... we were tourists.
