You see, DeMain’s just as talented a music journalist as he is a musician, and he’s contributed stories to MOJO, Classic Rock, Performing Songwriter, Mental Floss and Entertainment Weekly. Bottom line: The man lives and breathes music, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of country, pop and rock history.
Which is why his latest venture, Walkin’ Nashville, has us so excited. During this 90-minute walking tour of downtown Nashville, DeMain will share behind-the-scenes anecdotes about many Nashville country legends, and even take you to locations where some of them transpired. Find out the stories behind the creation of timeless classics like the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” Jim Reeves’ “Four Walls,” Tammy Wynette’s “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” and many more.
And expect a healthy dose of wry humor: This is the same guy behind The Sterling Huck Letters, a hilarious collection of prank letters to various companies, and the responses they generated. (Case in point: A letter to Bekins Van Lines asking if they’d move his grandmother-in-law’s favorite chair from Nashville to Reno, Nev. — with her in it.) Walkin’ Nashville is a no-brainer for music tourists, but also the perfect staycation treat for locals.
