There’s more to Nashville than hot chicken and country music. With the city’s recent influx of young transplants, the Tennessee capital has recently evolved into a cosmopolitan hub, boasting menswear stores and vintage shops on par with what one might find in New York or Los Angeles. Of course, “Music City, U.S.A.” still champions its local distinction: Nashville is home to some of the finest music stores in the country. Here’s where you’ll find the goods.

Billy Reid

For laid-back luxury with Southern undertones, look no further than menswear giant Billy Reid.

The Frye Company

Frye’s newly opened outpost in the Thompson Hotel is more than just another boot shop in the Gulch. A stage in the center of the store gives a nod to Nashville’s music heritage and plays host to both public and private concerts.

In Nashville, music culture is inescapable. As such, it’s wise (and rewarding) to get lost in it. Grimey’s lets you do just that. Home to new and used vinyl and in-store concerts, it’s the city’s best record store.

The Nashville outpost of Jack White’s record label, Third Man, is home to a record store and kitschy lounge with a video jukebox, as well as the only recording studio with direct-to-acetate capabilities.

Gruhn Guitars

Gruhn Guitars is one of the best guitar shops in the world, stocking new, vintage and rare guitars since 1970. Whether or not you know how to strum a chord, it’s worth a visit — Gruhn’s wares are just as much works of art as they are musical instruments.
