Oilers Now Nashville Trip

What a town! On October 15, fifty Oilers fans flew down to Nashville on the Oilers Now road trip with Bob Stauffer.


Nashville, Tennessee, often referred to as the "Music City," is a destination that appeals to travelers from all walks of life. Whether you're a country music fan, a foodie, a history enthusiast, or sports fan, Nashville has something special to offer. This vibrant city has evolved far beyond its musical roots, making it a must-visit location for many.

Our group arrived into Nashville, excited to spend the next 5 days exploring the town. One of the best things about the city is how walkable the downtown core is. There are multiple options for accomodation near Broadway, where all the action is.

The Oilers Now group had a welcome reception at a local speak easy bar near our hotel. These events are always must attend, with Bob Stauffer and special guests. A big thank you to everyone that attended that night! We even had the chance to witness a music video being recorded live by a country music artist in Printers Alley!


Nashville is synonymous with country music, and no visit to the city would be complete without diving into its rich musical heritage. Here are some must-visit destinations for music enthusiasts:

  1. The Grand Ole Opry: Known as the "Home of American Music," this historic venue has hosted legendary country artists for nearly a century. We had the chance to watch Chayce Beckham make his Opry debut. After the show, we did an hour back stage tour to learn more about the history of the Opry. When you go, give yourself lots of time, it's about a 25 minute drive from downtown Nashville.
  2. Ryman Auditorium: The "Mother Church of Country Music" is another iconic venue that's a must-visit. We did the self guided tour and learned a lot of history behind the building.
  3. Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum: This museum is a treasure trove of country music history. Explore its extensive exhibits and artifacts. Tip: Buy your tickets online prior to arrival. You can easily spend 2-3 hours exploring this place!
  4. Broadway Honky Tonks: Lower Broadway is a buzzing street filled with honky tonk bars where you can listen to live music. From Tootsie's Orchid Lounge to The Stage, you'll have a blast exploring this lively area. There's great BBQ to be had too!



October 17 - Game Day!

It was only the third game of the year for the team, but they were looking for a big win and the Oilers delivered in a massive way! Bridgstone Arena is always rockin' and the location just off Broadway is hard to beat.

The Oilers beat the Predators 6-1 and we got to witness a bit of history along the way. Leon Draisaitl set a new Oilers record for most power play goals in franshice history, passing Ryan Smyth and Glenn Anderson.
