Once an aspiring country songwriter, pop culture icon and GRAMMY-winning recording artist Taylor Swift moved to Nashville when she was 14 years old and spent her formative years writing and recording along the city's famed Music Row. From Centennial Park to Ryman Auditorium, The Tennessean compiled a list of some of the must-see spots in Music City for any Swift fan.

Unsurprisingly, the Grand Ole Opry made the cut. Swift has performed at the Opry several times since she made her debut in 2006, when the teen starlet and up-and-coming country star was excited to say, "Oh, my God, I'm on the Opry!"



While she's since relocated to homes in New York City, Los Angeles, and Rhode Island, Nashville – A.K.A. Music City, USA – has played a significant role in shaping Swift's music and career. Her most recent visit to the Opry was in 2020 for the Academy of Country Music Awards. She performed "Betty" from her eighth studio album Folklore, cementing the world-famous Opry House as a stop on any Swiftie's travel bucket list.
