  Steve in Ernest Tubb Record Shop
by mightywease

Opened in 1947 by country music singer and actor Ernest Tubbs this shop contains an encyclopedic catalogue of country music recordings.
Whether you want Bluegrass or Cowboy, Gillian Welch or Patsy Cline Ernest Tubb
will have it.
My husband, Steve, wanted a copy of a song we had heard being covered by a band at the Bluegrass Inn. Despite knowing only two words and a small amount of the tune he sang it to the lady behind the counter who, with confimation from her colleague, identified it as "Hello Trouble" by Orville Couch and found the album for him to buy. Fantastic!
The shop sells C.D.'s, cassettes and some vinyl recordings.
Be aware if you are a music fan you may spend quite a lot of time and money in there.
The shop has hree branches. The original store on Broadway, shop number 2 at 2416 Music Valley Drive (where the "Midnite Jamboree" takes place on Saturdays) and inside Nashville Airport.
