The Ring of Fire Trail is waiting for you: a trail of music, history and landscape that will capture your soul like a heart-wrenching country ballad. You can almost hear the music as you drive through the lush Tennessee landscape dotted with wineries, small towns, farms and villages. The area’s rural roots continue to emerge as you pass by local berry farms, roadside markets and fresh produce stands. Stop off at a trading post, watch a craft demonstration, or cast your fishing line into a quick running stream and hook yourself a bass, bluegill, catfish, or crappie. From the front porch bluegrass of the Tennessee hills to the esteemed Grand Ole Opry — music defines Tennessee like nothing else. After playing sold-out shows, many of music’s greatest stars pack up their instruments and head home to their sprawling estates in surrounding Nashville communities. Two of our greatest legends, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, lived in nearby Hendersonville. You can pay homage to their memory by visiting their gravesites at Hendersonville Memory Gardens. The Ring of Fire Trail is a gateway to a history-cloaked landscape of farms, small towns, music legends and architectural gems.
