Nashville for later that night. Knoxville is located in Knox county and used to be the capital of Tennessee in the early 1800s.

The city has a market square with an open courtyard where they play music and have outdoor restaurants. I also stopped by the river to have a look at the city from the river and saw the churches that are quite a bit older than the west coast churches are in the west coast.
