After breakfast, head to downtown Clarksville for a quick driving tour before settling in at the Roxy Regional Theatre for a stage production of the holiday classic, White Christmas. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song and dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters enroute to their Christmas show at a Vermont Lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. With a dazzling score featuring well-known standards including “Blue Skies”, “I Love a Piano,” “How Deep is the Ocean,” and the perennial title song.
After the show, stroll through downtown Clarksville to do a little shopping and have lunch on your own in one of the local restaurants.
Next, we will head to Miss Lucille’s Marketplace for a unique shopping experience. They have a variety of merchandise ranging from vintage finds, handmade goods, rare antiques, gift items, and new upholstered furniture. The marketplace offers shopping carts for all your finds, wide aisles because you can expect a crowd, and handicap accessibility. With over 200 vendors, you might need a break or a bite, so stop by the in-store café for some coffee or dessert.
Country Music fans will be excited for the next stop. We will drive an hour south to the tiny town of Bon Aqua, Tennessee, home of the Storyteller Museum and Johnny Cash’s Hideaway Farm. Owned by Johnny Cash for more than 30 years, he commonly referred to the farm as the “center of my universe.” From the holiday decorations to the farmhouse and the legendary “One Piece at a Time Car,” Johnny Cash Fans will be delighted by this stop.
In 1976, Johnny Cash filmed half of his annual televised Christmas special at the farm. Tonight, after dinner, we will go to the Storyteller Museum for a Christmas show featuring scenes from that television special and live music from Johnny’s nephew, Mark Alan Cash. It will be a wonderful evening of nostalgia and music that will leave your guests delighted and ready for Christmas. (B,D)
