Music City Hayride

 The MUSIC CITY HAYRIDE SHOW is the most affordable show in Nashville!

The cost is only $10.00 per person and children under 12 get in free!  There is free parking available for all!

As the 2022 seasonal shows will be starting in May, we urged you to please give to our Veterans, those with dementia, and those with Alzheimer’s that we hold so dear and support by attending our shows.

We are also looking for financial donors, sponsors, and underwriters.  

Please help us to help our Veterans and those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Charities that the Music City Hayride supports are Operation Stand Down TN, Honor and Valor, and we now support the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
