Carolyn Moore
Carolyn Moore
Carolyn became a tour guide in April of 1985 just as Randy Travis became the new best thing in country music. Growing up in Nashville she was rocking around the clock and over Blueberry Hill and would not have crossed the street to see those ole hillbilly country stars. But in 1979 she was lied to, cheated on and her husband ran off with another woman. Only then did she realize what Loretta and Tammy were singing about. Passion and pride for Tennessee and its place in American Music history keep Carolyn coming back each week to the best job she has ever had…a Nashville tour guide.
