When you're visiting a city for the first time, there's nothing better than getting tips from a local beyond the usual guide book suggestions!

We asked Jason Eskridge, singer/songwriter and back-up singer in Zac Brown Band, for his insider scoop on Nashville including where to eat and drink, and where's best for a cheeky day adventure.

Baja Burrito – This is my absolute favourite place to grab lunch. It has great fish tacos, burritos, taco salads, queso, guacamole and fruit tea – the ingredients are always fresh. My go-to dish? The fish burrito.


The 5 Spot – As Nashville’s most diverse venue for live music, this joint features the city’s hottest recurring events. Check out Sunday Night Soul – a bi-monthly night of live soul music hosted by yours truly.


Shelby Park – I love chilling out in any one of Nashville’s many parks, particularly Shelby Park. It’s home to my son’s favourite fishing hole.

Chattanooga – As a youngster, I’d spend most summers here with my family. Don’t forget to visit Tennessee Aquarium, Chattanooga Zoo, Ruby Falls and Rock City.
