Nashville Music & Motos Hangout 2024

September 16 - September 23

Nashville Music & Motos Hangout 2024 1

Registration opens on March 13, 2024 at 10 a.m. Central Time

Let’s slip on those bandanas like Willie and Waylon and get ready to ride around “Music City”! We are combining two passions – music and motorcycles. By motorcycles – we mean all interstate/street legal wheels (motorcycle, 3-wheeler, sidecar, quad) for our 7-night Hangout. Bring your favorite bike for planned group rides throughout the week to enjoy flavors of Tennessee, like classic Southern dining and an optional Jack Daniels Distillery Tour. We’ll enjoy some “Music City” adventures like the General Jackson Showboat, Blue Bird Café, and Music Row. Interested in learning how to plan RV travel with a motorcycle? This Hangout offers educational talks on how to do it. So, let’s get ready to rev those engines like only Escapees know how!

Hangout Hosts Will & Lucinda Belden, Leaders of the Escapees ‘Twist Your Throttle’ BOF, look forward to meeting you!

This Hangout is open to ALL Escapees, however extra provisions have been made to encourage those who already travel with a Motorcycle/Trike/Road-licensed four wheeler, or who would like to learn more about how to do so. Even if you don't own a motorcycle, we'd love to have you join us, as Nashville & the Natchez area has plenty entertainment for everyone!

Hangout Highlights

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Often referred to as the “Smithsonian of country music,” this museum stands as a towering testament to the genre’s rich history and cultural significance. 

The extensive Objects Collection housed within its walls is a treasure trove of nearly 500 musical instruments, showcasing everything from vintage guitars to banjos that have shaped the sound of country music through the decades. Artifacts of stage wear and personal clothing not only tell the stories of the artists themselves but also reflect the evolving trends and cultural shifts within the genre and society at large.

Natchez Trace Parkway A picturesque route that stretches for 444 miles,  mirroring the historic Natchez Trace, a significant travel corridor used by Native Americans, European settlers, soldiers, and traders for thousands of years.

Embarking on a scenic group motorbike ride or drive along the Trace offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature and history. 

A visit to the Natchez Hills Vineyard and Winery presents the perfect rest stop where guests can indulge in optional, locally produced wine tastings.

Redneck Nashville Bus Tour A unique and hilariously entertaining way to explore the vibrant city of Nashville, blending comedy with culture and history. 

You’ll be treated to comedic commentary that promises to keep you entertained as you visit some of the city’s most iconic landmarks: Music Row, Printers Alley, The Honky Tonk Highway and the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery.

General Jackson Showboat on River

The General Jackson Showboat offers a remarkable journey that encapsulates the rich musical heritage of Tennessee; as you embark on this daytime cruise, you’re not just taking a trip across the water; you’re immersing yourself in the soul of Tennessee, celebrated through its legendary music.

In addition to a delectable southern meal, this voyage promises an auditory feast.  Through guitars, fiddles, and harmonious voices, the live performances of the “TENNESSEE LEGENDS” program is a heartfelt salute to the artists who have shaped the musical landscape not just of Tennessee, but of the world, all while enjoying the scenic beauty of a river cruise.

Hangout location

Two Rivers Campground is a family run RV Park, just two miles north of Opryland and Opry Mills. Local country musicians & bands play daily in the park. Super easy entry access for big rigs and most importantly it is very convenient for the fun of Nashville. The park offers a laundry & shower house, a swimming pool, a shuttle to downtown and a camping store next door.

Is this event right for me?

Every member is welcome at all Escapees RV Club events and every activity is optional. With that said, this Hangout is best suited for members who:

  • have a motorbike, trike or road-licensed four wheeler (optional) or are interested in learning from others how best to travel with these vehicles
  • enjoy walking for several miles
  • can participate in activities during weekdays (traditional working/business hours)
  • have transportation if carpooling cannot be arranged
  • enjoy scenic drives up to 1.5 hours (don’t forget the return trip drive too). We’ll make regular restroom & gas stops for filling up small motorcycle tanks
  • are comfortable being away from your rig for up to 7-10 hours during the day

For events designed specifically for working-age RVers, with most activities in the evenings and on weekends, try an Xscapers Convergence.

Or, for more of an all-inclusive, guided-tour experience, you may prefer one of our Head-Out Programs (HOPs).

Pet Owners

We love our pets and try to select pet-friendly activities and venues so your pet can come along. But, it’s not always possible. Several activities during this Hangout will require you to be away from your pet for the day.  We recommend making advanced care arrangements for your pet. Many Hangout attendees have used Rover.com.
