For those looking for a guide to a one-of-a-kind, country-themed vacation this summer, GACTV.com has you covered! The online http://www.gactv.com/ Travel Guide gives the low down on what it takes to plan an unforgettable country-oriented trip, giving the scoop on heel-tapping country cruises, eagerly-anticipated summer tours, and places and things to do during your visit to the capital of country music - Nashville, Tennessee!

GACTV.com is the definitive destination for insider tips on Music City's must-see attractions, and does all the planning for you with details on the best places to stay and take in a good meal, and just as importantly, the best time to make a trip to avoid all the hot summer crowds. The guide includes tips that tourists don't often get, like a list of the top 10 honky tonks and juke joints for a prime sampling of Nashville's home-grown sounds, and a Music Row caveat that gives the real deal on where to catch the most country music history. The site even provides a list of country's ultimate road songs the whole family can sing along to as they trek their way through their favorite summer festivals and tours this year, which according to a recent GACTV.com poll, is topped by Keith Urban's "Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy World Tour," followed by Brad Paisley's "Bonfires & Amplifiers Tour" and Kenny Chesney's "Flip Flop Summer Tour."

Travelers and fans who visit GACTV.com can also catch streaming video clips that serve as a behind-the-scenes tour of some of Nashville's hot spots. This visual tour starts with a sit-down with popular Food Network chef and nationally syndicated host Rachael Ray, an interview with country legend Wynonna Judd, and visits to Ernest Tubb Records and Hatch Show Print - the city's historic print shop.
