Nashville, the capital city of Tennessee, is more commonly known as "Music City," the capital city of country music in the United States, and arguably the world. You can learn about and appreciate country music all the way through town, but the first stop has the be the Country Music Hall of Fame where you will learn about the industry as well as the musicians and those from around the world that helped to found and shape it.
The main strip in Nashville is lined with bars with live country bands -- you will find something going on every night of the week. Some bars also have line dancing! Check local guides for when you are there to see if there are any big-name artists that you might want to go and see.
One of the other very cool and different things to do in Nashville that is non-music related is a trip to the only full-sized replica of the Parthenon outside of Greece. The building is pretty spectacular and the grounds that surround it are gorgeous as well.
Hostels in Nashville are scattered -- some are right downtown and close to the action and others are a fair way out of town and you would need a car for transport to get to and from the places that you want to go to. Each Nashville hostel should be able to give you information on getting to and from places in the local area if you ask them.
