Andrew Johnson Hotel
—Cradle of Country Music Tour —The Andrew Johnson Hotel's top floor was the original site for WNOX's live country music variety show The Midday Merry-Go-Round. An early star of the show was a little known fiddler named Roy Acuff. The rowdy fans and musicians who crowded the hotel's elevator and lobby brought complaints which forced WNOX to hold its live shows elsewhere.
