Saddle up for a ride on 36 famous Tennessee folks.. In Short Thirty-six figures of Tennessee history, sculpted into colorful, folky carousel figures, are the masterworks of Tennessee-born, New York-based artist Red Grooms.

See people rush to the guitar-adorned Kitty Wells on her tour bus, Chet Atkins, the Everly Brothers or the music/comedy team Lonzo and Oscar.

This is an amazing attraction created by artist Red Grooms. Each carousel piece is sculpted to reflect historical or popular significance to Tennessee. Unfortunately, ridership is down, and they currently have it shuttered while the city considers relocating the carousel.
