Grand Ole Opry star Jeannie Seely, who lives down the road from Marty Stuart, even boards tour buses occasionally to greet tourists as they pass her home, which has the Cumberland River as a back yard.

On one recent Johnny Walker tour, tourists were allowed to exit the bus in front of the Opryland-area home of newlyweds Marty Stuart and Connie Smith, which is protected from view by a tall wooden fence.

The tour guide then held cameras over his head to help his customers get a photograph of the home. One Canadian woman even climbed on top of her husband's shoulders to get a better shot.
