Nashville Tennessee

Nashville is the capitol of Tennessee, although it is best known as the Country Music capitol of the world. But Nashville is not just for country music fans. Music City USA also hosts a diverse variety of musical genres including folk, blues, pop, jazz, classical, and more. Nashville’s thriving music industry is evident in the vast number of recording studios, production companies, and music-related shows and museums.

The rich musical heritage in Nashville began with Anglo-American folk music that evolved into country and blues by the 1920s. By the middle of the 20th century, every major record company had built office or studios in Nashville. The growing popularity of live broadcasting of the Grand Ole Opry intensified the attention on Nashville – a tradition that began in 1925 and has remained constant over the decades.

Referred to as the “Athens of the South” because of its strong arts and cultural base, Nashville is home to the amazing Parthenon replica and 42-foot statue of the ancient Greek goddess, Athena. These attractions as well as an art museum can be seen at the city’s urban Centennial Park.

Many public school districts boast high ratings in desirable communities. Residents have over 71 choices in public, private, and religious schools in the area. Higher education is plentiful with over 19 colleges and universities. The most well-known include Vanderbilt University, Middle Tennessee State University, and Tennessee State University. All offer an excellent array of degree programs.

Sports fans can cheer for their favorite teams whether for one of the professional teams or a local little league. Professional teams include Tennessee Titans football, Nashville Predators ice hockey, Nashville Sounds baseball, and the Nashville Kats arena football team.

Spanning 533 square miles, the Nashville area is the 2nd highest land mass in the U.S. for a major metropolitan area. It is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the state.

Where is Nashville TN? Just south of Kentucky and north of Alabama, Nashville sits near the center of Tennessee, accessed by the Cumberland River, and Interstates 40, 65 and 24.

The Cumberland River meanders through the east side of the Nashville metro area; its waters are still traveled today for commercial purposes, and its dams have created recreational lakes for residents and visitors to enjoy.
