Nashville was first chartered as a city in 1806, a small settlement in the middle of a vast wilderness. However, its central location quickly made it into a popular destination and it became the areas political, religious and commercial hub. In 1843, Nashville was officially named the Tennessee’s capital, beating out the city of Charlotte by only a single vote. Nashville became a vital trade center after the Civil War, with its population quadrupling to over 80,000 people by 1900. It began its legendary rise and a musical mecca just after World War II when musician and entrepreneur Roy Acuff joined the Grand Ole Opry . Acuff was instrumental in building Nashville’s reputation, and created the city’s first music publishing company: Acuff-Rose music. This led to the emergence of Music Row, two streets on 15th and 16th Avenues that housed almost all of the city’s music publishers, recording studios, and record labels.
Today, Music Row is still operational, but the variety of music coming out of it has increased greatly. Christian and other faith-based music makes its home here, and it has become an increasingly popular destination for pop-and-rock acts as well. Broadway, the downtown strip that attracts tourists from all over the world, is one of the densest concentrations of live music in the world. Dozens of bars and restaurants line the street, each with its own stage (sometimes two or three) with band playing all day starting at noon and going until 2:00am. While Broadway is almost exclusively country and bluegrass, tourists can take a left onto 2nd Avenue to find venues that are more in line with rock and blues sensibilities like the famous B.B. King’s and Coyote Ugly. All of these bars are cover-free, so guests are encouraged to bar hop and listen to have a drink and listen to a band in as many places as possible.
Of course, it’s not just tourists flocking to Music City. Aspiring singers and songwriters move there every day chasing a dream. It’s these hopefuls that put the music on the stage and are the heart and soul of Nashville.
These aspiring musicians of course want to one day play the big stages in Nashville, of which there are certainly some iconic ones. The most famous of course is the aforementioned Grand Ole Opry, which got its start in 1925 as a “barn dance” on the WSM-AM radio show. The Opry is the longest running radio show in U.S. history, and today hosts chart-topping acts as well as up-and-comers. Today, the Opry has its own building next to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, but it used to be run out of the history Ryman Auditorium before a tragic fire necessitated a move. Fortunately, the Ryman recovered and is still being used today. Known as “The Mother Church of Country Music,” it’s often cited as one of the acoustically best venues in the world.
It’s easy to think of Nashville as just a music town, but a growing culinary scene has made it just as much a destination for foodie culture. The current Nashville specialty sweeping the nation is of course Nashville Hot Chicken, a zesty take on fried chicken that is showing up everywhere from KFC menus to pizza toppings. Ask various Nashville chefs what the secret to good hot chicken is and you’re sure to get different answers, but the constants are always perfectly juicy chicken, a flavorful dry rub, and a sauce that brings the heat. It’s not all finger food either, Nashville is also home to multicourse, fine-dining restaurants that book up months in advance and are reminiscent of New York or Vegas Michelin-starred restaurants. Being centrally located and also a home for transplants from all over the country, Nashville also has authentic cuisine from all over the U.S. Family-owned restaurants from Chicago make perfect deep dish pizza, or there are places to get a jambalaya that tastes like you were sitting in the bayou. If there are two things folks are guaranteed to do when they come to Nashville, it’s listen to great music and eat amazing food.
Nashville is also a great place for nature lovers. There are many parks and recreational areas as little as fifteen minutes away from the city center. Cheekwood Botanical Gardens is one such place. Named for the Cheekwood mansion that sits at the center of the property, these beautiful gardens double as an outdoor art museum, with sculptures and traveling exhibits being on display for guests as they stroll over the dirt and cobblestone paths. Past exhibits here have included massive interactive tree houses, the glowing glass sculptures of famed artist Chihuly, and during fall a pumpkin patch full of a dizzying array of jack o’ lanterns. For those looking for something even more remote, there are many national parks within an hour’s drive of Nashville with miles of hiking trails, camping grounds and beautiful waterfalls. The most popular of these is Cummins Falls, which has a short three-mile hike down the base of a massive waterfall that empties into a perfectly formed two-tiered swimming hole. This is a go to spot during the summertime for locals and traveler’s alike and has been featured in many a music video.
Nashville’s economy is the third fastest growing in the nation, a charge led by the rapid rise of tourism to the city. In 2013, when the boom started Nashville’s GMP is projected to eclipse $100 billion dollars in the next few years, an elite club populated by only the largest and most successful U.S. cities. Nashville has only encouraged the tourism draw by hosting massive sporting events at Vanderbilt Stadium and Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans. Also, they recently finished constructing the massive Music City Center, a 1.2 million sq. foot convention center that hosts massive events of all kinds. Nashville’s biggest asset is that as much as tourism has helped it; its economy isn’t dominated by one particular sector. The music industry is by far the most visible, but Nashville also has a large medical industry that is supported by several major hospitals and Vanderbilt Medical Center. There is also a booming tech industry that is starting to crop up in Nashville. Silicon Valley-type companies are beginning to sprout up thanks in part to Google’s commitment to install Google Fiber, an ultra-fast internet connection that is extremely attractive to the technology crowd.
Nashville was already growing and going strong when a New York Times article in 2013 called it “The New It City” and from there it has been exploding at a breakneck pace. People and businesses from all walks of life and corners of the map are migrating to Music City and calling it home. It’s got all the music an audiophile could want, an endless list of top-quality restaurants, and enough arts and natural beauty that one never feels like they are stuck in a massive metropolis. No wonder the locals often say it’s a big city, but a small town.
