Nashville Overview

When it comes to the hustle and bustle of living in a big city, city dwellers often become hurried and a bit unfriendly. But that’s not the case in Nashville. As capital of the state of Tennessee and with a population of over one and a half million people, Nashville people still treat you like they would in a small town – with respect and sincerity. They take pride in their friendly attitude. When visiting Nashville, you’ll discover that Southern Hospitality is more than a concept – it's a way of life.

Founded in 1779 and named after an American Revolutionary War hero, Nashville has been the state capital of the “Volunteer State” since 1843. And in that time, Nashville has seen a whole lot of changes. One thing that has always remained constant, outside of the gracious quality of its people, is its world-renowned music scene.

As home to the Grand Old Opry since it's inception in 1925, Nashville has literally served to define Country Music. Its musical attractions also include the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Ryman Auditorium. It’s also a major music recording and production center for all types of music, with each of the “big four” major labels having offices there. Nashville is commonly referred to as “Music City USA,” and rightly so.

For over a decade now, Nashville has been home to the Super Bowl contending Tennessee Titans, previously known as the Houston Oilers. The Nashville Predators, a professional hockey team, are also based here. So if you like sports (at whatever level -from minors to the majors), then you'll find a lot to choose from.

Original growth was due in part to its accessibility as a pre-Civil War river port. Today Nashville continues to prosper, attracting those who are looking towards the future. That's one of the reasons that Nobel laureate Al Gore keeps his home office here. Its low cost of living and large job market makes Nashville a prominent destination for those seeking to start a new life. This is one city that has experienced tremendous growth since the 1970's. It's truly a city on the rise.

And nowhere is the future more evident than in the planned Nashville downtown construction of the 1000 foot tall Signature Tower, which will be the largest skyscraper built in America outside of Chicago or New York City.

Thanks to the ultra-modern Nashville International Airport, the city has never been easier to access. Along with top-notch food and beverage offerings, this international airport boasts some of the most modern features and state of the art technology. You'll find that Southern Hospitality even exists at the Nashville airport terminals with its very friendly staff and crew on hand to assist you. Travelling to and from the city is always a pleasant experience.

Regarding the weather, the city’s residents can tell you about its hot humid summers and it's chilly winters. However, the fall and the spring are usually pleasantly warm. Also be advised that Nashville is known to have some pretty intense thunderstorms. So when visiting, pack accordingly.
