Nashville, TN

From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. Music has been the common thread connecting the life & soul of the city and its people, and visitors have ventured here to experience the music that weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric. Nashville’s first “celebrity,” the noted frontiersman and Congressman Davy Crockett was known far and wide for his colorful stories and fiddle playing. Diversity is a key part of the city’s past, present and future and it is a model of the American “melting pot” with a deep African American history, an active Native American population, thriving Hispanic community, and growing Middle Eastern and Asian presence. Different cultures, religions, ideas, and customs come together harmoniously in Music City. Nashville has a story to tell. From Greek temples to Greek-Revival mansions to its strong musical heritage, Nashville wears its history proud. Now more than ever, Nashville is on the radar. Nashville offers everything from an electrifying multigenre music scene, award-winning cuisine, historic homes, world-class art, a myriad of attractions, unique shopping, college and professional sports, and more.
