Welcome to Nashville!

Nashville, Tennessee’s thriving capital city resting along to the Cumberland River, encompasses 13 counties and nearly 2 million people. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, yet retains a distinct small town character. The city is filled with cafes, restaurants, bars, boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, sports teams, and parks. Live music--country or otherwise-can often be heard from nearly any street corner. Anchored by iconic venues and programs like The Ryman Auditorium and The Grand Ole Opry, the city’s music and art communities are thriving.

With a nickname like “Music City,” it’s no wonder musicians flock to the area. All of the Big Four record labels have a presence in Nashville, and the local music industry employs nearly 20,000 people each year, making it the second largest music-producing center in the country (behind only New York City). Nashville is also a center for the healthcare, publishing, banking, and transportation industries. (In fact, the city’s largest employment sector is the healthcare industry, employing approximately 200,000 residents.) Nashville is also the home of more than a dozen colleges and universities, including Vanderbilt University, Belmont University, and Lipscomb University.
