Nashville General Information
Nashville is still on the way up. The population stands at 569,891 in the city,
1.23 million in the metro area, and has grown at a healthy rate of nearly 12%
since 1990. Restaurants and nightclubs spring up almost weekly. New buildings
emerge on the skyline with regularity.
When the NHL returns to work, the Nashville Predators are ready to take the
ice at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. The Frist Center for the Visual
Arts hosts nationally acclaimed traveling art exhibitions. And the Tennessee
Performing Arts Center is home for the Nashville Symphony and Ballet as well
as home away from home for Broadway touring productions.
||Numerous major companies have either been born
or moved here. Cracker Barrel, Dell Computer, BellSouth and
Bridgestone/Firestone USA are among the corporations headquartered in the
Proud of its title as Music City U.S.A., Nashville offers a wealth of live
entertainment. From the Grand Ole Opry and two-stepping to tiny honky-tonks
with smoky dance floors, venues for live music are everywhere.
Music also has given Nashville some of its best tourist attractions. The
Country Music Hall of Fame is a $37 million treasure trove of memorabilia
and musical experiences. True fans flock to Music Row, an area of several
blocks where many great country songs were born. Music Valley holds
performance venues, shops and family amusement parks. The biggest names in
show business perform at Ryman Auditorium, Gaylord Entertainment Center and
the Opry House.
But Nashville isn't just about sound. It's playing with the big boys now.
The Tennessee Titans put this city in the NFL a few years back, and The
Coliseum is packed on game Sundays.
New and diverse restaurants are popping up everywhere. Neighborhoods are
grabbing attention with their distinctive style and attitude. Hillsboro Village,
by the Vanderbilt campus downtown, is a neighborhood of tree-lined sidewalks
where country music stars and college professors stroll to corner restaurants
and quaint shops. Germantown, Nashville's oldest residential neighborhood, hosts
festivals like Oktoberfest and Maifest to celebrate its heritage.
Other industries, such as new media, the healthcare services and the many
venture capital companies, may well be hugely financially important (the major
healthcare companies generate 10 times as much revenue as the entire tourist
industry), but they are much less visible.
Without the country music, who would know the name of Nashville? Much of the
boom in the boomtown comes from ancillary music industries, such as publishing,
management, TV and recording studios. So as long as country music survives, then
Nashville surely will thrive.
