Stop Moving to Nashville!
So went the saying by Nashvillians a decade ago.
According to the Nashville Business Journal, the Greater Nashville area is home to almost 2 million residents, a jump of nearly 21% during the last decade.
With more than 100 people moving to the Nashville area every day, I think it is safe to say there is no point in trying to stop the avalanche any longer.
Why? Because we all have noticed that Music City is truly the epitome of “the more, the merrier!”.
While Nashville has always been known for its deep roots in the country music arena, it has continued to flourish into a big melting pot of cultures and views ever since it hit the spotlight in 2012 when the TV series “Nashville” came to town.
It is not hard to agree that its uniqueness lies in the charm and warmth of its people and in all the fun quirks that make it a true gem of the south.
But why do people continue to move to Nashville?
Well, for starters, you might agree with some of the top 10 reasons people choose Nashville. But also, it is mainly because the fun never stops.
Aside from the ongoing music and live festivals, you can always discover a new adventure to embark on every month of the year when you are part of this great community. Allow me to share some of my favorites with you:
January - Let Freedom Sing Concert
There is no better way to kick off the new year than by attending Nashville Symphony’s annual musical gift to our city. More Info
