MUSIC CITY

NASHVILLE

You know Nashville as the country’s hot “it” city, hosting millions of visitors each year and welcoming throngs of new residents each month. With a thriving economy, hot housing market, famous food scene, eclectic neighborhoods and true Southern hospitality, it’s no wonder Nashville feels like a smart move. And we haven’t even started on the music.

City with a Soundtrack

Country music might be what put Nashville on the map, but this city is an entertainment hotbed where all genres collide. Americana, bluegrass, rock, blues, hip hop, and jazz all have deep roots here, and live music follows you everywhere you go. Music history underscores just about everything, from the names of the buildings and streets to the iconic venues and storied sites. Nashville is an important slice of the Americana Music Triangle

Visitors Welcome

The lights of Broadway and the sounds of the Opry keep most visitors occupied while they’re in Nashville. But there’s another side to Music City: outside of downtown’s buzz and frenzy you’ll find quiet avenues, lazy front porches and a little room to breathe. And it’s just a taste of what the Nashville’s Big Back Yard has to offer.

Famous Biscuits

At the southwest edge of Nashville’s Big Back Yard sits the world-famous Loveless Cafe, a local institution appearing on visitor bucket lists around the world. The best parts of this authentic, down-home restaurant haven't changed much since 1951; classic neon sign, red checkered tablecloths, and the best biscuits in the Mid-South. As the Loveless grew into a visitor destination, the owners chose not to change the restaurant but expand its campus, which now includes a souvenir shop, artisan gift shop, country market, and of course, a working music venue.

Big Back Yard

The Loveless also just happens to sit right at the northern terminus of the Natchez Trace Parkway, serving as the delicious, buttery gateway to the region known as Nashville’s Big Back Yard. If you’re one of the many curious visitors and potential neighbors exploring our neck of the woods, make sure you start your trip with a Loveless biscuit in each hand.
