Tennessee: The Heart of Country

NashvilleThere are many reasons people move to Tennessee, and country music is right up there at the top of the list. Nashville’s nickname is Music City, and it’s known throughout the world as the cradle of country music. Living in Nashville means being at the heart of this vibrant scene.

The character of Nashville also extends into many suburbs that share its musical heritage. Brentwood movers and Franklin movers will enjoy a rich backdrop of attractions, and will share hometowns with many well-known country music stars of today and yesteryear.

Attractions in Nashville

What’s in store for Nashville movers? This city is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which commemorates the history and traditions of country music. Nashville also features the Grand Ole Opry, the world’s most prestigious venue for country stars, featuring a weekly lineup of stellar performances.

People of note from Nashville include the legendary Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Waylon Jennings, Naomi and Wynonna Judd, Hank Williams, Tammy Wynette, Taylor Swift, and Shania Twain.

The background in Brentwood

While Brentwood, Tennessee, may not have the nonstop action of Nashville, it’s right around the corner from Country Central—and this city is a great place to live. Just ask some of Brentwood’s famous country music residents, including Garth Brooks, LeAnn Rimes, Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney, and Trisha Yearwood.

Brentwood is just a 20-minute drive from Nashville. Meanwhile, Brentwood movers will enjoy the city’s peaceful and scenic atmosphere, as well as the many parks in the area. In fact, Crockett Park holds a free annual concert series each summer at the Eddy Arnold Amphitheater, with plenty of country music alongside other favorite genres.

Festivals in Franklin

There’s no shortage of country music atmosphere in Franklin, Tennessee, yet another city that is home to many stars of the genre. Country legends like George Jones, Ashley Judd, Lee Greenwood, Brad Paisley, and Billy Ray Cyrus have lived in Franklin.

Franklin movers can participate in several annual festivals, such as the unique Wine Down Main Street event that takes place on the first Friday of November in historic downtown Franklin. Among the musical festivities is the Pumpkinfest fundraiser featuring local music talent, and Franklin’s Main Street Festival, a two-day celebration with three stages of live musical performances.
