Nashville, aka “Music City”, is the capital of Tennessee, and is located on the Cumberland River in the north-central part of the state. Known as the center of the music industry, and as the home of country music, Nashville has a vibrant music scene spanning a variety of genres that also includes a world class symphony. The city is also know for its healthcare, two major sports teams, ( NHL's Nashville Predators and the NFL's Tennessee Titans), and is home to numerous colleges and universities, including Vanderbilt and Tennessee State.
In 2015, Nashville won the No. 1 spot on Travel + Leisure's "America's Friendliest Cities" ranking, and, as should be expected, has been ranked as the "Nation’s Best Music Scene” by Rolling Stone Magazine.
