It goes without saying that the music industry is a huge part of Nashville’s culture. Almost every night you can visit some location in Nashville and experience the most talented siger-songwriters in the country perform.Other nights you can venture to the Schermerhorn, Grand Old Opry, the Ryman or the Bridgestone Arena for major concert events or even get a ticket to the CMA’s.
But beyond music Nashville’s culture is rounded out by other forms of artistic expression that can be found at the Frist Center, which hosts some of the worlds most popular traveling art displays, and TPAC where you can find most of the major broadway productions being performed.There are usually plenty of sporting events to attend with the presence of the Nashville Predators, Tennessee Titans, Nashville Sounds and Vanderbilt, Lipscomb, Belmont and Tennessee State Universities all having major division one athletic programs.
Other events have recently found their way into the city, like Nashville Fashion Week which made its debut in 2010. Not only are there plenty of things to do, there are great places to eat. Nashville is an over performing culinary city and slowly becoming a place where your menu doesn’t have to include a barbeque sandwich (although there is nothing wrong with having that on the menu).
Some of Nashville’s most famous and trendy spots include Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant, the Catbird Seat, Virago, Holland House, the Pharmacy and Sperry’s just to name a few. If that wasn’t enough, the food truck craze has taken Nashville by storm. There is plenty to do if you have a free night.
