Nashville: the true home of country music.
And you may well be thinking, That Don’t Impress Me Much.
But even if you don’t consider yourself a country fan, Nashville’s still got plenty to offer. It’s a city where warm hospitality, cold beers and an overload of musical talent (and top-rate cowboy boots) from those it attracts have crystallised to create a remarkable cultural hub. From the growing makers movement to avant-garde chefs; newcomers shaking up the cocktail scene to prolific artists, musicians and songwriters; Nashville has got talent, tradition and individuality by the bucket-load.
So grab a partner, get your rhinestone-studded stetson on (yes, the one you thought nobody knew about), and get stuck into our Nashville city guide – showering you with the best restaurants, bars and hotels in town; plus all the most important sights.
