Since its founding, Nashville has always been a southern crossroads traveled by many – native tribesman and river transients, gospel charmers and country dreamers, Fugitive poets and heroes of the civil rights movement. Decades of these independent histories distill down into a one soulful heritage that, today, booms like no other city below the Mason-Dixon. Whether it’s the indie bent of east-side entrepreneurs or the thriving fashion and food scenes, Nashville’s star continues to rise.
