Nashville, Tennessee on Wikipedia
Nashville is a city in Davidson County of the American state of Tennessee and is sometimes called the "Country Music Capital of the World" or more often "Music City"; however, in recent years, Nashville has done much to escape its country music image and become a regional center of culture and commerce. In fact, Dell, Nissan, and Saturn have all moved some operations to or near the city. The music is various; major rap artists and rock bands (Young Buck, Haystak, Kings of Leon, Paramore) claim Nashville as their hometown.
