This Tennessee town has long been applauded for its nurturing and celebration of country music. It kicks-off the CMA Music Festival downtown once again—June 5th to 8th. And ABC-TV’s current show Nashville certainly shines a sexy spotlight on the fictional dramas of country divas. But Music City is not only about the Grand Ole Opry and country twang. Reborn, revitalized, reinvented—this Southern scene has sizzled into an increasingly feisty cultural stallion that bucks stereotypes. Vibrant chefs, out-of-the-box artists, edgy architects, energetic entrepreneurs, and innovative designers—plus plenty of rock ‘n’ rollers; classical, jazz, and blues musicians; ballet and modern dancers—have catapulted Nashville into an eye-opening, must-see destination.
