NASHVILLE MUSIC CITY
Nashville is the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee and home to Vanderbilt University. Legendary country music venues include the Grand Ole Opry House, home of the famous “Grand Ole Opry” stage and radio show. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and historic Ryman Auditorium are Downtown, as is the District, featuring honky-tonks with live music and and plenty of outdoor activities. The area's many attractions paint a picture of this unique Southern city and leave an indelible impression on all who visit. #NashvilleLove
WSM-AM announcer David Cobb christened Nashville “Music City U.S.A.” on the air in 1950. Eventually, this became Nashville’s de facto trade name, but back when Cobb first coined the term, the city was hardly the exclusive haven of hillbilly singers or honkey tonks. Many historians make it out to be. Just the opposite, Nashville was home to jumping blues, R&B, gospel and pop scenes as well. Over the years everyone from Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan to Yo La Tengo and India Arie all have recorded here.
The Parthenon in Centennial Park, in Nashville, Tennessee, is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was designed by Confederate Veteran William Crawford Smith and built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Today the Parthenon, which functions as an art museum, stands as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, a large public park just west of downtown Nashville. Alan LeQuire's 1990 re-creation of the Athena Parthenos statue is the focus of the Parthenon just as Greece.
