Nashville, colloquially known as The Music City, is now the largest city in the state of Tennessee. Three major towns make up the bulk of the Volunteer State’s population: Chattanooga, Nashville, and Memphis. Despite Nashville being the capitol of Tennessee, Music City nestled behind Memphis for the second largest population in the state for years. Reports released by The Tennessean earlier this week officially informed citizens of the change in ranking.


Population growth is not the only good thing happening for Nashville lately; the Nashville Predators recently played their way into the Stanley Cup Finals in the National Hockey League. The Preds were added as an expansion team in the 1990s, and have established themselves as one of the best squads in the entire NHL year after year.


Despite its sustained population size, Nashville has not featured every large chain store in the United States, until recently. The municipality of Nashville is fortunate enough to have earned an Ikea, arguably the most popular furniture store chain in the world. Citizens of the Music City found out about getting Ikea the day after finding out the Nashville Predators earned their way to a Stanley Cup Finals bid, as if the week could not improve any further. Ikea is expected to finish production by summer season 2020.


The well known Bike Week Festival has been moved to one of the most historically rich venues in the area, Opryland. The event, which draws thousands every year, is slated to be held during September 14 through the 24, nearly all day long: from 8 in the morning until 30 minutes before midnight each and every night. Can you say, “rock on!”?


Camping trailer, water, and electricity hookups will be available on the premises of the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center.
