For those of us who already live in Nashville, all the accolades and attention from national media outlets is nice to see every now and then, but not entirely necessary. We already know how great it is to call Nashville home, of course.
But for anybody considering a move to Music City sometime in the near future, Business Insider is now just the latest publication to recognize the Nashville is definitely trending upward by putting it on its list of the 13 hottest American cities for 2016.
So what does this mean?
To compile the list, the folks over at Business Insider took a close look at job growth, population growth, affordability, livability, and the health and well-being of residents as determining factors in how well certainly places may fare over the next 12 months, ultimately concluding that Nashville seems to check off all the boxes for these and a number of other categories.
Also considered was how innovative each city is, which of course will continue to attract younger people to the area, or even perhaps those working in various creative and technological industries, which are two of the driving forces behind today’s economy.
But along with that, Nashville is also becoming a huge player in the health care and auto industries as well, helping it become one of the fastest growing places in the country right now in terms of population.
Unfortunately for other world-class cities like New York and San Francisco, real estate and living costs continue to make it tough for each to make any sort of “hot list” in 2016, but a couple other cities that did make the cut include Detroit and Atlanta.
