Even though something like 70% of the people on planet Earth live within 150km of the ocean it's very rare that these same people get to enjoy a tropical climate. If you're living in the pacific northwest or the east coast of the United States for example you'll know what it's like to be able to count the number of days of sunshine on one hand maybe. You'll also have separated rain into several different categories - including the rain that seems to fall sideways.
The point we're making here is that because Nashville has what's called a humid subtropical climate you’re not going to have to deal with continuous and torrential downpours for most of each year. In fact what Nashville can offer you is a climate where you have 4 very distinct seasons so you can almost predict the temperatures well in advance and there aren't any extremes of heat or cold here either. You'll find that Spring and Fall are truly beautiful times of the year with the parks in the city reflecting these changes quite visually.
In addition to that the winters in Tennessee are also very mild and although we do get snow it tends to be very light and not stay for very long. In terms of temperatures you can expect summer highs of around 70°F and in the winter that will drop down to around 38°F, for your average lows. During any given year you can expect to have around 200 days of sunshine in Nashville, which is less than some of the sunnier states but a major improvement on the east coast or the Pacific Northwest for example.
Not everyone wants to live in sun-soaked oasis of heat and if you're just such a person then the climate in Nashville is going to suit you perfectly. After all it's nice to be able to tell what season it is by looking out your window instead of just thinking "it's too hot...again" or "oh...look...it's still raining".
