Now we are famous for producing some of the best country and folk music in the world but did you know that the education system in Nashville is so good we're actually referred to as the "Athens of the South"? The reason why we got this nickname is because way back in 1850 we were the first city in the United States to set up and run a public school system and other places of higher education also. Of course having a Parthenon in the middle of the city also helped the "Athens of the South" title to take hold.

Now the good news is that this claim/nickname is something Nashville can still be proud of today because the education

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

Its Metro Area is the largest in all of Tennessee, and that means nonstop entertainment from nightclubs to movies and restaurants. This also means that that job opportunities abound as more than musicians have started successful career paths here.

When you think of Nashville you'll automatically associate the city with the Gran' Ole Opry and just country music in general, and you wouldn't be wrong in doing that. What you may not realize however is that although music is a key part of the economy of the entire city the largest industry in Nashville is actually healthcare. To give you an idea of the scale of the two main economies in the city the music industry as a whole is responsible for 19,000 jobs in Nashville and has a positive effect on the local economy to the tune of over US$6 billion each year. The health industry in the city is responsible for over 94,000 jobs and total financial contributions of over US$18 billion each year.
