Curator’s statement

Nashville is where I met the love of my life, where I got married and where I began my family. Sadly, we moved away, but my heart will remain in Music City! The good news is we only moved to Knoxville, TN, which is about three hours away! So weekends in Nashville are a regular occurrence! Much has changed since we lived there, but we love to go find the new hidden gems whenever we have a chance! If you think Nashville is only about drinking and line dancing, this guide will dispel that myth!
