I think that is actually a huge compliment to the design here in the city. There is alot of outside design talent involved in projects here, but there is also a TON of great talent here in the city.

Hopefully the talent here can convince developers to put a few crowns on some buildings.

1. Anything that doesn't hide most of the buildings behind one another...and also shows all of the skyline. 2. Anything that is not the exact same shot every time...as if that's the only option.

I was just interviewed for an upcoming French documentary on the rise of Nashville called “Nashville: Where To Dream Big”. It will air later this year on one of the premiere French TV stations to an e

The Nashville subforum on Urban Planet recently went over 100,000 posts, making it the 3rd most active city on the UP boards after Charlotte, NC and Grand Rapids, MI. I have to say, even as a new

This version of Sméagol is a realist. I like the sentiment you are stating, but this crap will not be over for  long while and we do not know what kind of fall out we are going to be looking at long term from this mess.

Yes, a lot of companies are bullish on Nashville and that is a great thing, but you can't just keep telling everyone nothing is wrong when the country is in a mess.

As for these list I have always found them to be very subjective and have seen so  many of them that I just laugh. The best city for desserts, for walking, for biking, the top bathrooms, the top ten cities to visit before they are gone, the best neighborhoods, the fastest growing, the slowest growing, the richest, the poorest, the most educated, and the list can go on and on.

It is either a blessing or a curse to be on one of these list. I feel like I am starting a Jim Gaffigan monolog here.

Everything you write here is true Smeagols, but there's a significant difference between getting on some random internet site's hastily scraped together click-bait list for the best city for desserts, and Nashville getting a shout out from a revered publication like Conde Nast in a big category on a very short list. 

You're right of course that it's still very subjective and relatively meaningless outside of the publicity, but that's not to say that there isn't a lot of very legitimate value for Nashville from just the publicity itself. We live in a world where entire political careers can be built on tabloids and reality television notoriety, so the publicity even just for publicity's sake is nothing to scoff at - for better and for worse.
