More Accolades for Nashville

Recommended Posts


I would assume they get some sort of compensation? So, sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't.

Their "compensation" is grossly inflated room rates, where the rest of us have to pay $400/night despite all the empty rooms.

^^^That's so true. I think the key is in your last sentence. People are surprised they like it so much. No one is "surprised" that they have a good time in NYC, SF or Chicago. But many people don't know what to expect in Nashville. In fact, many people probably do expect one thing (banjos, incest, chewing tobacco) and are amazed when they get something totally different.

I often work with shows that come into TPAC and have found that many of the actors and crew coming into town for the first time are struck with the incredible creative vibe they find in Nashville.  That is especially true with shows here for multi-week runs, such as "Wicked" earlier this year.

everyone: where are you from?

I liked it until I realized that it really means we're number 1 at being average.

 

I would consider Nashville to be the most 'balanced'.

More praise for all things Nashville from The New York Times.

In the travel section "36 Hours in Nashville".

Another wet kiss for the "It" city from The Times!

Funny....

 

 

 

Called Nashvegas for its glitzy glamour, the city could just as easily be called the sixth borough of New York. It is filled with Manhattan refugees,....

I don't know what muddin is, but it seems to me that the "real Nashville" is made up of a lot of different things, including hipster and, apparently, muddin, which is, of course, why it's so damned awesome.  I feel like there are too many commas in that sentence.

The hipster scene seems to be something new, which is great because that's growth. On the flip side, I feel like the only reason that publications from New York are giving us so much attention is because we are showing more similarities to them and not really sticking out for being ourselves. Where were they when we were Nashville and not "a 6th borough"? It just kind of rubs me the wrong way. That and I think" ironic " moustaches and skin tight jeans are just silly.

Maybe I've just become one of those "get off my lawn hippie" kind of people at the ripe old age of 31.

Nice PR piece singing the praises of Nashville. 

 

I look forward to walking and trying the cuisine at her sson to be opened restaurant, Chauhan Ale & Masala House.

 

 

 

Nowadays when people ask me where I call home, I say I am a "Nash-Yorker". After all, home is where the heart is and my heart is now divided. Only one thing is certain, every time I return to New York from Nashville, I walk down the streets with a silly grin, just smiling at everyone I see and more often than not, receiving a suspicious glance in return... but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way, y'all!
