stats about moving to nashville tnNashville isn’t just a place known for line dancing and cowboy boots anymore. While there’s no shame in getting down to “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” Nashville has much more to offer than country music nowadays. The city itself is becoming more diverse by the minute. But where is that diversity coming from? Well, pretty much everywhere. An average of 70 to 100 people are moving to Nashville TN every day from across the country. Each one of those newly-crowned Nashvillians brings their own flavor, tastes, culture and style (and sometimes even skinny jeans) to Music City.

All of those characteristics have converged together like biscuits and gravy and given Nashville a unique charm, which has appealed to potential newcomers looking to move to Nashville.

If you’re curious about making the move to Music City, here are a few reasons why so many people are now calling Nashville home.

The Nashville restaurant scene will have you coming back for seconds

The culinary scene is on fire in Nashville, and we’re not just talking about the hot chicken.

But those are only a sliver – or an appetizer, if you will – of the full course of restaurant options in Nashville. And that’s not to mention the hot chicken. Long-time favorites like Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack’s and Bolton’s Spicy Chicken & Fish’s super-secret spicy hot chicken recipes will leave your belly full and your eyes watery.

Southern hospitality is a real thing in Nashville

It’s true, southern hospitality is a real thing and it’s right here in Nashville. It won’t take you long to realize how great the people are in Nashville after you move here. There’s a spirit of collaboration and honest-to-goodness friendliness that’s hard to find elsewhere. It’s the type of friendliness that makes you want to whistle the “Andy Griffith Show” theme song while you ride your bike down the street and wave to your neighbor. It’s also the type of friendliness you’ll find when drivers let you merge in front of them after you turn on your turn signal. So, be sure to brush up on your “yes ma’am” and “thank you sir” before you make the move to Nashville. And don’t bother trying to fight it because you’ll be saying “y’all” in no time.
