I’m making my way through the friendly skies to Tennesee right now, enjoying a cup of coffee, the view from my window, and a good book. For the next few days I’ll be spending time with my fellow Spokesters in Nashville. We’ll be conjuring up some creative content for our Young & Free fans as well as enjoying the city known for it’s vibrant music scene.
Nashville has been called the birthplace of country music. Some of the biggest names in the genre have called Nashville home at one point in their careers. Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood, and Taylor Swift have all made their marks on country music, starting in Music City Tennessee.
Nashville is also home to the County Music Hall of Fame and Museum, featuring everything from Taylor Swift tour memorabilia to the personal possessions of Patsy Cline. Nashville also hosts the CMA Music Festival, a four-day event featuring hundreds of country artists performing for thousands of music fans.
Music City is where new artists looking to make it big go to pursue their dreams. Taylor Swift landed her first songwriting gig in Nashville when she was just 14 years old. Her parents relocated from Pennsylvania to Tennessee as Taylor took the country music scene by storm. As they say, the rest is history.
To get into the spirit of Nashville, I put together a playlist of some of my favorite musical acts to make their way through Music City during their careers. You can listen to it on the Young & Free Maine Spotify.
