Ah, Music City, how we love you. Nashville is the country music capital of the world, but it’s not just for premiere singer-songwriters. Although the city is well known for honky tonk and bluegrass, pop stars like Taylor Swift live there still.
With a wide variety of places to film in, Nashville is more than a town with an open mic stage for country-strong singers. The death row themed "Green Mile" was shot in and near Nashville and the hometown of the 2012 tv show “Nashville” which follows the lives of country music stars was also created here.
The city is the capital of Tennessee and a major business and economic area for the state, with a good mix of publishing, education, banking, technology, and other industries all within its borders as well. Neighborhoods like East Nashville and West End Ave are top filming spots and provide excellent backdrops for a Music City scene.
Located in the state's central region along the Cumberland River, the city's geography is hilly, and the topographical features provide outdoor recreation opportunities, waterfront fun, and exceptional scenery for filming.
Spring and fall have the best weather, but all you need is a cozy fire in winter, and there’s never a bad time of year to be in Nashville, as the nearly 700,000 residents know.
