Genuinely surprised by the amount of growth of Nashville while on a visit. Tons of local art, music and growth. While most of the country is in recession, Nashville is booming. This images depicts the many facets of this gem of a city. The column represents the “Athens of the South” (named so because of the number of schools). A lone guitar player in the lower right sings his heart out as people inside the building enjoy an elegant dinner. All while construction of high-rises loom in the background.
