My Nashville

I have read a book called "My South" and I love it. If you get a chance to read it, do it because it is a wonderful book that gives you the feel of what makes the South so special.

I would like to create something here called "My Nashville" here and hear how you all feel about Nashville. I want to hear from Nashvillians and people that have visited our great city. I want to know what part of Nashville touches you deep in your heart and why you live here or wish you lived here.

I look forward to hearing your input.

My Nashville is walking around inside the Ryman and imagining the history and wishing the walls could talk.

My south is home. It’s the tall pines under which I played in my youth. It’s the soft red clay that was a key ingredient in my mud pies.

In my South, people still say “please” and “thank you,” “yes, ma’am’ and “no, sir.”

My South is sunset symphonies and fine wines…and southern R&B so alive that you can’t sit still and gospel so good it brings you to tears.

My Nashville is walking around downtown and listening to people playing real country outside on the sidewalk.

My Nashville is knowing that at any given moment you can run into someone you know... America's largest small town.
