Of course, we already knew Nashville was the ‘It’ city and now a new study has confirmed what we all knew was true. In the attached video we hear that ‘Nothing Says ‘Merica Like Nashville’ and we’ve found that Wallethub has identified Nashville as the ‘Most American City’ in their new study. Cincinnati came in at #2 with Indianapolis being #3.
When we look at this study ‘2014’s Metro Areas that Most and Least Resemble the U.S.’ and it identifies Nashville as the city which ‘bleeds the most red, white and blue’, we find this is based on a study which ‘includes simple metrics such as age, gender and income as well as more complex metrics such as household makeup and housing tenure.’
What will this do for Nashville, we wondered and we would say that it seems it will be good for the public relations community which is constantly pushing our fair city. This may help visitors to our fair town to make a firm decision to move here, and to raise their families here.
After all, what’s better than a ‘red, white and blue’ community to raise your family in? We’re in for the count, bring them on!
The attached slideshow is of typical events in this ‘red-blooded city’ of Nashville, also known as ‘Music City U.S.A.’ as it is well known for all the many Nashville country music artists, plus the dozens, nay, perhaps hundreds of the singer/songwriters who have come to this town to make Nashville home.
