Since Nashville’s beginning in the late 1700s, when settlers celebrated a safe journey on the Cumberland River with fiddle playing and buck dancing, Nashville has been filled with the sounds of live music. It’s home to the iconic Ryman Auditorium, nicknamed the “Carnegie Hall of the South”. Ryman Auditorium has enchanted residents, tourists, and musicians for years, featuring artists like Elvis Pressley and Johnny Cash.

The Fisk Jubilee Singers from Nashville’s Fisk University put their hometown on the map in the 1800s with their around-the-world music tours that funded the school’s mission of educating freed slaves after the Civil War. When they performed for the Queen of England, she remarked they must come from “Music City”, setting the tone for Nashville’s future as the ultimate destination for songwriting, performing, and music publishing.

Nashville’s iconic skyline houses tourist destinations like the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Grand Ole Opry House, the Johnny Cash museum, and the District. For a glimpse into Nashville’s history, visit the nearby Cabin-Museum of noted frontiersman and Congressman Davy Crockett, “Nashville’s first celebrity.”
