City of the week: Nashville, TN


It's another city of the week saturday today. I'm sure each one of you loyal and regular readers couldn't wait for another city of the week to come, right? This week's city is Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville is located right in the center of Davidson Country and is, with its about 600,000 inhabitants the 25th largest city of the United States. It also hosts some nice concerts every now and then. 

The biggest arena for that is the Sommet Center (Formerly known as Gaylord Entertainment Center - was a good idea to rename the place, wasn't it? ;-) with a capacity of 20,000 for concerts. Check out the setlists of the following gigs that took place there:

A slightly smaller place is the Ryman Auditorium with a capacity of 2,362 where R.E.M. played in 2004:
An even smaller location is the Cannery Ballroom where 500 people rock the house. And they surely did last year when The White Stripes played there:
