Nashville, apart from being the state capital of Tennessee, shares some of the richest history in country music. Tennessee, the state where Nashville lies boasts of other cities like Memphis which has its own genre of music like rock and roll and blues which gained popularity throughout the world from this very place.
Nashville has the privilege of being the ‘center of the country music.’ Its glorious past and the love of country music has meant that the city which is also the state capital of the state Tennessee, attracts many country music lovers from across the States.
It is also one of those places where historical battles have been fought and won. Probably one of the most important parts of the American civil war started and ended here. As this city had already been developing into an important trading post, both sides of the warring sides were looking to keep hold of this place during American Civil War.
Nashville was the first state capital to fall to Union Troops and this was the turning point in the American Civil War as the city had already grown its importance economically. Both side wanted to gain authority over the city and at the end the Unionist prevailed and the rest is history.
Now, talking about the state itself, Tennessee (TN) was thriving economically, so naturally the importance of the state grew to the point where it attracted many entrepreneurs, industrialists and last but not the least, is home to one of the most important political figures in the American history with the likes of Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett and Sam Houston.
The state with the rich history in music, politics and business was also one of the places to witness some of the worst racial discrimination taking place during the nineteenth and twentieth century. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis in this state which had put this state in the awkward position during the Civil Rights Movement in the sixties. There might be some dark periods in the history of this state but there are some examples where people in this state can be proud of, like the early rock and roll and blues got a boost right from this very state. If you are looking to visit this music city, the place has more than enough hotels and motels to welcome you. One of the best hotel is Hotels Downtown Nashville.
