Nashville Area Economic Development
Nashville certainly has the 'it' factor. Home to more than 1.5 million people in a 10-county region that includes population centers such as Murfreesboro, Clarksville and Franklin, the Nashville area, known as Music City USA for its country music heritage, is an international hub for all types of music production. Major industries in the Nashville economy include entertainment, manufacturing, distribution, health care and technology. The region also boasts dozens of colleges and universities, and a world-class arts and cultural scene.
