Nashville makes it to 13th place in part due to its nearly 1,500 restaurants and to Vanderbilt University, but that’s not what defines the pulse of the Music City. Home to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, Nashville has attracted or raised a numbingly long list of America’s top musicians, from country greats such as Johnny Cash to modern acts like Kesha. For Nashville residents, finding some of America’s next best music can be as simple as strolling over to Music Row, where new venues blend with nearby classics, such as the Station Inn.
