Nashville TN Real Estate and Homes for Sale
Nashville is a thriving community filled with risk-takers. The strong entrepreneurial spirit, coupled with the music and entertainment industries, ensures a vibrant “creative class” that helps make the Nashville region an exciting place to live, work and do business.
Since the 1970s, the city and county have experienced tremendous growth, particularly during the economic boom of the 1990s under the leadership of then-Mayor and later-Tennessee Governor, Phil Bredesen. He made urban renewal a priority, and fostered the construction or renovation of several city landmarks, including the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the downtown Nashville Public Library, the Bridgestone Arena, and Nissan Stadium.
Nissan Stadium (formerly Adelphia Coliseum and LP Field) was built after the National Football League’s (NFL) Houston Oilers agreed to move to the city in 1995. The NFL team debuted in Nashville in 1998 at Vanderbilt Stadium, and Nissan Stadium opened in the summer of 1999. The Oilers changed their name to the Tennessee Titans and finished the season with the Music City Miracle and a close Super Bowl game in which the St. Louis Rams ’ win was secured in the last play.
In 1997 Nashville was awarded a National Hockey League NHL expansion team; this was named the Nashville Predators. Since the 2003/04 season, the Nashville Predators have made the playoffs every season except for two.
The Nashville Sounds are the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics and are the Pacific Coast League (PCL) . The team is located in the heart of Downtown Nashville and play their homes games at First Tennessee Park a state of the art complex which was built in 2015.
