The city has developed a trendy food scene, diverse nightlife and an exceptional quality of life for its residents,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV professional house planner. “With all the excitement of a bustling city combined with easy access to rolling green hills and lush natural beauty, Nashville is on the cutting edge for what ‘smart living’ means today.”
