Nashville, the capital of Tennessee, is the 24th most populous city in the United States. Famous for the Grand Ole Opry and the Mother Church of Country Music (The Ryman Auditorium), Nashville is a hub for country music, boasting an exponentially blossoming job market.

The average commute time in Nashville is around a half hour, which is slightly above the national average. More than 90% of residents use cars as their primary mode of transportation, while only 1% relies on the city’s public transit systems. The interstate highways that go through the city offer a hassle-free driving experience.

Mild Temps

Nashville has always been known for its pleasant weather. Never too hot or too cold, the temperature keeps relatively stable all year round. With over 200 days of sunshine in a year, Nashville days are usually picture perfect. Icy roads are common in the winter, so it's best to keep an eye out if you’re driving early in the morning.

More people are flocking to Nashville than ever to take advantage of the job market boom. In a city of almost 667,000 people, Nashville-Davidson has an aggregate household income of $20.6 billion. This shows that working in Nashville is generally very rewarding.

While 91% of Nashville residents drive to work, only 1.8% of them are in the business of professional driving. There's a serious shortage of professional and commercial drivers in Nashville.
