A subtle nod to our southern Hollywood hip-ness, of course.

Because East Nashville needed it’s own song. Even with it’s lack of skyline.

Can’t we all relate to this one…?

13) Nashville Without You – Tim McGraw

Ugh. SO CUTE, Tim! Just stop it already – we’re single.

12) Murder On Music Row – George Strait & Alan Jackson

A bit of old school twang to get you in the mood.

90’s Trisha Yearwood gets us every time – Garth got himself a good woman.

10) West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown – Jimmy Buffett

One of our favorite Jimmy Buffett tunes.

Nashville angst, anyone?

Well, that we are. If you don’t play guitar you can’t live here. No, really.

7) Tennessee Flat-Top Box – Johnny Cash

Cash simply HAD to make our top ten – obvs.

And the Queen of Country, crooning about her Middle Tennessee home – she hails from the east though, folks! SO settle down.

5) Sundown in Nashville – Marty Stuart

The prettiest time of day, if you ask us!

4) Tennessee Line – Daughtry

DAUGHTRY. Your voooooice. C’mon now – all the feels.
