11 Undeniable Things You’ll Find In Every Nashville Home
Tennessee is known for rolling hills and craggy mountains, but there are a few things that the capital city keeps on hand at all times. By all times we mean 24/7, every day, 100% of the time. Pretty much. Take a look at the eleven we have below (helloooo Jack Daniel’s!) and let us know which items should – or shouldn’t – be on the list. We’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
1. Bug repellent!
Our Tennessee summers are hot, humid and a whole lot of buggy. If you don't have any extra bug repellent on hand we'd recommend you run - not walk - to the grocery store.
2. A bit of Jack.
Jack Daniel's is a bit of Tennessee legend, one of our hometown heroes that makes its way to the furthest reaches of the world. You really should have a solid bit of whiskey in your liquor cabinet, especially if that liquor cabinet is situated in the Volunteer State.
3. A bible waitin' on Sunday.
We crack our the holy book open every day, but it has a special bit of time reserved for Sundays. What else would you expect from the buckle of the Bible Belt?
4. A grill, tucked away for warmer months.
Grilling out is a southern tradition, and Tennessee folk are no different.
5. A firearm or two.
Tennesseans are big fans of the 2nd Amendment, and do their best to keep their rights intact and guns safely tucked away from wandering hands.
6. A bit of family history.
Whether it's a family photo, an old recipe book or handful of vintage clothing, you're bound to find a bit of family history tied up in a Nashville home.
7. Hiking boots.
We have some of the best hiking trails in the state, especially when it comes to easy and moderate trails, so getting out in the great outdoors is bound to keep you happy.
8. A fishing pole.
What else do you do, down by the crick?
9. A gaggle of kids and grandkids and cousins.
The south is a sweet space for family, and Nashville keeps its loyalty to local families and kids even with its "big city" status.
10. Full kitchen cupboards.
You popping over for a quick visit? We have a meal for that! Looking for a fast glass of iced tea on the porch? Got that too! A full pantry is simply an easy way to be hospitable, and Nashvillians are nothing if not kind.
11. A whole lot of Tennessee pride.
Because where would we be without it?
You may think you know everything about a Nashvillian right about now, but these
eleven tried-and-true things are bound to get on their nerves.
