Talk about The It City at its best. The creators of ABC’s “Nashville” turned their lenses on our town last night and blew our socks off. The country saw Printer’s Alley and The Bluebird Cafe. The Ryman and the Opry Stage. The Capitol Grille and the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge. All in their best light. In fact, we were so fired up after the show, we went out and caught a few folks making the most of “Nashville’s” It City highlights.
ABC’s perspective was picture-postcard perfect. The close-ups were riveting – spot on examples of Only-In-Nashville images. The swooping panoramas from north, south, east, and west were breathtaking.
But there’s more. So much more to explore and experience in The It City. More to come, surely, from “Nashville” as the drama unfolds week to week and the sights and sounds of our magnetic metropolis overtake the screen. And more to come from you, who know Nashville best of all.
Is your favorite place in The It City a classic? Like Tammy’s “Stand By Your Man,” which made a cameo appearance in “Nashville”? Or is it a new number, like “If I Didn’t Know Better,” the haunting ballad Scarlett and Gunnar sang to close out the first episode?
