Tongue-in-cheek video takes viewers on honest tour of Nashville


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Ah, Nashville… The “it” city where natives are becoming extinct, traffic is worsening, and the cost of living appears to steadily rise.

We all know it’s true – but we also know Music City is one of the best around, a fact proven by all the transplants we’ve acquired.

A local production company, That’s Classic, highlights this beautiful juxtaposition in a new tongue-in-cheek video called “Welcome to Nashville.” They posted it to YouTube on Sunday.

The duo behind the company takes viewers on a tour around the city, highlighting not only the greatest aspects but also the ones about which you find yourself complaining—traffic, rental prices, losing sports teams… you name it, it’s mentioned.

While all the lyrics are pretty on point, here are a few gems:

“Bellevue, Belle Meade and Brentwood aren’t far away, but the cops are a little anal so drive slow or you’ll pay.”

“And the Predators win! The Sounds take the game! And the Titans…”

“But head East to a place where the chicken is super hot. Grab a drink, read a book, walk home but don’t get shot.”Watch the video in the player above this story, and click here if you can’t see it from your mobile device.
