“Nashville” to Stay in Nashville

Believe it or not, there was a possibility that the next season of the ABC-TV series Nashville would actually not be filmed in Music City. Reports had surfaced that the show might move to another city, such as Atlanta or Dallas, to cut down on location costs or to acquire more money in incentives.

But the city and state came through with an $8 million incentive package to keep the show's production in Nashville. That's certain to make both local residents and out-of-town visitors happy. It is estimated that the production has a $40 million impact on Nashville and provides nearly 500 jobs for local workers. Tourists often note that the show inspired them to visit Music City and its many landmarks, including the Bluebird Cafe and the clubs on Lower Broadway.

Nashville was recently renewed for a third season, which will get underway in the fall. We at Country Weekly welcome the show back with open arms!
