Nashville’s Life at Night – Where the Cars Are The Stars
Flying down the street aptly named Broadway in the heart of downtown Nashville, a John Deere tractor towing a party wagon pulls up to a bar unloading screaming passengers dressed in sequined vests, cowboy boots, and sashes reading “Team x Bride.”
One-by-one the party-goers stream like music from a hitched wagon, taking their place in que at the salon from which country cover songs, played by a live band, pulsate on to the city streets. But here in downtown Nashville, on this clear but definitively brisk Southern night, the ladies of the night are the cars that don’t just parade up and down the avenues -- these vehicles roar, with the bass-like sound of high-performance engines with body design customized Southern style, made more glorious when illuminated by neon signage in a way that makes the most sun-worn vintage pickups look “Fast & Furious” camera-ready.
Confirming the universal appeal that drives an average of 16 million tourists spending $9 billion every year to the Music City is beyond the great country artists and songs the city produces: it’s in the spirit of this quintessentially Southern town, especially at night.
