You do realize that you responded to my reply to another poster, don't you?

I'll go to my grave saying the boom the city is enjoying was only marginally driven by the show.

That said, of course having it continue would be a good thing. I'm glad to hear it, for both the fans and the city. Sounds like this is probably the best case scenario...CMT makes a lot of sense...and a partnership with Hulu is encouraging.

From what I read, critics were pretty harsh on them this season so hopefully the writers are able to kick it up a notch and not make this a final season victory lap.

edit: also it's great timing for CMT to announce this with CMA fest going on.

I disliked "The Office" but have no problem with those who enjoyed it. I agree that "Friday Night Lights" was very good. If you want to see them return, however, why not follow the example of "Nashville" fans and advocate for them?? That change.org "Renew Nashville for season five" petition has 173,256 signatures right now, and it's gaining signers at the rate of close to 1,000 per day.

Seems to me that indicates that "Nashville" IS "something that people want to watch". No, this last season was not great, given the poor writing and unlikely plot scenarios, but the new showrunners should easily take care of that, while the outstandingly talented regular cast members and gorgeous city - and of course, the music, the wonderful music - remain the series' strongest assets.

Sorry you didn't appreciate them.
The ratings were bad. The music was bad. The storylines were terrible and hard to follow. Tourism in Nashville was doing just fine without ABC's Nashville. The TV show made the city look like a joke at times. It was a very sleezy show and portrayed the music industry here poorly. The show was based around East Nashville, Belle Meade and downtown. Crap, even some of the scenes in Nashville were unrealistic.

They filmed elsewhere too.

Scenes were filmed in Sumner County, the area around Trevecca Univ, Lebanon Rd in Donelson,
Mount Olivet Cemetery....

Fort Campbell, the Parthenon, and Hillsboro Village were also used as locations. I think Fall Creek Falls State Park was used for Will's getaway/runaway location a couple of seasons ago, and Cheekwood stood in for...the Nashville Zoo! (that's always puzzled me). The "Spirit of Music" statue (I may have the name slightly wrong) appeared in the first season as the backdrop for a video featuring Juliette Barnes. Deacon's waterfront cabin is not anywhere downtown, or in east Nashville, or in Belle Meade. The center hallway of Andrew Jackson's "The Hermitage" stood in for Rayna's father's elaborate home. The church from which Juliette was a runaway bride is a local suburban church.

And of course, both the Ryman and the Grand Ole Opry out at Opryland have been featured heavily. The "General Jackson" riverboat was also used as a location during the first season (which did seem to showcase the city more and better).

It's been a long time since I spent a year in Nashville during grad. school, and I have no doubt present-day locals recognized other landmarks and locations used for filming "Nashville". It certainly was not limited to east Nashville, downtown, and Belle Meade. Perhaps those who think this was the case need to explore this beautiful city more thoroughly.

Also, the Gulch, Germantown and the Bicentennial Mall (remember Marcus and his concert?)

But after the first season they built multiple sets in North Nashville and made interiors of the houses and offices to exact replicas.

The highway 65 office exterior The highway 65 offices is on church street at about 7th.

The exterior of Juliet's beautiful beautiful modern house is in Oak Hill. It was also in a rascal Flatts video.

Deacon's river cabin is out by the Opry. I was put at the soundstage today and everything is still in tact hoping for a pick up.

I don't understand how a city could experience a tourism boom thanks to a show with bad ratings that was inevitably cancelled. It doesn't make sense. IMO, Nashville is an appealing destination for tourists for a variety of reasons, but the fact that country music ITSELF is part of popular culture right now is driving it more than some terrible TV show.

It makes a lot of sense.


“It’s hard to put a financial [number] on it, just because it’s so broad, so big and it really has been significant,” said Butch Spyridon, president of the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp, adding that “Nashville” airs in almost 100 countries: “It would take my budget for the next 10 years to run our commercial every week in 100 countries.”

Also - look at what it did for pretty much every venue mentioned on the show.
