Nashville is a big city. Where will your job be? Manchester (Coffee County) is 65 miles from Nashville. You can look up distances on mapquest.

thanks for the reply. around providence, near the nashville airport. i did look up mapquest. I know sometimes travel may be longer due to traffic that is why I asked how far the commute would be with traffic. I really wanted reviews about christina and these other areas. I have researched but it is nothing like recieving information from the locals i think coffee county is out of the question! too far! I didnt realize it was that far! but I saw great prices on land and homes and it was in the country. that is what we are looking for.

Any of those locations will probably require a 45+minute commute to Nashville, unless traffic is just abnormally good for some reason. If your job will be near the airport and you would like to live in a "country" type setting, why not look at the area south of Mt. Juilet, between Hobson Pike (171) and 840? You could probably find a house in the area that is still fairly "country-like" but you could get on I-40 and be to the area near the airport fairly quickly. Although, I'm not sure what "Providence" is, unless you're talking about the shopping area in Mt. Juliet. In that case you'd be even closer.

You might want to look east of there along the I-40 corridor. Wilson County has grown quite a bit, I'm not sure how good of a deal you can get on land around there, but maybe in the more rural parts of eastern Wilson County you can find some deals. Also check out Smith County. It's a beautiful area--rolling hills, lovely farm land. And you can get to the airport area pretty quickly on I-40.

DeKalb county is right next to I-40, and near Watertown in Wilson county. Once you cross into DeKalb from Wilson, taxes go WAY DOWN ( 300 a year for 6 year old 4 bedrooms and 7 acres ). Only 24.00 a year for car tags and theres no automobile inspections or wheel tax to worry with so you can drive anything you want to even if it's barely running.Did I say landtax is also super cheap? I'm fixing to turn 40 next month, and not much has changed in these parts in many years. When I was driving to Vanderbuilt twice a week, it took about 40 minutes to get there from where I live in DeKalb. Theres not a traffic light in four towns in a row out here.
