I like Nashville better. It's the largest city in Tennessee.

According to the US Census for 2015 (the latest released):


646,000 Memphis
626,000 Nashville


These numbers have been rounded down without changing the accuracy.


Why this makes a difference is questionable; although many people prefer one over the other due to the fact that the racial numbers are interestingly reversed in the cities and still others project that is the reason for the dynamic of one city over the other. (and willingness for outside investment due to this) Perhaps OP falls into one of these influences.

Those aren't the 2015 numbers. The 2015 numbers for city population will be released in May. It looks like what you quoted are the 2010 numbers (the official Census, not the estimates) for Memphis and for Davidson County (in 2010, Nashville had 601,222).

The latest estimates are for 2014:
Memphis - 656,861
Nashville - 644,014

The 2015 numbers will probably show a near dead heat. Not that it matters.

Nashville. But I chose to move here (and not Memphis, Atlanta, Louisville, or other cities) in 2012. I'm sure the Memphis voters would be similar. Most self select for our favorite city. I lived in Memphis for a few months 10 years and while I enjoyed my time there I would live in all of the cities listed previously before moving there.

Its Nashville, but in the coming years you are going to get more and more people say Memphis. I think Nashville will make a mistake by becoming complacent and arrogant towards Memphis, because The Ville may wake up and see Memphis become a serious challenge again. If you been to Memphis and seen all the stuff they done/ are doing you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't been to Memphis in the past 5 10 years you probably think I'm talking out the side of my neck.

Even though it is nice to compare, I don't necessarily see the point at pitting the two cities against each other. They are still part of the same state and IMO enjoy a symbiotic relationship. Tennessee would be doing a lot better economically if it could find a way to replicate some of Nashville's success throughout the rest of the state.

How could areas like Memphis replicate Nashville's success?
