10 Nashville Headlines In The National News

1. We’re the 7th fastest growing city in the U.S. Part of the reason for our popularity: Our booming healthcare industry. “About half of all the for-profit hospital beds in the country are administered from Nashville,” said Matthew Wiltshire, head of Nashville's department of economic and community development. “Healthcare is a $30 billion industry here.”

Tired of so much traffic congestion in Nashville? How about a monorail to unstop the jam? The Tennessee Senate has voted 31-0 to study the feasibility of building a Music City monorail.
