Nashville may be known as the country music capital of the world, but today many businesses and industries are changing its reputation as a developing tech hub. The metropolitan city gives a unique accent to the technology field. 

In Middle Tennessee alone, the tech industry is now valued at more than $8 billion and is a big reason why Nashville is growing so fast. 1

According to Nashville’s tourism board, more than 80 people a day are moving to Nashville, and the number is steadily increasing. Growing more than 36% in the last five years, more than 60,000 people in the area hold technology jobs.2 While Nashville’s tech force is on a much smaller scale compared to regions like Silicon Valley, Music City is growing more quickly. 

Growing another 16% by 2024, Nashville is quickly becoming the tech hub of the South. Local analysts say by bringing in people from outside areas to Nashville with the appeal of lower taxes, good quality of life and a booming job market, is setting Nashville up to be one of the technology leaders in the near future. 3
