Some of the most iconic types of music most famous in Nashville are country, bluegrass, rock n roll, blues, and indie rock.

Nashville is a city that’s better suited to those who are looking to live amongst a dense population in a growing tourist region. Many neighbors will come and go but Nashville holds a special place for emerging artists and those who love working in hospitality. It is also worth noting that the cost of living is low compared to other major cities.


This list would be nothing without mentioning Memphis. Especially if we are talking about music and Tennessee in the same sentence. In case you weren’t aware, Memphis is one of the birthplaces of blues and rock and roll. There’s even a specific genre called Memphis blues that was formed by Frank Stokes, Memphis Minnie, and Sleepy John Estes.

Back during the industrialization of the U.S., this area expanded rapidly due to the cotton industry and its access to the railroad and the river. Right before the turn of the century, Memphis was the site of one of the country’s worst race riots. In the 1960s, Memphis was drastically shaped by the civil rights movement as it was the location of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Memphis is a land that has endured many historical events and is a pride of those who are natives. If you are thinking of checking out Memphis houses for sale, you will not be disappointed to learn that the cost of living is generally lower in Memphis. There is plenty to do at the Memphis Zoo, the Children’s Museum of Memphis, or the Grand Carousel. And if that’s not enough fun, check out Graceland and experience the way Elvis lived.


It may just be because Tenessee is so great, but their average costs of living in most of their cities are well below the national average. All of these cities are considered reasonably low costs of living and that’s just some of the benefits of living in Chattanooga. Additionally, you would be happiest here if you were looking for outdoor vibes paired with suburban options.

This area is growing quickly in the last few years and its residents tend to be young families. Public schools are considered to be above average and the median household is under $200k. It’s also been rated one of the best places to retire. Not to mention that although Chattanooga experiences all four seasons, it’s one of the sunniest places in the south.

All of these great Tennessee neighborhoods are great options for moving your family. All it takes is a bit of research to determine exactly what you are looking for when you move. Once you know your requirements for your family’s needs, it's easy to locate some options within those specifications. Ultimately, Tennessee is a great place to live for those looking at a reasonable cost of living and not sacrificing as much to get it.
