Neighborhood Profile: Music Row

Music Row is one of the most interesting places to live in Nashville. It is a small neighborhood bordering Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities, downtown Nashville, and Hillsboro Village and 12 South neighborhoods. With vintage homes turned into recording studios, Music Row is a bustling and lively area of town to put down roots.


History and What It Has to Offer


Considered to be the hub of the Nashville music industry, country songs have popularized this stretch of blacktop that thrums with the music of our city. When you have an out-of-town guest visiting, Music Row is one location they all want to see. The name, Music Row, was born out of the legend of Nashville, with the first music business opening on Music Row over 64 years ago in 1954!


This area of Nashville is deemed a national treasure – and is a coveted Nashville neighborhood, with the old and historic buildings and homes lining the streets. Because of Nashville’s exponential growth in recent years, and more people trying to squeeze in, to maintain the history and treasure of this historical area, the Music Row Neighborhood Association works to preserve the living history of this special neighborhood.



What to Expect if You Buy in Music Row


From post-World War cottages to vintage bungalows, the housing in Music Row is a vintage lover’s dream! If you look to buy in the Music Row area, you’ll find many young professionals and some families. Because of a high demand and fewer homes due to a smaller zone of neighborhood, it is a pricier Nashville area.

However, you have at your fingertips the heart of the city, walkability to local eats and businesses, and great public transportation options.
