Hi Hi Friends!
Okay so if you don’t know about “That’s How We Nashville”, I am using today’s post to shed some more light on the idea, to revamp the brand, and to give insight on the what and why of the brand!
In case you missed it, Nashville is a city currently thriving as one of the fastest growing in the US. People are moving from all over to come to the small town feel, big city vibes Music City! Nashville was also named one of the friendliest cities in the world in 2021.
I am a Nashville native, and I am dang proud of that. As a native, I truly have such a passion for this city and the charm this city exudes. The atmosphere is one of respect, class, and southern hospitality.
It is not unusual to strike up an elevator conversation with a stranger or to then find out he/she knows your grandma’s best friend’s cousin!
It is not uncommon to hear phrases like, “I’ll pray for you”, “bless your heart”, or “I am thankful for you”!
In Nashville, we stay away from gossiping, but we share everyone’s prayer requests!
Oh, how I love Nashville!✨
But, I believe Nashville isn’t this way from a lack of effort.
Something I have learned over the years is that it is unlikely for things to just happen. Most of what I am or what I have is a by product of hard work, tough choices, and building upon the foundations laid before me. It comes with effort and drive.
This is just the same with a great city — Nashville is a by product of what the people of the city put into it.
Nashville is the way it is in part because of the people that reside in the city. With that said, many people move here with their own opinions and diversities which is so great, but a common thread that needs to continue to bleed into Nashville’s atmosphere to keep Nashville what it is –> KINDNESS.
“In a world where you can be anything — just Be Kind”. That is your contribution. That is what continues to be impressive about Nashville. And that — well, That’s how we Nashville.
This brand was in efforts to continue to have Nashville stay the charming, kind city that it is. It does not stay friendly without the efforts of the citizens of the city. There are 100+ people moving to Nashville everyday. What must be brought with you is kindness, or the city looses its charm that brought you to it.
A city and a place is a by product of the people there. Just as we are by products of the Truth we live by.
So Be Kind. That’s How we Nashville!
To recap in case above was too many words:
“That’s How We Nashville”
What is it? A branding of Nashville that illuminates “Nashville” as not just a place to live, but a way to live. It is the people that reside in a city that make it what it is, and the kindness in the people of Nash keep it the city we all love!
Why did I start this? As a Nashville native, I am passionate about Nashville staying the charming, southern hospitable city that I grew up in. I want to promote the message that it does take effort by residents to keep Nashville kind and charming. Nashville isn’t great because it can give you things; Nashville is great because of what it has been given by the people in the city.
Why should you care? To keep this city a great place to live, we must continue to promote kindness in the hearts of people that live here. As the city grows, let’s all make an effort to also grow in kindness and respect to those we share this great place with. That way it will continue to be a great city.
How to represent? Spread the message of staying kind to others by representing the brand! There are t-shirts for purchase to rep the brand, and I am pumped because there are some new styles coming soon!
Nashville is a way to live, not just a place to live.
Continue to be kind and spread the southern charm that makes this city so sweet.
Because that’s how we Nashville!
