Nashville’s growing popularity
Portland, Las Vegas, Austin. Some of the cities that have become trendy in recent years.
But, don’t forget about Nashville for it seems to be leading the pack. The airport reported that 2018 was not only the third year in a row that it added more than 1 million additional passengers, it was also the first year that there were more than one million users every single month.
The airport is working hard to keep up with the city’s growing popularity. Plans are in the works to build a new terminal by 2023. It will also add more parking, a state-of-the-art international arrivals facility, a new concourse, more security checkpoints, an airport administration building and even an on-site hotel.
What’s the reason for its growing popularity?
The Grand Ole Opry, Music Row and the Country Music Hall of Fame have always been popular tourist destinations but, it seems, more people are coming to the city just because it’s a cool place to visit.
And, a cool place to hold bachelorette parties.
It’s true. It seems Nashville has taken over as the Bachelorette Party Capital of the United States, leaving Las Vegas at the altar.
In May 2018, a panel of hospitality experts at the Hospitality Design Expo and Conference said Nashville has become the favorite place for a bride and her best gal pals to celebrate upcoming nuptials.
“It’s one of those places where you can’t not have fun,” Gary Dollens, global head of brand development for Hyatt Hotels, said at the convention.
Nashville expects to have 53,000 hotel rooms by 2020, Bruce Ford, director of global business development for Lodging Econometrics, a hotel services firm, said at the convention.
While that is still less than half of Las Vegas’ 125,000 rooms, Nashville’s growth is expected to keep climbing largely because it has found a way to appeal to all age groups where Vegas’ fun times, which often involve drinking and gambling, pretty much shut out all but a partying, over-21 crowd.
While Nashville is a great place to visit for people of any age, the city seems to know it’s important to appeal to those younger travelers of legal age who might also be considering Las Vegas as their destination. These include the elite travelers who charter private jet into BNA. And, those A-listers won’t have trouble finding a place to stay. The city expects a 60 percent growth in upscale hotel rooms. It now has about 7,000.
And then there are the celebrities
Many of the chartered private jets that land at Nashville International carry A-list entertainers coming to the city for an engagement or the celebrities that actually live in Nashville.
In July 2018, the Tennessean asked its readers which of the celebrity couples who live in Nashville is the Most Famous Power Couple. These are the Nashville-resident couples that were listed in the survey:
- Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
- T Bone Burnett & Callie Khouri
- Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher
- Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood
- Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman
- Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires
- Kristin Cavalliri & Jay Cutler
- Maren Morris & Ryan Hurd
- Karen Fairchild & Jimi Westbrook
- Vince Gill & Amy Grant
- Brad Paisley & Kimberly Williams-Paisley
- Hillary Scott & Chris Tyrrell
- P.K. Subban & Lindsey Vonn
- Kelsea Ballerini & Morgan Evans
- Blake She]lton & Gwen Stefani
Surprise! Or not much of one: Blake and Gwen – with Tim McGraw & Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher not far behind.
Nashville International Airport began in 1937 as a 340-acre site located along Murfreesboro Road that was built as a Works Progress Administration project. It was called Berry Field in honor of Colonel Harry S. Berry, who was the administrator of the WPA in Tennessee.
In fact, that is where Nashville International gets its BNA airport code – Berry Nashville.
It had a terminal, two hangars, one runway and a flashing beacon. The first commercial carriers to use the airport were American and Eastern airlines.
It was enlarged and used by as the military base for the 4th Ferrying Command during World War II. When the federal government returned the airport to the city of Nashville after the war, it was a much larger 1,500 acres.
It served the city until the late 1950s when, bursting at the seams, expansion plans began. In 1961, a year after jet service began, Nashville opened a new 145,900-square-foot passenger terminal.
By 1977, the airport property was 3,300 acres. There were three runways. The passenger terminal had been remodeled and expanded but the airport would keep growing.
In 1984, a new terminal was in the works. A new 750,000-square-foot passenger terminal was opened in 1987. Two years later, a parallel runway was opened.
The airport remained Berry Field until 1988, when it changed its name to Nashville International Airport.
However, a military presence – as well as the name Berry Field – remains at Nashville International.
Berry Field is the name of the Tennessee Air National Guard complex at the airport. Its airlift wing is located at the southern end of the field.
