Going back home after 20 years was quite the experience. I was very disappointed in the commercialization of Brentwood and Franklin. Gone were the 2 lane country roads and farmland replaced by malls, hotels and restaurants.
Downtown Nashville has changed drastically also but, in my opinion, for the better. The downtown area used to be an unwelcoming place full of peep shows and dives. Nashville has gotten smart and embraced the Country Music and transformed the downtown area into a beautiful thriving tourist attraction.
