Applicants for a new permit must provide proof of U.S. citizenship or lawful permanent residency. One can apply at any fullservice Driver Service Center. The application fee for a fouryear permit is $115. The cost to renew is $50, and a duplicate permit costs $5. The process includes a criminal history check. It is illegal to provide a handgun to anyone under 21. Handgun permit holders are permitted to carry their weapons into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, unless the establishment has a posted notice prohibiting firearms, and they may not consume alcohol while carrying their weapon. Handgun possession laws in public parks vary from county to county, so call the park and ask about local ordinances before carrying or operating a firearm on park property. There are exemptions to many of these rules for some security guards, police officers and members of the military. For more information, call the Tennessee Department of Safety's handgun permit office at 615-251-8590 or go to


To obtain a marriage license in Tennessee, both parties must appear together at a county clerk's office. Both parties must have proof that they are at least 18 years old, and both must have proof of a Social Security number (if they have been issued one). If one of the parties is younger than 18, he or she must be accompanied by his or her parent(s) or guardian. No one younger than 16 may be married in Tennessee without a court order. No blood tests are required and there is no waiting period once you have the license, except in certain specific situations in which one or both parties are under the age of 18

18. The marriage license is valid for 30 days and can be used for ceremonies anywhere in the state of Tennessee. The fee for a marriage license in Davidson County is $99.50. License applicants who have completed a premarital preparation course within a year of the application will receive $60 off that fee. More information is available at your county clerk's office or — for Davidson County — online at

You must register at least 30 days before a given election to vote and must provide a street address, Social Security number, birth date and birthplace.

The tax on cigarettes is 62 cents per pack of 20s and 77.5 cents per pack of 25s. With a few exceptions, smoking is banned in all enclosed public places in Tennessee, including health-care facilities, restaurants, child care and adult day-care facilities, retail stores and shopping malls, sports arenas and stadiums. Smoking laws are monitored and enforced by the Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Someone caught knowingly smoking in an area where smoking is prohibited can be fined $50. Businesses that don't comply will get one written warning. A second violation within 12 months carries a $100 fine. Each subsequent violation in a 12-month period comes with a $500 fine. Violators can be reported to the state Department of Health or the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Smoking is allowed in some areas, such as businesses, including restaurants and bars, with patrons ages 21 and older only; designated hotel and motel rooms; patios and other open-air areas; private businesses with three or fewer employees that have a designated, enclosed smoking area; and private clubs.

Music City economy

Dallas Davidson, whose office is on Music Row, is the 2010 Billboard Hot Country Songwriter of the year. While Nashville's national reputation centers on its role as Music City, the economy is more diversified than most might guess — a fact that has helped this region weather recent tough times. Still, the national recession has kept unemployment uncomfortably high here, with the jobless rate in the vicinity of 8.5 percent. Here’s a look at how various sectors have fared.


Nashville is home base to hundreds of health-care companies, including hospital giants HCA and publicly traded Community Health Systems, two of the nation’s biggest such chains. The area also gets an employment and research boost from well-known academic and research institutions such as Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Meharry Medical College. Health care is generally seen as the Nashville area’s most attractive economic sector.


A Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce study suggested that the music industry provides an economic impact of some $6.4 billion a year, with average earnings ranging from $10.69

an hour for entry-level musicians and singers to $38.87 an hour for more experienced performers and record label staffers. Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw make a lot more than that, but the strength of Nashville as Music City is mostly built on the lyrics and licks of workaday players and songwriters.


Separately, the hospitality and convention business continues to play a key role in Nashville’s economy. A new convention center south of Broadway — dubbed the Music City Center — is under construction and due to open in 2013. Gaylord Entertainment’s Opryland Hotel was damaged in the May 2010 floods but reopened in time for Christmas that year with an updated look. It is drawing rave reviews this year.


Home prices have held up well in the Nashville area, with the median home price hitting $150,000 in recent months. Real estate analysts say Middle Tennessee never saw a big runup in prices during the real estate boom and thus didn’t collapse when the U.S. recession hit. 23

Robots have a big role in the assembling of parts inside the body shop at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga.


Newcomers seeking a future here in a variety of fields are good news for area colleges. The presence of several universities, including Vanderbilt, Tennessee State, Middle Tennessee State, Belmont, Lipscomb and Cumberland, not only provides jobs but also adds to the local workforce since many students stay in the area after graudation.


The Nashville area is also known as a transportation and warehouse hub, thanks to the meeting of interstates 65, 40 and 24. The region has become a solid jumping-off point to ship commercial goods to consumers in the Deep South, East or Midwest.


The vibrant auto industry has endured a few setbacks, but a new Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga and a new battery plant for Nissan North America in Smyrna near Nashville are among bright spots. The General Motors plant in Spring Hill remains underutilized, but hopes are that it will eventually 24

The school, along with its medical center, is the top employer in Nashville. attract a new assembly line product as GM slowly improves sales. GM also has a new four-cylinder engine assembly line on tap for Spring Hill, and auto hiring is expected to continue a slow improvement as the U.S. economy and consumer purchases rebound.

Davidson County

The Nashville skyline looms over the 2011 CMA Music Festival at Riverfront Park.


In Antioch, your neighbor or favorite shopkeeper may be from Somalia, Mexico or Laos. Homes are affordable, and the community is popular with first-time buyers and young families with children.


In Bellevue, it's possible to get more house for the money than in other places in the county. With good schools and activities, the area is popular with families, even as it rebuilds from the flood of 2010. One of Nashville's landmark restaurants, The Loveless CafĂŠ, is here, as are the Warner Parks.


Life near Percy Priest Lake keeps this area popular. The Hermitage, home of President Andrew Jackson, is one of Tennessee's best-known landmarks. The Grand Ole Opry and Gaylord Resort and Convention Center also make this area popular for tourists. Commuter rail service to downtown Nashville and Lebanon and the accessibility of Nashville International Airport also help to make this area appealing.


This older neighborhood has been a mecca for artists, musicians and young professionals who have led the charge in renovating Victorian and other architecturally interesting homes. Many will tell you there's a sense of community in East Nashville unlike any other spot in town. The Five Points area, with its blend of eclectic restaurants and shops, makes it a popular destination for East Nashvillians as well as from other parts of the city.


Germantown, an area of 18 square blocks just north of the Bicentennial Mall, was Nashville's first residential subdivision. In the past decade, the neighborhood has seen tremendous revitalizing of many of the buildings, including the Werthan Bag Co. that was redeveloped into Werthan Lofts. Many of the original homes in the area still stand and have been repurposed for business use as well as residences. The area also boasts new mixed-use developments that were constructed in keeping with the original character of the area. The neighborhood, with many of its buildings dating back to the 1830s, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. 31

Development has boomed in the downtown area of Nashville called The Gulch.


A shopping mecca, upscale homes and close proximity to Belle Meade and the West End corridor make this area one of the the premier neighborhoods in the county. The area offers a wide array of trendy boutiques, including Hill Center Green Hills, Graces Plaza and Greenbriar Village (which will be the home of local author Ann Patchett's new bookstore, Parnassus Books, scheduled to open in October); The Mall at Green Hills with designer shops such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Burberry and the recently added Michael Kors and Nordstrom. Public schools Hillsboro High and Julia Green Elementary are top notch, and one of the area's finest private schools, Harpeth Hall (for girls only) is in the community.


In the last decade development in this once forgotten railroad corridor has boomed into one of Nashville's pride and joys. A partnership between the city and developer MarketStreet Enterprises has created a mixed-use area offering affordable and upscale condominiums and apartments as well as some of Nashville's most popular dining establishments, entertainment venues shopping and office space. The area was 32

the first neighborhood in the South to receive "LEED for Neighborhood Development" certification from the United States Green Building Council. The revitalization of the area has enhanced downtown living, which continues to improve.


Home to both Vanderbilt and Belmont universities, this area is one of the few remaining areas of all-local neighborhood merchants. The strip offers a myriad of shopping options including antiques, jewelry, home furnishings and clothing. The area is home to some of Nashville's most popular eateries, including Sunset Grill, Pancake Pantry, Boscos, Jackson's and Sam's Sports Grill. Home of the historic Belcourt Theatre, the area is a destination point for resident and tourists alike.


These communities in the northern portion of the county feature good deals on homes and a strong tax base because of RiverGate Mall and many auto dealerships. Goodlettsville has its own city government after choosing to remain autonomous when Nashville merged with the county in 1963. It is also the home of Dollar General Corp.'s corporate headquarters.

The U.S. Customs House at 701 Broadway was something of a payoff for Southern support in Rutherford B. Hayes' bid for the presidency, so close it ultimately went to the Republican only after a decision by an electoral commission. Hayes laid the cornerstone on Sept. 19, 1877. He was the first president to visit the South since the Civil War.

Cheatham County

Teri Johnson-Hiett and her daughter T'ea, 8, read near the pond at L.L. Burns Park in Kingston Springs.


Ashland City was created in 1856 as the county seat for the newly formed Cheatham County. Ashland City continues to gain distinction as a bedroom community for Nashville and the greater Davidson County area because of its accessibility to the larger Metro area and the more secluded and simple atmosphere found there. The Cheatham County area is comparatively rural and undeveloped, making it a popular place to raise a family. Montgomery Bell established and operated a forge, several miles to the southwest, the first major industry in the area in 1818. Today the city is home to the world headquarters of the A.O. Smith Water Products Co., a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial water heaters and boilers.


Kingston Springs, originally developed as a resort town along the railroad that ran between Nashville and Dickson, was known for its hot springs. Today, the town is home to a massive parks system with trails weaving around the Harpeth River. Country singer Craig Morgan was born in Kingston Springs,

but there's more to the town's musical side: The Fillin' Station on Main Street hosts songwriter nights, blues jams and rock bands, and not far away, Red Tree Coffee hosts live music on Friday nights.


Situated halfway between Nashville and Clarksville in the northern part of the county, Pleasant View is a small but growing bedroom community. Originally known as Bradley's Stand and Turnbull Horse Stamp, the town was named Pleasant View in 1870. The telegraph lines from Nashville to Clarksville ran through the town, which also served as a stagecoach stop and rest area between the two cities. Commercial development has taken hold as the town has become the commercial center for northern Cheatham County and nearby Coopertown in Robertson County. Community life centers on youth softball in the summer and War Eagle football at Sycamore High School in the fall. Each summer, the Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department hosts its annual parade and picnic. 39

Dickson County

Dickson County is home to Burns, a rural community of picturesque farmland that offers vistas such as this.


Burns, with a population of 1,504, was first known as Grade 42. In 1866 the name was changed to Burns Station. The name Burns was in honor of Capt. Michael Burns, who had commanded a detachment encamped at Grade 42 during the Civil War.


Charlotte was named for Charlotte Reeves Robertson, wife of Gen. James Robertson. The Charlotte Courthouse Square is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the oldest in Tennessee still used as a courthouse.


Dickson was named for William Dickson, a Nashville physician and legislator. It is the hometown of former Tennessee Gov. Frank G. Clement, who served from 1953-59 and again from 1963-67. His birthplace, the Halbrook Hotel, has been converted into a railroad and local history museum. Dickson is also home to The Renaissance Center, a fine arts and performing arts center that also offers educational programs.

WHITE BLUFF White Bluff, with a population of 2,623, was incorporated in 1869. Its name was derived from the white bluffs overlooking Turnbull Creek, and it's the home of barbecue favorite Carl's Perfect Pig.

Maury County

Tim Harris creates a corn maze at Rippavilla Plantation in Spring Hill. It takes about three days every fall to create the design.


Columbia is the county seat of Maury County and home to 34,681 residents, according to the 2010 census. The city is 45 miles south of Nashville and lies astride the Duck River. The city is the birthplace of the 11th president of the United States, James K. Polk, and his home, which is open to the public, is located near the center of town. Columbia has numerous other historic sites that make it a key tourist destination. Columbia is also notable for being the self-proclaimed "Mule Capital of the World." Each April, the Mule Day festival celebrates that fact.


Incorporated in 1824, Mt. Pleasant became a key stagecoach stop on one of the nation's first federal highways, the military road. Phosphate was discovered in the late 19th century, and the city quickly became a mining boomtown. Mt. Pleasant has 4,500 residents, according to a 2008 special census, and a diverse industrial base, with companies tied to Canada, Japan and Europe.


Located 30 miles south of Nashville, Spring Hill straddles the Williamson and Maury county line with incorporated areas in both counties. According to the 2010 census, Spring Hill has 29,036 residents. The town's General Motors manufacturing plant, formerly a Saturn plant that was placed on standby in 2009, is getting back on its feet, with new job openings in 2011. The county school district opened its first middle school in Spring Hill for 2010-11. Spring Hill Middle School has state-of-the-art technology, uncluding interactive whiteboards. The town is famous for its Civil War history. During the Battle of Spring Hill on Nov. 29, 1864, more than 500 Confederate and 350 Union soldiers died. That night Southern forces slept while Union soldiers passed through. The next day the Confederate army suffered 6,200 casualties at the Battle of Franklin to the north. Rippavilla, a well-preserved, 10,000-square-foot antebellum mansion, played a key role in the war, and tours offer a glimpse of original furnishings and memorabilia from the 19th century. 43

A member of the 101st Airborne Division parachute demonstration team makes a jump.


Renowned for its history and heritage, Clarksville is a fastgrowing city with a low cost of living. The city's youth and diversity have been shaped by Fort Campbell to the north and Austin Peay State University to the south. Two major developments are in the works that will alter its landscape: the incoming $1.2 billion Hemlock Semiconductor plant, promising 500-800 high-paying jobs, and the long-awaited construction of the Clarksville Marina on the Cumberland River. There are plenty of historic attractions, such as the SmithTrahern Mansion, and a variety of entertainment events that keep this transient community grounded, particularly the Rivers & Spires Festival.


Fort Campbell, an Army post on the Kentucky border established in 1942, is home to the 101st Airborne Division, the only air assault division of the Army, as well as the 5th Special Forces Group and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.

Fort Campbell soldiers were among the first ground forces deployed in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and many have served multiple deployments. Visitors to Fort Campbell must obtain a pass at the Vehicle Registration and Visitor Control center. They must present a driver's license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance.

Ann Kroeger and her children, Luke and Kate, pick lettuce for their supper from their community garden in Springfield.


Adams, an agricultural community of 648 people, is located northwest of Springfield on U.S. 41. The area is also known around the world as the home of the legendary Bell Witch. Legend has it that a spirit tormented the John Bell family during the early 1800s, and President Andrew Jackson is said to have encountered the spirit during a trip to Adams.


Coopertown, along Interstate 24 about halfway between Nashville and Clarksville, derived its name from a large cooper shop that made barrels for the nearby Red River Mills Distillery. By 1874, Robertson County distillers were producing 45,000 barrels of whiskey annually. The barrel business in the Coopertown community then produced $125,000 in business annually. According to the 2010 census, there are 3,508 residents.


The town in northern Robertson County began as Kilgore Station, an important 18th century rest stop on the road into

the Tennessee frontier. By 1812, the town of Cross Plains emerged. One of its best-known structures is Thomas Drugs, which dates to 1915 and was built on a site occupied by merchants since the town began. Thomas Drugs still features its 1930s soda fountain and is known for its old-fashioned milkshakes. According to the 2010 census, about 1,714 people call Cross Plains home.


This all-American town of 6,643 residents is best known for its Fourth of July celebration, which starts July 3 with the Turning of the Pig. A team of cooks start early that day and roasts barbecue pork all night. People line up in the early morning hours of July 4 to buy by the pound.


Millersville is in both Robertson and Sumner counties, just off Interstate 65, and 6,440 people live there, according to the 2010 census. A former school is now a community center and emergency services training center. The building is home to the Millersville Bluegrass Jam, offering evenings of bluegrass and folk music on the first and third Fridays of each month. 47

The topography and climate of Ridgetop have defined its history. Located at the edge of the Highland Rim, Ridgetop is more than 800 feet above sea level. Originally known as Nunley and then as Chancy, it took its name from the train stop known as Ridgetop Station. Construction of the 4,700-foot-long L&N Railroad tunnel — hailed at the time as one of the world's longest selfsupporting tunnels — began in 1902 and took four years to complete. The completion of the tunnel attracted wealthy Nashvillians to the area to escape the summer heat. According to a 2007 special census, 1,257 people reside here.


Springfield was established as the seat of county government in 1796, but the city was not officially founded until two years later, historians say. Springfield, about 30 miles north of downtown Nashville, is best known for the renovations to the downtown Square, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and the residential Historic District. The city has a population of 16,440, according to the 2010 census.


White House is a suburban community about 22 miles north of Nashville, lying in Robertson and Sumner counties. U.S. 31W is the dividing line between the two. While it has easy access to all of the amenities of the big city, White House maintains a small-town feel that appeals to new residents. The community has grown substantially since the 1990s from a small village to a population of 10,255. 48

Rutherford County

Kids fill the pool at Patterson Community Center in Murfreesboro.


Eagleville is Rutherford County's smallest incorporated municipality, with just over 600 residents in the 2010 census. Each June, it hosts the longest-running, one-night horse show in Tennessee at the Eagleville Tractor Show Grounds. It's also home to the Antique Tractor Pull and Show, which runs at the grounds each September.


The northernmost city in Rutherford County, La Vergne is home to 32,588 people, according to the 2010 census. Though La Vergne incorporated in 1972, its history dates to the 1700s. The city was named after Frenchman Francois Leonard Gregoire de Roulhac de La Vergne on the same day that he died in 1852. Growth in the La Vergne area has been on the rise in the past several years offering homeowners more options. The proximity of the city to Nashville and Murfreesboro makes it commuter-friendly.


Under the direction of the Tennessee Legislature, 60 acres of


land were chosen from land belonging to Captain William Lytle for a new county seat for Rutherford County in 1811. Originally called Cannonsburgh in honor of Williamson County politician Newton Cannon, the name was changed to Murfreesborough one month later at the request of Lytle — in honor of his friend Col. Hardy Murfee. In 1817 Murfreesboro was recognized as an official city and in 1818 became the capital of the state of Tennessee because of its central location Nashville regained the title as capital in 1826. The geographical center of Tennessee, Murfreesboro has emerged as one of the largest cities in the state and is home to the largest undergraduate university in Tennessee, Middle Tennessee State University. The city was named one of “The Best Places to Raise Your Kids” by Business Week magazine in 2008. Several Civil War battles were fought in and around the city, including the Battle of Stones River, one of the bloodiest battles fought in what was then called the western theater of the Civil War. In the 1920s, the federal government established Stones River National Battlefield Park. Murfreesboro is celebrating its 200th birthday this year.

Originating back to the early 1800s the area was home to several large farms and plantations. Most notable is the home of Sam Davis, a soldier in the Confederate army during the Civil War Davis was captured and tried as a courier of mails and a spy, and at the age of 21 was hung from the gallows by Union Gen. Grenville Dodge. Opened for tours in 1930, after purchase from the state of Tennessee in 1927, the home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Today you may tour the home that sits on 160 acres where cotton is still grown. The 2010 census put the population of this ever-growing northern county town at 39,974.

Sumner County

The sun set over Old Hickory Lake across from the Gallatin Steam Plant.


In 1801, inspired by Pennsylvania politician Abraham Alfonse Albert Gallatin's support of Tennessee gaining statehood, the Tennessee General Assembly christened the thennew seat of Sumner County in his honor. Gallatin the statesman went on to serve as the nation's Secretary of the Treasury and negotiate a treaty to end the War of 1812, while Gallatin the town continues to serve as the hub of its county and keeper of area history. Gallatin, located 25 miles northeast of Nashville, still serves today as the county seat of Sumner County. With a growing population of 30,504, it offers big-city opportunities and smalltown charm. The town square is its cornerstone; it features a courthouse and 19th-century buildings. Attractions include Old Hickory Lake and Bledsoe State Park. Gallatin is home to a diverse business community, including manufacturing, retail, agriculture, a regional hospital and community college.


Straddling Davidson and Sumner counties, Goodlettsville was incorporated as a city in 1958. A 2010 census showed the city had 15,761 residents. The city chose to remain

autonomous in 1963 when the city of Nashville merged with the government of Davidson County. Therefore, Goodlettsville operates a separate governmental entity than that of the Metropolitan Nashville government. It has a mayor, vice mayor and a city commission. Early notable inhabitants included Kasper Mansker, explorer and founder of Fort Mansker, near Goodlettsville, in 1780, and William Bowen Campbell, Governor of Tennessee from 1851 to 1853. Goodlettsville is also the home of Dollar General Corp.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corporate headquarters and RiverGate Mall.


Situated on scenic Old Hickory Lake, Hendersonville was incorporated in 1969. A 2010 census showed that 51,372 call the City By the Lake home. Hendersonville was settled around 1784 by the Tennessee surveyor and state senator Daniel Smith when he began work on Rock Castle, his historic home that is now a state landmark. In 1790, William Henderson, for whom the area was named, settled in and became the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first postmaster. With the completion of the Old Hickory Dam in 1965 the city of Hendersonville started to grow into the most populous city of 55

Cyan Magenta Yellow Black


Sumner County and also one of the most populous suburbs of Nashville, along with Franklin and Murfreesboro. Although best known as the home of country music stars Johnny Cash and Conway Twitty, Hendersonville has been put back on the map by teen sensation Taylor Swift, who calls the city home along with luminaries like the Oak Ridge Boys, Marty Stuart and Ricky Skaggs.


Millersville is in both Robertson and Sumner counties, just off Interstate 65, and 6,440 people live there, according to a 2010 census. A former school is now a community center and emergency services training center. The building is home to the Millersville Bluegrass Jam, offering evenings of bluegrass and folk music on the first

and third Fridays of each month.


Just 859 people call Orlinda home, according to a 2010 census. Located 13 miles northeast of Springfield, the community was originally called Washington Tract, the town was later renamed Crocker’s Crossroads or Crockersville for a landowner. In 1887 the town became Orlinda when the U.S. Post Office rejected Crocker’s Crossroads.

Williamson County

Suzanne Dunnivant, left, and Shari Watkins cruise down Franklin’s Main Street.


Brentwood hugs the southern Davidson County line extending roughly between Nolensville Road in the east to Hillsboro Road in the west. It dissolves into Franklin in the Cool Springs area, which is shared by both cities. The town was incorporated in 1969. City limits do not cross the county line, though some South Nashville neighborhoods are inside the Brentwood ZIP code. The population is 37,163, according to a 2010 census. Today it is known for its residential character and affluence, with zoning laws requiring a least one acre per house. Native Americans are thought to have lived in the area as long as 2,000 years ago. European settlement dates to the late 1780s, with the first settlers thought to have lived near Old Smyrna Road and Wilson Pike.


Fairview, nestled in far west Williamson County bordering Cheatham, Hickman and Davidson counties, was incorporated in 1959. The population is 7,720, according to a 2010 census. Commuters like the area for its access to Interstate 40 and state Route 840.

Fairview retains a rural character and in recent years was under a growth moratorium because of limited sewer capacity. It is home to the county’s largest park, Bowie Nature Park, which consists of 700 acres of forests, lakes and trails. The park has 17 miles of trails, most are shared by hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers, but some areas are designated as foot traffic only.


Franklin is the Williamson County seat and home to CoolSprings Galleria, historic treasures such as Carnton Mansion and the Carter House. The area of central Franklin that encircles the town square, also referred to as Historic downtown Franklin, encompasses 15 blocks. It was divided into 188 lots when the town was founded in 1799. The Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County, a nonprofit organization, has worked to preserve the historic city and its buildings. Most recent was the drive to save the Franklin Theatre, which just this past year celebrated a grand re-opening after a renovation project that included replacing the marquis with a replica of the original 1930s-era marquis. The 2010 census placed Franklin’s population at 62,487. 59

Nationally, the city is known to Civil War buffs as the site of a bloody fivehour battle in 1864 that shredded the Confederate Army of Tennessee and dashed one of its last hopes of military victory. The Carter House was made famous during that battle. More recently, Franklin has established a national reputation for a growing list of corporate headquarters, including Nissan North America. Franklin is home to Belmont University at Cool Springs, a campus of Columbia State Community College, O’More College of Design and Williamson Christian College.


According to legend, while traveling through Middle Tennessee with his wife and children in 1797, the wagon of William Nolen broke down, delay-

ing the travel while repairs were made to the wagon. Nolen determined that, because of the suitability of the local terrain, abundance of game and clean water from the area creeks, he would make this his family’s home. Nolen purchased property and sold lots for the town, the family constructed its home here, and the area is what is today known as Nolensville. The city lies in the northeast corner of Williamson County, abutting Davidson and Rutherford counties. A 2010 census placed the population at 5,861. First incorporated in 1838, the incorporation lapsed during the Civil War and the city was not reincorporated until 1996.


Located 30 miles south of Nashville, Spring Hill straddles the Williamson

and Maury county line with incorporated areas in both counties. According to a 2010 census, Spring Hill has 29,036 residents. The town’s General Motors manufacturing plant, formerly a Saturn plant that was placed on standby in 2009, is hoping to get back on its feet, with new job openings in 2011. The town is famous for its Civil War history. During the Battle of Spring Hill, on Nov. 29, 1864, more than 500 Confederate and 350 Union soldiers died. That night Southern forces slept while Union soldiers passed through. The next day the Confederate army suffered 6,200 casualties at the Battle of Franklin to the north. Rippavilla, a well-preserved, 10,000-square-foot antebellum mansion, played a key role in the war, and tours offer a glimpse of original furnishings and memorabilia from the 19th century.

Wilson County

Passengers disembark from the Music City Star at the Mt. Juliet station.


Lebanon, the Wilson County seat, was founded in 1801 and incorporated in 1819. Its name is rooted in the abundance of cedar trees found in the area; they inspired early settlers to name the town after the biblical city of cedars. Today, the rapidly growing city is home to 24,812 residents, according to a 2008 special census. It has become a distribution hub for companies such as Famous Footwear and Performance Food Group and the headquarters for Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. The area’s history is still evident in its Public Square as well as Cumberland University. The university was founded in 1842, burned by Federal troops during the Civil War and rebuilt in its current location in 1896. The city was also home to Castle Heights Military Academy, established in 1902 as a private school for boys and girls but later changed to an all-boys military school. The school closed in the 1980s following a decline in military school attendance nationwide during the Vietnam era.


Named Tennessee’s most friendly business city in 2010 by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, Mt. Juliet has been a 68

community for more than 150 years, officially becoming a city in 1973. In 1990, the population was just 5,400. In the last decade the city has seen tremendous growth and has boomed to more than 25,000, making it one of Tennessee’s fastestgrowing cities. The proximity to Nashville and its airport, as well as being situated between Percy Priest and Old Hickory lakes makes this bedroom community popular among families as well as businesses. Just south of Interstate 40, the megadevelopment Providence and its affluent neighbors have brought new homes and a slew of new business to the area.


Founded around the same time as Lebanon, Watertown was originally known as the Three Forks community. It was later renamed in recognition of the Waters family, who called it home. A massive fire in the early 1900s burned much of the village; today’s downtown is not too dissimilar from the one rebuilt after the fire. The tiny town is packed with cultural and tourism draws. It is known for an annual jazz festival and large-scale community yard sales held regularly. The city is also home to one of the few drive-in movie theaters in the region, the Stardust Drive-In, which opened in 2003.

Psalms 121:1 “We were so pleased with every aspect of the planning and service for my father, everything was extremely professional, and we appreciated the traditional touches. Your pricing was extremely fair and up front, and you took care of every detail we could imagine, even coming to my mom’s house to proof the program when I couldn’t leave her there alone. You made a difficult task one that was pleasant and efficient and heart felt, and thought of every detail we would not even know to ask about. My brother and I would very much recommend you to any others who are looking for dignified, traditional arrangements for their loved ones.” - J. Klein

Snow settles over Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park on Christmas morning.


This 430-acre community park has many facilities to occupy the free time of Murfreesboro residents. College students as well as hard-core players take full advantage of the 18-hole championship disc golf course, and there are picnic shelters to rent for your next summer party. More than seven miles of paved and unpaved trails are perfect for jogging or an easy walk. The park also has a well-maintained baseball and softball complex and a wilderness station with two outdoor classrooms.

BICENTENNIAL CAPITOL MALL STATE PARK This 19-acre park that sits beneath the state Capitol in downtown Nashville was designed to complement the state Capitol building. The park, which features 31 erupting geyser fountains, carillons that ring on the hour and a large grass area (the mall), is bordered by the Nashville Farmers Market, Jefferson Avenue, Sixth Avenue and the front plaza on James Robertson Parkway. Its surrounding walls are etched with a timeline of Tennessee history. Park rangers are available to educate visitors about the state's historical, natural and recreational areas. 104


Bledsoe Creek State Park in Gallatin is where visitors can see wildlife at every turn of the six miles of walking trail.

A greenway at Kelly's Point Battlefield, Brookmeade Park is in West Nashville. There's parking near the trailhead, which leads to a bike-friendly greenway and a small, simple overlook of the river.


Named for the dense cedar forest that existed in the biblical lands of Lebanon, the park consists of 900 acres of intensive recreational area and 8,100 acres of natural area. There are 117 campsites, with all the camping amenities, a modern group lodge, trails, swimming, picnic facilities, a meeting facility and nature programs.

A runner makes her way past blooming daffodils in Centennial Park.


Nashville’s flagship park is home to large grassy areas, several picnic pavilions, a small lake and, to top it all off, a decommissioned locomotive and fighter jet at the corner of West End Avenue and 25th Avenue North. It also houses The Parthenon, a replica of the Greek Parthenon in Athens, built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition. Inside, visitors will find the world’s tallest indoor sculpture, a 42-foot statue of the Greek goddess Athena, and a world-class art gallery. In warmer months, it’s the place to be for Frisbee tossers, soccer players, sunbathers and those out to be seen, lured in by the park’s sunken garden, sand volleyball courts and dog parks.


Entertainer Charlie Daniels is larger than life in the music world and in his hometown of Mt. Juliet with a park that bears his name. Folks entering the city-owned park step into an enclosed Planet Playground that resembles a castle. Picnics and fun are the name of the game at the gazebo. And what would a place named for Charlie Daniels be without a spot for music? That feature is there for all to enjoy with an amphitheater just right for the strains of all types of tunes.

The gaping mouth of Dunbar Cave is ominous but at the same time curiously enticing in Clarksville. This massive cavern has attracted mankind for countless years, evident by the recent discovery of cave paintings — a rare find in North America. Tours are offered on a varied schedule throughout most of the year, and advance reservations are necessary. The guided tour is $5 and lasts about an hour and half. Three nearby hiking trails complement the cave, as well as scenic Swan Lake, which offers recreation for those who would rather fish than spelunk.


An oasis of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau in Pikeville, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas in America. There are cascades, deep chasms (or gulfs, in local parlance), virgin timber and the Fall Creek Falls themselves, which plunge 256 feet into a shaded pool. More than half of the park is designated a natural area wilderness. The nature center provides exhibits on the geology, plants and animals of Fall Creek Falls. A 345-acre lake has yielded record-size fish. The 18-hole championship golf course has been listed among the top public courses in the United States. This area was once a home site for Gilbert Gaul, renowned Civil War genre painter.


Hamilton Creek offers 8.5 miles of mountain biking trails in Nashville. The beginner-to-intermediate trail, aka the Lakeside Trail, is 2.5 miles. The advanced trail, the Pinnacle, is six miles and popular in the mountain biking community. Pinnacle is rated hard-intermediate for the expert rider. Trail elevation ranges from 510 to 660 feet above sea level (150 feet of change). Pinnacle is rated by local mountain bikers as the fifth-most "technical" trail in Tennessee, meaning it’s rocky, rooty and requires coordination of mind and legs.


This unique linear park in Kingston Springs offers natural, cultural and recreational day use areas rich in historic significance and natural beauty. Canoe access areas are at all sites (excluding archeological areas), providing beginner and advanced paddlers opportunities to float this beautiful Class II river. Downstream, the Narrows of the Harpeth provides an upstream and downstream access, the Bell’s Bend five-mile float, a unique quarter-mile portage and breathtaking views from the bluff trail. A 100yard tunnel, hand-cut through solid rock is an industrial landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. A mile upstream, Mound Bottom preserves a Mississippian village. Group tours, hiking and other activities are available.


The park is on the old estate of Henry H. Horton, the 36th governor of Tennessee, in Chapel Hill. It’s along the Duck River, the longest remaining stretch of free-flowing river in the state. The 1,146-acre park provides a 72-room inn, seven cabins and a restaurant that seats 250 people along with meeting room space to accommodate convention and family groups. The park’s 18-hole championship golf course, with bent-grass greens and a pro shop, is one of finest in the state. The state park system’s only skeet and trap range is here. Family canoeing is also popular on the scenic Duck River. Camping and swimming are available.

Named after the early explorers of the 1700s, Long Hunter is along the shore of Percy Priest Lake in Hermitage. The 2,657-acre park offers a variety of day-use recreational opportunities and protects a unique cedar glade environment. The park has a 110-acre lake with a fishing pier. A visitor’s center provides exhibits and key information on the flora and fauna you’ll find on 28 miles of hiking trails suitable for day hiking and overnight backpacking. A satellite park called The Sellars Farm Archaeological Site is near Watertown, Tenn., and includes a Mississippian period Native American ceremonial mound and village site. Although there are no artifacts remaining, the site’s interpretive kiosk, vegetation and landscape tell a rich story about thriving Native American culture between A.D. 1000 and A.D. 1300.


They say there used to be iron in them there hills; now the rolling landscape of Dickson County serves up more awe than ore as 3,782 acres of luscious Montgomery Bell State Park landscape draw visitors to Burns just as the metallic treasure used to in days of old. Wild animals and wildflowers make homes in the soft forest bed that once was heavily cut to produce farmland and charcoal for iron industry furnaces, making the park a place of serene beauty. Sightseers can visit the location of the first Cumberland Presbyterian Church, fish in one of the park’s three lakes, hike 19 miles of trails or hit the links at the golf course. Accommodations include vacation cottages, campsites or the park inn.


Encircled by subdivisions, Mount View Glade State Natural Area is a 9-acre pocket of woodlands and fields that somehow survived the rampant sprawl that began racing across Antioch decades ago. Here you’ll find several rare plant species, including the once endangered Tennessee coneflower, and delightful scenes of undis108

turbed natural beauty. Trek into the peaceful cedar-hardwood forest, and you’ll forget that Hickory Hollow Mall is less than three miles away.

raphers will enjoy the wildlife and scenery along the park’s trails, which range from an easy walk to a challenging hike. 615-373-3467.



This 50-acre park offers plenty of outdoor fun in Murfreesboro. Lighted tennis courts attract players, and on summer evenings, you can catch a game out on one of the baseball fields. Hikers take advantage of the greenway trails, while teens can go off with their friends and hit the volleyball area. Toddlers find endless entertainment at the Kids’ Castle playground, giving moms a small break for conversation while they watch the tots. Picnic shelters are available to rent for large gatherings during the summer months.


Millions of boaters, fishermen, skiers, campers and hikers each year visit this manmade lake on the Cumberland River. The lake spans into five counties — Davidson, Sumner, Wilson, Trousdale and Smith. Fishing is popular year-round while swimmers and skiers jump in during the spring and stick around well into the fall. An abundance of wildlife can be seen in and around the lake, which is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.


This park, which sits catty-corner to the Tennessee State University campus in Nashville, is a pretty straightforward affair where nature lovers will find gentle hills and scattered trees. It’s a great place to walk dogs or to simply kick back and relax in a grassy, natural spot in the midst of a busy area. Bring a blanket and snacks to enjoy a picnic with friends or head to the park’s small dirt field for a game of softball.


The 85-acre man-made lake in Nashville is surrounded by a variety of scenic overlooks and diverse natural habitats. Hikers, families and photog-

This two-mile paved path connects McCabe Park, Nashville State Community College, White Bridge Road and the Sylvan Park area. You can walk your dogs or go for a run while eying golfers on the green, as much of the path follows the edge of the McCabe Park golf course. Like any good greenway, it’s lined with wildflowers and takes occasional turns into shady, wooded areas. Like the Shelby Park greenway, it’s largely flat, and so provides a great setting for a leisurely bike ride or walk.


Essentially a large, green lawn, this park offers a view of Charlotte that’s perfect for people-watching, and it’s also the site of the quaint Richland Park library. This is a great urban park for weekend sports, whether a game of touch football out front or a tennis match at the courts on the park’s side.


In the heart of downtown along the Cumberland River, this has been a longtime venue for outdoor concerts and summertime festivals. History buffs can cruise through Fort Nashborough, although you may stumble across a few amorous couples making out in the old buildings. The new Ghost Ballet art sculpture is on full display from here, so visitors can debate whether it is an eyesore or a boon to the city. A great spot for a cozy picnic if it isn’t too humid.


Once the location of a textile mill, Rock Island is now home to beautiful waterways including Great Falls Dam and Twin Falls. Check out the original water house for the mill — it resembles a tiny castle. Walk the trail to the Twin Falls overlook for the best view of the double waterfalls. Don’t forget

Amid a wash of fall color from the surrounding trees, a person walks at Percy Warner Park in Nashville. to bring your fishing pole — the rivers surrounding Rock Island are known for bass, catfish and walleye fishing. RV and tent campgrounds are available, as well as three-bedroom cabins. Office: 931-686-2471. Cabin reservations: 1-800-713-6065.


No matter how quickly things progress and change, you can count on two constants in the South: Good barbecue and Civil War battle re-enactments. The Battle of Stones River began on the last day in 1862 and was one of the bloodiest battles of the war. The cemetery on site may be where all the rumors of ghost activity come from in Murfreesboro. That doesn’t stop local schools from bringing kids there for field trips to learn part of their state’s history.


Meander through the wooded trails or turn that stroll into a power walk in Gallatin. There are ball fields galore, and just about every recreational sport from soccer to football is played with enthusiasm. Operated by the city of Gallatin, the park

features a playground for kids and the opportunity to play golf, but not on greens with little white balls. On this treelined course, discs sail through the air to be caught in wire nets in one of the area’s fastest-growing sports, disc golf.


The nature center is the starting point for exploring the 2,684 acres of Nashville’s Percy Warner and Edwin Warner parks. Visitors can view organic, wildflower and fern gardens as well as the Frist teaching pond. The 625-acre Edwin Warner Park boasts three trailheads. Several shorter trails offer a learning playground for nature enthusiasts who aren’t necessarily hiking friends, while the longest trail, a 2.5-mile loop, is a moderate hike that features a 1930s rock quarry. Great stone steps serve as the gateway to Percy Warner Park, the largest of the two parks. This spectacular expanse features a vehicleaccessible scenic overlook, a cross country course, a scenic overlook, a steeplechase and picnic areas. Locals undertake the 5.6and 11.2-mile loops through the park by bike and on foot, savoring challenging climbs. Less-taxing trails meander through the woods. For more information: 615-352-6299 or 109

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak, right, congratulates quarterback Jake Locker after a preseason touchdown. The Tennessee Titans will enter the 2011 season hoping to bounce back from an ugly 2010 campaign. Things started well enough for the Titans, as they roared out to a 5-2 mark after seven games. But injuries to quarterback Vince Young and receiver Kenny Britt, a verbal confrontation between Young and Coach Jeff Fisher in the locker room, and a battered defense combined to doom the team. The Titans lost eight of their last nine games to finish 6-10. All kinds of things have changed since the end of the 2010 season. The Titans cut Young, the third overall pick in the 2006 draft, and parted ways with Fisher, who'd been the franchise's coach since 1995. Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was signed to replace Young and promising rookie Jake Locker was chosen in the first round of the draft as the quarterback of the future. Former Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman who also played for this organization, replaced Fisher as head coach. The Titans hope to build their offense around running back Chris Johnson, who has run for more yards over the past three years than any other back in the league. But more than 112

halfway through training camp, Johnson was still holding out in search of a new long-term contract. As for the passing attack, the Titans want to get plenty of action for Britt, who caught a team-best nine touchdown passes last year despite playing in only 12 games. Look for tight end Jared Cook to be a popular target as well, after coming on strong down the stretch last season. Defensively, the Titans were pushed around far too often last year, which is a big reason they finished last in the league in time of possession and among the league's worst teams when it came to stopping opponents on third down. The Titans made it a priority to get bigger on the defensive line, adding 325-pound free agent Shaun Smith as well as 300pound rookies Jurrell Casey and Zach Clayton. Adding size to the linebacker position is rookie Akeem Ayers, a second-round pick who should work his way into the starting lineup quickly. Another new face to watch is middle linebacker Barrett Ruud, who replaces Stephen Tulloch, the man that led the Titans in tackles in each of the past two seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Follow The Tennessean Titansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; beat writer John Glennon on Twitter @glennonsports.

Running back Chris Johnson has been selected for the Pro Bowl for three consecutive years.



Chris Johnson didn't put up the same kind of numbers in 2010 as he did during his incredible 2009 season (2,006 rushing yards), but his 1,364 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns were enough to earn him a spot in the Pro Bowl for the third consecutive season. As if his running wasn't enough, Johnson led the Titans with 44 receptions.


Kenny Britt has had off-the-field issues and injury problems in his two years with the Titans. But there's no denying his talent. He provides the Titans with an explosive threat in the passing game, illustrated last season when he caught seven passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns against Philadelphia.


Michael Griffin was named to the Pro Bowl last season after leading the Titans with four interceptions and finishing second on the team with 153 tackles. He's always around the ball, whether the opponent is running or passing.


» The Titans have suffered a losing streak of at least six games in each of the past two seasons. » Chris Johnson is looking to become the eighth player in NFL history to begin his career with four consecutive seasons of at least 1,200 rushing yards. » One of the new additions to the coaching staff is offensive line coach Bruce Matthews, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman for the franchise who will be coaching his son, Kevin, this year.


The Titans aren't scheduled to make any national television appearances. All regular-season games are scheduled to start at noon except for the Nov. 6 game against Cincinnati (3 p.m.). The team’s flagship radio station is 104.5 FM. The Titans extended their streak of home sellouts last year to 124 straight games. But single-game tickets did not sell out on the first day available this year, the first time that's happened since 1999.

Nashville Predators

Nashville Predators left wing Martin Erat fires a shot past Anaheim Ducks goalie Ray Emery. The Predators will look for an encore to arguably the most successful season in franchise history. In 2010-11, Nashville made the second round of the NHL playoffs for the first time in the franchise's 13 years of existence. Nashville lost to Vancouver in six games during the second round but hopes to build on its momentum Coming into the season, the Predators were a quietly confident group. But injuries derailed them quickly. Nashville lost first-line center Matthew Lombardi (concussion) in the second game of the season. A top forward on the injured list would be the norm, as the Predators accrued 348 man-games lost to injury, the second-most in franchise history. But the Predators persevered. On Feb. 10 they pulled off a trade for Mike Fisher, one of the top two-way centers in the NHL. Carried by several young and up-and-coming players, the Predators parlayed a strong March and April to the fifth seed in the NHL playoffs. The Predators had trouble carrying the momentum of their successful postseason run into a strong offseason. Stalwarts such as Steve Sullivan, Marcel Goc and Joel Ward signed elsewhere as unrestricted free agents. Nashville also bought out the contract of forward J.P. Dumont. Young and talented 114

defenseman Cody Franson was traded, as was Lombardi. And in early August, the Predators took captain Shea Weber to salary arbitration. But the Predators hope additions such as forward Niclas Bergfors and defenseman Jack Hillen, as well as the development of younger players such as forwards Blake Geoffrion, Nick Spaling and Colin Wilson, and defensemen Ryan Ellis, Roman Josi and Teemu Laakso, can offset the losses. The Predators have made some changes to their coaching staff since the end of last season. Associate coach Brent Peterson stepped down to take a role in hockey operations, Peter Horachek became associate coach and Lane Lambert joined the staff as an assistant. The Predators open their regular season schedule with a pair of road games — at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 7 and at the St. Louis Blues on Oct. 8. The home opener is Oct. 13 against Phoenix Coyotes. The Preds will make at least two appearances on the NHL’s national television package. The game at the New York Rangers on Jan. 17 and their game at Chicago on March 25 have both been picked up by Versus. — Follow The Tennessean Predators’ beat writer Joshua Cooper on Twitter @joshuacooper.

Pekka Rinne makes a sprawling save against the Vancouver Canucks.



Team captain Shea Weber finished second in Norris Trophy voting last season. (The award is given to the NHL's top defenseman). His 48 points were third on the Predators, and he led the team in average ice time with 25:19. Weber was awarded a one-year, $7.5 million contract during the offseason, making him the highest-paid player in Predators history.


Pekka Rinne finished second in Vezina Trophy voting. (The award is given to the top goaltender.) He finished third in goals against average and second in save percentage during his breakout season. Rinne holds the franchise record for playoff wins (8). Rinne’s jersey was taken aboard the space shuttle Discovery in 2010 as a personal item for Col. Tim Kopra.


Alternate team captain Ryan Suter led the Predators with a career-best plus-20 rating. He also led Nashville with 35 assists. Suter led the Predators in average ice time during the playoffs at 28:51.


» Both Ryan Suter and Pekka Rinne will be unrestricted free agents next offseason. Weber will be a restricted free agent. » The Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League remain the primary minor league affiliate of the Predators. Many of the current Predators have played for the Admirals, who are now coached by Kirk Muller, including Shea Weber, Martin Erat, Pekka Rinne, Jordin Tootoo and Cal O'Reilly. » Suter’s father, Bob Suter, was a member of the 1980 United States Olympic hockey team that defeated the Soviet Union in the game known as the “Miracle on Ice” to win the gold medal.


The Predators will have 65 regular-season games broadcast on Fox Sports Tennessee and SportSouth. The flagship radio station is 102.5-FM. For tickets, go to or call 615-770-7825.

Nashville Sounds

Second baseman Edwin Maysonet watches his swing at Greer Stadium. In seven years as the Triple-A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers, the Nashville Sounds have won three Pacific Coast League divisional titles and their first PCL championship (2005) since joining the 16-team league in 1998. The Sounds have helped develop a number of players who went on to impact the Brewers, including All-Star sluggers Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks and pitchers Yovani Gallardo and Manny Parra. Established in 1978, the Sounds also played in the Double-A Southern League (1978-84) and the defunct American Association ('85-'97). They have been affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds ('78-'79, '87-'92), the New York Yankees ('80-'84), the Detroit Tigers ('85-'86), the Chicago White Sox ('93-'97) and the Pittsburgh Pirates ('98-'04), winning league crowns in 1979, '82 and '05. The team has played in Greer Stadium for the length of its existence.


Âť The Sounds have plenty of promotions all season long, including $1 hot dog nights and $1 ice cream sundae Sundays; 116

giveaways; fireworks; and Faith Nights, with music by Christian recording artists. Beer sales conclude at the end of the seventh inning, while Slugger's Sports Bar will sell until the end of the game. Âť Team mascot Ozzie has been entertaining the fans since 2000.


Reserved seats are $14 on game day, $12 in advance. General admission seats are $10 on game day, $8 in advance. For more information, go to, visit the Greer Stadium box office at 534 Chestnut St., or call 615690-4487.


The 33-year-old facility underwent about $2.5 million worth of improvements within the past few years, including installation of 2,000 seats that had previously been used at Comiskey Park, home of the Chicago White Sox, revamped restrooms and wheelchair access, and an overhaul of the concessions area. The guitar-shaped scoreboard is a fan favorite.

Vanderbilt has played home games in Memorial Gym since 1952, and it’s one of the most unusual facilities in the country. The floor is raised and the benches are at the end of the court instead of along the side like most arenas. Capacity is 14,316. Men’s outlook: Coming off a 23-11 season that included a fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in five years, Vandy welcomes back all five starters and three top reserves while adding three freshmen who could factor into the mix. The talent-laden lineup, led by projected 2012 NBA draft picks Festus Ezeli, John Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor, has earned top 10 recognition in preseason polls and will be among the favorites to win the Southeastern Conference. Coach Kevin Stallings is in his 13th season. Women’s outlook: A 20-12 campaign ended with the Commodores reaching their 12th consecutive NCAA Tournament last season. Sophomores Christina Foggie, Stephanie Holzer and Jasmine Lister are the top returners. Coach Melanie Balcomb in entering her ninth season.


Vanderbilt Stadium, a natural-grass facility, has a capacity of 39,773. Vanderbilt has renovated several areas of the stadium and added a new sound system this year. Outlook: James Franklin steps in as Vanderbilt’s third coach in as many years, replacing Robbie Caldwell and bringing a new staff with him. The ex-Maryland offensive coordinator has work to do with the ‘Dores coming off two 2-10 seasons. Linebacker Chris Marve and cornerback Casey Hayward headline a defense that aims to avoid finishing last again in the SEC in yards allowed. All 11 starters return to an offense that was last in the league in scoring and will abandon the hurry-up spread attack in favor of Franklin’s "multiple" scheme.

Tickets may be purchased at the ticket office at Floyd Stadium (Gate 1-A) off Faulkinberry Drive on campus in Murfreesboro, by calling 1-800-YESMTSU or at



Thompson-Boling Arena opened in 1987 as one of the nation’s largest basketball facilities. Capacity was later scaled back to 21,678. Men’s outlook: Tennessee had a tumultuous offseason. Former Coach Bruce Pearl and his staff were investigated by the NCAA, a probe that led to the entire staff being dismissed by then-Athletics Director Mike Hamilton. The school went before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions about a week after Hamilton resigned. The 2010-11 Vols finished 19-15 (88) in the SEC and were eliminated in with a 75-45 loss to Michigan in their first game in the NCAA Tournament. UT picked Missouri State’s Cuonzo Martin, 40, to replace Pearl. He’ll have a young and inexperienced squad with guard Cameron Tatum (8.8 ppg) the only full-time starter returning. Women’s outlook: Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history, is set to begin her 37th season as coach. After going 34-3 and just one win shy of a Final Four appearance in 2010-11, the Lady Vols return the top three scorers, Meighan Simmons (13.5 ppg), Shekinna Stricklen (12.8 ppg) and Glory Johnson (12.0 ppg), while also boasting one of the nation’s top freshman classes.


Neyland Stadium’s capacity is 102,459, which has enabled UT to lead the SEC in attendance for almost four consecutive decades. Outlook: Coach Derek Dooley went 6-7, with a loss to North Carolina in the Music City Bowl, in his debut last season. Sophomore Tyler Bray is entrenched at quarterback after starting the final five games last season. Senior tailback Tauren Poole is coming off a 1,034-yard season and sophomore wide receivers Justin Hunter and Da’Rick Rogers could emerge as stars. Defensively, the Vols lack depth up front and must break in a new linebacking corps.



Murphy Athletic Center’s capacity is 11,500. Men’s outlook: The Blue Raiders are coming off a 16-16 record (10-6 in Sun Belt Conference) last season. Coach Kermit Davis enters this season 11 victories shy of becoming the program’s all-time winningest coach. MTSU has had only one losing season in nine years, but the Blue Raiders have not played in the NCAA tournament or NIT since 1989. MTSU returns the bulk of its lineup, led by junior forwards Jason Jones and J.T. Sulton, and Iowa State transfer LaRon Dendy. Women’s outlook: The Lady Raiders have made the postseason eight straight years, including seven NCAA tournaments and one WNIT berth. They have won at least 20 games in eight straight seasons, including six under Coach Rick Insell. MTSU won a share of the SBC regularseason title and gained an at-large NCAA tournament berth last season. They return a talented trio in guard Kortni Jones, Icelyn Elie and Sun Belt freshman of the year Ebony Rowe.


Middle Tennessee State University plays its home games at Floyd Stadium. Capacity is 31,000. Outlook: The Blue Raiders went 6-7 last season with a loss to Miami (Ohio) in the Bowl. It was the third bowl bid in Coach Rick Stockstill’s five seasons. Stockstill is the highest paid coach in the conference, but he returns a mostly inexperienced squad. Nevertheless, a veteran offensive line and talented quarterback Logan Kilgore should keep the Blue Raiders in the Sun Belt’s upper echelon. The schedule is arguably the most attractive in program history, with Georgia Tech and Memphis coming to Murfreesboro, and the Blue Raiders traveling to Knoxville. 119

Lipscomb plays at Allen Arena, 3901 Granny White Pike. Capacity is 5,000. To order tickets, call 615-966-5899 or 1-800-333-4358, ext. 5899, or go to

Belmont plays at Curb Event Center, 2002 Belmont Blvd. Capacity is 5,900. Buy tickets by calling 615-460-8500, or sending an email to tickets@



Men’s outlook: The Bisons will have to rebuild after losing Adnan Hodzic and Josh Slater, who were two of the best players in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Lipscomb has won at least 17 games in the past six seasons, but that could be a challenge after losing four of its top scorers. The highlight of the 2010-11 season was a 73-64 win against Belmont at home. That came just 12 days after Belmont beat the Bisons 88-52 at Curb Event Center. Women’s outlook: Lipscomb's struggles continued in 2010-11 when the Lady Bisons finished in ninth place in the Atlantic Sun. It marked the fourth consecutive season Lipscomb finished ninth or lower. Three of the best players return, including leading scorer Anna Bowers (13.2 ppg). The Lady Bisons have put together another challenging schedule that includes marquee games against North Carolina and Vanderbilt.

Men’s outlook: Belmont became the first NCAA Division I team in the 2010-11 season to reach 30 wins and in the process claimed the Atlantic Sun Conference tourney championship. That sent the Bruins to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time since 2006. Belmont, which was riding the nation's second-longest win streak at 12-games, received a No. 13 seed and lost to Wisconsin 72-58 in the second round. Sophomore Ian Clark made the All-Atlantic Sun first team. J.J. Mann made the All-Freshman Team, and Rick Byrd was the Coach of the Year. Women’s outlook: Under first-year coach Brittney Ezell, Belmont struggled during the midseason losing 10 of 11 games in one stretch. The Lady Bruins finished on an uptick winning their first game in the conference tournament before falling to Stetson in the semifinals on a 55-foot shot at the buzzer.


The ticket office, open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, is inside Gentry Center on the first floor at 3500 John A. Merritt Blvd. Call 615-963-7627 or visit or Ticketmaster.


Tennessee State University plays its home games at Gentry Center. Capacity is 10,000. Men's outlook: John Cooper has gotten the Tigers into the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in his first two seasons as coach. Last year the Tigers played their best at midseason and were tied for first in the OVC on Jan. 24 with a 7-1 league record. Because of injuries the roster dwindled to seven players for some games. This year there are 11 players available, including newcomers 6-foot-11 Muniru Bawa, a transfer from Indiana; 6-7 Kellen Thornton, a transfer from Illinois State; 6-4 Jordan Cyphers, a transfer from Utah; and 6-7 Kenny Moore, a transfer from Midland (Texas) Community College. Women's outlook: The Lady Tigers struggled in terms of consistency last season and posted their worst record (9-21) in three years. The good news is that four of the team's top scorers return, including sophomore forward Taylor Foster, the leading scorer who averaged 11.6 points while also grabbing 4.4 rebounds.

TSU plays home games at LP Field. Capacity is 68,798. Outlook: TSU struggled in its first season under Coach Rod Reed, who previously served as the team's defensive coordinator. The Tigers were winless in the OVC and finished in last place with a 3-8 overall record. Injuries took a toll and the offense was never able to overcome the loss of running back Preston Brown, who was one of the nation's top rushers before tearing his ACL at midseason. Replacing Brown this year won't be easy but the staff is high on sophomore Trabis Ward, who redshirted last season. Ward started one game as a freshman in 2009.
