Asbestos Exposure in Nashville, TN

Situated along the Cumberland River in north-central Tennessee, Nashville was founded in 1779 as Fort Nashborough. Due to its strategic location--accessibility as a river port and its status as a major railroad center--Nashville grew rapidly. In 1806, Nashville was incorporated as a city and became the seat of Davidson County. In 1843, the city was officially named the capital of Tennessee. With an approximate population of 1,589,000, the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area, comprised of 12 counties, is the largest metropolitan area in the state. Nashville, known as the “Music City”, is perhaps most well-known as a center of the music industry. It is also referred to as the “Athens of the South” because of the plethora of colleges and universities in Nashville and the metropolitan area. Some of the colleges and universities in Nashville include Fisk University, Meharry Medical College, Tennessee State University, and Vanderbilt University.

As the "home of country music", Nashville has developed into a major music recording and production center. All of the Big Four record labels, as well as numerous independent labels, have offices in Nashville, primarily in the Music Row area. As of 2006, Nashville's music industry is estimated to contribute 19,000 jobs to the Nashville area. Though Nashville is renowned as a music recording center and tourist destination, its largest industry is actually health care. Nashville is home to more than 250 health care companies, including Hospital Corporation of America, the largest private operator of hospitals in the world. As of 2006, it is estimated that the health care industry contributes 94,000 jobs to the Nashville-area economy. Other important industries include tourism, automotive, insurance, finance, and publishing.
