Nashville is now firmly entrenched as one of the nation’s Top 25 largest cities, according to The Tennessean newspaper.
The city of Nashville increased 5% since 2010 to 634,464 in July 1, 2013, according to U.S. Census population estimates.
The Nashville/Davidson County Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) ranks 36th overall in population compared to other MSAs. Cheatham County is a part of the multi-county Nashville MSA. Cheatham County, located on Nashville’s western border, naturally grows its population a little slower and sustains abundant green space and natural areas.
