Nashville, writes author Adam Ross, is a "nexus of talent that's both Hollywood and rhinestone, urban and country, high lonesome and rock and roll... a storyteller's town." Get to know his city through the latest installment of P&W's City Guides.
Among Ross's favorite places are the Scarritt-Bennett Center for peace and inspiration, Margot Café & Bar for food and drink, and BookManBookWoman for a serendipitous used-book find.
