14. We aren’t impressed with The Hermitage
Nashville seems proud that it has Andrew Jackson’s house, The Hermitage. We just can’t get that excited about you having a president’s house. We have a king’s house. And even though The Hermitage has a guitar-shaped driveway, Graceland housed a guy who actually knew how to play one.
15. You don’t get to claim Elvis
Just for the record, Nashville doesn’t get to claim him. That’s our deal. Yes, we know that Elvis recorded some stuff in Nashville, but he lived in Memphis, and the stuff that rocked the world on its heels came from Sun Studio in Memphis. So just leave the king to his throne.
