Open to All Attendees

Known as Music City thanks to its iconic and thriving entertainment industry and arts culture, Nashville is also renowned for healthcare, higher education, and technology and innovation. This diverse economic base provides the backdrop to create a vibrant and prosperous city.

Join us as former NFL running back, Heisman winner, and local entrepreneur Eddie George moderates a conversation with the heirs of Dollar General, HCA, and Ingram Industries, all of whom are making their own mark shaping the city.

These industry and philanthropic leaders play integral roles in the evolution of Nashville and its future success.  This success is reflected in the creation of a sustainable, 18-hour city, attracting major business relocations, national sports franchises, and creative class expansion, proving that Nashville is more than Music City.
