Sometimes the most amazing feats are the simplest, and the ones pulled off in plain sight. In our 24th annual Best of Nashville issue, the Scene salutes the people who produce wonders around us every day, without the aid of smoke or mirrors. Over the past year, we’ve seen the city rise to remarkable prominence on the national stage — our chefs, our musicians, our filmmakers, our fashions. No less important, though, are those whose wizardly deeds, goods and efforts are known mostly to locals and neighbors, and deserve to be known to more.
So pick a page. Any page. And take a closer look at the riches our city has to offer. You won’t believe your eyes.
