About Us

From investigative cultural and political reporting to looks inside the city's massive arts and entertainment industry, the Scene has developed into a must-read for Nashvillians of all stripes over the past three decades. The newsweekly's provocative lifestyle coverage and criticism of emerging local musical talent have cemented its relationship with readers. 

The Scene is the only place for special issues like "You Are So Nashville If," "Boner Awards" and of course each year's massive "Best of Nashville" which covers everything from the best bars and bands to politics, shops, parks, activists and more. The Scene is a medium-circulation print publication release throughout Nashville and surrounding counties every Thursday - our website also features online-only daily coverage of state and local politics, the arts, music, film, and food. 

The Nashville Scene reserves the right to remove any comments from our site or various social media platforms at any time. Comments featuring hate speech or otherwise threatening or violent content will be deleted. To report a comment you think violates our terms, email editor[at]nashvillescene[dot]com.
