This year began with a bang for Nashville with events that set the tone for many months to follow. Almost literally kicking off a whirlwind year, a deadly and costly tornado outbreak swept through Tennessee in early March, covering several counties and residential neighborhoods and ripping through whole sections of Music City, leaving historic music venues in ruins and more than $1.6 billion in damages. With a rocky start to what would prove a challenging year for Nashville, the city began pulling itself upright by its backbone — the locals. Immediately following the natural disaster, a website dedicated to rebuilding the city crashed several times as thousands of residents flooded the page, signing up to support their city and rebuild after the tornado.
