Nashville is known as the home of country music and is a major music production center for a wide variety of genres, including country music. The area is also home to the Gibson guitar company and is the second-largest producer of recorded music in the United States, after New York. But the music industry is not the largest contributor to the local economy; the health care industry takes top honors. The city's ten largest employers are Vanderbilt University and Medical Center, the local government and public school system, the State of Tennessee, the United States Government, Saint Thomas Health Services, carmaker Nissan North America, the Hospital Corporation of America, Walmart, Ryman Hospitality Properties, and the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store chain of restaurants. If you're a big fan of music, then moving to Nashville will bring you to the home of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry, as well as several other world-class performance venues that attract top talent from all around the globe. While the majority of Nashville's music scene is oriented around its status in the world of country, most of the other forms of cultural life in the city are oriented around its rather large community of university students. There is also a thriving theater scene in Nashville, as well as a wealth of art galleries and historical, cultural, and art museums, so if you're planning to buy a home in Nashville, you'll find plenty to do in the city.
