Nashville wasn’t always a key NFL market. Hear the story on how the city went from an afterthought to the 2019 draft.
Autumn Allison, Nashville Tennessean
In the summer of 1995, a small group of Nashville leaders quietly set out to accomplish a feat that seemed beyond improbable at the time: bringing an NFL team to town.
The events that followed — a secret meeting, an unlikely alliance and a political battle that divided Nashville — paved the way for today’s Tennessee Titans. Over the next quarter century, the team saw triumph and endured tragedy.
The Tennessean’s podcast series Picking Nashville chronicles the history of pro football in Music City.
Ex-Titan players, current and former team executives, beat writers and Nashville leaders of the present and past sat down with Tennessean journalists Ben Goad, Mike Organ, Nate Rau and Ayrika Whitney to give an oral history of the franchise in the Volunteer State.
Picking Nashville, a five part series, is live now. Listen below.
