One of the more interesting facts about Tennessee is that the state has ten official state songs. This is because Tennessee has contributed a lot to music especially country music. The capital city which is also the largest city, Nashville is affectionately called "Music City USA." Nashville is called this because it houses the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Opryland amusement park and the Music City Center. If you look at the numbers, Tennessee houses more than 180 recording studios, 130 music publishers, 100 live music clubs and so much more.
Tennessee is a pillar of strength for conservative Christians. Many Protestant denominations such as the United Methodist Church, Southern Baptist Convention and many more call Tennessee home. Nashville is sometimes referred to by its nickname "Buckle of the Bible Belt." If you go south from Nashville, you will arrive at Dayton. Dayton is famous for the "Scopes Monkey Trial" which happened in 1925. At the time, there was a statewide ban on teaching evolution. A local school teacher was prosecuted for violating this law. This anti-evolution law known as the Butler Act wasn't changed until the 60s.
The Great Depression was a terrible time for America. An agency named Tennessee Valley Authority constructed several hydroelectrical dams on the Tennessee River.
