When we were preparing to move to middle Tennessee, we heard all about how Nashville was one of the it cities.
Part of the growing, urban South, the city was bringing in new business and attractions, while still retaining its country music roots. (That last part was a downside for me, but a plus for my wife.)
In all of our conversations about the area, no one every thought about bringing up that it was the black realm of Middle Earth. Nashville is Mordor!
The only good news in all of this? Apparently, Frodo destroyed the ring the other day by looks of this picture a friend posted on Instagram. Look at Mount Doom erupting.
I’m just hoping we can find the Shire soon. I just want to visit, I couldn’t live there. Hobbit holes are too small.
