NASHVILLE (August 27, 2015) — Nashville lives up to its state's motto — America at its best. As one of the Hardest Working Cities, Nashville ranked among the highest in total hours worked.

We quickly realized this when we kicked off our Nashville celebration by making three surprise jobsite visits with more than 150 workers — just some of this city's hardest workers.

Our visits included:

  • I-60/I-40 bridge replacement, part of the renowned Fast Fix 8 project
  • I-65/Peystonsville Road bridge construction project
  • Nashville Electric Service, one of the 10 largest public electric utilities in the nation

After our jobsite visits, we headed to Neely Coble Company, where we hosted the Hardest Working Cities award presentation featuring special guest speakers Matt Wiltshire, director of economic development for Mayor Karl Dean's office, and Congressman Jim Cooper.

The event hosted more than 100 guests and helped express that this award is more than just a title, it's a way of life. We were honored to celebrate Nashville and, more importantly, honor the men and women who do the jobs that help make cities like Nashville thrive.

Congratulations Nashville. Take a bow, then get back to work.
