We may have to wait until Sunday, March 20, to officially welcome the new season, but if Nashville events are any indication, Music City isn’t waiting around to celebrate. The month ahead promises all the things we love most about this time of year — the (hopeful) departure of winter temperatures, St. Patrick’s Day, and time spent outdoors enjoying the budding greenery.
