We lived in Nashville for 5 years... It is the BIGGEST LITTLE city you will ever see. Look in the lobby of any motel or the foyer of any restaurant for the little tabloid type paper which will have events and perhaps coupons.
What is your area of interest? ...Lot's of choices for music venues which showcase hopeful artists. Go the the Blue Bird Cafe... NOTE: You must remain perfectly quiet so as not to detract from the ability of talent scouts to hear the performers who are lucky enough to do a set. You WILL be asked to leave if you carry on even the most discreet quiet conversation at your table... it is just that way.
