i agree with most of the list, but i think nashville should be on it, because of country music.

Nashville is nice but it still has a low profile globally .... I was thinking in other big / famous cities as Istanbul, Rio, St Petersburg, Marrakech.....

i would probably put three of your four cities on my list, i dont know too much about marrakech, but it seems popular also

i too was expecting too see more familiar names. I wonder what a more realistic list would look like? Surely Paris and New York should still be on it.

On the loved or hated list? Besides, most countries have their own folk/country music so only view Nashville as the US version of that genre.

CNN rankings lead the ranking of the world's most stupid rankings.

I think we're getting a bandwagon rolling for Nashville....

btw, Sydney and Melbourne are 2 cities; not even close to each other. Like LA/SF or NY/Boston.

As for LA, that's how I think of it: sort of mixing the cultural isolation of Timbuktu with the ethnicity of Peru (OK, Mexico, but close enough).

If Petra is in, then maybe Disneyland qualifies. Oh, wait, that's a Kingdom.

In some of the central US country music is popular, but this is a world discussion. Nashville doesn't have much of a profile even on the US coasts.

That's not really true...Kenny Chesney played in front of 55,000 at the Meadowlands recently. Keith Urban and Taylor Swift are playing to a sold-out crowd at TD Garden in a couple of weeks. The list could go on and on, but you get the idea. Country music is very popular in all parts of the U.S. and Canada, whether you and I listen to it or not.

I do agree that Nashville wouldn't come close to being on a "World's Top 10 List". Maybe an American Top 25.

It is, but we have a domestic country music industry that runs parallel to the US one. Historically, Canadian country came from the Maritimes and later Ontario/Alberta.

I don't think the person that mentioned Nashville was serious...I think he was just being funny.

It's well-known to people outside the US I think as the home of country music over there, even to people who don't listen to US country music like myself.

But as for the city itself I don't think many people could name any streets, landmarks, etc or anything other than country music that goes on there....

They probably make whiskey around there I guess!

Vanderbilt University is fairly well-known, but I can't imagine Nashville being known to the average person outside of North America.

I agree and I don't listen to country music either. Perhaps it is well-known in English speaking countries?

I would guess the truth is in between. For sure Nashville is known in Europe among the reasonably well educated or musically literate; I've seen country music fests in Germany.

But it's certainly not like NY or Hollywood, etc., among the general population.

Shame on you CNN. Póvoa de Varzim should be at the top spot of the list.
