Nashville Might Soon Be Home To Tennessee’s Only Whataburger


Nashville might soon be home to Tennessee’s only Whataburger fast food joint…that is, if the voices of the growing WWW (We Want Whataburger) campaign are heard. 

Music City hasn’t seen the glorious burger joint since the first Briley was our mayor. Now the former A-framed orange-and-white-striped-roofed building on Nolensville Road across from Danver’s is nothing more than a tire repair shop.

One brave soul is now hoping to change that and bring the glorious W back to town. 

According to Micah Johnson’s campaign

“I’m asking my fellow Nashville people to sign this petition to further expand Whataburger Awareness for Nashville. Nashville hot chicken is definitely a great thing. But there is plenty of room for Whataburger spicy ketchup.

This plea has been brought to you by Nashville Whataburger Awareness and the triple W “WWant Whataburger” campaign.”

The campaign currently 844 out of their 1,000 signature goal.

4.4 Magnitude Earthquake Rocked The Nashville Region Last Night

Last night a massive 4.4 magnitude earthquake rocked our region, knocking books off of shelves and waking deep sleepers from their beds. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake had an epicenter of 9 Km under Decatur, TN. Even though this is about 100 miles east of Nashville, it still shocked people all around the Nashville region; The earthquake was so strong that it was even felt as far away as Tampa, FL, Kansas City, and New York City. Here’s the USGA’s ‘did you feel it’ map from last night’s quake; It was the second strongest ever recorded in Eastern Tennessee; Earthquakes have been increasing in frequency around our region over the past few years, about a year ago, we saw a 2.9 magnitude quake hit Asheville and a 2.1 magnitude quake that struck Bryson City. The Nashville area has been known to experience the occasional damage-causing earthquakes. According to, “The largest earthquake in the area (magnitude 5.1) occurred in 1916. Moderately damaging earthquakes strike Tennesee every few decades, and smaller earthquakes are felt about once each year or two.”
