Nashville’s population grew more than any other city in Tennessee last year, according to new Census estimates. But in terms of percentages, the fastest growing areas in Tennessee lie outside of Nashville.
Murfreesboro added nearly 4,000 people. That’s a 3.4 percent uptick in one year. Clarksville popped up by 2.8 percent. Cal Wray of the local chamber of commerce says the population increase is evident now that traffic is becoming a problem.
