The NFL draft is heading to the Music City.
The Tennessee Titans will play host to the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. Nashville’s selection was ratified by NFL team owners Wednesday at the Spring League Meeting in Atlanta.

“I’m so excited for the city of Nashville and so proud that we’ve been selected as the host city for the 2019 NFL Draft,” Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk said. “As we all know, Nashville has a well-deserved reputation as a city that loves the big stage and loves a big party … we’re looking forward to April of next year.”
The NFL has made the draft a road show the past four years, holding it in Dallas last month, Philadelphia in 2017 and Chicago in 2015 and 2016. Several other cities were under consideration for hosting the 2019 draft, including Las Vegas and Denver.
If the Titans‘ new uniform unveiling earlier this year can be used as a barometer of Nashville’s football fanaticism, next year’s draft should draw plenty of fan interest from the Tennessee faithful and other NFL fans.
