The Nashville metropolitan area is a metropolitan area centered on Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States. It includes 13 counties in Middle Tennessee.

The Office of Management and Budget defines the metro area as the Nashville-Davidson–Murfreesboro–Franklin, TN, Metropolitan Statistical Area, a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) designated for statistical use by the United States Census Bureau and other agencies. The area is the 38th largest MSA in the United States[2] and is the largest metropolitan area in the state of Tennessee, although Nashville is the second largest city of Tennessee.

The metropolitan statistical area was first designated in 1950 and initially included only Davidson County. As surrounding counties increased in population and population densities and in the number of the number of their residents employed in Davidson County, the OMB added new counties to the MSA. Today, the metro area includes Davidson and 12 other counties.
