Capital Cities

I live in the capital city of Tennessee which is Nashville.
My tag celebrates Nashville in several ways. It sits a background of the American flag because Tennessee was the 16th state to join the union that is the United States. It did leave the Union to join the Confederacy in what Tennesseans and Southerners call "The War of Northern Agression" (the US Civil War).
The background of the tag is a picture of the Nashville skylinein front of the Cumberland River. On that I superimposed the slogan Country Music USA because Nashville is known all over the world as the center of country music, both traditional and crossover like Taylor Swift. I also added cowboy boots, which are the footwear of choice in these parts, a guitar, and finally, I sewed on 3 stars.
Come visit us in Nashville: the climate is great, the food is excellent, the music is fantastic, the history is
compelling and the people are charming and welcoming.

    I love how you've used the US flag as the base and then added all those wonderful Nashville images!
