What Tennessee cities are located within a 60 mile radius of Nashville, TN?

I need a discreet list of cities within those parameters.  This is for
a "what to do in Nashville" type web site.  Thanks in advance!

Have a look here:,+TN&spn=1.274394,2.163071&hl=en

Does this 60-mile radius map help?

Excellent! That did it! How did you tell Google to only display cities
within 60 miles?

Google does whatever I tell them!

...Er...well...Google Maps does whatever I tell it!

...That is, as long as what I tell it is provided by the mapping controls.

First, head to the Google Maps main page:

and enter the name of a place in the search box [ e.g. Nashville, TN ]
to bring up a more local map:

You'll notice on the left hand side of the map page a sliding zoom bar
-- you can use this to adjust the scale of the map until you get a
60-mile radius.

It's a bit awkward to do, since you have to use the mile/km scale at
the bottom left of the map to estimate what 60 miles looks like.  It
will take a few wiggles of the zoom bar to get it right.

On the top right of the page is some hypertext: "Link to this page". 
Click on this bring you to an actual URL that can be used as a
permanent link to the map.

I trust this information fully answers your question.  However, please
don't rate this answer until you have everything you need.  If you
would like any additional information, just post a Request for
Clarification to let me know how I can assist you further, and I'm at
your service.

All the best,
