Nashville is like the 28th largest TV market. DC and Tampa are both Top 12.
St. Louis is 23rd and they supported the Rams so well they went back to Los Angeles, and the XFL was considering San Antonio which is 31st.

I don't expect Nashville to get one, mostly because they'll still shoot for higher markets and I doubt they are expanding any time soon if they actually do come back.

I must have missed something, is the XFL for sure going to have a second season?

They were bought by The Rock, his ex-wife business partner and another company back in August and they are currently planning on having a 2021 spring season in a bubble environment like the NBA and NHL are currently doing. Whether that happens remains to be seen but it's definitely not dead.

There is just something about the XFL that makes it more enjoyable for me to watch over the NFL. Maybe it’s not really being tied to a team or some of the differences between the two leagues like the rules or the production That networks put on.. I guess it was fun watching it from day one and also it was a lot easier to learn and identify with each team when there are only eight versus 32.

I don't like it more than the NFL but I definitely liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It was a pro league but felt like between pro and college, and the TV presentation was top notch. It really was obvious how much more serious the XFL presented itself and was taken by the sports world this time. And I think it really proved there is a place for a tweener league like this.

Plus since I like the CFL it was set up that I almost would have football year round. College/NFL goes into the XFL and the XFL would end in the end of April, and then it would just be about 2 months before the CFL started, which leads right back into the NFL/College.

Kind of bummed that we should be getting the second season (third technically I guess) in about a month but instead we have to wait another year; and even then we don't know exactly what is coming back. I'm hoping they get the same type TV deal but without McMahon I'm wondering if they will.
