NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

There's no denying that Nashville is a boom town, but the growth means Music City is soon getting another area code.

The current 615 area code is quickly running out of numbers, so the Tennessee Regulatory Authority announced Thursday the new digits will be 629.

The TRA had been gauging public opinion on how best to handle the area code conundrum, and it decided to go with the overlay option by popular demand.

That means the new 629 area code will cover the same region as 615, and everyone will have to dial all 10 digits no matter your area code.

The good news is people who currently have 615 phone numbers will get to keep them, and calls that are local now will still be local when the new rules go into effect.

That is expected to happen in the spring of 2015.
