It could be fake. I posted the link around noon today on page 4 of this thread and I still haven't figured out who gave it to the youtuber I linked nor what camers this came from. But...
It wouldn't be unusual for an explosion to rapidly move the surrounding air and quickly dissipate smoke ahead of it.
It's very weird how it just kind of fades.
Maybe the heat of the blast caused it to fade like that?

No. It doesn't look like that at all. We have an RV, we have video of the warning to vacate the area before it exploded. It wasn't an air to ground missile what are you talking about?
And by the way, EVERY data center has an offsite backup in case of disaster, so blowing this place up would be pointless if it was for that reason. This is nonsense.
AT&T said the affected building is the central office of a telephone exchange, with network equipment in it. The blast interrupted service, but the company declined to say how widespread outages were.
The AT&T outages site showed service issues in middle Tennessee and Kentucky. Several police agencies reported that their 911 systems were down because of the outage, including Knox County, home to Knoxville about 180 miles (290 kilometers) east of Nashville.
AT&T said that it was bringing in portable cell sites and was working with law enforcement to get access to make repairs to its equipment. The company noted that “power is essential to restoring” service.
6 a.m.: Nashville police respond to reports of shots fired near Second Avenue and Commerce Street in the downtown area. Police said they saw a suspicious vehicle outside a nearby AT&T transmission building.
6:32 a.m.: An explosion occurred along Second Avenue North, The Tennessean reported. Police said it was linked to a recreational vehicle and appeared to be an “intentional act.”
Betsy Williams, who owns the Melting Pot building on Second Avenue, lives in a third-floor loft apartment near the center of the blast, The Tennessean reported. Williams said she left the area after she heard the recording play a countdown to the explosion.
“Evacuate now. There is a bomb. A bomb is in this vehicle and will explode,” Williams told the newspaper she heard from the recording.
At 6:32 Christmas morning, @MNPDNashville and @NashvilleFD responded to the scene of an explosion on 2nd Ave, approximately one block north of Broadway. Metro Police confirm the source of the explosion came from a vehicle.

6:45 a.m.: Emergency crews shut down streets in the downtown area and federal agents were called to the scene. Emergency crews closed off a 10-block radius around the site of the explosion, WSMV reported. Three people are hospitalized for unspecified injuries, according to the Nashville Fire Department. One officer suffered hearing loss as a result of the explosion, WZTV reported.

This does not look good. Maybe not related.
There was an ad taken out in the newspaper saying there would be an attack.
A major Tennessee newspaper said Sunday it is investigating what its editor called a "horrific" full-page advertisement from a religious group that predicts a terrorist attack in Nashville next month. The paid advertisement that appeared in Sunday's editions of The Tennessean addresses the "citizens of Nashville" and warns that the attack would happen on July 18, 2020.
The ad from the group Future For America claims Donald Trump "is the final president of the USA" and features a photo of Trump and Pope Francis. It begins by claiming that a nuclear device would be detonated in Nashville and that the attack would be carried out by unspecific interests of "Islam."

Save those. With how quickly the FBI responded this has all the hallmarks of a distraction or false flag. That story could be scrubbed pretty quickly. It's circulating on chans of some sites going down already.
