I am planning to go to Nashville later this year. Would 2 days be sufficient or would I need 3 days? Thanks

How much time you need depends on your interests and what you want to do. It would be a good idea to read up on the typical attractions/activities, then post here what you are interested in. Then people can give you a better idea of timing.
During my Nashville trip with my wife, we arrived on a Thursday night and left on Sunday morning. Our itinerary included the Country Music Hall of Fame, a concert and tour of the Ryman Auditorium, a tour of the Andrew Jackson Plantation, musical "bar hopping," and a night at the Grand Ole Opry. I think it depends on how many shows you want to attend and how much touring you want to do of the city.
In the 2 full days and 3 nights we were there, we didn't get to do a lot of sight seeing in the city, though we did do a lot of walking from place to place and were able to take in a little bit of the local culture. The Country Hall of Fame is the better part of a day, especially if you do the Studio B tour. The music scene is great for country, obviously, but also for blues and rock and roll. You need at least one night, if not two, to hit some different music venues. There are many centered on Broadway St, and some of the bigger establishments (BB King's House of Blues, Wild Horse Saloon, Hard Rock Cafe) are found along 1st and 2nd Avenue down by the river. BB King's takes the better part of an evening.
I strongly recommend one night at the Opry. If you have a choice, Saturday nights seem to draw the bigger acts (old and new). Just the history alone makes it worth the price of admission.
So, a short end to a long post: You can do a lot in 2 days, but if you have a 3rd, it will make the trip a little more relaxing and give you another night to check out the night life (aka, awesome music scene).
Look at the Things to Do area here on TripAdvisor and decide what you are most interested in doing/seeing. That will help you to determine your needed timeframe. If you let us know what you want to do, people here can help you to consider your needed amount of time.
I agree with the above posts. However, you could also spend 2 days just seeing historical homes/battlefields. In Nashville- the belle meade plantation, hermitage, fort nashboro. In Franklin- Carter house, carnton house, franklin battlefield. Rippavilla and battlefield in Spring Hill. James K. Polk home in Columbia. If history os of interest, then more days needed. If not, then the 2-3 days listed above would be pretty good start.
I would try to plan 4
