2 years, 4 months, and 5 days.
That's how long I've called Nashville home. I'm a Yankee transplant, as are many of the people who live here, who has slowly fallen for this town. I am no fan of country music and the fact that I don't hide my dislike was amusing to my friends and family when I announced I would be moving to Nashville Tennessee. After all, Nashville is all about the country music, right? I certainly thought so.
I was wrong. Nashville is much more musically diverse than most people realize and those of us who come to Nashville with pre-conceived notions of rhinestones, red necks and record labels are pleasantly surprised to find the depth and breadth of talent teeming throughout the city.
So, I wanted to pass along the link to THIS ARTICLE written 9 months ago by Ann Patchett for the New York Times. She presents an accurate picture of what the Nashville music scene is really like...and it is good.
