Nashville is not just Country Music

Yet here I am writing this while watching the CMA awards (TiVo’d of course). Would I be watching this if I was still in the Bay Area? No.

But yes, Nashville is more than about music and talent than just the genre of Country Music. In this day and age of genre busting bands and music, you could also argue that country music doesn’t really exist any more.

ABC recently aired a documentary on Nashville music. The “true” music, not the hype. Of course, it was produced by the Nashville Convention Bureau, so it is a bit of a biased perspective. You can watch it here: http://watchabc.go.com/for-the-love-of-music-the-story-of-nashville/SH55376077

Enjoy some cameos from folks like Peter Frampton and the Black Keys as they talk about why they’ll never leave Nashville. I also hope I never will.
