Nebraska is what country singers and people on cross country road trips are talking about when they rave about the Mid West and it’s wide open spaces.

Nebraska has more thousand acre farms than imposing skylines, almost 90% of the cities have fewer than 3,000 residents. Omaha, the largest city, has always had a strong musical heritage, including today’s powerful indie music scene.

Matador has covered the storms and wildlife of Nebraska in articles about bird migrations, tornado watching, and the sandhill cranes of Rowe Sanctuary.
