Nashville, Tennessee — just the name draws images of cowboy boots, rhinestone belts, and twangy banter flashing against the neon lights of Honky Tonk Highway. But while Nashville is deeply rooted in the genre, country music is only a fraction of what makes the place known around the world as Music City. Here, music grows organically with an energy pumping creativity, ambition, and a sense of community into the air. Here, artists want others to succeed, even if they want to succeed more. Here, there’s Dylan, there’s Cash, there’s The Black Keys, there’s Ke$ha.
Here, there’s no genre, there’s just music — and a whole lot of it.
