With all respect to you Joe - a discussion of the nuances of what is and isn't good "Country" music would be lost on most people here. Nashville is also the home of some very good bluegrass music and there are quite a few local "fest" that go on around here. Also home to gospel music - and there is a lot of that here. Plus home to quite a bit of "Christan" music with several artist home based here. There is some rock being recorded around town now and "Kid" Rock is not a rare site downtown - especially during CMA time. All in all it's pretty hard to beat as far as being around the music business. I lived in Cali for many years and there is a lot of great music to be had around the Bay Area. But watch out for the L.A. music scene - those sharks will eat your lunch.......

My preference is what would be called "Texas" music with Asleep at the Wheel and Commander Cody "high" on the list.

Hey Sofaspud - you should at least have some pretty good Western Music down there in San An-tone.
Maybe not as much as you'd think. SA has an earned reputation as a hard rock town (Google something that includes "the godfather Joe Anthony"). When Doug Sahm passed away I grieved alone. But I like hard rock, too, so I manage.
And I was in the 3rd grade in Lubbock!
@JoeDJ
Yep, I agree with you. I'm not into Kenny Rogers or Taylor Swift or Alabama or anything like that. But something like the first 4 Amazing Rhythm Aces albums... IMO it doesn't get any better in any genre.

Ray Benson is a local fixture. And Toby Keith's "Won't Smoke Weed with Willie Again" has much truth to it.

Yeah, same experience as you- some wonderful music during my 30 years or so in California, but not like here.

Love Willie. Love him. Great quote from someone else who played with him: "Willie once admitted to me that he'd outlived his dick."

BTW, I lived in nashville for a short while back in the late '60s. so, I'm fairly aware of the various types of music there.. at least at the time.
I went down there with a rock band I was in (long story) and mostly all poeple wanted to hear in many of the "clubs" was James Brown and other soul music. It was rather strange to say the least given the time.

I remember seeing Commander Cody live back in the '70s and he was a bit of a mad man on stage..... he was great!

Anyway, I was just refering to what Nashville is nationally and world famous for, a particular genere of music they call country.

During the Country Music Awards (CMA's) we get people from all over the world visiting Nashville and Oz is represented very, very well!!!!

The funnest tourist tend to be those from Asian countries - they love to put on Cowboy clothing - including 10 gallon hats and big boots and then take western line dance lessons while they are falling down drunk!!! They have a BALL and are laughing a mile a minute..... It's great to watch folks having that much fun!!!
