Nashville singer-songwriter Jeff Hightower’s new album , The Keepers, is, in fact, a keeper. That’s right. Whether he is writing about his inability to drink a woman away from his mind, or reflecting on the fact there ‘just ain’t enough sad songs to go around’, his heart is all there. He rocks the blues out.
Check out this awesome new music by Imagine Dragons from Las Vegas. This video showcases the raw talent of this band. I caught an awesome performance by them last week in Nashville on their way to their sold out showcase at SXSW. I cannot wait to see these guys again. Fresh and free, just like […]
Handmade reconstructed jeans from Nashville. The Imogene and Willie shop is an old service station with no signage. They have great reconditioned leather cafe jackets, as well.
Of all the Nashville bands that are ‘bursting onto the National scene’ right now, PUJOL is probably one of the only ones I would still care about were he not from my town. With catchy as hell choruses, a gritty sonic aesthetic, and the lyrics to support it all, my only complaint is that he […]
Nashville artist Tim Hooper, aka Mr. Hooper, loves pipe smoking robots, black bears that look a little tweaky blowing bubbles, and brooding solitary rabbits. Many of his pieces are done on vintage postcards and wood. Gene Autry and Elvis lurk on his psyche, too.
In case you didn’t know, artisanal ice cream is so last year; gourmet popsicles are the new epicurean treat for summer. But Las Paletas in Nashville, Tennessee has been wise to this trend all along.
Despite their many layers and instruments — three guitars, bass, violin, viola, cello, piano, percussion, and multiple vocals — Nashville’s The Ascent of Everest never get weighed down by over-wrought compositions. Rather, they make sparse, evocative, and sweeping songs that stretch out like horizons, every element simple and elegant enough to interweave with another without […]
Magic Wands are a burgeoning young duo playing some really fun music these days, and the most recent remix of Warrior sounds especially sweet to my ears this week. Uh, maybe because I just saw them live the other night, and they exceeded the expectations of an opening act. We love it when that happens. Don’t we?
Draped in a charming rustic veneer, the Meow Cottage at the Old Marshall House in Franklin, Tennessee, is a self-contained cottage situated on the grounds of a sprawling — and quite beautiful — B&B.
I spent time recently in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, enjoying fine Southern cuisine, gracious hospitality [’y’all come back now!’] and the warmth of a sun beating down like a semi-gnarled blanket. It was interesting to see the cultural values of the city; the social graces of its people which permeate every conversation.
Late on a Tuesday night, it’s hard to know what to expect arriving at a new destination. While other cities were sleepily shutting the doors and awaiting the new day, Nashville, Tennessee was just coming into full swing. Stages in bars along Broadway were being rocked by blues, rockabilly, country and rock ‘n’ roll bands, and the standard of live music was true to its pedigree.
