It’s the epicenter of the country music industry, where all
the musicians either have a deal or are trying to get one. Walk downtown’s
Lower Broadway, into the songwriter’s heaven Bluebird Café, or even into a
no-name pizza joint, and you’ll hear someone playing or singing—and usually
pretty darn well. And maybe because those upstarts are always looking to make
nice with a record-label rep who’s out and about, the locals rank No. 1 for
being friendly too.
