Left Gibson’s and headed over to meet the folks at Grimey’s – a happenin’ indie record store. Mike Grimey and Doyle Davis are clear music fanatics. They had a downstairs club to boot.
Was really heartened to hear that their sales are growing rapidly. My new theory about music retail is that it’s the real music-centric indie stores that are going to start thriving in the new digital age. As digital tech skims off more and more of the mass audience that are the primary buyers of music in big box stores, success in retail is going to come more and more to those who really emphasize service and value for shoppers, to draw music fans that still long for that experience. People who like walking through narrow aisles stuff with music.. surrounded by music obsessed shop clerks eager to help out…

Had a nice lunch and chat, scooped up a bunch of CDs and headed out to the evening meetup at Cabanas.
Great dinner meetup. lively conversation and great food with great group of local music lovers.

You definitely get the sense in Nashville that the love of music runs deep. At the meetup I met a number of folks who had moved to Nashville because they were music fans, not because they had a particular job in mind.
First stop for the evening, the aforementioend Bluebird Cafe where they don’t even let people walk in during a song. Love it!

Watched a nice long set from a three piece acoustic group then club hopped the evening; the Basement, the End, and more…

    I recently heard about this site and I have fallen in love. I have told everyone I know. It is such a teasure! Now on to the topic at hand. Nashville is busting with talent and local artist. If you love music then head this way. We will welcome you with open arms. I suggest that you try looking into Movement Nashville they can be found on myspace. It is a great link for local artist and venues. Thanks again for sharing your love of music with the rest of us!

    Hi i'm new here at this radio site. It is very good from what i've seen so far. This is my first day so there is still much for me to look at and listen to. There is one thing though that I would like to bring to your attention. I was searching for a band called Stick Figure. I first found him on myspace music. I noticed that you do not have in the memory I guess you could say. I would very much appreciate it if you were to look and listen to his music and see if you would like to add him into your large library of music. I very much like this style of music so please if you don't mind it would be obliged. Thank you and keep up the good work. P.S. When will you be coming back around Memphis? love & respect, Katlin L.

    Sorry I missed you in Nashville. The RIAA needs to figure out that every one of the CD's I've bought in the last 6 months was because of a song I heard on Pandora! Thanks for loving the music. bob
