I'm sure if there are, they "play wild as mountain dew."

Sorry. Tried to hold myself back. Couldn't. Hope you find somebody.

I lived in both Nashville and Chattanooga back in the 80's and loved them both. Lots of famous sightseer stuff around Nashville of course and the aforementioned Jack's can be found about halfway down to Chattanooga on I-24 in Winchester. Can't help you anymore on local jams but we do have a 'Catter there......Kim C. She doesn't post as often as she used to but you might post a PM to her letting her know dates and all if she drops in!

That would be me...though there are others, I'm sure. Actually, I'm not a Nashville 'Catter anymore since I moved out to the Boston-Theta area(about 35 miles SW). Used to have a place @ Edgehill & 17th Ave, South...smack dab in the middle of 'Music Row', but as the publishing deal didn't work out(they seldom do)and the relationship DID we decided rural, cheap and healthy was the way to go. So, 5 bicycles, 4 acres, 3 dogs, two vehicles and one cat. Got in just ahead of the 'yuppie swarm' and the 'interstate scar' that's cutting through the poorest part called 'Holt's Chapel'. It's just a matter of time before there's a Mapco and a Shell station down on Pinewood road. There's alot of wealth and influence in this area as the Judds...all but Cletus T...no relation, Michael McDonald, John Hiatt, Tony Joe White, and the Ingrams(publishers of religious books) all made sure the interstate exchange was kept well away from their "Tennessee Land Trust Acreage'. That particualr land scam was started by a guy named Aubrey Preston who's Mom had some money and he had a glib way about him. By the time the locals had sniffed him out for the opportunistic carpetbagger he really was he'd scooped up about half of the village of Leiper's Fork in one way or another. He's got a band called 'The Homer Dever Band' which is based on a completely contrived story about a moonshiner who, supposedly lives back up in the hills and only shows his face once in awhile. Anything to do w/Leiper's Fork is a tourist trap and best avoided. You want the real deal...stay down on Broadway, that's where the rubber meets the road in Nashville. Out here it's painful to watch the transformation as the long time locals get pushed out or absorbed as 'overseers' to acreage their great-grandparents worked long before the invention of the recording disk. There's a combination a resentment and resignation. My wife and I feel honored to have been accepted by the long time residents whose ancestors are in most of the grave plots around here.

Sorry, for the thread drift. I'm in the process of creating a work based on this 'eminent domain' landgrab and it's in the forefront of my mind. Downtown Nashville is fantastic for seeing 'worldclass' talent' onstage at 10:00 AM on a weekday. Stay away from the Station Inn or The Bluebird Cafe as they've become a litle self-important, though they do get the best of the best for practically nothing.

thanx all, esp. Jeff... got a place out in the country in Goodlettsville for a few days.... an easy ride to town. Will hook up with some friends over from Ireland for the NSAI convention.... was here last year. didn't do anything touristy, but had some fun jammin'... also maybe meet up Danick D. who plays guit. with Emerson Drive. another Quebecois. He's on the road a lot but will be playing the Opry on Fri. Keep up the good fight Jeff.....

Thanks bankley, we will. If you do anything 'touristy' take the 'Trashville Tour'...it's the BEST. They'll do things like show you where George Jones drove his riding lawnmower/tractor to the liquor store when Tammy hid the keys to his car(s). Brown's Diner(a Kristofferson, Billy Swan, etc. hangout) is still there...barely. If they're around make an effort to see 'Plaid Grass'...a phenomenal mix of BG and Celtic...great, great band.

I echo the comments about Broadway - I always visit Gruhn's Guitars when I'm in Nashville and would recommend stopping in. The Ernest Tubb Record store is just across the street if you want to rummage thru a goldmine of vintage recordings and country music memorabilia, you know, back when country was really country. -btmp
