On my first night in Nashville, I’m sitting in a bar, watching the Academy of Country Music Awards telecast from Las Vegas. Downstairs, a country band is playing Jimmy Buffet. Led Zeppelin’s ‘Tangerine’ plays over the radio speakers to my right, and Rockabilly Country pulses from across the street. At least my beer (Miller) and my dinner (barbeque) match.
A clash of culture, a heavenly mix, or something else?
