Every bar on Broadway is licensed to a country singer or group. Even Kid Rock has a three story bar. It’s be 25 years since I’ve been here, back then it was just a bunch of dive bars with really good singer song writers working on their material. Now it’s a college atmosphere with a shit ton of bachelorette parties.

however, the African-American Music History Museum was really good (we had our reception their last night). Awesome walk through the history and development of jazz, blues and hip-hop. Highly recommend if you are into music.

Anyway, csb

Reminds me of a time when I went to New Orleans. Came in late, met my bros and some hos. I ended up having a 3some, wife doesn’t know about it. I did some drugs all weekend.

It's been trending this way for the last 5-10 years. Have you seen all of the party trailers and tractors running through downtown? Most locals are moving to the periphery of downtown and the heart is purely tourist.

What hotel are you staying at?

I walked right by there on my way to a meeting yesterday. My office is on the south side of downtown near Ascend Amphitheater.

Ton of decent local options at Assembly/5th and Board. I've heard Justin Timberlake's 1230 Club is really cool, but reservations are impossible.

Let me know if you need any recs.

Makes sense. Pop country (Nashville) is really only appealing to 16-40 year old women.

you can’t always get what you want!
“Murder on Music Row” was written in 1999 and that song is all about Nashville ( and country music) and it’s commercialization. Geo. Strait and Allen Jackson have made a lot of $$$ singing this song.

Good to know that some around here think that rules don't apply to them.

Jackass.

I was there in 2014, 2015 and 2017. There is nothing on Broadway that has "hole in the wall" status anymore. It's all large and commercial.

I would love to go there for a hockey game. Their crowd always seems to be rocking.
