So I know y'all are thinkin' that we don't do anything but country music in Nashville, but I'm here to tell you that it just ain't true. Below are a couple of videos from two very different bands, and I think they illustrate the point that we have some of the most talented musicians around living right here in Music City U.S.A.
David Mead on guitar, Lindsay Jamison on drums and Butterfly Boucher on bass. Is this chick a rock star, or what?
My super-talented brother-in-law, Bill DeMain on guitar and vocals, and the lovely and talented Molly Felder on vocals and cocktail drum. These guys are huge in Japan, Thailand and South Korea!

I've posted this one before, but I don't think you can ever get enough of a surf band that got its start in a totally landlocked state. (Danny Amis, aka Daddy-O Grande, the guitarist in the blue and silver mask, is fighting multiple myeloma. Keep a good thought for him.)
And here's an oldie but a goodie. Webb Wilder, the last of the full-grown men, whose credo is: Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big, and wear glasses if you need 'em.
