2013-05-23 20.20.37Hey! Last night in Nasheville was awesome! I had creme brûlée gelato (which you should totally try if given a chance), but the music was even tastier. Walking thru “The District” (Nasheville’s downtown music scene) looking for a honkey-tonk bar that would accept 12 year olds, I heard enough different types of music outside supposed “honkey-tonk” bars and on the street that I decided to look up honkey-tonk to see who’s a composer and who’s just a poser. Turns out honkey-tonk is a steel guitar or fiddle playing a full two beat rhythm with a crisp backbeat. Apparently it was named originally because  the pianos in the dives it was played were often poorly cared for, tending to be out of tune and having some broken keys. Anyway, I didn’t hear any honkey-tonk, but I heard plenty of other joyful noise issuing from every crevice, crack, busker, bar, lamppost, bike… It is truly music city U.S.A.
