New York, L.A., Nashville, Austin, etc.: these are all cities that get written and sung about. The places whose streets, or bars, or saloons and studios harbor, hold, and heave with musicians. They’re cities we think of as being some of the music capitals of the world. While all of these things are true, it barely scratches the surface of the American music scene.
