It sure is an exciting place to be right now in the music community. I have an entire summer of festivals going on, albums dropping at immeasurable rates, and so much more! I have been relentlessly busy here writing articles about things going on in the music world all over my area. We are currently all over the map in the music world, and this will be one of my many ongoing articles.
I usually add news to every one of my ongoing articles once a week, mostly mid weekly updates. This article is usually a large undertaking because there is so much involved with everything going on around Nashville at that time. So much merch to buy this week, and so many new bands to delve into and learn about.
