The past few years have seen a lot of buzz about Nashville, Tenn.’s fertile Rock scene, which is often presented as a counterpart to the city’s vital role as the Modern Country music business’ nerve center. Following that “cool Indie/Garage Rock vs. shiny, vapid Country Pop” scenario, one might think that all of the Country music coming out of the city is just slick Country-music-radio fodder. But as Country music in general seems to be beginning to welcome a return to the genre’s gritty heart and soul (see: Chris Stapleton’s Album of the Year win at the CMAs), Nashville has been a home to the other side of the music’s coin, pumping out amazing artists that range from progressive fave Sturgill Simpson and neo-traditionalists like Nikki Lane and the great Margo Price. Price first garnered attention with Nashville band Buffalo Clover, which found some success with its soulful Rock formula. Read more in this week's Sound Advice.
Margo and the Pricetage play Southgate House Revival Saturday with Pokey LaFarge. More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com.
