Lately I've been noticing that most crowds at the venues I've been playing would rather hear modern rock than country. Has anyone else run into this? I mean...this is Nashville for crying out loud!!! People would rather hear a band cover Garbage or Journey more than Buck Owens or Ray Price. What the #$@*!
Honestly, that little corner on lower Broad (Roberts, Laylas, etc.) is the only place where the crowd really wants country music. Pretty ironic and funny if you ask me. I moved here to play this music and most places don't want it...ARGHH! If I hear another band play a Guns and Roses song at a honky tonk downtown I'm going to drown myself in a bottle of Jack.
I guess I should just focus on my own stuff. Thanks for letting me vent...now I'm off to play another weird show!
