Overheard at last week's inaugural Nashville Scene Music Awards, for real:
"We're making a music video, super cheap."
"Cool. We're doing some UK dates."
"We're heading out on tour in the fall."
"We're mixing our record right now. Mixing is a bitch."
"The music industry is like pro sports. You're always waiting to see who gets hurt, who gets cut, who doesn't fit under the salary cap."
"Do you know any dudes who could do some CD artwork?"
"Dude, three beers was, like, 8 bucks."
"We're so broke right now."
"A&R guys don't know their head from their ass."
"Our van stinks so bad right now."
