The City Paper got a few words out of "artist developer" Jason Hollis about the Nashville music scene. Also, I'm pretty sure the article wasn't edited.
"Now there are plenty of bands in Nashville that could break big soon and that have a regional fandom. And the word has gotten out nationally that those groups here."
Examples of those rising bands include The Features, The Privates, De Novo Dahl and Silver Jews, Hollis said.
