As you likely recall, a while back Paste magazine did their list of coolest record stores in the country. One intrepid Paste reader decided to visit them all, or at least some of them—hard to tell if this feature is still in progress or not—and it turns out that yes, the stores are pretty neat-o.
Our first stop was at Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, Tenn. The anticipation was overwhelming. We all made bets on which of the five shops would be our favorite. For both Aaron and Jeremy it was Tubbs; mine was The Music Factory in New Orleans. We walked down the main strip in Nashville and made our way to Tubbs. As we walked in, the excitement was palpable.
The excitement isn't really palpable in the guy's description, which is exactly 19 words long (and two of those words are "Cash" and "Jennings"). Read the whole thing here—wow, Grimey's has vinyl!
