I know what you're thinking! Actually, I don't. The folks at the LimeWire Store approached the Scene about doing a free sampler of Nashville bands for their website, so what do you think we said?
Go here right now, as in immediately, and download Ear to the Ground: Nashville for free. How easy is that? It's got songs by Cortney Tidwell, How I Became the Bomb, The Dynamites Featuring Charles Walker, Jensen Sportag, The Privates, Kidsmeal, Those Darlins--y'know, the good stuff. (If you're really squeamish about a free download, you can preview all the tracks by clicking the big play button under the compilation artwork.)
So enjoy. There are similar samplers up for other cities like National League champion Philadelphia and, uh, Cy Young Award-harboring(?) San Francisco, but first things first, people. First things first.
