There’s a long stretch of road between East Nashville and the Loveless Barn, way yonder on Highway 100, where Music City Roots’ regular rounds of top-notch live Americana/folk etc. go down. That road probably keeps more of us from regularly partaking in that great roots music than we’d like to admit openly.
So, gather up your thanks and pelt them at the East Nashville Beer Festival. Organizers announced today that music programming at the 2012 fest — set for March 31 in East Park — will be wrangled through a partnership with Music City Roots.
“Be prepared!” the Beer Festival folks warn. OK! We’re starting our training by emptying a frosty mug and listening to Jim Lauderdale records. It’s hard work, but we’re nothing if not dedicated to preparation.
