I recently spoke to Nashville, and it wanted me to pass this message along to New York and Los Angeles.
Do you think you could rethink your presumptuous attitudes towards our styles of music and way of life? Will you please come and visit sometime?
We have so much more going on here beyond our sacred Country music. Even if Country music was all we had going on, we would still have plenty to offer.
But we’ve grown. A lot. And continue to.
The whole hillbilly thing is grossly outdated.
Let’s be (better) friends. We’re not so different; you and I.
Much love. Hope to see you soon,
