"On the right night, Buffett, John Hiatt, Mickey Newbury, Charlie Daniels, Waylon Jennings, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle and John Prine all shared the stage or sat in the audience. Patrons caught performances from the likes of Marine drill instructor and Arthur Murray dance instructor “Cowboy” Jack Clement, who might dive into the Hamlet soliloquy before busting out a crazed instrumental with his eight-piece band, then belting out a gutbucket country ballad.

    I would love to go to a place to just listen to the performer and not have them have to compete with the inane babble of the self-centered moron who is just there to be seen.

      This past August, a friend and I drove to Nashville to catch some live music. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to The Station Inn, widely regarded as one of the best bluegrass venues in the world. Every Sunday night, they host a free bluegrass jam session. Anyone can walk in off the street and join. Tiny venue of maybe 100 or so people. They sit in a circle instead of being up on the stage and just free form. During our time there, the circle varied from six people to as many as thirteen. I filmed this brief (crappy) video with my phone.
