If I were to move somewhere for the music scene.... It would not be Nashville. Sorry, I learned that the hard way, lol. There are many great players here, no doubt. Most of the top shelf guys wiggle their way into the studio scene. Many more make the connections here to build careers and although are based in Nashville spend tons of time on the road. Some of these guys even play out in town from time to time, but they don't live here to gig here. But, that's the player's end of it. Yes, there are a decent number of venues with some diversity but for the size of the city? Every day the "music scene" becomes .01% more CMT lifestyle groups pumping out the recent chart toppers to southern frat/sorority scene. Party stuff. That's basically at least 3/4 of Broadway now if not more. 15 years ago this town was run down, printer's alley & other spots still had legacy players from Nashville R&B/Blues/Swing glory years. And down the street most open bars had top shelf steel/fiddle/guitar players going over the country classics in studio by day broadway by night. There's a hair of that Nashville left if you look hard but it's withering away. There's just way, way better music scenes out there in terms of diversity. New Orleans, Austin, every major city in California and many others. Hell, if you like R&B/Blues Memphis smokes Nashville. Is there enough diverse music to keep a fella busy? Yes. Be forewarned, if you move into Davidson county you'll be spending 400K+ for a decent sized house that's cheaply built in a hood with zero sidewalks, underfunded schools and possibly a modest meth scene. But, hey, it's your money! FYI, I moved from Chicago.
