As you may know, The Black Keys moved to Nashville a while back. And they’re loving it. In a blog post on Tune in Music City from The Tennessean, drummer Patrick Carney responds to thoughts about their new affiliation with Nashville holding weight in Music City’s recent press:
“The city’s been doing really cool stuff musically, for what, 70 years or something like that? So two (guys) moving from Akron to Nashville, I don’t think it makes a big difference.”
We’re happy they’re here and that they like it so much. We’re also happy that some that may note have looked at Nashville before are now very interested due to The Black Keys residence status. But we also tend to agree with Carney’s statement. This town definitely has been churning out some amazing musical influence over the past century. We’re glad they’re now a part of that.
Later in the post, the other Black Key Dan Auerbach had this to say:
“I’ve met a bunch of friends who are just all creative people, artists, thinkers, really motivated to do things. It’s exciting. It’s an exciting time in this city.”
Now, that: we TOTALLY agree with. It’s a very exciting time in this city. And we love it.
