Rayland Baxter @ Grimeys New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / August 31, 2015

Touring behind his latest release on ATO Records, Imaginary Man, Rayland Baxter gave a 6pm Monday in-store appearance at Grimey’s that wound up being almost as long as his Nashville Sunday Night set at Third & Lindsley the night before. At the moment, the stars sure seem to be lined up right for the Nashville […]

Dum Dum Girls @ Grimey’s New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / March 18, 2014

The name of legendary songwriter and record producer Richard Gottehrer doesn’t turn up as often as it once did. This is understandable given that the producer of the debut records by Blondie and The Go-Go’s is now 74. However, the one project to which he still adds his magic touch is managing and producing the […]

Music City Landmarks #6—Grimey’s New and Preloved Music

  Location: 1604 8th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203 http://www.grimeys.com In this digital age, everyone has heard how the record store has vanished—both the big chain stores and the small independents.

New Madrid @ Grimeys New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / February 25, 2014

In describing how hard it is to keep up with new music these days, a friend of mine coined the expression, “it’s raining music.” I couldn’t agree more, and it takes quite a bit of discernment these days to select what to listen to. Two storms collided recently when both the on-line edition of Paste […]

Laura Cantrell @ Grimeys New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / February 7, 2014

I was first introduced to the music of Laura Cantrell by way of Elvis Costello. Costello was so taken by the pure country charm of her 2000 debut record, Not the Tremblin’ Kind, that he chose her to be the support act for his 2002 U.S. tour. After seeing several shows on that tour, I, […]

Tristen @ Grimey’s New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / October 29, 2013

These days there is no shortage of new exciting young talent in Music City. Often, it takes an old musical curmudgeon like me some time to get around to checking them out. I am so thankful that Grimey’s allows me to see new acts up close and personal for free at an early hour. Such […]

Americanarama VI @ Grimey’s New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / September 21, 2013

Someone once asked me to describe what Americana music was. My simple reply was “country music that doesn’t suck.” I further embellished this remark by adding that an Americana artist most likely 1) plays an instrument; 2) writes their own songs; and 3) doesn’t need to use Auto-Tune to correct their vocals. While my description […]

Tribute to Eddy Arnold @ Grimeys New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / August 30, 2013

Just when you thought that there wasn’t anyone else left for tribute album treatment, here comes You Don’t Know Me: Rediscovering Eddy Arnold on Plowboy Records. This effort is the brainchild of Shannon Pollard, Arnold’s grandson who founded the Nashville-based label initially as an outlet for this release. Pollard solicited the help of Nashville transplant […]

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit @ Grimeys New & Preloved Music / Nashville TN / June 11, 2013

Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled From across that lonesome ocean Bob Dylan From “Boots of Spanish Leather” These classic Dylan lines are tattooed across Jason Isbell’s left forearm, perhaps a reminder of his new-found sobriety. His much anticipated and highly acclaimed new record, Southeastern, epically documents the torment and drama that he has […]

Josh Rouse @ Grimey’s New and Preloved Music (April 20, 2013) and Third & Lindsley (April 21, 2013) / Nashville TN

I once said to Josh Rouse “You are my favorite artist younger than me.” Despite a string of recent records that weren’t totally to my liking, his latest LP, The Happiness Waltz, and his recent live Nashville appearances have reaffirmed the truth of that statement. The native Nebraskan, currently living in Spain, returned to his […]
