Topic: Music City
Nashville, TN - Hello to the readers of Clarksville Online! My name is Sandee Gertz and I’m a writer, poet, and distracted observer of everything by the side of the road. And in my new Music City home in the middle of Downtown Nashville, I’ve found there is plenty to excite, inspire, shock, and plain old fascinate here in the most urban place I’ve ever lived.
The diversity of the music, culture, art (and street life) is endless.
