We took Blackberry Smoke record shopping and this is what happened
The $75 record store challenge - this month, Southern rockers Blackberry Smoke
Grimey’s Music is more than just Nashville’s best-loved record shop. Since 2004 it’s been the busy hub for all that’s hip in Music City, with a selection of more than 9,000 new and re-loved vinyl LPs, a friendly, knowledgable staff, in-store shows by everyone from the Black Keys to Mumford & Sons to Metallica, and an intimate downstairs music venue, The Basement, that plays host to local and national acts every week.
Standing among the album racks near the Bs, with one hand resting covetously on David Bowie’s Who Can I Be Now? box set, Brit Turner says: “When we find a good indie record store like this we’ll always come back when we’re on tour.”
