Leagues encapsulate the change that is going on in Music City. A new rock band formed by an amazing singer Thad Cockrell who was so disenchanted with his alternative country career that he was going to leave the music business before Leagues happened. Thad posed his idea to create a new band that would actually make audiences move and be happy, to guitarist Tyler Burkham and drummer Jeremy Lutito. Then, slowly good things indeed happened. Make that great things, leading to their debut album You Belong Here.

Sure, songs remain king in Nashville and so does country music. But East Nashville is brimming with creativity and we explore old and new Nashville for World Cafe Sense of Place: Nashville.
