Nashville local Cal Landry, born and bred in burgeoning Music City, was intrigued to learn that New York City has a street with a name identical to that of the thoroughfare running through downtown Nashville, "Broadway."
"Funny that two big cities would end up coming up with the same name for their roads," mused Landry. "You'd think the Big Apple mighta tried to be a little more original."
Landry says that he's heard that NYC's Broadway, too, is bustling with theater venues, restaurants, and clubs. "Sounds just like Nashville," he said. "Lotta honky tonks, watering holes, and truck stops, I'd imagine." He chuckled. "Bet ya the biscuits and gravy are better here, though."
According to Landry, in his youth, he used to spend a great deal of time yucking it up in the smoky barrooms and dim-lit holes-in-the-wall on Nashville's lower Broadway, but these days, he prefers things a little more low-key.
"The crowds get to me," he said. "New York's a bit bigger, though - probably a little more room to breathe on their Broadway. Hope so, for their sake!"
