Where does the best country music come from? Does it come from the southeast or the southwest. The southeast gives us the Nashville scene with stars such as Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Porter Wagoner, Hank Williams, Sr., John Conlee, Joe Nichols, Brad Paisley, and Tim McGraw. The southwest gives us the Austin scene, with such stars as Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, and Willie Nelson. Any opinions?
