You're a Nashville rookie who has no idea what's cool about the city if it doesn't involve a promiscuous Hayden Panettiere. You probably sit in your empty apartment, search 'Things to do in Nashville,' then compile a Evernote list of places to check out, like the Bluebird Cafe...The Parthenon...Opry Mills. Eventually, Music City appears 44% less fun than you originally thought when you decided to move.

Then one day with no warning at all, your stumble upon BreakOnACloud.com and realize there may be some truth to all of the good things you once heard. There’s mention of places with addresses outside of Broadway. There are articles on local musicians who do not have album art shot in a tall grass field lugging a full band’s worth of instruments. There’s even an entire section dedicated to winning stuff. Your Evernote list is soon revised with new places and events which turns your Facebook updates into jealousy inducing proclamations of how exciting Nashville is to everyone who isn’t as cool as you are.

It all started with one site. BreakOnACloud.com has a little bit of everything but little enough of the ‘everything’ everyone else is talking about to make people feel like they are ahead of the popularity curve. It’s based in Nashville so it has an internal perspective to all that’s happening musically in Middle Tennessee and beyond. The contributors tend to focus on Hip-hip, Electronic and Indie so if you’re looking for the latest Justin Moore, you probably won’t find it here unless it features Dee Goodz.

When you are new a city, GPS, the number to the nearest Chinese Food restaurant with delivery & a legal source of income are necessities. A very close runner up is a manual to develop a sustainable social life. Websites and blogs like these are compasses to the entertainment promise land.
