The People Issue 2009


A city is only as distinctive as its citizens. In this issue, the Scene celebrates some of the people who give Music City its character—who they are, what they do, and how they shape the place we live. They are musicians, politicians, performers. They are athletes, bakers, teachers. Some are known the world over; some may live a few blocks away from you, but have never made your acquaintance. All are worth getting to know. Consider this issue an introduction.

Our special thanks to the Scene's yeoman photographer, Eric England, a man who practically defines the city in many ways, some actually printable. But that's a story for next year.
