The Bitter Southerner declares Big Ears “the best festival pound-for-pound in the US”

The Bitter Southerner declares Big Ears “the best festival pound-for-pound in the United States” and beautifully details the evolution of our scruffy city in the charming piece here. Rob Rushin explains the fascinating history of Big Ears founder Ashley Capps’ creative ventures including festival venues such as the historic Tennessee Theatre and Bijou Theatre, as well as The Mill & Mine, Bonnaroo, and — of course — Big Ears. It’s a gem of a story and an important reminder of the power of art. Enjoy!
