As I read it, the proposed law [targeting street preachers] would prevent street musicians from performing in Music City.
I play the sax on the street when the weather is right and I’m in the mood. To be sure, a saxophone is a mechanical device that produces and amplifies sound. Would saxophone playing in public be illegal under this law? Apparently so.
The phrase “musical instrument” is included in this [bill’s] draft. If this law goes into effect, then Nashville should hand over the title of “Music City” to New Orleans — or some other deserving city that has a little more tolerance and a lot more cool.
These obnoxious street preachers should be considered an undeveloped tourist attraction; squeeze it and make lemonade. Don’t ban street musicians in Music City.
