A decade old article from the Columbus Alive? Powerful stuff… if you liked that article, here’s another.
Why do all the cool kids leave town?
Studies and stats only tell part of the story: Every young artist, musician and college grad who moves away takes with them a little part of what Columbus could be
By J. Caleb Mozzocco
If there’s an expert on leaving town, it may be Tim Easton. Easton, an alt-country singer/songwriter and former leader of Columbus Haynes Boys, grew up in Akron, spent some of his early years in Tokyo, then came to Columbus, like so many do, to go to college. Something of a wandering soul, he’s left town–repeatedly–and called California, Georgia and Europe home in the past.
Tim Easton left Columbus as a country singer to go to………Nashville.
I am not sure we will stop the horrific brain drain of country singers going to Nashville from across the country. Even NYC, San Fran, Toyko, Moscow and Gstaad seem to have that problem.
He did come back to “celebrate Thanksgiving with his Ohio family” per his website.
