LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A t least the grunge scene shoved the arrogant, joyless Brit-poppers off of MTV for awhile, so that's one good thing about the last 10 years in music.

In the same time, the Nashville rock community has grown stronger in every way: there's more talent, more diversity, and more means of support for performers to sustain a living from their craft.

Ten years ago, just four years after The New York Times trumpeted the "Death of the Country Sound" in a front-page story, the country music industry entered what could now be called the good old days.

Plus, profiles of Chucho Valdéz, Maceo Parker, and Mary Jane Lamond, a host of reissues, and more.

And our Birthday Picks are about Christian rockers and New Orleans jazz.
