Originally published on Wed April 10, 2013 6:26 pm

Today's guest, Leagues, provides a perfect start to World Cafe's week-long visit to Nashville, because it perfectly encapsulates the change going on there.

Lechner co-hosts the radio show Latin Alternative and works as a contributing writer for Rolling Stone, L.A.
