Stuck Inside of Knoxville / Knoxville Urban Guy
When Alan Sims (aka Knoxville Urban Guy) started up his blog Stuck Inside of Knoxville With the Urban Blues Again (a play on the Bob Dylan song) in 2010, he did so after having lived downtown for about a year. He hadn’t been able to find a blog that covered daily life there, so he decided to do it himself. Since then, his blog has grown from covering everything from small moments—a jazz show at Bella Luna, say—to breaking news about openings on Market Square. “Stuck Inside of Knoxville is my love song to the city where have lived since 1982 and to the downtown into which I moved in 2009,” he writes at stuckinsideofknoxville.com, and it’s a jaunty little tune.
