Local Albuquerque Music Scene
The Albuquerque music scene doesn't get much press but Albuquerque was mentioned in the song "Everywhere" by Tim McGraw. Weird Al Yankovic also pays tribute to the city with his song "Albuquerque," which is the home of The Shins. The Weekly Alibi is the alternative publication that covers the local scene. Even though America hasn't heard much of this town, in the 2000s it has been one of America's fastest growing cities in the 21st century. In 2006 the city was rated best in the nation by Forbes for business and careers.
