I'm impressed by the range of music at the Belmont (Nashville TN) concert every Christmas.  Pop, country, bluegrass, classical, they have it all.  
I majored in physics, since my scholarship wouldn't pay for engineering.  I paid for making the wrong choice every day after I graduated except the years in the US Army.  I could have made 25%-50% more as an engineer.  In the post-Vietnam peace recession after I graduated I had to drive a truck until the economy heated up and I worked as an electronics tech.  Three years of that and I qualified as an engineer in digital design.  Three years of that when I was dragged off that job by the Army to fulfil my 3 year requirement age 30. Going in the Army doubled my pay.  I stayed at that salary after I got out working as a test engineer, then the state passed a law against "unqualified engineers" and I was a called a specialist, like somebody with a home ec. degree.
