The Lyons Group wants to turn a closed taqueria on Lansdowne Street into a down-home eatery serving old-fashioned Southern food to the sound of country, bluegrass and folk music.

Lyons lawyer Dennis Quilty said the new restaurant would be Boston's first country-themed city. In recent years, country has become more popular in Boston - Fenway Park now hosts at least one country concert a year.
