THE HEART OF COUNTRY - HOW NASHVILLE BECAME MUSIC CITY USA
This historical biography of the glittering hub of Country Music reveals the dynamic relationship between commerce and art that has defined Nashville since 1925. It explores the conflicts that have confronted Nashville’s artists and music industry down the years; for example, the creative pressures of 'the Nashville sound'; the devastating impact of Elvis and then Bob Dylan; the rise and fall of the Urban Cowboys and the struggle of several Nashville legends to confront their inner demons.
