For as long as Nashville has been known for its Country Music, there’s been another side to the city thriving with all sorts of musical styles and genres. This week, we take a look back at a few of them. This show tends to focus on upcoming releases and recent discoveries but generally fails to look way back and appreciate all the variety that came before.
So, we make an honest effort to fix that a little bit this week! Herein are six songs going as far back as the late 60’s to as recent as 1997. It’s not an overly researched or belabored history lesson, it’s just music you probably missed if you didn’t go looking for it.
Lots of great contextual information, research and bands to investigate came from this Nashville Scene article , Nashville80sRock.net and Versus magazine. Oh, and this 1996 Features performance will be sure to take you back in time.
