Country Music Artists in Nashville

nashville at the country music hall of fame spotlight exhibitionThe Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a special spotlight exhibition dedicated to ABC's hit television series Nashville on April 5. "Nashville": Like a Country Song, which features costumes, props and more from the acclaimed drama, is located within the museum's permanent exhibition on the second floor; the exhibit will run through October 31, 2013.

"Nashville" airs on the ABC Television Network on Wednesdays, 10:00 - 11:00 p.m., PT/ET and is executive produced by Dee Johnson ("Boss, " "The Good Wife"), R.J. Cutler ("The September Issue, " "The War Room"), and Oscar-winning screenwriter Callie Khouri ("Thelma and Louise"). The weekly drama focuses on the lives and careers of country music rivals Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes, played by Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, respectively; the show also features a supporting cast of industry insiders, musicians, fledging artists and politicians. Filmed on location in Music City, the series gives viewers a realistic look inside the music industry. Khouri says the show "plays out like a country song. There's heartbreak; there's cryin'; there's drinkin'. The whole notion is to live in the world of country music, so you'll get everything that goes along with that."

Each episode also features original songs, such as "Wrong Song" and "If I Didn't Know Better, " performed by the actors. Executive music producer, T Bone Burnett-in league with co-producer and musician Buddy Miller-keeps the show's tunes sounding authentic. This winning mix of music and drama made the series the most anticipated new show of autumn 2012: Among its many accolades, "Nashville" was described by the Los Angeles Times as "big, bold, wildly ambitious and great fun"; and Entertainment Weekly declared it "the best new show of the fall season, boldly soapy, seamlessly musical."

Artifacts on display in "Nashville": Like a Country Song include:

*A metallic-toned cocktail dress, with bronze paillette overlay and copper sequins and beading, and snakeskin-look platform peep-toe shoes, worn by Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) when she performed "Wrong Song" with Juliette Barnes.

*A beaded, strapless mini-dress, worn by Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) when she and Rayna Jaymes performed "Wrong Song."

*A 2009 Gretsch G6121-1955 Chet Atkins solid body guitar and personalized strap played by Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) in the pilot episode of "Nashville."

*A Boho-inspired black lace dress with silky skirt, worn by Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen).

*A Gibson LG-2 guitar belonging to Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio).

*Framed art featured in the episode "You Win Again, " in which fictional record label Edgehill Republic throws a party to celebrate the platinum success of the Rayna Jaymes-Juliette Barnes duet "Wrong Song."

There's nothing to say.

There is no infrastructure for bands in this town. It's a recording town, not per se a music town. There are more recording studios per capita in Nashville than anywhere else, but as far as music in general, I don't know about you, but I've been here twelve years and perhaps once, or twice, seen anything worth writing home about. And it was all independent artists who Nashville absolutely ignored.
I can only speculate as to their motivations on this (enforced laziness of A&R due to the neo-fascist hell that is modern corporate sales, I'd wager), as there is also no dialogue about the live music scene in Nashville

(March 8) - Faith Hill and Tim McGraw -- two stars who usually stay out of politics -- blasted the Hurricane Katrina cleanup effort, with Hill calling the slow progress in Louisiana and Mississippi "embarrassing" and "humiliating."
The country music artists -- who are natives of the storm ravaged states -- were at times close to tears, and clearly angry when the subject of Katrina came up during a news conference today. They had met with reporters in Nashville to promote their upcoming Soul2Soul II Tour, but when asked about the hurricane cleanup, the stars pulled no punches.
"To me, there's a lot of politics being played and a lot of people trying to put people in bad positions in order to further their agendas," McGraw, a 38-year-old native of Delhi, La
