Learn the real story of how Nashville became Music City in “For the Love of Music: The Story of Nashville”. For over 130 years, Nashville has evolved into the world’s premier Music City. From the 1800s when the Fisk Jubilee Singers traveled across continents spreading their music, to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, and so many others building the foundation of America’s most vibrant music scene. We’ve created a one-hour documentary that tells this story in its entirety through the eyes of the musicians, songwriters, producers, and artists who live and breathe the inspiration of this great city.

The new, award-winning documentary “It All Begins with a Song: The Story of the Nashville Songwriter” will tell their story in a way it has never been told. We document their struggles, from paying their dues to working through their creative process. We celebrate their success, from the eureka moment of uncovering that musical gem that turns into a hit to receiving a Grammy and hearing how their words and music change people’s lives. But most of all, we pay tribute to the most valuable resource in the music industry today.
