But most of all, we pay tribute to the most valuable resource in the music industry today.

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.
