      Introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Jon Meacham

      A dynamic, experiential, and intimate portrait that explores the many sides of the legendary Southern city and country music capital, from award-winning writers Ann Patchett, Jon Meacham, and acclaimed photographer Heidi Ross.

       

      Nashville is a creative collaboration that awakens the senses, providing a virtual immersion in this unique American city hailed as the Athens of the South. Patchett, Ross, and Meacham in his introduction, at once capture both the city’s iconic historical side—its deep, rich Southern roots, from its food and festivals to its famous venues, recording studios, and style—and its edgier, highly vibrant creative side, which has made it a modern cultural mecca increasingly populated by established and upcoming artists in art, film, and music.

       

      Nashville celebrates Nashvillians’ beloved locales and events, both established and new, that are the heart of the city’s character including:

       

      Bobbie’s Dairy Dip

      Broadway

      Cumberland River

      Buchanan Arts District

      Bolton’s Chicken and Fish

      Dino’s

      East Nashville Tomato Arts Festival

      Germantown

      The Gulch

      Grand Ole Opry

      Pie Town (SoBro)

      Pride Festival

      Schermerhorn Symphony Center

      Stanley Cup Playoffs

      Tennessee Performing Arts Center

      Tennessee State Fair

      Here, too, are engaging vignettes spotlighting the diverse talent that makes the Tennessee city a significant cultural incubator and influencer, including singer-songwriters Marty Stuart, Gillian Welch, and Dave Rawlings; film director Harmony Korine, textile designer Andra Eggleston, country music fashion designer to the stars Manuel, chef Margot McCormack, acclaimed pastry chef Lisa Donovan, and model and musician Karen Elson.

       

      Blending exceptional narrative, evocative photography—including 175 black-and-white and color photographs—and a bold graphic design, Nashville is an intimate, textured panorama that brilliantly illuminates one of America’s most remarkable treasures.
