Night Train to Nashville: Music City Rhythm & Blues Revisited is the companion book to the twentieth anniversary reprise of a special exhibition examining a vibrant, little-known chapter in the history of Music City USA. Together, the exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and this companion book illuminate an important era in Nashville’s music history.

Among the stories recounted in these pages:

  • The ways that iconic musicians including Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix honed their skills on Nashville bandstands.
  • How Nashville led the way in broadcasting groundbreaking and influential R&B on radio station WLAC and through TV shows such as Night Train and The!!!!Beat.
  • The musical collaborations of R&B stalwarts such as Bobby Hebb, Jimmy Sweeney, and Ted Jarrett with Music Row musicians, including Boudleaux Bryant, Floyd Cramer, and Hank Garland.
  • The recording of Etta James’s scorching live album Etta James Rocks the House at Nashville’s New Era Club, and Arthur Gunter’s classic recording of “Baby Let’s Play House” for Nashville’s Excello Records.

Includes more than 100 photographs and capsule descriptions of classic R&B records cut in Nashville. 72 pages.
