Nashville garnered the title of Music City when WSM began broadcasting the Grand Ole Opry and country music made the city its headquarters.

Excluded from this history is the African American musical heritage, woven throughout the score of white music.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum created this exhibit in attempts to show a more inclusive version of what makes Nashville Music City.

Michael T. Bertrand’s review stresses the community programs that accompanied the exhibit and the engaging presentation of this under-recognized history.
