Climbing the Charts: The Ascent of Nashville
In “Climbing the Charts: The Ascent of Nashville,” Wagon Wheel co-founders Angie Lawless, Brandon Miller, and Steve Morris explore Nashville’s ascent over the past couple of decades. On January 9, 2013, the New York Times dubbed Nashville “It City” (Nashville’s Latest Big Hit Could Be The City Itself), and this work explores the impact of that article and how it influenced how the city was framed and covered by the national and international press. The authors interview dozens of Music City’s true movers and shakers, makers and taste mavens, in exploring where Nashville has been, is now, and where it is heading.
