Released on 15/03/10. Nashville has always been known as the home of modern country music, but the Music City earned its nickname because it was a place where all types of music were performed and recorded.

Artists like B.B. King, Wynonie Harris, Big Joe Williams, Smokey Hogg, St. Louis Jimmy Oden, Joe Tex, Joe Simon, Cecil Gant, Betty LaVette, Slim Harpo, Lazy Lester, Roscoe Shelton and Lightning Slim recorded for Nashville record companies during the heyday of the independent labels (1940s-1970s).
