Book Review: The Hidden History of Music Row

Nashville has a much deeper history than you know and this new book delves into it in a consistently engaging fashion, untangling myth from legend from fact. The city is about much more than the renowned music-makers, but those stars and their haunts are given plenty of ink here. It also contains plenty of photos of artists like Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan as well as the landmark buildings they worked and played in.
