This book reminds me, in the sweetest way possible, that I probably should have never left Nashville.— CHRIS THILE

Introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Jon Meacham
A dynamic, experiential, and intimate portrait that explores the many sides of the legendary Southern city and country music capital, from award-winning writers Ann Patchett, Jon Meacham, and acclaimed photographer Heidi Ross.

Nashville is a creative collaboration that awakens the senses, providing a virtual immersion in this unique American city hailed as the Athens of the South. Patchett, Ross, and Meacham in his introduction, at once capture both the city’s iconic historical side—its deep, rich Southern roots, from its food and festivals to its famous venues, recording studios, and style—and its edgier, highly vibrant creative side, which has made it a modern cultural mecca increasingly populated by established and upcoming artists in art, film, and music.

Nashville celebrates Nashvillians’ beloved locales and events, both established and new, that are the heart of the city’s character including:


Bobbie’s Dairy Dip
Broadway
Cumberland River
Buchanan Arts District
Bolton’s Chicken and Fish
Dino’s
East Nashville Tomato Arts Festival
Germantown
The Gulch
Grand Ole Opry
Pie Town (SoBro)
Pride Festival
Prince’s Hot Chicken
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Stanley Cup Playoffs
Tennessee Performing Arts Center
Tennessee State Fair
Third Man Records
WXNA Independent Radio
Here, too, are engaging vignettes spotlighting the diverse talent that makes the Tennessee city a significant cultural incubator and influencer, including singer-songwriters Marty Stuart, Gillian Welsh, and Dave Rawlings; film director Harmony Korine, textile designer Andra Eggleston, country music fashion designer to the stars Manuel, chef Margot McCormack, acclaimed pastry chef Lisa Donovan, and model and musician Karen Elson.

Blending exceptional narrative, evocative photography—including 175 black-and-white and color photographs—and a bold graphic design, Nashville is an intimate, textured panorama that brilliantly illuminates one of America’s most remarkable treasures.

My view across the road revealed a weedy patch of pavement next to a faded sign, one of those big s-era pieces, that identified the spot as a former used-car lot. On the other side was a decrepit trailer. Inside Retrograde, meanwhile, there were brioche pastries and pour-over coffees. There were brushed-brass fixtures and reclaimed wood floors. I could not.

Mennonites at Mas Tacos. This really resonated with me for some reason. Nashville is a community of self-motivated ass-kickers who make things happen and get. Talk about kicking ass. She shot for over a year and a half to capture the diverse lot of images that ended up in the book, with many more excellent photos sidelined for no other reason than a lack of space. I know how much time and hard work she put into this project, and it shows.
