NASHVILLE: SCENES FROM THE NEW AMERICAN SOUTH
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. 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.
Nashville: Scenes from the New American South beautifully captures my home city of Nashville in this exciting moment of change and growth.

This book is excruciatingly gorgeous. Every page makes me homesick.
A great book about a great city.

This has been a time of such great change for Nashville that I think we are all very curious to see who we are now.

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