Bob Dylan recorded several albums
in Nashville in the 1960's
In 1966 in Nashville, Bob Dylan cut his best selling
album  and what for many was the quintessential
album of the 60's, "
Blonde On Blonde". Nashville
wouldn't be quite the same again after that album.
People reasoned that if it was good enough for Bob
Dylan, it was good enough for them. Suddenly the
city became one of the hippest places in the world to
record in. Dylan also recorded the classic LP
"
Nashville Skyline" in Nashville (shown at left).
Session musicians included Pete Drake, Charlie
Daniels, members of Barefoot Jerry and others
