Summary
Havighurst recounts the influence of the Nashville radio station WSM, which gave the city the name "Music City USA." He began to research the station's history and impact when he moved to Nashville in 1996, and was also impelled by the public response to its owner's decision to drop the classic country format in 2002. He discusses the artists and businesspeople involved in the station's story, its launch of the Grand Ole Opry and other popular shows, and other events and influences from its origins to the 1990s. Indexes of song titles and subjects are included. Havighurst is a writer, editor, and producer based in Nashville. He is a former staff music writer for the Tennessean and an independent journalist.
