The music industry provided its fans with a magnificent switch during the mid-1960s, from country style lyrics with colourful words and a tangling dance to a new era with rock influences and a more accentuated rhythm. Music Row also offered the public some highly commercial folk expending the singer-songwriter artistry to bigger dimensions.
In 1966, when recording Blonde on Blonde, Bob Dylan found Nashville quite congenital. Johnny Cash also found himself opening up to the new style. He provided the yet unpopular music makers with invitations to his overly viewed show. Showing the world that the change isn’t that bad, Cash managed to replace the negative feedbacks into positive ones. The switch worked best for the country singers who immediately saw the opportunity and enlarged their portfolio.
The impact was surprising. Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City proved to be a true portal to a new upcoming era. The 5,000-square-foot exhibition, strategically taking place at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, through 31st of December, 2016, offered the listeners unique artifacts, music and video and wonderful perspectives put into complex displays. The project is basically a “backstage” view of the Dylan-Cash partnership and their world-changing imagination in music. The result consisted in multiple recording acts in Nashville studios, together with fresh new contributions of the Nashville studio musicians, the Nashville Cats. They were actually the key to this new alliance.
Many gifted guitarists, such as Charlie Daniels, Mac Gayden and Wayne Moss, as well as drummer Kenny Buttrey and harmonica master Charlie McCoy provided with their flawless skills into making some of the best music ever heard.
