As a record collector for more than 40 years, I had always wondered just how it was that Nashville became the epicenter of country music.  In his latest book "How Nashville Became Music City USA" author Michael Kosser offers up the most comprehensive history of the Nashville recording scene and country music in general that I have ever read.   It is compelling and informative reading. 

Most folks are simply not privy to the inner workings of the recording industry.  Kosser tells the fascinating story of "Music Row".   It was here that the country music industry was born in Nashville in the mid 1950's.  You will be introduced to many of the important and influential players who helped shape the Nashville recording scene.   Making a hit record is certainly not a simple process. There is usually a dizzying array of people involved from the songwriters, publishers, promotion people, record label executives and of course the artists themselves.   If you have never read a book about the recording industry then "How Nashville Became Music City USA" would be a great place to start.  Michael Kosser has managed to unearth a lot of new information I have never seen before. As an added bonus there is a wonderful CD that offers the reader 10 historic "demo" recordings that will greatly enhance your enjoyment of this book.  All in all, this was a very well thought out project. Recommended!
