About Music Row

The name Music Row was derived simply by the fact the a significant number of businesses and musicians put down roots in the same particular area in Nashville between the streets of 16th Avenue South and 17th Avenue South. The first recording studio in Nashville was Castle Studio; whereas, Capital Records was the first major recording label to relocate their country-music personnel to the row. Once the Country Music Association was founded and RCA Studio B was open for business, the fate of Nashville and music was forever cemented in history.

Nashville has never been exclusively country and western music. In the early days of Music Row, Nashville was often regarded as Music City U.S.A. Music Row had a tremendous impact on rock and roll. In the early 1950s, Elvis began recording some of his 200 plus recorded songs throughout his lifetime at RCA Studio B, which attributed to the legend of Studio B and to Nashville becoming an influential music-industry city.

From the mid-1950s through the 1990s, Music Row would undergo one transformation after another. In the mid-1950s, the Nashville Sound was created in which country music began producing higher quality recordings with slight rock and roll undertones now synonymous with Nashville. In the 1960s and 1970s, women began to fight for their presence on the stage, so to speak. Women were becoming Music Row singing sensations and as office heads. While the 1960s Music Row would produce country and western legend Dolly Parton, it was not until the late 1980s and 1990s when Music Row would produce and influence several hugely successful crossover musical acts such as Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, and Faith Hill, all of whom would go on to gain popularity in both country and pop music charts.

Today, Music Row is a melting pot of industry movers and shakers. You will still find recording studios and record labels; however, you will also find an assortment of other industry affiliations such as radio stations, corporate headquarters, and video production companies. These streets have been, and are, home to some of the greats of country and western, as well as to successful crossover talents. Many people currently fear the Nashville Sound is in danger of being lost due to the growing number pre-fabricated music by companies attempting to capitalize on the popularity of the genre rather than to produce the unique, inspiring, and quality sound historically associated with Nashville and country music.
