Nashville, An American Self Portrait

Creator: John Egerton, E. Thomas Wood | 2005-06-30

Nashville: An American Self Portrait captures the essence of the city at a pivotal time in its history.

Publisher: Beaten Biscuit Press

About this book
Nashville: An American Self Portrait captures the essence of the city at a pivotal time in its history. The year 2000 was a period of signal events: a presidential primary season with two Nashvillians seeking the nomination; a fall run for the White House that Democrat Al Gore won at the ballot box yet lost in the electoral college; the 75th anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry; a farewell crusade by the Reverend Billy Graham; the 22nd decennial census of the nation's (and Nashville's) population, revealing a striking new profile of the city; a dramatic shift from home-owned to outsider-owned financial and commercial institutions; the near-collapse of the state's lawmaking authority in the final years of the old century, and the contrasting rise of Metro government in the same decade; and a stunning Super Bowl season for the brand new, Nashville-based Tennessee Titans. Created by more than 100 Nashvillians and others with a connection to the city-writers, editors, photographers, and artists-Nashville brings into sharp focus the principal players and episodes of modern politics, religion, economics, and popular culture in this quaint and thriving pocket of the American heartland.

Nashville, the western Confederacy's final gamble

Creator: James L. McDonough | History - 2004-11-12

Schofield, Hood, and others. Within the pages of Nashville, McDonough's subjects, both common soldiers and officers, present their unforgettable stories in their own words.

Publisher: Univ Tennessee Press

About this book
After Major General William Tecumseh Sherman's forces ravaged Atlanta in 1864, Ulysses S. Grant urged him to complete the primary mission Grant had given him: to destroy the Confederate army in Georgia. Attempting to draw the Union army north, General John Bell Hood's Confederate forces focused their attacks on Sherman's supply line, the railroad from Chattanooga, and then moved across north Alabama and into Tennessee. As Sherman initially followed Hood's men to protect the railroad, Hood hoped to lure the Union forces out of the lower South and, perhaps more important, to recapture the long-occupied city of Nashville. Though Hood managed to cut communication between Sherman and George H. Thomas's Union forces by placing his troops across the railroads south of the city, Hood's men were spread over a wide area and much of the Confederate cavalry was in Murfreesboro. Hood's army was ultimately routed. Union forces pursued the Confederate troops for ten days until they recrossed the Tennessee River. The decimated Army of Tennessee (now numbering only about 15,000) retreated into northern Alabama and eventually Mississippi. Hood requested to be relieved of his command. Less than four months later, the war was over. Written in a lively and engaging style, Nashville presents new interpretations of the critical issues of the battle. James Lee McDonough sheds light on how the Union army stole past the Confederate forces at Spring Hill and their subsequent clash, which left six Confederate generals dead. He offers insightful analysis of John Bell Hood's overconfidence in his position and of the leadership and decision-making skills of principal players such as Sherman, George Henry Thomas, JohnM. Schofield, Hood, and others. Within the pages of Nashville, McDonough's subjects, both common soldiers and officers, present their unforgettable stories in their own words. Unlike most earlier studies of the battle of Nashville, McDonough's account examines the contributions of black Union regiments and gives a detailed account of the battle itself as well as its place in the overall military campaign. It will become the definitive treatment of a crucial battle-ground of the Civil War.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing (SC)

About this book
Like many Southern cities, Nashville has undergone a dramatic transformation over the past two centuries, evolving from a simplepioneering crossroads into a large cosmopolitan center with its citizens representing every nationality, race, and creed. The latter years of the nineteenth century proved especially momentous in the city's growth and development, and two visionary Nashvillians, Carl and Otto Giers, documented the many different elements of city life through their photographic talent.In Nashville: From the Collection of Carl and Otto Giers Volume II, readers will journey to the Nashville of old and see the city through the artistry of the Giers' studio: a time when the city hosted some of the most recognizable and celebrated Confederate and Union officers, such as Nathan Bedford Forrest and Ulysses S. Grant, who both sat for studio portraits. Enduring the ravages of the Civil War, Nashville rebuilt itself and the Giers were there to record its rebirth, photographing everyday life against many different settings: from the city's graveyards, such as Calvary, Mount Olivet, and National Cemetery, to its poverty-stricken neighborhoods, to the elegant homes of the affluent, to the flourishing business district. Not just concerned with the routine, the Giers focused on capturing Nashville's history in the making, including portraits of state governors, such as William Gannaway Brownlow, Albert Smith Marks, and Robert Love Taylor, scenes of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and the Tennessee Industrial Exposition, and the city's most-famous attractions, Belmont and the Hermitage.

    I'm no country fan but I love this pilot

    0 5/5 JustLookAtTheFlowers (Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nashville Season 1 [HD] (Amazon Instant Video) First off, I am not a fan of country music so when I first heard about this show, I quickly dismissed it. However, when I saw a trailer I realized I needed to check it out. Rayna is a strong, independent, and very likable female lead and Connie Britton plays her so well. Hayden Panatierre's character on the surface seems like a real b****, but you find out early on that she's actually a very damaged girl with a bad family life. The production value is great and it's cool to get a glimpse at what goes on behind the scenes at the record company, backstage at concerts, and in the bars of Nashville. The show is more than just country music. There is also a politics side story, which is just as compelling as the music plot. I'll definitely keep watching this one. Also, the music is good. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 6, 2012

    A Soundtrack That's Good - Really Good

    "Nashville" is a unique show in the pantheon of TV series, because a substantial reason for tuning in is the original music. Not only are fans getting caught up in the drama of the music business, but they are clamoring for the new songs that debut on each episode. Big Machine Records has obliged with its fourth volume of the soundtrack, and pound for pound it is the best one so far. With its usual mix of artists and a variety of different country sounds, it contains some of the second season's most irresistible songs from Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Clare Bowen, and supporting stars Sam Palladio, Chris Carmack, Chaley Rose, Jonathan Jackson, and Lennon & Maisy Stella.For those who are not familiar with the series, the songs occur as live performances, studio recording sessions, impromptu jamming, or songwriting sessions. There are no magical daydreamy sequences where characters randomly break into song. Even so, each musical moment is... 5/5 Marjorie S. Morris (Kansas City) - See all my reviews, May 12, 2014

    0 5/5 SJD056 (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Music Of Nashville Season 2 Volume 2 CD+4 BONUS 2013 TARGET EXCLUSIVE (Audio CD) As resident of the city of Nashville, I am not easily swayed by packaging and hype. I live within blocks of legendary Music Row and have just about heard it all. The Music of Nashville, all of the volumes, represent what is best about this city and our artists. Every one of the artists could have a successful career in their own right. Put them all together and you have a wonderful, eclectic CD. It's not necessary to be a fan of the show (although we are) to enjoy it. The music stands on its own. There isn't a bad track on this CD. You will find yourself turning the volume up and listening to it on repeat. It's that good, as are all the CDs. Every song is as unique and wonderful as the artists. I just put in the CD and enjoy the ride. You will too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 6, 2014

    Robert Altman is a 'genius'

    As have others, I too am excited beyond belief that Criterion is honoring NASHVILLE to be part of its series. I will never forget when I first saw the film in New York City. I was stunned by it and stood in line a second and third time. It became one of the most astonishing metaphors of our political climate at the time. The film, created in Altman's improvisational style, is flooded with truthful work: Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine, Ronee Blakley, Henry Gibson, Shelley Duvall, Geraldine Chaplin, Karen Black, Ned Beatty, and the list goes on --- all contributed enormously to the mosaic. With echoes of the Kennedy assassination, the film marches on as a panorama of the sixties. The film almost ridicules Nashville and I can understand why the country capital was not celebrating its perspective The plot occurs in five days with intertwining story lines and the Grand Ole Opry as a backdrop. The finale is a political rally for one Hal Philip Walker, a radical conservative, a kind of Ted... 5/5 Robert A. Brewer "movie collector" (Las Vegas, NV) - See all my reviews, September 28, 2013

    The crowning achievement of America's most truly "independent" filmmaker. (God bless Robert Altman)

    It's been some months since I've had good reason to use my Blu Ray player, but if there's an occasion that would move me to fire up the machine, it's the release of Altman's singular masterpiece in a high-def format. From the outset, I must caution fans of the movie--especially those who, like me, are already sitting on the double VHS version and the subsequent DVD edition--not to over-elevate expectations. This latest edition strikes me as occasionally grainy and overly dark, especially for the interior shots, and the sound doesn't seem as open and crisp as Altman's more recent "Gosford Park," which I recently had occasion to re-screen. In fact, the present edition is making me all too aware of some "dated" qualities about "Nashville" that may require me to reconsider my conviction, ever since its release, that "Nashville" eclipses even "Citizen Kane" as American cinema's crowning achievement. But, first, the case for "Nashville" (freshly written in 2014):It was the... 5/5 Caponsacchi (Kenosha,, WI United States) - See all my reviews, January 16, 2014

    Another thrilled Criterion Customer because of NASHVILLE

    Is NASHVILLE Robert Altman's greatest work? When you have a maverick filmmaker like Altman, who has a unique sensibility, which leads to unique films -- M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Quintet, Short Cuts, Three Women, Cookie's Fortune -- and the list goes on and on, how do you choose a "greatest?" His films are ground-breaking, entertaining, poignant, and always incredibly photographed and acted. NASHVILLE is certainly up there -- one of the top five, and one of the most haunting. It's stayed with me all the years since I saw it during its premiere run in New York.Criterion is the best video label in the U.S., and buying/owning their disks is my biggest vice (since I periodically ignore my bank account to do so). The fact that Criterion has chosen NASHVILLE is both fitting and exciting news. It's a natural for their collection. I'll be one of the first on line to buy it, and am looking forward to the bonus materials as well.I note with strong interest... 5/5 KRabin (San Anselmo, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nashville (Criterion Collection) (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray) Is NASHVILLE Robert Altman's greatest work?

    why not give us a double cd?

    If you take all the songs released from Season 2 so far it would be a great to have them on a double album. There are 4 additional songs on the Deluxe Edition available at Target and 7 or 8 other singles available that are not on that cd. Why not make it easier on the show's fans and put them all on one double cd? But alas...Musically, I like the cd although it is rather different from both season 1 discs. Less of Connie Britton (not a bad thing, but they should have included one of her better numbers that is out on single,The Best Songs Come From Broken Hearts). Not as much Hayden Panettiere (just when I was really starting to like her) and only 1 duet between Clare and Sam (Scarlet & Gunner), which were the highlights of season 1. The songs that Clare sings are much less country to my ears than in season 1, which is a shame. The Chris Carmack (Will) songs are the most contemporary country radio friendly and pretty good for that style. Instead of 2 versions of A Life That's... 4/5 R.

    0 5/5 Linda7849 "Linda" (Cincinnati, OH USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Music Of Nashville, Season 2, Vol. 1 (Audio CD) I love the way this album has a little bit of everyone on this show. They are all so talented. I can't pick a favorite but I was lucky to get the edition with the Charles Esten song, A Life that's Good -- such a great song. I enjoy Chaley Rose's version of Wayfaring Stranger, a great traditional version. The Stella sisters are adorable and I always enjoy their music. Jonathan Jackson has never been my favorite but he's won me over with How you Learn to Live Alone. Claire and Sam's Why Can't I say Goodnight is wonderful but they never disappoint. I wish people would quit criticizing Connie Britton -- I think her sons are great. The only criticism I can give is that I'd love to hear Will Chase do a ballad because I'm a ballad kind of person. Maybe in the next edition which I'll be looking forward to. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 2, 2014

    Nashville: Volume One

    I'm not the biggest country music fan, but I have enjoyed watching Nashville each week, so naturally I bought the soundtrack.Why did I give it only four stars?Well, it is missing the best song, Fade Into You, from the series! I wonder why it wasn't included! Maybe it was only on the deluxe version that I saw in a Target ad. The problem is that I don't have a Target near by.
