Years before the first radio broadcast of country music from Nashvilles Grand Ole Opry, music and publishing were central to Nashvilles self-identity.Thousands of songs flooded into the Cumberland and Tennessee River valleys from Southern Appalachia, sung by folk performers.

These songs became the foundation for the folk-hymn traditions that grew throughout Tennessee. Into this stream flowed a body of African American spirituals, gospel, and minstrel songs. The arrival of trained German musicians brought classical styles to this gathering stream ofmusical confluences. These musicians found a home in the academies and businesses of Nashville. Nashville Music before Country is the story of how music merged with education, publication, entertainment, and distribution to set the stage for a unique musical metropolis.
