The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum joins Music City Roots to present an evening of music inspired by the museum’s major exhibition, Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City. Legendary “Nashville Cat” Lloyd Green and veteran West Coast session musician Jay Dee Maness, who both played pedal steel guitar on the Byrds’ 1968 classic album Sweetheart of the Rodeo, will perform instrumental versions of songs from that album. They will be accompanied by bassist Dennis Crouch, drummer John Gardner, and guitarists Russ Pahl and Al Perkins. Tracy Nelson will perform blues, country, and rock songs that she recorded in San Francisco and Nashville in the late 1960s with Mother Earth. Jon Randall and Warner Bros. recording artist Charlie Worsham will pay tribute to their musical and songwriting heroes featured in the exhibit.
Music City Roots takes place at Liberty Hall in The Factory at Franklin, 230 Franklin Road, Franklin, Tennessee, 37064 and is streamed online at www.musiccityroots.com.
Tickets $15 (reserved) and $10 (general admission) are available at www.musiccityroots.com and at the door.
