11 Essential Nashville Songs: Country Classics That Make the Show

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Nashville is where legends are made, and aspiring stars chase their dreams. A unique blend of culture, personality and drama, it's peerless as a music scene.

ABC's series by the same name has its finger on the pulse of the city, doing justice to the promised land with a terrific collection of characters and songs.

The eclectic, acclaim-worthy tracks for Nashville Season 1 were executive produced by T-Bone Burnett, whose wife, Callie Khouri, created the show.

In Nashville Season 2, Buddy Miller took over at the helm, injecting a little more energy and a slightly more mainstream sound without any dropoff in quality.

You really can't go wrong with any selection on the show's three soundtracks, but we've picked out our 11 favorite Nashville music selections below.

Nashville Quotes

Hey Pete. I'm not exactly sure what your problem is. Maybe the good Lord only gave you two inches. I don't know. But I'll tell you one thing. You ever try to contact my friend again or in any way mess with her, I will make it my mission to ruin you. And unlike you, I actually have the power to do it.
