The Nashville Cats bounced from studio to studio along the city's Music Row, delivering instrumental backing tracks for countless recordings throughout the mid-20th century. Music industry titans like Chet Atkins, Anita Kerr, and Charlie McCoy were among this group of extraordinarily versatile session musicians who defined the era of the "Nashville Sound," and helped establish the city of Nashville as the renowned hub of the record industry it is today. Nashville Cats: Record Production in Music City is the first account of these talented musicians and the behind-the-scenes role they played to shape the sounds of country music. Many of the genre's most celebrated artists-Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Floyd Cramer, and others immortalized in the Country Music Hall of Fame and musicians from outside the genre's ranks, like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, heard the call of the Nashville Sound and followed it to the city's studios, recording song after song that resonated with the brilliance of the Cats. Author Travis D. Stimeling investigates how the Nashville system came to be, how musicians worked within it, and how the desires of an ever-growing and diversifying audience affected the practices of record production. Drawing on a rich array of recently uncovered primary sources and original oral histories,Âinterviews with key players, and close exploration of hit songs, Nashville Cats brings us back into the studios of this famous era, right alongside the remarkable musicians who made it happen.

"Dr. Julie Sellers tackles a musical genre that has become a sign of identity among Dominicans in a short amount of time. It is a social X-ray in which bachata synthesizes traits of the people of Quisqueya (Dominican Republic) constructed throughout that country's history. Additionally, this book is the result of rigorous research based in fieldwork in the Dominican Republic and New York that includes the testimony of important representatives of this musical expression."--Alexis Mendez, host, Musica Maestro "La Dra. Julie Sellers aborda un genero musical que en poco tiempo se ha convertido en un signo identitario de los dominicanos. Se trata de una radiografia social donde la bachata sintetiza rasgos de la gente de Quisqueya, construidos a lo largo de la historia dominicana de este pais. Ademas este libro es resultado de una rigurosa investgacion, centralizada en un trabajo de campo (en localidades de Republica Dominicana y en Nueva York) que involucra testimonios de importantes representantes de esta expresion musical."--Alexis Mendez, conductor de "Musica Maestro." Bachata--a guitar-based romantic music that debuted in Santo Domingo's urban shantytowns in the 1960s--is today one of the hottest Latin genres. Still, fans and musicians have not forgotten the social stigma the genre carried for decades. This book interweaves bachata's history and development with the socio-political context of Dominican identity. The author argues that its early disfavor resulted from the political climate of its origins and ties between class and race, and proposes that its ultimate acceptance as a symbol of Dominican identity arose from its innovations, the growth of the lower class, and a devoted following among Dominican migrants. La bachata--una musica de guitarra que se estreno en los barrios populares de Santo Domingo en los anos 60--hoy, es uno de los generos latinos mas populares. No obstante, sus aficionados y sus exponentes recuerdan el estigma social asociado que conllevo por decadas. Este libro entreteje la historia y el desarrollo de la bachata con el contexto socio-politico de la identidad dominicana. La autora plantea que su desaprobacion temprana resulto del clima politico en que nacio y los vinculos entre raza y clase social. Propone que su aceptacion final como simbolo de identidad dominicana surge de sus innovaciones, el crecimiento de la clase baja y sus seguidores leales entre los migrantes dominicanos.
