Songwriter-driven label Nashville Underground is celebrating its 10 year anniversary with the Nov. 10 release of a retrospective 4-CD box set. The label was formed by songwriters Lari White and Chuck Cannon. The new set features tracks from 24 songwriters and will launch with a party/concert at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley club on Nov. 9. Label co-founder  and President, Lari White commented, “We modeled Nashville Underground after Windham Hill Records, an amazing jazz label that single-handedly created a brand for a very unique style of music. People came to know Windham Hill as a source for great modern modal jazz, even though the artists’ names might not be familiar. That’s where we hope to take Nashville Underground, to being the source for America’s best hit-song writer/artists.”
