Nashville has long been known as Music City and the hub of country music, but now a spotlight will be shining on the full spectrum of the city’s creativity thanks to a new documentary, For the Love Of Music: The Story Of Nashville, which will air on ABC-TV on Nov. 3. The new documentary highlights the city’s rich heritage of music and creative inspiration through the eyes and voices of artists like Kris Kristofferson, the Black Keys, the Kings Of Leon, Eric Church, Steve Cropper, Martina McBride, Ben Folds, Peter Frampton, and many more.
The special includes interviews with many of the musicians, songwriters, producers, and artists who find the city so inspiring, and leads into the upcoming 47th Annual CMA Awards later that week on Nov. 6.
Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys describes the city in this way in the special: “There really are no parameters, no walls. You can do whatever you want in Nashville.”
For The Love Of Music will air at 2 p.m. CST on ABC, and after it airs, it will be available on abc.com where it can be viewed in its entirety. Unseen clips and extended artist interviews will appear on the site as well, and a “Story of Nashville” app is in the works that will automatically listen for and sync with the film. The iPhone app will provide additional facts and stories that will pop up during the show about the artists and locations and offer bonus content throughout the film that enhances the story.
