Your Cheat’n Heart: A Vist to the Country Music Hall of Fame

This is a musical mecca weekend.  Today I am in Nashville with my kids, Aaron and Lauren, visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Studio 3B, once the recording home of popular music titans such as Elvis Presley, Chet Atkins, Eddy Arnold, and the Everly Brothers.  Tomorrow, we are in Cleveland at the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame.

See tomorrow’s post for observations of this incredible weekend.

  1. What do Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, the Beatles and Mozart all have in common? And what do they have in common with practically every other artist who’s creativity has changed the world? They are all unique. But there is something in common.
    They each changed the popular music of their times by combining already popular forms in a new way. Elvis – on that famous and fateful day in Sun Studios in Memphis he let it all loose and brought it all together again differently… the blues, country, gospel and regional elements that were his influences in his youth all came together into rockabilly, rock and roll, something that had not been heard before. Elvis on Ed Sullivan also brought together the new music form and the new medium – television in a new way which has influenced generations of rock icons to first pick up their guitar.
