Nashville's Lower Broad

Nashville's Lower Broad:

The Street That Music Made

Bill Rouda - Photographer © 2004

Pages: 144 with 90 duotone photographs

ISBN: 1-58834-094-5

Like the Lower East Side of Manhattan was to punk rock and Haight & Ashbury in San Francisco was to 1960's psychedelia, the Lower Broad area of Nashville was a hothouse for Country sound. The Lower Broadway area of Nashville was and continues to be the proving ground for many of country music's greatest. From Hank Williams Sr. to Willie Nelson to BR5-49, the Lower Broad holds the stories of country music in its aging landscape. Part scrapbook, part bar tour, Nashville's Lower Broad: The Street That Music Made is a visual history capturing 90 gritty and revealing duotone photographs of the people and places that made Nashville's Lower Broadway the legendary country music birthplace and proving ground that continues to thrive today. With a foreword by Lucinda Williams and an introduction by music journalist David Eason, the photography of Bill Rouda brings to life the late nights, the cheap drinks, the isolated evenings where music, thoughts, and the company of strangers collide. Nashville's Lower Broad is a story longing to be told and Bill Rouda's photography does just that.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
