  Music City: Place and the Production of Culture in Nashville  
(Academic)

Presentation by Richard Lloyd, Associate Professor, Dept. of Sociology, Vanderbilt University

Few cities in the world have as robust an association between place and music as Nashville TN, today called Music City. It is home to a durable legacy as birthplace of a major popular genre, is a core music industry center, and hosts a thriving indie-alternative scene on its East Side. This presentation examines the inscription of Music City identity on Nashville's built environment, including the landmark Ryman Auditorium and the humble honky-tonks of downtown, the hulking new Music City {Convention} Center, the label offices and industry enterprises of Music Row, and the neo-bohemian environments of East Nashville. Dr. Lloyd will show how both quotidian spaces and ambitious new installations are fused with the city's musical past and present, elaborating a three-part typology depicting the joining of city place and cultural production: Legacy, Industry and Scene. This approach simultaneously unpacks Nashville, raising the volume on the city dimension in Music City, while elaborating a paradigmatic approach transposable across urban environments.
