Charlie Daniels has a lot of praise for the new Bob Dylan-Johnny Cash. The singer tells “Country Weekly” he thinks it’s “really well put together,” and “actually digs down and explains what went on in the studio.” He says visitors will “find out why artists loved to come” to Nashville to record music back in the 1960s, which Charlie admits had a lot to do with all the talented musicians in the city. He explains that “the spontaneity was tremendous,” because “you could hand the musicians a piece of music and they were able to jump right in and go with it.” Daniels was one of those session musicians back then, and played on Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde,” “Nashville Skyline,” and other albums.
“Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats” sheds new light on the influence of Dylan and Cash on the music industry in Nashville, and inspired artists from outsidecountry music to come to Nashville to work. The exhibit opened at the country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville on Friday, and will remain open through the end of 2016.
