The Music of Nashville: Season 1, Vol. 1

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
There is plenty to like about the first season of ABC's prime-time drama Nashville. Executive producer Callie Khouri's take on the city's intense, competitive, thriving music and political scenes makes for saucy television. The centerpiece, of course, is music. Actors Connie Britton (Rayna James), Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes), Charles Esten (Deacon Clayborne), Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Sam Palladino (Gunnar), and others actually perform the songs in the series backed by a host of ace studio players. T-Bone Burnett is Nashville's music producer. He enlisted some of Music City's finest songwriters and the help of longtime friend Buddy Miller to co-produce (and ...

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
There is plenty to like about the first season of ABC's prime-time drama Nashville. Executive producer Callie Khouri's take on the city's intense, competitive, thriving music and political scenes makes for saucy television. The centerpiece, of course, is music. Actors Connie Britton (Rayna James), Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes), Charles Esten (Deacon Clayborne), Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Sam Palladino (Gunnar), and others actually perform the songs in the series backed by a host of ace studio players. T-Bone Burnett is Nashville's music producer. He enlisted some of Music City's finest songwriters and the help of longtime friend Buddy Miller to co-produce (and perform on) most of the songs here. The end result is a collection that provides a compelling argument that contemporary country music doesn't need to divorce itself from its history; it also makes a solid case for the radio accessibility of Americana and alt-country. Most of the music here -- Britton's elegant "Buried Under," her duet with Panettiere on "Wrong Song," and Panettiere's duet with Esten on "Undermine" use contemporary country tropes, without sacrificing soul for production sheen. In other words, it's both the singer and the song that hook a listener. Burnett and Miller don't compress the hell out of everything to make it sound bigger. Virtually all of these instruments (especially drums and percussion) sound warm and natural, and serve to accent and support the vocals rather than overwhelm them. Panettiere's "Love Like Mine," and her performance on the radio mix of "Telescope" would likely chart if they were released as singles. Americana numbers such as the Civil Wars' "If I Didn't Know Better," performed by Palladino and Bowen, scored big on YouTube and prompted numerous Twitter conversations. So too the rootsy, original version of "Telescope," performed by Lennon & Maisy Stella (aged nine and twelve, who play Britton's daughters on the series), with only an acoustic guitar for accompaniment. "Twist of Barbwire," performed by Jonathan Jackson (Avery), is a tom-tom and whammy bar-driven rocker with just enough twang to make it walk between rockabilly and alt country. It probably doesn't hurt that it was written by Elvis Costello. Esten's "Sideshow" is a lovely ballad that walks dead center between Americana and contemporary country. Usually, soundtracks for television shows are a mixed bag at best. The Music of Nashville is a very notable exception.

    This is the most enjoyable "country" soundtrack I have

    This is the most enjoyable "country" soundtrack I have heard in ages and the only one besides the T Bone Burnet produced O Brother Where Art Thou (and maybe all the way back to the soundtrack to Robert Altman's Nashville that similarly took non singers and encouraged them to dig into the genre) that I can imagine repeated playings.

    I had high hopes for the music for this series when I heard Burnett would produce and he does not disappoint, bringing alt/america/roots country royalty on board (such as Buddy Miller) to bring a range of very good actors who do not necessarily have the greatest voices to a whole other level.  Neither Britton nor Panettiere would likely get a contract outside the series, but they are well served and perform well here:  one of the graces of country music is that  story and emotion are more important than smooth pipes.

    Burnett and friends capture a variety of sub genres, from teen friendly pop (Telescope), to kick ass stomper (Wrong Song), to atmospheric progressive (Buried Under that, for better and worse remind me of Lanois produced later Emmylou Harris.)  The standouts here as they have been in scenes in the series are the duets between fledgeling songwriters Scarlet (Clare Bowen and Gunner (Sam Palladino) who take the show to a whole other level anytime they perform.  Equally accomplished is Charles Esten's take on the rough edged (but heart of gold) Deacon who elevates the work of both leading ladies to far more memorable music. Great job by all involved--highly recommended.
