The Oxford American Tennessee Music Issue

The Oxford American Tennessee Music Issue will be available on newsstands December 2, 2013. This is the finest literary music magazine you will read and savor this year.

The 15th annual Oxford American Music issue is an appreciation of Tennessee! It comes with a double CD (50 tracks), and the magazine is filled with 176 pages of excellent writing + beautiful art.

I decided not to wait for Tennessee Music Issue 83 to appear on the magazine rack at Barnes & Noble. I placed an advanced order today with The Oxford American and hopefully will have my copy on or before 12/2/13.

I was looking at the prior back issues of the annual music magazine. I discovered that many of the issues from 1-14 are sold out. I only own issues 13 and 14 right now. I am contemplating buying the cloth book, The Oxford American Book of Great Music Writing. This book celebrates the first 10 years (Issues 1-10), which would mean I just have to acquire issues 11 and 12 at some point…

    1. ilene,

      I actually did. I was knocked out by Duane Eddy. I have been following Roseanne Cash lately and it was she who acknowledged me of this show via her Facebook post.

      What did you think/like about the special?

      You may want to watch Nashville 2.0 on PBS Video as the companion piece.


      1. Yes, meant Nashville 2.0. I love that the show gave a good background to how the music evolved. You and I know this…we know Ireland, England, Appalachia…but for newcomers, I felt it was very informational. I love that we have a new generation carrying on this music..Who did I especially love? Civil Wars, Alabama Shakes, Avett Bros., Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires! I was thrilled to see Richard Thompson, Roseanne Cash, EmmyLou and Rodney….wonderful, wonderful show!!!!!! That lead singer from Alabama Shakes???? Wow, love her!


      2. Her energy is incredible, go look for Alabama Shakes on SNL awesome appearance.

        We saw the Carolina Chocolate Drops in New Haven in 2012 as part of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas.
