The New Nashville, The Lone Bellow In The Studio

Derek Hoke is one of several new and noteworthy Nashville artists that made music journalist Craig Havighurst's list.

The ABC drama Nashville has taken TV screens by storm thanks to its fairly soapy-but-realistic depiction of two country music stars, the Nashville music industry, and some great original music. Today on Soundcheck we take a look at life in the so-called "Music City" with Kim Severson, who recently profiled Nashville for The New York Times, and Craig Havighurst, a journalist and producer\co-host of the local radio program Music City Roots.

And The Lone Bellow is poised for a breakout in 2013, with its debut album due later this month. We hear an in-studio performance from the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based group.
