- Although Nashville Skyline never showed up on the U.S. country charts, the album reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and introduced mainstream pop music fans to a sound many had never heard before. This crossover of country and pop helped pave the way for bands like The Marshall Trucker Band, The Eagles and other country-rock superstars of the early 1970s.
- “Nashville Skyline Rag” is the first instrumental on a Dylan album.
- The album was never coupled with a tour, so whether it was timing or fate, two of its songs have never been played live by Dylan to date, i.e., “Nashville Skyline Rag” and “Peggy Day.”
Beer Pairing: Tennessee Brew Works, Walk the Lime
How more perfect of a pairing could there be? Tennessee Brew Works crafted an American pale wheat ale that gets tropical with fresh lime zest and various imparting citrus notes that compliments its classic golden color. Nashville Skyline was meant to be enjoyed with a beer brewed in Tennessee and one that plays off the timeless classic, “Walk the Line.” The Dylan and Cash opener “Girl from the North Country” is a duo meant to be paired with this tasty country beverage.
