Nashville: Behind the Curtain
An intimate look at the Nashville music and entertainment scene featuring photography of such artists as Callie Khouri, T Bone Burnett, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Kacey Musgraves, Holly Williams, Chip Esten, Ashley Monroe, Guy Clark, and many more, with personal stories about Nashville from the artists themselves.
Khouri was awarded the 2016 Patsy Montana Award. Named for 1987 Honoree Patsy Montana, this award recognizes those whose work in the entertainment field continues and advances the tradition of the cowgirl in the areas of film, television, music, writing and theatre.

From candid photographs taken in the homes of Kacey Musgraves and Emmylou Harris and backstage moments with Luncinda Williams and Holly Williams to performance and studio images of some of Nashville’s brightest stars, Nashville: Behind the Curtain offers a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the lives of those who call this creative mecca home.
