Bob Dylan:Nashville Skyline


Nashville Skyline is an album by Bob Dylan, released in 1969. Building on John Wesley Harding's artistic shift towards simpler music, Dylan used Nashville Skyline as a springboard for complete immersion into country music.

The result received some mixed reaction from critics at the time, but Nashville Skyline, despite its brevity (it is Dylan's shortest album), was a commercial success. Reaching #3 in the US, the album also scored Dylan his 4th UK #1 album.

At the beginning of "Girl of the North Country" either Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash can be heard swallowing a drink of water.

There's no discounting that Nashville Skyline, arriving in the spring of 1969, established country-rock as a vital force in pop music, as well as a commercially viable genre.
