NASHVILLE SKYLINE

bob dylan nashville skyline NASHVILLE SKYLINE is the ninth studio album by Bob Dylan, released on April 9, 1969, by Columbia Records as LP record, reel to reel tape and audio cassette.
    Building on the rustic style he experimented with on JOHN WESLEY HARDING, NASHVILLE SKYLINE displayed a complete immersion into country music. Along with the more basic lyrical themes, simple songwriting structures, and charming domestic feel, it introduced audiences to a radically new singing voice from Dylan, -who had temporarily quit smoking- a soft, affected country croon.
   The result received a generally positive reaction from critics, and was a commercial success. Reaching number 3 in the U.S., the album also scored Dylan his fourth UK No. 1 album.
