July 15, 2017 - Princeton history professor Sean Wilentz, author of the critically acclaimed study Bob Dylan in America (2010) and a contributor to Dylan’s official website, offers remarks about Dylan’ s strong ties to Nashville and country music, and then joins a panel discussion focusing on Dylan’s album Blonde on Blonde, which was recorded in Nashville in 1966. Wilentz has written liner notes for several Dylan albums, including the Grammy-winning box set The Cutting Edge 1965–1966. Also on the panel are Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie McCoy, who played on five Dylan albums in the 1960s; and Wayne Moss, who added distinctive guitar parts to Blonde on Blonde. Pete Finney, co-curator of the museum exhibition Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, serves as moderator. Participants comment on Blonde on Blonde rehearsal tracks and studio outtakes.
