This book focuses on the MuzikMafia, which can be defined as a distinct musical community that developed from a stylistically diverse Nashville scene into both a social collective and a commercial enterprise that promoted musical excellence and artistic diversity. The main argument is that the MuzikMafia could not have originated elsewhere. Nashville’s diverse musical history, specific geographical layout, numerous interdependent music scenes, annual multi-billion-dollar music industry, embrace of frequent change, and dedicated listening audiences each contributed uniquely to the birth, growth, and development of the MuzikMafia.

Keywords:   MuzikMafia, musical community, Nashville, social collective, commercial enterprise
