The Birthplace of Country Music is pleased to announce the release of “Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited” album.

Celebrating the impact that the 1927 Bristol Sessions had on the country music industry, “Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited” features re-creations of the original Bristol Sessions recordings.

Also known as the "Big Bang of Country Music," the legendary recordings by Ralph Peer took country music to a new level and produced pioneers of the genre, such as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family. Johnny Cash referred to this event as "the single most important event in the history of country music."

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Carl Jackson, these songs are accompanied by narration from longtime Grand Ole Opry host Eddie Stubbs and their enduring beauty shines through. Not only does this album pay homage to the original recordings, it is destined to stir a re-awakening within the industry the 1927 Bristol Sessions helped shape.
