My earliest musical memory is of my mother sitting at the dining table, sobbing to Dolly Parton's 'Letter to Heaven'. When I asked why she was crying, she took the needle back to the start of the record. I climbed up in her lap and listened, and I cried right along with her. I was in love with country music from that moment. From that album, with its cover made to transfix a little girl (rhinestones and Tressy doll hair and bright flowers and Dolly's name in bubblegum text), to the battered Tennessee Ernie Ford tapes in Dad's glovebox, country music was a huge part of my childhood. And there is nowhere that says country music quite like Nashville, Tennessee. I should be in Nashville today, for what was to be the 3rd attempt at Creation's 2020 convention, once again postponed by Covid. The previous aborted dates have each been marked somehow - the first by Rich's acoustic take on Living at Night, the second by FanWorld's Under The Covers interview on Dick Jr & The Volunteers' debut album. This time, with my hopes of ever making it to Music City dwindling, I wanted Nashville to take centre stage. And not just any Nashville, but Richard's very own take on the best of his hometown. So, because living vicariously is all we have right now, FanWorld presents "Nashville - The Speight Way".
