"It was a very different town than it is now," says Greg Oswald, who co-runs William Morris Endeavor's country music division and moved to Nashville from California in the '80s to work for Barbara Mandrell.

The Country Gentlemen. "Bringing Mary Home." Scholarship on women and music is mentioned here; for more detailed discussions see Feminism and Gender. His songs have been covered by Simon & Garfunkel, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Laura Marling, and Bert Jansch. Nashville's stereotype as a country music backwater is now as quaint as a Hank Williams hit. Between 1890 and 1960 about 1000 orchestral works are known to have been composed by women; most of these, such as Florence Bea Price’s Symphony in E minor (1932), the second symphony composed by an American woman and the first by an African American woman, were written after 1930.
