Show about Nashville music scene features Folds

Since landing in Nashville from his native neighboring state of North Carolina (via Los Angeles and Australia), Ben Folds has made his mark on the Music City scene, from buying and restoring an iconic recording studio to underwriting music education. A new television documentary celebrating the history of Nashville’s music will feature Folds as one of its cornerstones. Airing on ABC Television Sunday, November 3, For the Love of Music: The Story of Nashville examines the artists, producers and songwriters who make Nashville what it is and features three dozen of the city’s most prominent music figures. “You can’t get that many talented people in one area and expect the genres not to grow,”said Ben, who’s joined by stars from today and yesterday ranging from Duane Eddy, Bill Anderson and Charlie Daniels to the Black Keys and Peter Frampton. The film airs on Sunday, November 3 from 3-4 PM Eastern time.
