“Nashville Cat” Charlie McCoy to Discuss Renowned Career at MTSU Nov. 14

Charlie McCoy, one of Nashville’s most acclaimed session musicians, will participate in an interview and performance Nov. 14 at Middle Tennessee State University. The singer and multi-instrumentalist—a member of the versatile group of session musicians informally known as the “Nashville Cats”—can be heard playing guitar, harmonica and other instruments on Leonard Cohen’s Songs From a Room, Bob Dylan’s first Nashville record, Blonde on Blonde, Simon and Garfunkel’s track “The Boxer” and thousands more. McCoy’s work with the “Nashville Cats” is recognized at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City exhibit, which runs until Dec. 31. McCoy will discuss his career with country music historian Dr. Travis Stimeling followed by a performance alongside fellow Nashville musicians. The event is slated to begin at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, in the James Union Building’s Tennessee Room.
