Recommend good recordings of the Nashville Sound

What are the well recorded albums that have the Nashville Sound? Talking about fold, country pop. Recommendation from different time periods would be appreciated. I never really listened to this type of music and I would like some references for mixing, listening to good playing, etc.


Thanks

All Owen Bradley-produced Patsy Cline records are definitive records. Some vintage George Jones or Tammy Wynette will get you the classic Billy Sherrill vibe.

Jimmy Bowen in the '80's with Suzzy Boggus' "Aces" and George Straits "Chill Of An Early Fall". Also check out James Stroud's productions from that era.

Emory Gordy, Jr and Richard Bennett made some great records in the 80's and 90's with Patty Loveless, Kim Ritchie, Marty Stuart and EmmyLou Harris.

All the Brent Maher tracks with The Judds are essential.

Buddy (and Julie) Miller's lo-fi, hi-soul vibe in the past 10 years is cool.


That's a very brief overview a a decade or two.

My favorite Nashville record ever is "Raising Sand" by Plant and Krauss, but I'm pretty sure that's an outlier!
