“Nashville Musician’s Survival Guide” picked up by Country Music Hall of Fame and Berklee bookstore

by Dave Carew

The Nashville Musician’s Survival Guide by Eric Normand—the ultimate real-world guide for anyone who desires a music career in Nashville—is now available at both the Country Music Hall of Fame bookstore and the bookstore at Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Asked by Underground Nashville how it felt to have his self-published book “picked up” by such world-famous institutions, author Eric Normand said, “I am both honored and excited to now have my book for sale as these prestigious organizations. This will greatly help the book get into the hands of people who need this information. Self-publishing your own book is a hard road, so these new developments represent a milestone for me and the project.”

The Nashville Musician’s Survival Guide has been hailed as “awesome … required reading for any musician moving to Nashville” by CD Baby founder Derek Sivers.  In our recent review of the book, Underground Nashville said, “This book is like having your own personal, guided tour through the Nashville music industry.”

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
