The Foo Fighters may be a rock band, but they’ve already had a close country connection, as lead singer Dave Grohl worked with the Zac Brown Band on their latest album, ’The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1,’ but now the entire band is embracing the Nashville music scene. The Band is starring in an HBO documentary series leading up to the release of their new album, ‘Sonic Highways,’ which includes a stop in Music City.
“I really believe the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result,” Grohl explains in the trailer, which you can watch above. The documentary features appearances by Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, who were all supportive of the Foo Fighters’ endeavor. “I know that my music has been influenced by all these different cultures,” Nelson notes. Parton explains in the series the power that Nashville has on so many artists.
