Best Country Albums Recorded in Nashville by Non-Country, Non-Nashville Residents

(Tie) Secret, Profane and Sugarcane by Elvis Costello and Love Filling Station by Jesse Winchester

Two completely different artists making albums with completely different objectives, they both came to Nashville to record for the greatest of reasons: local instrumental talent and the kind of vibe unavailable anywhere else. They come in search of the twang, as both pull from Americana, bluegrass and country musicians, thereby emphasizing the magnolia-scented aspects of their own music and personalities. If not classic works, they do each have a breezy charm of their own. MICHAEL McCALL
