In her latest single "New Nashville," Teagan Stewart's soulful country tones pay tribute to the city's iconic past amidst its evolving landscape.

In a heartfelt tribute to the city she now calls home, Albuquerque native Teagan Stewart unveils "New Nashville," a single that encapsulates the essence of Nashville's storied past and its current metamorphosis. Released on January 12, 2024, the song is an intimate reflection on the city's evolving identity, marked by the closing of iconic venues and the subtle cultural shifts that have stirred the hearts of its residents.

With a warm rasp that resonates over the dobro, steel guitar, and an old shuffle beat, Teagan Stewart's "New Nashville" is the epitome of modern country music, unadulterated and deeply rooted in tradition. The song is a lament, a "traditional country sounding scream into the void," mourning the loss of the Nashville that once was—a city now navigating the challenges of skyrocketing rent prices and rapid development.

Influenced by country legends like Loretta Lynn, Tanya Tucker, and Dolly Parton, Teagan's music is a blend of the old and the new, capturing the soul of classic country while embracing the nuances of contemporary life. "New Nashville" is not just a song; it's a narrative, detailing the city's iconic places and the lifestyle changes that have left locals yearning for the simpler, more authentic Nashville of the past.

Recorded in the heart of the city with producers Skyler Taylor and Andrew King, "New Nashville" is a testament to Teagan Stewart's profound connection with her adopted city. As venues listed in the song were actively closing, the track became a relevant and recent portrayal of the cultural losses experienced by the Nashville community.

In Teagan's own words, "New Nashville" is for those who cherish the real spirit of the city. "So many iconic venues, restaurants, and places that are the heart of Nashville have been priced out by developers in the past few years, and it makes our city lose a little of its soul. As soon as we wrote this one, I knew I had to record it."

With "New Nashville," Teagan Stewart captures the heartache of change but also immortalizes the enduring spirit of a city renowned for its musical heritage. It's a song for the nostalgic, for the dreamers, and for everyone who has ever called Nashville home.
