On the plate you can see a guitar, banjo, and a fiddle. Country music in the 1980's was really becoming more mainstream. Country stars such as Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton had successfully crossed over into pop.
Other musicians wanted to get back to the basics of country music. These artists included Reba McEntire, George Straight, and Alan Jackson. Still others begin to combine country music with stadium rock. Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" and Brooks and Dunn's "Boot Scootin' Boogie" were huge stadium-pleasing hits.

Nashville continues to be at the heart of country music. It is the home to the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and several major record companies.
Whoever visited Nashville in the 1980's would have been surrounded by all of the music in the air. To check out this plate for yourself, visit my Etsy shop, East West Trade Route.
