Artists came to Murfreesboro not only to perform but also to record. Though recording in Murfreesboro did not become the large industry that it became in Nashville, the Murfreesboro segment of recording was still significant. With studios occurring in the 1960s-1970s, Murfreesboro’s recording sector took on a national perspective as greats such as Jimmy Buffet came to the ‘Boro to record. Likewise, in the 1990s, local Murfreesboro bands recorded in the city and then took on a national name. Recording in the ‘Boro brought opportunity and prestige.
