Unfortunately, it's also one of the shortest, if not the shortest, albums of Dylan's career; the 10 songs on the CD clock in at just over 27 minutes, total time.
On this album, Dylan went to Nashville (hence the album title) and recorded with some top Nashville sessions players. Johnny Cash also sat in on "Girl From The North Country." So this album has a definite country feel to it.
The hit single from this album was "Lay Lady Lay."
This is a great album. If you're exploring or re-discovering Dylan, this is one of the essential Dylan albums to check out.

6 Decades of Dylan: 37 Studio Album Reviews (1962 - 2015)
This is the first album in what is known as Dylan's domestic period, which lasted from 1969 to 1975. The subject matter and musical direction Dylan primarily explored during this era was one of domestic and family matters, which makes sense as that was his primary priorities at the time. Ultimately, this period would culminate in the 1975 masterpiece, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.
The songs themselves are simple and direct. Eschewing the complex poetics of his electric trilogy and the socially aware lyrics of his earlier protest music, Dylan instead wrote simple love songs and lyrics much more in line with the country music of the day.
The album itself is very brief, only a mere twenty seven minutes long. This album offers several strong compositions, including the major hits "Lay, Lady, Lay," "Tell Me It Isn't True," and "Tonight I'll Be Staying here with You." "Lay, Lady, Lay" was originally written in 1968 (one of the few Dylan songs written during that year) for inclusion in the rated X film "Midnight Cowboy", but was not completed in time.Read more ›
