The Deal

Don McLean

Don McLean performs "American Pie" Live in 2011


  • Best film analogy for Don McLean’s “American Pie”: it’s the Citizen Kane of American folk music
  • Worst film analogy for Don McLean’s “American Pie”: it’s the American Pie of American folk music
  • Length: an epic eight-and-a-half minutes
  • Why it’s been subject to endless analysis: the lyrics center around The Day the Music Died—a.k.a. the day Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and Big Bopper all died in a plane crash—and possibly other historical events that McLean hasn’t confirmed or denied
  • What McLean says the song means: “It means I don’t ever have to work again if I don’t want to”
  • Other hits: his cover of Roy Orbison’s “Crying”; his Van Gogh tribute, simply titled “Vincent”

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

Even though it opened in 2006, Schermerhorn Symphony Center looks like it's been a part of the landscape for centuries. That's because the center, which is named for Nashville Symphony's late maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, took its design cues from famed European concert halls. Its classic appearance is enhanced by 30 soundproof windows, which allow natural sunlight or unnatural spaceship lights to stream in. A custom-built organ rings out through the hall, and a convertible seating design allows the hall to morph into a ballroom floor for cabaret shows or weddings.
