Connections to Music City
If Nashville is Music City then Centerville is Grinders Switch, home of Minnie Pearl. Sarah Colley Ophelia Cannon was just one of many entertainers who made their way to Nashville and became legends in Music City. The connections live on through local history and on-going events like the Grinders Switch Hour, a weekly, live radio program from the Chamber of Commerce office in Centerville.
Through the Hickman County Public Library, the staff there and other involved citizens produced a video of the musical heritage of Hickman County that features many of the well-known musicians who started here.
