From the current edition of Jewish Lifestyles Magazine cover article on Acheinu (The Shapiro Brothers):
Acheinu's uniqueness is comprised of various components. For starters, all the music on the album was recorded in the music capital of the world - Nashville, Tennesee - by world famous musicians - the crème de la crème of the industry. Recording an album in Nashville is a first in Jewish music history! You hear the difference immediately. The songs breath, they soar, they echo with yearning, hope, and happiness on the wings of the extraordinary music.
Here are some Nashville based Jewish music recording artists.
Karen Daniel
Stacy Beyer

Also, mandolinist/clarinetist Andy Statman has recorded an unreleased album of Jewish country music called "Shabbos in Nashville."
