Mr. Norbert Putnam, A Great One still resides among us!
Nashville Cats: Salute to Norbert Putnam
Alabama-bred bassist Norbert Putnam made his name as one of the cadre of soulful players who created pop and R&B classics in Muscle Shoals in the early 1960s. Putnam moved to Nashville in 1965, and his work graces locally recorded hits such as Joan Baez’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” Bobby Goldsboro’s “Honey,” Elvis Presley’s “Promised Land,” Linda Ronstadt’s “Long Long Time,” and Tony Joe White’s “Polk Salad Annie.” In addition, Putman is a successful producer (Joan Baez, Jimmy Buffett, Dan Fogelberg), publisher (Danor Music), and business owner (Quadrofonic Studio, Bennett House, Georgetown Mastering). This interview will be illustrated with photos, film footage, and recordings from throughout Putnam’s career. A signing will follow in the Museum Store. Included with museum admission. Free to museum members.
OUR MISSION is to identify and preserve the evolving history and traditions of country music and to educate its audiences.

- Just Another Savage!
- I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
