Though he hails from Detroit, Jack White has made Nashville his home—and music laboratory—for several years. He was a devotee of dirty blues with his first band, the White Stripes, garage rock with his second band, the Raconteurs, and even dirtier blues with his third outfit, the Dead Weather. Working out of his Third Man Records headquarters south of downtown, he has helped rejuvenate the careers of legends like Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson, as well as developing new talent like sock-hop duo the Secret Sisters and honky-tonker Pokey LaFarge, artists who are steeped in the old-school sounds of country, rock, and blues.
