"In their new book of photography, Sonya Jasinski and Kate York capture the off-stage lives of music makers and other Nashville stars. 'Nashville: Behind the Curtain' includes candid shots of Kacey Musgraves, Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams at home, backstage, in the studio and on the road, taken by London-based Jasinski and Nashville's York."

"It is fitting not only because it references those in-between, intimate moments – behind the scenes in their natural environment – that we see in these pictures, but because it sums up the pure and honest heart that still beats somewhere under Music Row’s business dollars. That after all the hits and the flashy cars and the celebrity limelight is gone, all anybody really wants is to make a great song that touches people. This book touched me, and reminded me of the magic that still fills my heart every time I think of that place."
— For the Country Record
