Biography

Nashville West was a short-lived American country music and rock quartet that was briefly together in the late 1960s. The group comprised multi-instrumentalist Gene Parsons, guitarist Clarence White, singer-guitarist-fiddler Gib Guilbeau and bassist Wayne Moore. Parsons and White left the band to join The Byrds while Guilbeau later joined The Flying Burrito Brothers.

Along with The International Submarine Band, The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Nashville West was among the pioneering groups of the country rock genre.

An album by Nashville West was released in 1976, about eight years after the band had broken up. The material on the Nashville West album was recorded during a club date in 1968.

Formation

In the mid-1960s, Gene Parsons and fiddler Gib Guilbeau, who had been earlier acquainted from their time together in a band called The Castaways, were hired for a recording session with The Gosdin Brothers’ singing duo of Vern and Rex Gosdin. The session, being produced by The Byrds’ Chris Hillman, included guitarist Clarence White, who had formerly played with a bluegrass band called The Kentucky Colonels. Parsons, Guilbeau and White then went on to play on sessions together for several other country music artists and became the house band for Gary S. Paxton’s record label, Bakersfield International Productions.
