Vanderbilt students put a ‘Nashville’ twist on the alma mater

The Vanderbilt alma mater heard at every Commencement for more than a century celebrates the legacy and tradition of this honored university. But how do you make it cool?

How about giving it a little “Nashville” treatment!

Vanderbilt’s Blair School of Music choral director Tucker Biddlecombe partnered with Vanderbilt News and Communications‘ Zack Eagles and Amy Wolf and nearly 100 Vanderbilt students to put a fresh musical twist on this storied song.

Groups volunteering their time for this music video included members of several Vanderbilt choirs, an Americana/bluegrass band and classical sextet from Blair, the Melodores, and the BhangraDores dance troop.
