A documentary highlighting Nashville's famous music scene is set to air nationally on Sunday.

For the Love of Music: The Story of Nashville tells the city's story through the eyes of musicians, songwriters, producers and artists who use Music City as their inspiration.

Butch Spyridon, President for the Nashville Convention and Visitors Cooperation, said that with all the hype the city has been getting from ABC's hit show "Nashville," it's a good time to delve into the city's history.

"A great time to remind people how long we have been doing it, how well we have been doing it and how deep and wide this story really is," he explained.

Spyridon added the success Music City has had is built on its authenticity and creative nature.

The documentary features around 30 artists, including Kings of Leon, Eric Church and Kris Kristofferson.

Spyridon said it was mostly luck getting the artists that they did, and it was a tough decision.

"We think there is a volume two in our future. Timing, who is available and to make sure we covered the 130-year story. Little bit of everything involved," he said.

None of the people involved in the documentary were paid; they spoke from the heart.  

Spyridon said once they all realized what the documentary was about, it came easy.

It will air on ABC November 3 beginning at 2 p.m. local time.

After it airs, the documentary will be available view in it's entirety at
