"Nashville on the Road" was a country music variety series taped at various locations throughout North America.

The Season One regulars were Jim Ed Brown, Jerry Clower, The Cates Sisters, and The Gems.
Young banjo player Wendy Holcombe was as a semi-regular during the series first three seasons. She became a regular cast member around Season Four.

Air dates:
Whenever possible, we will try to list the earliest known air date for each episode.
As with other syndicated TV shows from this era, there are no standard air dates for episodes of "Nashville on the Road."
This is due to the way that the episodes were distributed to the local TV stations. Instead of receiving the show via satellite, local stations were sent videotape copies.
And following the broadcast of an episode, the videotape would be forwarded, or "bicycled," to another station. Because of this, each episode's air date varied by city.

On this guide, Seasons 1 through 3 are arranged according to the production code numbers.
Episodes 4.01 through 4.11 are also arranged by production code.
Episodes 4.12 through 4.26 are arranged by the location where the episodes were taped.
Seasons 5 - 8: Episodes are arranged by air date and/or the taping location.
