Manager Simon Still’s electrifying star, Ripley Graham, has emerged as the best-selling digital artist in music history. When Simon and his twenty-three year old intern Judd Nix are shot on the Grand Ole Opry stage during filming of a music video, no one is more upset than Ripley, since most assume the shots were meant for him. With Simon gravely wounded, Judd seeks help from Megan Olsen, Simon’s right hand and Ripley’s manager, as the two set off to discover the motive behind the shootings. Murder on Music Row navigates the twists and turns that connect Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and London in a behind-the-scenes look at an industry where there are no limits in the pursuit of money, power, and fame.

“Country music veteran Dill (he served as a personal manager for Minnie Pearl, Dwight Yoakam, and other greats) doesn’t miss a beat in this debut high-adrenaline thriller full of twists and turns.”

Starred Review

“Murder on Music Row is the best mystery written to date about how Nashville’s music industry really operates.”

Edward Morris

Foreword Reviews

“Murder On Music Row reads like the best novel that John Grisham never wrote. The story is downright compelling, making for an easy, page-turning read. The writing is so vivid and cinematic that it likely won’t be long before Murder on Music Row is optioned into a movie. Stuart Dill...leaves you very satisfied with how Murder on Music Row ends.”

Matt Bjorke

“Murder on Music Row: A Nashville Thriller has more twists and turns than a spring tornado in Tennessee. This book will have you diving under the covers – with a flashlight, of course. A terrific read.”
