Two down and out cowboys wind up in Nashville and are mistaken for detectives. They are hired by the sister of a missing singer. Failed pilot episode with lots of Nashville cameos. Campy comedy/mystery.

Featuring Claude Atkins as Metro Nashville police lieutenant and Jerry Reed as his sidekick, this show features many country music personalities and is shot on location at various downtown Nashville sites as well as other locations (including Opryland). This show runs in the same vein as "CHIPs", "Hawaii Five-O", and other police/crime shows, only this one seems to center around the music community within Nashville. Nashville country artists of 1977 feature prominently in each one of these episodes.Written by

Offbeat little series
I remember watching Nashville 99 for the one season it was on while I was in high school. It was an interesting little mix. It starred Claude Atkins as a Nashville TN police detective, badge #99, hence the title. On the plus side Akins and the woman who played his mother had an excellent chemistry and were quite a hoot together and it was nice having a show set in the South and showing Southerners in a positive light. On the other hand, it was extraordinarily violent with shootouts every week that Columbian drug gangs would be proud of and the most god-awful title song (Jerry Reed, who I like, caterwauling "Nashville 99" over and over again) in TV history. Every week had an actual country music singer like Mel Tillis worked in as a guest star which was lame the first time they did it.
