Naima moves to Nashville (aka Music City) to uncover secrets about an undiscovered music group. Naima, who got her love of music from her late grandmother, moves to Nashville to intern at a prestigious museum, while pursuing a PhD in ethnomusicology. At the museum, she meets Damian, a volunteer and music producer and feels immediate chemistry, but is focused on her work and finding a subject for her dissertation. Luckily, as she is looking into the backstory of some donated items, a beautiful vintage dress leads Naima to uncovering a mystery surrounding a classic hit and the perfect dissertation focus. As Naima and Damian develop a friendship, he works with her to investigate the secret surrounding the dress but they soon find that the truth hits closer to home than either of them realized.
