  24-Track Narrative?  Robert Altman's Nashville
The highest rank among diegetic sounds is accorded to sounds that contribute to the elaboration of narrative (primarily narrative-oriented sound effects and the principal characters' dialogue), while attention to characterization and style is evaluated somewhat less highly.
Sounds that serve primarily to enhance realism (incomprehensible dialogue, atmospheric sound effects) are considered to have the least importance of all diegetic sounds.
As sound technique is codified during the thirties, the potential of sound cinema is slowly reduced to the point where nearly all non-narrative uses of the medium are stripped from standard usage.

Yet, to many observers, the Bakersfield Sound is one of the dominant influences in country music today - an ironic twist of market-manufactured fate, considering the stylistic ocean that separated Nashville from Nashville West 35 years ago.
Nashville record producers of that era - people like Don Law of Columbia Records, Steve Sholes of RCA and Owen Bradley of Decca - had been heavily influenced by the Big Band sound of the previous decade, and in some cases they had helped mold that sound themselves.
Nashville reacted to Elvis’ resounding arrival on the American music scene by moving away from the rockabilly influences that had always loitered on its fringes.

 Living In Stereo » Blog Archive » The “Nashville Sound” Begins, Redux
A number one country, pop, and r&b hit in the fall of 1956, Elvis Presley’s “Don’t Be Cruel” was, arguably, the first instance of what would soon be termed the Nashville Sound.  At any rate, that’s the case I made here back in September.
Fair enough, though that places all of the emphasis on the adjective (Nashville) rather than on the noun in question (Sound) and also overlooks that key Nashville Sound musicians–Chet Atkins and the Jordanaires–were intimately involved in making it.
The Martin and Ford records were both on Capitol (a heretofore unremarked upon Nashville Sound antecedent), and all three were crooned easily above rhythm beds that are insistently swinging but still gentle, even minamalist–a strummed guitar, brushes, finger snaps.

She documents this musical and cultural transition in a chapter focusing on the remarkable recording career of Nashville Sound artist Patsy Cline, the artist who most fully embodies these tensions.
Thus, although the Nashville Sound was a great commercial success, it was bitterly criticized by some fans and musicians as having "sold out" its "country-ness," its authenticity.
Yet Jensen also points out the irony that, as time passes and the sixties heyday of the Nashville Sound slips farther and farther into the past, the Nashville Sound itself has become accepted more and more by audiences and performers alike as being "authentic" country music.
