Nashville, Tennessee - the new Detroit?

Cheap energy, rising overseas wages and more innovation at home has led to manufacturing jobs being re-shored to the US.

The most growth has been in advanced industries - those that spend a lot on research and development (R&D) and have a large share of Stem workers, those skilled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The BBC's chief business correspondent Linda Yueh went to Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music, to find out why it's being called the new Detroit, Michigan.

Produced by Ashley Semler; Filmed and edited by Peter Murtaugh
