THE CCM/KOHO ORIGINAL

These are the jerseys that truly define the years of the fledgling franchise, from the days unknowns and youngsters filled the roster up until the days Nashville fielded its first true stars.  The nature of a team still finding its identity is no less apparent in its uniforms, as customization in these years wasn't set in stone.  The years between 1999 and 2004 are full of quirks and history that we don't want to lose to the passage of time: home and away colors swapped, manufacturer tradeoffs, and more.  Here's some examples of what this time period had to offer.
