1976 - Nashville Wraps Begins
Look at all the events that happened the year Nashville Wraps began!
1976 - "Maybe I'm Amazed" written by Paul McCartney and dedicated to his wife Linda, who had helped him get through the break-up of The Beatles, was released as a single from a live performance of the song during his 1976 Wings American tour. The song became a top-ten hit in the United States.
Red candies were eliminated in 1976 due to health concerns over the dye amaranth (FD Red #2), which was a suspected carcinogen. They were replaced with orange-colored candies. This was done despite the fact that M's did not contain the dye; the action was purely to satisfy worried consumers. Red candies were reintroduced later, but they also kept the orange colored M's.
