Deep Purple

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band shifted its sound to hard rock in 1970, and in 2013 began exploring progressive metal. Deep Purple, together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-Seventies". They were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band" for a 1972 concert at London's Rainbow Theatre, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 8.5 million certified units in the US.

Watkins Family Hour ft. Sean Watkins & Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek with Special Guests

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

For singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalists Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins, the Watkins Family Hour has long been an oasis from the rigors of the road, a laboratory where they can try out new material or master beloved cover songs. Their monthly show at L.A.’s famed venue Largo has been hailed as a convivial, communal event where they welcome an impressive array of musician friends old and new. While it’s true that fans who aren’t lucky enough to be in L.A. and score a coveted ticket can check out the proceedings via youtube or on the podcasts the Watkins siblings have created, the fun of these evenings is really in being there as the unscripted show unfolds. The Watkins Family Hour is always full of surprises, unexpected guests, one-of-a-kind match-ups; serendipity plays as much of a role as virtuosity. Fiona Apple often joins them, and recent guests have included Dawes, Jackson Browne, Nikka Costa, Booker T. and actor-singer John C. Reilly, as well as comedians Paul F. Tompkins, Nick Kroll and Pete Holmes.

Now Sara and Sean have decided to take their Family Hour format on the road — a kind of musical pop-up shop, if you will — to clubs and concert halls around the country. And to mark this undertaking, this summer they are releasing the first-ever Watkins Family Hour LP on their own Family Hour Records imprint. The album, recorded live over three days in the studio of their friend and producer-engineer Sheldon Gomberg, beautifully captures the freewheeling spirit of the shows. It features Apple and the stellar players who have become a de facto house band: drummer Don Heffington, pedal steel and dobro player Greg Leisz, bassist Sebastian Steinberg, and keyboardist Benmont Tench, each of whom take a vocal turn at the mic. The Watkins Family Hour is an all-covers affair; tracks include Sara doing Lindsey Buckingham’s “Steal Your Heart Away,” Sean essaying Roger Miller’s wistful “Not In Nottingham,” from Disney’s 1973 animated Robin Hood, and Apple singing “Where I Ought To Be,” originally performed by Skeeter Davis.

On tour, the Watkinses plan to make every venue they visit a home away from home. In each town, they’ll extend an invitation to the many artists they’ve befriended over the years — through their touring in Nickel Creek, as solo artists, and as frequent collaborators with other like-minded musicians from the worlds of bluegrass, folk, country and rock.

Nashville Sunday Night | Jackie Greene

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Win tickets in Nashville and Middle Tennessee courtesy NowPlayingNashville.com

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.

Back to Birth - Greene's seventh album and his Yep Roc Records debut - is more than worthy of some serious attention. The 11-song set showcases the multitalented artist's uncanny knack for synthesizing his deep affinity for American roots styles into timeless, personally-charged music. Armed with a persuasive voice, a vivid songwriting skill and an instinctive mastery of several instruments, Greene has carved out a unique musical niche, and the album marks another creative landmark in his already compelling body of work.

Produced by Los Lobos member and frequent Greene collaborator Steve Berlin, Back to Birth underlines Greene's remarkable evolution as a performer and writer. With such new compositions as "Silver Lining," "Trust Somebody," "Now I Can See For Miles," and the stirring title track, the artist's distinctive melodic sensibility is matched with thoughtful, introspective lyrics that confront some profound philosophical issues with plainspoken eloquence.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Rodney Perry

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Warm and friendly is how you feel once you greet the welcoming smile of comedian Rodney Perry in person, and after only minutes of being in his presence the smiles turn to hearty laughter as his gift is to entertain. Born in Chicago and raised in Monroe Louisiana, the road to stardom has not always been paved with fun and laughs. But whatever his surroundings Perry has always used comedy to pave his way to success.

Rodney served his country for eight years as a member of the United States Navy. Serving two tours of duty took Rodney to New Orleans and to the Bay Area, which prepared him for the entertainment industry and for life. He would perform his duties as Yeoman Second Class by day and perform his sidesplitting comedy shows by night. Perry came to a crossroad in 1998, when he had to choose between continuing his Navy career or making Stand-Up Comedy a career. He chose the latter. Rodney, his wife and their children packed their things and headed to Hollywood. Actually, Inglewood.

Upon exiting the Navy, Perry was thrust into the work force. Comedy was not paying the bills, yet. Perry did it all. Apartment Manager, Secretary, Data Entry Clerk, Temporary Employee for a Modeling Agency and the list goes on and on. He did all the things that a budding young comedian does. Everything, except the Comedy career that he had moved to Los Angeles for. All that changed during a temporary assignment at the Veterans Administration. During his week at the VA Rodney befriended an amputee. One day he asked Perry; “What are you doing here?” and “Why aren’t you doing what you were set on this earth to do?” That was the wake-up call he needed. Rodney began doing any and everything in the world of comedy. He was an audience warm-up, a radio personality, a writer, and mostly a full fledged Professional Stand-Up Comedian.

Patrick Adams: In Two Worlds

Presented by The Red Arrow Gallery at The Red Arrow Gallery

The Red Arrow Gallery welcomes Lexington, KY artist Patrick Adams, opening In Two Worlds, on Saturday July 11th, 2015 in conjunction with the Second Saturday Eastside Art Stumble.

Not a stranger to the Nashville Art Scene, however five years since his last solo exhibtion in our fair city, Patrick Adams returns with a new body of work entitled In Two Worlds.  His aim, to use the landscape as a metaphor for art’s role in unifying the human experience of the physical and spiritual worlds by eliminating the arbitrary position of the horizon and attempting to create a strict equivalency between the land and sky.

Drawing influence from many 19th and 20th century artists including Jean-Baptiste Corot who first brought his attention to considering the landscape as a subject, Adams also credits Richard Diebenkorn for his structure and working with the landscape to take it beyond just being picturesque. 

With an oil pallette of warm yet muted colors, Patrick’s new series of diptych’s show the lower half (earth), representing the physical realm, and the upper half (sky, the ‘heavens’) representing the metaphysical, or spiritual realm bringing the two worlds together in a way that makes both worlds more visable.

Patrick Adams was both in Worthington, Minnesota and earned his MFA at the University of Kentucky.   Adams work graces multiple personal and corporate collections from Nashville and across the east to west coast.  This is his first solo show with The Red Arrow Gallery.

A Bright New Boise by Samuel D. Hunter

Presented by Spaghetti Theatre at Channel To Channel

In the bleak, corporate break room of a craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby, not only for employment, but also to rekindle a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenage son, whom he gave up for adoption several years ago. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's A Bright New Boise is a earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith.

CURRENT CHURCH-STATE ISSUES by CLIFF FIEDLER

Presented by Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Congregation

Elections, Christian fundamentalists and the Koch brothers.
When religion is used to harm others.
Disobeying laws and calling it religious liberty.

Hear CLIFF FIEDLER deal with current hot issues involving religious liberty during the 11 am Sunday service August 2, 2015, at Greater Nashville Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 374 Hicks Road in Bellevue.  

Mr. Fiedler is President of Nashville Chapter Americans United for Separation of Church and State and hosts the radio program, "Church and State Today," at 3 pm weekly on Radio Free Nashville (103.7 or 107.1).

Topics of concern are: Church Politicking, Defending The Courts, "Faith-Based" Initiatives, Freedom Of Religion, Government-Sponsored Religion, Marriage And Sexuality, Religion In Public Schools, Religious School Vouchers.

Church Politicking
As tax-exempt entities, houses of worship may not intervene in partisan politics by endorsing or
opposing candidates. Pulpit-based electioneering not only violates federal law, many believe it
corrupts the true mission of our faith communities. 

Defending The Courts
Federal courts are often our last line of defense to protect our constitutional rights. Federal
judges should respect our Constitution and appreciate the important role that church-state
separation has played in safeguarding religious liberty.

"Faith-Based" Initiatives
The so-called "faith-based" initiative is a euphemism for taxpayer-supported religion. The
initiative funnels taxpayer dollars to religious social service providers without adequate
safeguards to prevent proselytism. In addition, these groups seek to discriminate in hiring based
on religion even though their programs are publicly funded. 

Freedom Of Religion
The right to practice your chosen faith is cherished by the American people. A division between
church and state ensures this right by freeing religion from obtrusive government interference.
Government must show a compelling interest before restricting religious exercise. 

Government-Sponsored Religion
The Constitution bars government from meddling in religion. Government should be neutral on
theological matters and not seek to sponsor, promote or further faith. 

Marriage And Sexuality
Religious groups take widely varying stands on issues such as marriage and human sexuality. It
is imperative that the government respect American diversity by not imposing one tradition's
narrow view of marriage and sexuality on the entire country. 

Religion In Public Schools
Public schools serve children from a variety of religious and philosophical backgrounds. The
classroom is an inappropriate place for school-sponsored worship. School officials should not
prescribe prayers or TEACH religious doctrines, such as creationism, in the classroom.   (This
does not eliminate discussion about any subjects.)

Religious School Vouchers
Americans have the right to support only the religious groups of their choosing. Vouchers and
other forms of government aid to religious schools usurp this privilege by forcing all taxpayers
to subsidize indoctrination. Religious organizations are free to sponsor schools, but they should
be responsible for their upkeep.

The Reincarnation Question - Liah Kraft-Kristaine

Presented by Center for Spiritual Living Nashville at Center for Spiritual Living Nashville

Liah Kraft-Kristaine, a metaphysical studies expert who has authored numerous books and appeared as a guest expert on the "Oprah Winfrey Show", will lead a workshop from 1-3 p.m. Aug. 2 (Sunday) at the Center for Spiritual Living Nashville, 6705 Charlotte Pike in west Nashville.  "The Reincarnation Question" will explore the premise of Edgar Cayce, Albert Einstein, Walt Whitman and others that no major human relationship is the result of chance. The author/speaker, who has also appeared on CNN and PBS, will cover world philosophies; the principles of Karma (action and reaction); past lives, the law of grace; attraction, marriage and divorce; families of origin and birth issues; other lives and between lives; and life's purpose. Admission is free (a love offering will be taken). "The Bible makes reference to reincarnation, and many of the early Christian fathers wrote and taught the concepts of reincarnation," the author/speaker said. "We plan to explore some fascinating ideas that may alter lives in magnificent ways, as individuals give thought to their own possible pasts and missions now." Kraft-Kristaine has helped thousands of people understand and use the laws of the Universe to quantum leap their lives. For almost 25 years, she has taught metaphysical studies around the world and trained employees for corporations and associations. Known as the “Quantum Queen”, Kraft-Kristaine has served as a Hollywood television writer, a CNN commentator, a guest expert on the "Oprah Winfrey Show", and a Random House author.  She serves as executive director of the LifeKraft Institute.  For more information about the workshop, call CSLN at (615) 356-0174 or visit www.CSLNashville.org.

The Sweeplings with Paul McDonald

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

What began as a casual night at home with the TV on…became so much more. America’s Got Talent moved from simply being background noise when a female singer caused Whitney’s wife Bethany to pause the show and bring her husband in to watch. Cami’s audition. “That’s who you need to write with.” A simple statement proposed by Bethany. A long shot? Maybe. But a few FB messages and a few tweets…quickly evolved into a flight to Washington state to explore the possible creative collaboration between Cami and Whitney. 3 days…8 songs later…the creative connection was evident. Next, a trip to Alabama. 2nd time together as a duo. 3 more songs added to their catalog and a sold out concert finishing out the trip. With only 6 days actually spent in the same room… all the songs, videos and photos viewed are a result. A duo strengthened by the production and marketing efforts of Bethany (Whitney’s wife) and Eric (Cami’s husband). Living on opposite ends of the country certainly has it’s challenges, but they continue to trade work back and forth between emails and Skype conversations. Somehow…it works. Two artists on opposite ends of the US morphed into this amazing musical duo. Who would have guessed?

Tom Hurst Presents "Loud Jamz"

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Beginning August 3 at Douglas Corner in Nashville, Tom Hurst is bringing back the Loud Jamz! [DOUGLAS CORNER] With a custom-built house band that will use a variety of instrumentalists and vocalists with a broad range of featured guests, this will be a players jam without high tech assistance. Skilled musicians who know their craft, and aren’t afraid to put the creative pedal to the metal, will turn up the volume and the musicianship to challenge themselves and entertain what is sure to be a packed house. Drawing predominantly from a master repertoire of songs that cover all genres across the musical spectrum, the goal is to bring out the soul in the music and the player in a way that incites a riot of movement. Technologically, this will be no pedestrian ensemble of sound. 

The format of the show will feature four distinct musical sections. Beginning at 8pm until 8:40, the house band will play roughly seven songs. From 8:50 to 9:30, an established group or artist will perform a six to seven song set. The house band will return from 9:40 to 10:30 to play another seven or eight songs, and from 10:20 to 11pm, the show will end with an open jam. With just two ten-minute intermissions, this is nearly three hours of an eclectic set list you won’t find anywhere else. The first show, set for August 3, will open with a three song jazz set by Belmont vocal professor, Stephanie Adlington. Following her, the house band will perform six songs ranging from British rock icon, Genesis, to a short-lived heavy metal band from San Francisco, T-Ride. Cosmifunkpop band, Flat Land, will play a 50-minute set, followed by the return of the house band for five songs that cover Big Wreck, Audioslave, Crash Kings, and Stereophonics. How the songs are interpreted will be in the hands of the players.

Rocky Votolato & Dave Hause with Special Guest Chris Farren

Presented by The High Watt at The High Watt

For Dave Hause the American dream is a broken promise, a childhood ideal that has been shattered by the reality of the past two decades. On the musician’s second solo album, Devour, Hause scours the foundation of that crumbled dream in an attempt to discover how everything we believed growing up could have turned out so differently. The album, initially written to become the third record from Hause’s rock band The Loved Ones, follows his 2011 solo debut Resolutions, a disc that allowed the musician to understand his potential as his own artist.

As Hause, a Philadelphia native, began penning new music for a new album from The Loved Ones, it became clear that the group, who had taken a break after their second album, had stalled. These songs, however, which showcased a clear thematic journey, were meant to be vocalized by Hause and over the past few years he transformed them into Devour. Hause solidified the album’s sequence before even going into the studio, aiming to craft a narrative arc that drove the album from its dark, heavy first half into a lighter, more hopeful tone. A thematic line of melody runs through the songs, reflecting the overarching ideas in the music itself. The disc explores the heartbreak of shattered childhood promises of a better world and concludes with optimistic hope.

Kasey Chambers

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

More so than ever before, Kasey Chambers is writing like a true storyteller. On her new album, her 7th, the unrequited, antiquated refrains of 'Oh Grace’ are sung as a man yearning his one true love. Likewise the broken-hearted nostalgia of ‘Bittersweet’ captures the story of two old lovers from both sides. Even ‘Stalker’ sees Kasey shedding her skin and imagining prowling after the fictional Spencer Reid, the socially-awkward genius from Criminal Minds. 

But despite finding new ways to craft her stories, Kasey Chambers is still inimitably her. From the red dust of her nomadic childhood to the surf coast where she’s raised her family, Kasey’s always maintained that her records have been a testament to “who [she] was at the time”. And her newest album is proof that she’s unwilling to settle for anything less.

Salon@615: Paula McLain (author of The Paris Wife), Circling the Sun

Presented by Nashville Public Library at Nashville Public Library - Main Library

Paula McLain received an MFA in poetry from the University of Michigan and has been a resident of Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony. She is the author of two collections of poetry, as well as a memoir, Like Family, and a first novel, A Ticket to Ride. Her novel The Paris Wife, a fictionalized account of Ernest Hemingway's first marriage, was a long-time New York Times bestseller. She lives in Cleveland with her family.

Circling the Sun is about the remarkable Beryl Markham. The world is 1920’s Kenya, where a glamorous and decadent circle of British expats have carved out a toe-hold of civilization at the edge of the boundless frontier. Abandoned by her mother and inspired by the dangerous beauty around her, Beryl grows into a fierce young woman driven to prove her courage and win independence at any cost. She becomes the first woman to earn her license as a professional racehorse trainer (at eighteen!); one of the very first people in Africa, and the world, to have a commercial pilot’s license; and the first bush pilot to successfully scout game from the air for safari hunters under impossibly dangerous circumstances.



08/04/15

This salon is a free, ticketed event. A limited number of auditorium tickets will be available on-site 30 minutes before show time on the event date. Advance auditorium tickets are limited and guarantee a seat in the auditorium.

Arrive early for the on-site ticket line. Once auditorium seats have been filled, guests will be accommodated in alternative viewing locations.

To join the signing line at this event, you must purchase a copy of the author’s latest book from Parnassus Books. As a Salon patron, you will receive a 10% discount! View event description for information.

Jamie xx

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Towards the end of his last tour of North and South America with The xx, the pop trio's sonic and rhythmic heartbeat Jamie was pinged a YouTube clip from a friend in London. He was suffering a bout of homesickness. Intermittently, it can get to him. So when he eventually got round to clicking on Mark Leckey's Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, it was as if a hand was wrapping around his shoulder, reminding him of everything he holds dear and romantic about the margins of the national dancefloor that interest him most, back home. "I became obsessed with it," he says. Leckey's 14.45m video montage from 1999 cuts directly at the intersection between the flippancy and seriousness, the beauty and lunacy of British dance music culture, its timeline travelling from the working class theatrics of Northern Soul through the wide-eyed euphoria of acid house.

Jill Scott with Lecrae and BJ The Chicago Kid

Presented by Live Nation at Ascend Amphitheater

She is an artist with an abiding, deep commitment to lyrical honesty and musical integrity. Simply put, if Jill Scott feels it, she writes and sings it. While vivid imagery, metaphor analogy are her stock in trade, there’s no pretense, no hiding. She’s upfront, in-your-face always real, using her own distinctive poetry to breathe life into words, digging inside to bring forth the accompanying emotion. It is that authenticity that has endeared Jill Scott to everyday music buyers who hear what she’s saying through her music and respond according. Folks who know the rough and tumble of life, love right, love wrong, passion misspent, passion fulfilled, lonely nights and empty days and everything in between declare, ‘Yeah, girl!,’ ‘Go ‘head on!’ and ‘I feel ya’. And in the tradition of the four albums that precede it, THE REAL THING is another cause for celebration for those who live for the real.

An Evening with Lisa Lambe

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

The Sutler Saloon is delighted to announce the debut U.S. performance of Irish singer and former Celtic Woman Lisa Lambe’s new album "Hiding Away".  

Released in Ireland to great acclaim in early spring, the album was recorded here in Nashville with some of country music's finest musicians. An acoustic folk album with beautiful touches of country, the album’s intimacy is a showcase for Lambe's remarkable voice and captures a singer whose rare instinct for interpretation always serves the song.  

Following a sell out Irish tour we are delighted to have Lisa debut her music back in Nashville where it was all created. 

Lambe’s voice and music lend themselves to a perfect recreation in a live setting  and so the intimate surroundings of the (legendary) Sutler Saloon will be the perfect backdrop to a night of beautiful music.

Eric Hunter

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Eric Hunter has been performing comedy since the age of 6, when he got his very first laugh at a family picnic. His grandmother scolded him for not eating all of his dinner. “There are starving children in third world countries who would love to eat that,” she said. “Here, send it to them,” came his reply and upon hearing his cousins’ laughter, he knew comedy was the life for him! Eric now performs non-stop around the country leaving his mark as a clean, funny, bright, friendly and original performer. He jokes sarcastically about various topics, including his friends and Irish Catholic family, education, sports and relationships. He’s best known for his hilarious, deadpan attempt to impress the women in the audience. In cities like New York, Miami, Honolulu, LA, Las Vegas, and Prestonburg, KY (and everywhere in between), Eric has performed with a wide range of comedians, including Louie Anderson at the Comedy Store in L.A., Brian Regan, Jake Johannsen, Ray Romano, Blake Clark, Kevin Nealon, Bobcat Goldthwaite, Kevin Pollak, Frank Caliendo, Nick DiPaolo, Wendy Liebman, John Witherspoon, Todd Glass, John Pinette, Dave Coulier, Adam Ferarra, Pablo Francisco, Robert Wuhl, Jim Brogan, Bob Zany, Etta May, Henry Cho, Heath Hyche, Jimmy Walker, Michael Roof and Dennis Regan. (When he was a kid, he got autographs from Leno and Seinfeld.) In 2008, he appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and in 2010 on “William Shatner’s Aftermath”. He was a semi-finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival in ’08 and at The New York Comedy Contest in ’09 and ‘10. In October, 2006, LA Weekly listed Eric in its “Some Of The Funniest Comedians In America” section. You can see Eric perform on the Comedy Time Network. He’s made multiple appearances on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show and on their TV show on WGN. You can also hear him on SiriusXM satellite radio.

The Jack Pearson Band

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Former guitarist with The Allman Brothers Band, Jack Pearson has been playing professionally since the age of 15. Although he may be best known as an A-list blues/rock lead and slide guitarist, Jack is also a soulful, creative songwriter, producer and artist in his own right.

As a songwriter and solo artist, his songs are moving and honest while his grooves make it hard to sit still for very long. Jack’s lyrics often reflect hope and redemption, reminding the listener never to give up no matter how heavy their burdens. His lyrical and musical hooks have also led to cuts by other artists.

Adept at many musical genres and instruments, he possesses the ability to take each to a higher level. His playing is sophisticated while full of intensity and passion, leaving audiences cheering and musicians smiling - shaking their heads in disbelief at his seemingly effortless skill and talent. Blues Revue calls him a “world-class guitarist” and Rolling Stone brags on his “light touch and fluid, jazzy style…dynamic slide playing”.

Lightning 100 presents My Morning Jacket with Moon Taxi

Presented by Lightning 100 at Ascend Amphitheater

My Morning Jacket formed at the tail-end of the 1990s, when Jim James’ group Month Of Sundays folded, and he began recording new songs with ex-members of local rockers Winter Death Club. At Above The Cadillac Studios – in reality, a shed on the grounds of guitarist Johnny Quaid’s grandparents’ farm – the group took shape, drawing upon their rich knowledge of classic rock, country, soul and psychedelia, and spinning these influences into fresh, life-affirming rock’n’roll and aching, haunting balladry. My Morning Jacket made their early reputation off the three sublime albums they recorded at Above The Cadillac – 1999’s The Tennessee Fire, 2001’s At Dawn and 2003’s It Still Moves – and legendary live shows that proved here was a truly magical group for the ages. It Still Moves marked a move to the major labels for the group, while its heavy touring cycle prompted the amicable exit of Quaid and keyboardist Danny Cash from the ranks..

Live on The Sutler Stage | Adam Faucett

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

Live on The Sutler Stage presents Adam Faucett!

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding. Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date. Faucett began performing solo in 2006 when the demise of Russellville, AR band Taught the Rabbits pushed him toward Chicago.

Heems with Spank Rock

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Heems: Punjabi-American rapper, founder of Greedhead Music, and native New Yorker, Himanshu "Heems" Suri launched his solo career while a member of alternative hip-hop group Das Racist. In 2012 under rap name Heems, he released two solo mixtapes, Nehru Jackets and Wild Water Kingdom. After Das Racist split in late 2012, Heems headed to Bombay and began work on his official debut solo effort. The album was released in in 2015 and coincided with an exhibition of the rapper's artwork at the Aicon Gallery in New York City. Both the LP and the exhibition shared the same title, Eat Pray Thug.

Spank Rock: Baltimore native Naeem Juwan, a.k.a Spank Rock, rose to fame in Philadelphia with the Diplo-helmed Hollertronix crew and began crafting the type of live performances that became underground legend in the early 2000s. With production partner Alex "XXXChange" Epton, Juwan melded Bmore club, Miami booty bass, and underground rap influences into the seminal LP 'YoYoYoYoYo' on UK label Big Dada in 2006, an album cited by many fans and critics as a progenitor of the dance/rap hybrid genres that have spread worldwide over the past decade.

The Saturns

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

The Saturns are fronted by Nashville-native Sam Hunter. Growing up around many facets of the music industry, Sam played his first live show at age 9 and got his first recording gig at age 11. Ever since, Sam hasn’t looked back. Today, Sam’s creative stardom is quickly rising as a musician, with guitar and bass as his particular weapons of choice. Sam’s guitar playing rivals that of the slick rhythms of Bobby Womack and the finesse of Johnn Watson, yet is superbly original. Sam has been featured on T.V. (Fox 17 The Good Guys) and on nationally syndicated radio shows (Coast to Coast AM). Sam’s incredibly talent has put him in the studio or on stage with greats such as Rob Galbraith, Chester Thompson, Bob Babbitt, Reggie Young, and Bruce Dees. In short, Sam is a truly talented player, with a keen musical ear and rare structural knack. The Saturns are completed by bassist Luke Easterling and drummer Austin Valentine.

Braid

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Sometimes, it takes more than one attempt to get things right. Take a look at Braid—the revered Illinois indie-rock band widely considered by many as a pillar of second-wave emo, along with similarly influential acts like the Get Up Kids, the Promise Ring and Jimmy Eat World. But Braid were different; their albums were less overtly poppy and more urgent and frantic than their contemporaries, built on the off-kilter interplay between co-frontmen Bob Nanna and Chris Broach. It was this ever-present tension that drove the band apart barely a year after their genre-defining album Frame & Canvas, with Braid coming to an end in August 1999, right on the cusp of emo breaking through to the mainstream. But with time comes perspective, and in 2010, the band eventually rediscovered not only their passion for their old music, but their desire to create something new.

An Evening with Amanda Shires

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Just in case the title alone wasn’t a dead give away, Amanda Shires’ Down Fell the Doves is not a record for the faint of heart, faith or spirit. Not that anyone who heard her last album would have expected such. Carrying Lighting, the critically acclaimed 2011 breakthrough that put Shires on the map as one of Americana music’s most arresting new voices (and Texas Music magazine’s 2011 Artist of the Year), was a kudzu-tangled web of frayed heartstrings and combustible desire that revealed the one-time “little fiddle player from Lubbock” to be a grown woman unafraid to “get wrecked in love” and dish out the same with keen poetic insight and unnervingly mature, femme-fatale conviction. But as striking as Lightning was, Down Fell the Doves (Shires’ debut for Lightning Rod Records) is where the gloves really come off.

“There’s a lot of destruction on this record,” says Shires, the observation coming a thoughtful pause after her somewhat casual dismissal of the album’s “Box Cutters” — a disturbingly beautiful suicidal daydream — as just being “a little bit of dark humor.”

“I wrote that one in a haze of delirious exhaustion,” she says of the song that imagines, amongst other possible exit strategies, the sweet surrender of “a rose-petaled, eyes-closed collapse” in a warm blood bath.

Maybe you just had to be there.

“I don’t know,” Shires concedes with a disarming, self-effacing chuckle, her lilting West Texas drawl as yet unbowed by years of living in Nashville and nonstop touring. “I always hate giving things away, because I like it when people can hear a song and make their own stories. But I believe in that old saying, ‘What happens in the dark comes to light.’ In order to create something, you’ve got to destroy something: You can’t have good without bad, you can’t have life without death or growth without decay. And with everything that happens, you’re learning something; I think that in this record I realized how much of learning and life experience is relearning. And there’s beauty in that. So although there’s a lot of destruction and things falling apart on the album, there’s also rebuilding going on. I think even in the darkest material there’s an inkling of hope.”

She addresses that theme directly in arguably the album’s most gorgeously bittersweet track, “The Drop and Lift.” Elsewhere, it’s left to the listener to gleam whatever hope one can from the likes of “Box Cutters” and “Deep Dark Below” — a somber meditation on the nature of evil (“Monsters are men that the devil gets in … it’s usually the weak ones he finds”). Ditto the equally unsettling, relationship-haunting demons stirred in “Devastate” and “If I” (the latter of which asks, with chilling frankness, “If I were to break a promise that I made … would you really want me to come clean?”). In the album-closing “The Garden,” a striking still life of an ill-fated love gone to seed, the titular doves drop “gray-eyed and flightless” like a hard rain of fallen angels, littering the ground like spoiled fruit and jagged shards of broken heart and innocence. 

Juxtaposing that at times overwhelmingly grim emotional terrain, though, are songs that deliver just enough light to keep the shadows themselves on edge. Noting that “all of the songs are reflective of what I’ve been doing the last two years,” Shires — who was married in early 2013 to fellow singer-songwriter Jason Isbell (with none other than Todd Snider conducting the nuptials) — coos unashamedly when asked about the tender-hearted “Stay.” “Oh, that’s a cute one,” she gushes playfully. “Pretty sappy, huh?” And then there’s the flirty but reverent “A Song for Leonard Cohen,” in which she fantasizes about “comparing mythologies” with her favorite songwriter over a drink or 12.

“I wrote it as an exercise on his birthday,” says Shires, who has a verse from Cohen’s “Hallelujah” tattooed on her forearm. “But I did not write it in hopes that he would hear it, In fact, if I had thought there’d ever be a chance in hell of him actually hearing it, I never would have written it, because that would be mortifying. But I admire and respect him so much, and that would be my dream encounter with him. Dreaming is a safe way to have fun.”

Elsewhere on Down Fell the Doves, Shires dreams of being not only “careless, weightless and free,” but blessed/cursed with the ability to “see through everything” (“Look Like a Bird”) and, just for kicks, impervious to bullets, hatchets, hand grenades and “all the ways that words cut through/against promises breaking into open wounds” (“Bulletproof.”) 

“Wouldn’t that be cool?” she asks. “I was playing a show in Tampa, Fla., and this guy named Tiger Bill showed up to the merch table with this bag with tufts of hair and claws and stuff in it — including this Siberian tiger claw. And I was like, ‘Well thank you for this bag of crazy parts,’ because I don’t know — with gifts, it’s rude not to be gracious, right? But he said that he took care of animals and no tigers were hurt — they shed their claws. And then he went, ‘Seriously, you have to hang onto the tiger claw. They say in China that they make you invincible.’”

She wrote the song the following day — and still keeps said tiger claw handy … just in case. “But I don’t need anybody testing it out or anything,” she says.

When it came time to capture magic in the studio, though, the only good luck totems Shires relied upon were her trusty fiddle (and ukulele) and well over half a lifetime’s worth of firsthand playing and recording experience — augmented by the decades more brought by guitarist Isbell, bassist Jimbo Hart, drummer Chad Gamble and producer Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, R.E.M.). The album was recorded at LeMaster’s Chase Park Transduction studio in Athens, Ga.

“I like a lot of the records Andy’s worked on, which is how we met,” Shires says. “And Chad and Jimbo are both from Jason’s band, so it was mostly a group of people that I had already developed a rapport with. But this was the first record I’ve made where I really let the producer ultimately make the call of how things were going to go. I brought demos in — which was another first for me — but I just left a lot of stuff up to Andy, which worked well because we had a lot of the same ideas.”

Though not without its share of mood-enhancing embellishments, like the horns on “Stay” arranged by Shires and trombonist Chad Fisher, the sonic landscape of Down Fell the Doves is as haunted and provocative as Shires’ lyrics and melodies. Not to mention as rich with compelling contrasts, with the scrape and howl of Isbell’s guitars offsetting and perfectly complementing the delicate “drop and lift” of Shires’ quavering vibrato and almost supernaturally expressive violin — an instrument that, just like the devil’s in “Deep Dark Below,” “sounds like your deepest desire, lonely and bruised getting over being used.”

“It’s a lonesome instrument,” marvels Shires, who picked up her first violin at age 10, played Western swing music all through her teens (with the legendary Texas Playboys, no less) and continues to find new and interesting sounds on the versatile instrument that surprise even her. “I like the ways you can make it sound like wind, or fire, or … like wild. And I like that it can also be pretty.

“But that’s not me,” she hastens to add with characteristic humility. “That’s the fiddle, because they’ve got their own minds. I just follow mine around and make sure it stays in one piece.”

5th Annual Bootlegger's Bash

Presented by Carnton Plantation & Battlefield at Carnton Plantation & Battlefield

Save the date! The 2015 Bootlegger's Bash will be held August 8th! Inspired by Williamson County’s unique history of bootlegging, the Bootlegger’s Bash is an event which attracts a fun crowd. This casual evening at Carnton Plantation will give guests the opportunity to taste local whiskeys, enjoy a delicious Southern supper, and be entertained by a lively band.

Last year's Annual Bootlegger’s Bash at Carnton Plantation was an event to remember! The evening started with a moonshine tasting, provided by Tenn South Distillery, featuring blackberry, apple pie, and peach flavored shine. The event was set under the stars in the garden corral with Carnton providing the perfect backdrop. McConnell’s Catering Inc. catered their famous pig roast with traditional Southern sides and everyone’s favorite dessert, blackberry and peach cobbler.  The evening was topped off with old-time country music provided by Senator Jack Johnson and his band, The Austin Brothers.

The 2015 Bootlegger's Bash will be held August 8th!

Dome Club Nashville - Wish You Were Here

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Adventure Science Center

Dome Club Nashville is is a monthly event showcasing immersive programs and artistic experiences designed to envelop visitors within the unique fulldome planetarium environment.

What’s fulldome? Fulldome refers to technologies that cover the entire surface area of a planetarium dome with graphics. Seated within the 63-foot diameter dome at the Sudekum Planetarium’s Judith Payne Turner Theatre, viewers are surrounded by visuals in front, above, and even behind them. Unlike the rectangular frame of a TV or movie screen, the dome allows visitors to feel like they’re part of the show. Powerful surround sound adds to the effect as well, creating an eye-opening viewing experience.

August 8 Wish You Were Here

Experience this acclaimed 1975 album like never before – enriched with fulldome psychedelic effects. Sit back and watch as this music and light show interprets this classic album with a mesmerizing and immersive abstract visual environment.

Crystal Shawanda

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

With Native American blood pumping through her veins, Crystal Sawanda’s rhythmic roots run deep. Music came naturally to Crystal, as, in Native American culture, music is everything — history, dance, remembrance, forgetting, mourning, and celebration. Crystal was born on Wikweminkong (meaning Bay of Beavers) Native Reservation, on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. As she grew, Crystal was immersed in all musical styles, but Country struck a special chord within her. She discovered Nashville at the age of 12, and then returned a year later to record her first album, all of the songs being written by her. Over the next several years, Crystal recorded three more independent albums, traveled back and forth to Nashville, perfected her craft, and finally got a full-time gig at the famous Tootie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway, where she met and shared a stage with her husband, Dwayne Strobel, for six years. While at Tootsie’s Crystal began to work with Scott Hendricks (Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn), and in 2007 Joe Galante signed Crystal to RCA Records/Sony Music Nashville. Her first single, “You Can Let Go,” was the fastest rising single in Canadian BDS history, reaching Top 5 in Canada and Top 20 in the U.S. Her debut album, Dawn of a New Day, was released in 2008, and was Billboard’s highest charting album by a Native American, selling over 400,000 copies. A CMT six-part documentary also aired in Canada called “Crystal: Living the Dream”, giving fans an inside look at Crystal’s life in Nashville. In 2009, Crystal was named Canadian Country Music Association’s Femal Artist of the Year, after several hit singles and a massive tour with Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. In 2010, Crystal toured with Reba McEntire, started her own record label, New Sun Records, with her husband, and performed on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Crystal continues to put her heart in soul in her music, winning 2013’s Juno Award for Aboriginal Album of the Year. Crystal Shawanda is a colorful and oh so talented singer/songwriter that is breathing new life into her culture and showing the world the beauty within her.

John McCauley (of Deer Tick) at City Winery

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, John McCauley started Deer Tick in the winter of 2004 as a drum and guitar duo. After touring around the United States extensively and a few DIY releases, Deer Tick released its first album, War Elephant, in the fall of 2007. Shortly after in 2008, Deer Tick joined the Brooklyn-based Partisan Records family. Since then, the band has been unstoppable and has released three LPs—Born On Flag Day in 2009, The Black Dirt Sessions in 2010, and Divine Providence in 2011, as well as three EPs.

In 2010, John McCauley, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit formed Middle Brother. They played their first show at the 2010 SXSW Music Conference under the moniker “MG&V.” Their first official show was in the winter of 2010 at the Troubadour in Los Angeles as Middle Brother. They released their self-titled debut in March of 2011 and also embarked on a month-long national tour with Dawes and Deer Tick. The album was met with massive critical praise, and the band headlined the Newport Folk Festival in 2011.

Always interested in collaborating, McCauley’s next project was Diamond Rugs. While living in Nashville, he attended a Los Lobos concert and convinced Steve Berlin to come to Nashville and record. Over the course of the next month, several other players became involved in the project, namely Ian Saint Pé of Black Lips, Hardy Morris of Dead Confederate, Deer Tick bandmate Robbie Crowell, and hometown friend Bryan Dufresne of Six Finger Satellite. Each artist contributed their own songs to the album, which was recorded and produced in Nashville by Adam Landry and Justin Collins (who also produced Middle Brother and Deer Tick). The self-titled debut was released in April 2012.

Music Masters: Honoring Producer Jeff Stevens

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Jeff Stevens began producing and co-writing with Luke Bryan on his first album, I’ll Stay Me, in 2007, and the two have been musical collaborators ever since. In the 1980s, Stevens led a band, Jeff Stevens and the Bullets, that recorded for Atlantic America Records before breaking up in 1990. Stevens continued as a solo artist for Atlantic before transitioning into songwriting, and scoring big hits with Tracy Byrd, Tim McGraw, and George Strait. Stevens’s first significant success as a producer came when he started working with Bryan. Stevens produced and co-wrote Bryan’s first hit, “All My Friends Say,” and he has produced every Bryan album since, and co-written other hits, including the #1“Someone Else Calling You Baby.” The conversation will be illustrated with photos and videos from his career and Stevens will perform briefly. This program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming, and is offered in connection with the exhibit Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary presented by Citi.

The Grascals

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Great musicians will always find a way to make good music, but for great musicians to make great music, they must form a bond – one that, more often than not, goes beyond the purely musical to the personal. For The Grascals, that bond has been forged at the intersection of personal friendships, shared professional resumes and an appreciation for the innovative mingling of bluegrass and country music that has been a hallmark of the Nashville scene for more than forty years. As their records prove, The Grascals’ rare musical empathy gives them an unerring ear for just the right touch to illuminate each offering’s deepest spirit - whether they’re digging into one of their original songs or reworking a bluegrass classic or a pop standard.

The Rocky Mountain AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship

Presented by Loretta Lynn's Ranch at Loretta Lynn's Ranch

The Annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship is held at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. It’s the largest and most prestigious racing prize for amateur motocross riders in the nation. This is the concluding event following 50 area qualifying events and 12 regional championships around the country. More than 20,000 racers attempted to qualify for the 1,446 available positions.

The racetrack is utilized just twice a year for the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships (since 1982) and AMA ATV Motocross Championship (since 1985). A track used so little ensures a fair playing field, and no "hometown advantage," since no one will have a chance to ride or race on it before the rest of the competition arrives.

Nashville Sunday Night | Good Old War

Presented by Lightning 100 at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Win tickets in Nashville and Middle Tennessee courtesy NowPlayingNashville.com

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.

Broken Into Better Shape finds Good Old War pushing their musical boundaries to the limit. Road-weary from two years at sea, the trio set out to write an album full of songs that were not limited to sounding perfect in a live experience. They bunkered down in Goodwin’s toddler-toy-filled house and struggled for half a year to find what they were looking for. Around this time, drummer Tim Arnold left the band for Atlanta, where his fiancé was pregnant with their first child. Arnold’s DNA remains in the band and his fingerprints are still present as a writer on some of the tracks on the record.

With half of the album’s songs now written, Goodwin and Schwartz began experimenting with other writers and producers. In New York City, they dreamed up the ultra-inspirational “Fly Away” with writer Emile Haynie (fun., Bruno Mars). A trip to Los Angeles found them improbably paired in a writing session with Zimbabwe-born urban producer T-Collar, where a hook was crafted that the band were eager to take to the studio. It would become their first single, “Tell Me What You Want From Me.”
Broken Into Better Shape became the record that it is in Nashville, where the band wrote and rounded out songs with producer Jason Lehning (Alison Krause & Union Station, MatKearney, Dolly Parton) and with the aid of a terrific group of musicians and writers. Whereas much of the band’s earlier work had been written individually, this album would end up being a grand collaboration.

Grass Fed Sundays | Nashville Gun Show and Fireside Collective

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

Country Music stardom, fast finger-picking gurus, and the dwellings of the best hired-gun music-shooters you could ask for. Now, when you put a few of those hired-guns together, on a single stage, it’s a sraight-up gun fight out of the Old West, just, instead of bullets, music is the ammunition being used! Thus, being a diverse acoustic trio that weaves a beautiful bluegrass tapestry of blues, Americana, and Folk, the Nashville Gun Show was born. Three is all you need when these talented harmonizers, slick-pickers, and heart-felt song writers come together. Long-time East Nashville resident Jeff Burke has been playing around Music City’s finest (both venues and artists alike), glinting his steel on guitar and mandolin. On the dog house bass is Sam West, a song-writer, poet, and general busy-body that you can generally find playing out on any given bright Nashville night. Carrying three pistols: mandolin, fiddle, and guitar, John Beck plays to kill. These three amazingly talented musicians put on a show that could only have been born in the smoky bars of Music City.

Rapidly burning a place for themselves in music history with their progressive approach to American folk music, Fireside Collective enraptures listeners with unforgettable and modern songwriting. Beginning in Asheville, North Carolina, Fireside Collective performs original songs intended for a modern audience. After the release of their debut album “Shadows and Dreams,” the band hit the road hoping to engage audiences with their lively performances shaped around instrumental proficiency, colorful harmonies, and innovative musical arrangements. Bluegrass, Newgrass, and Progressive Folk have been some of the descriptions that mandolinist and songwriter Jesse Iaquinto chooses to identify with. Though roots music lies at the core of Fireside Collective’s songs, a willingness to push beyond the confines of tradition. The band exploded onto the scene in early 2014, following the release of “Shadows and Dreams.” Fireside Collective weaves bluegrass, funk, rock, and blues all into one refreshing representation of modern folk music. From the beginning to the end, this album takes listeners on a journey through simple love songs to coexistence and metaphysics. 2015 is geared to be a great year for the band, with performances lined up across the Southeast, making a trip to Colorado, and then heading to the East Coast. Fireside Collective is Jesse Iaquinto on mandolin and vocals, Tommy Maher on Dobro and vocals, Carson White on bass and vocals, and Josh Bertram on acoustic guitar.

Live Music

Presented by Legends Corner at Legends Corner

Some will say that a trip to Nashville is never complete without visiting the tried and true honky-tonk saloons along downtown Broadway. While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

102.9 The Buzz presents The Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson

Presented by Live Nation at Ascend Amphitheater

Win tickets in Nashville and Middle Tennessee courtesy NowPlayingNashville.com

The contrast between the pomp and bombast of Manson and the crystalline clarity of the Smashing Pumpkins could not have been starker. The Pumpkins' stage setup was refreshingly minimalist, with long white strips of fabric acting as a canvas to reflect lights and abstract patterns. Corgan wore a button-down shirt tucked into a pair of dress pants, as if he was on his way to a dinner party. (Manson looked more like a rock star in his intricate black leather outfits, but Corgan embodied the rock star.) Over the course of an hour and a half, Corgan and his band revisited their greatest hits without apology or nostalgia, peppering the set with new material, rare songs and an impassioned take on Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide." - Rolling Stone review of Tour open.

BrightStone Bowlability

Presented by BrightStone at Franklin Family Entertainment Center

BOWLABILITY takes place at the Family Entertainment Center of Franklin. Based on teams that raise funds and compete for prizes, the event is fast becoming one of the most fun-filled and rewarding fundraising benefits in the Franklin area! People team up through their workplace, church, club, or school with family, friends or co-workers to register and reserve their lane for two hours of friendly, competitive fun.

Team registration is nominal at $25 per bowler, and each bowler has a minimum dollar goal of $100 that they attempt to raise. Many bowlers quickly raise their fundraising dollars through individualized webpages, while others use the more traditional methods of face-to-face asks or letters.

KMFDM with CHANT and Intertia

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Spawned in Paris, France on February 29, 1984, Kein Mehrheit FŸr Die Mitleid (which loosely translates into Òno pity for the majorityÓ) was initially an industrial-audio concept accompanying art-installations by Erste Hilfe, a group of painters and sculptors, enfant terrible of the mid-80Õs German underground art-scene. In the following years, KMFDM began to pioneer the crossover between techno/dance and heavy metal with their signature sound. Relocating to Chicago in 1990, KMFDM was the pride of Wax Trax Records during the labelÕs peak.

Under the leadership of German-born music founder Sascha K. a/k/a KŠptÕn K, the only permanent member throughout the bandÕs history, KMFDM is still going strong after over three decades of conceptual continuity, regularly recording and releasing albums and frequently touring the world over. Despite the fact that KMFDM consumed the majority of his time and efforts over the years, KŠptÕn K still got involved in several side-projects (MDFMK, Excessive Force, Schwein, KGC, OK¥ZTEIN¥OK) and made a name for himself as a music producer as well as a remixer (Metallica, White Zombie, Front 242 and many more).

An Acoustic Evening with Rich Robinson

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Rich Robinson formed the The Black Crowes with his older brother Chris in Atlanta in the 1980’s. At the age of 17, Robinson began writing the music for the songs that would land on the band’s 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, which sold 7 million copies.

Over the next 10 years, Rich’s songwriting evolved into the musical engine that powered the band to sales of more than 25 million albums. Before taking a hiatus in 2001, the Crowes catalog included classics like The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, Amorica, By Your Side, and Live at the Greek: Excess All Areas, a double album that captured the teaming of Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes for performances of Led Zeppelin, Crowes and blues and rock standards.

In 2004 Rich began his solo journey with the release of his first album, Paper. The record was largely an extension of Rich’s musicianship as a Black Crowe showcasing his stellar and under-rated guitar playing and, for the first time, Rich took on the role of lyricist and lead vocalist.

Paste Magazine:“Rich Robinson brings back not only roots-rock accessibility, but the complexity and originality that transformed the Black Crowes into a band that mattered. Paper is filled with beautiful melodies and harmonies, creative guitar work, fitting instrumentation and, most of all, excellent songwriting.”

It would be seven years before his second solo album, Through A Crooked Sun,and an accompanying EP, Llama Blues, were released as the Crowes reunited in 2005 and were actively recording and touring until their second hiatus in 2010. Crooked Sun, a far more personal album than his first, was a collection of 12 songs that expressed the increasing spiritual and political awareness that Rich’s life had taken. Recorded in Woodstock in 2011, the album featured Joe Magistro, Steve Molitz and guest performances by Warren Haynes, Larry Campbell, Karl Berger, John Lindberg, and John Medeski.

PopMatters: “A solo artist worth taking seriously…It’s why this is such a significant solo album—even at their most melodic, the Crowes are simply too brash and energetic to ever be this delicate. By stepping out of the Crowes’ comfort zone, Robinson proves that he’s more than a gifted instrumentalist. Robinson has developed a writing style that is indeed reminiscent of the Crowes but also encompasses levels of emotional intricacy that the Crowes, for all their power, are sometimes incapable of reaching.”

With the release of his third solo album, The Ceaseless Sight, Robinson completes the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. In his album review for Rolling Stone, David Fricke sums up that evolution: “Rich Robinson has been a gathering storm, closing in on a lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues, bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool.”

The critical response to the album has been universally positive. Premier Guitarcalls The Ceaseless Sight,“robust with catchy melodies and an arching, pastoral feel,” and Ultimate Classic Rock says it’s“a remarkable album that easily stands out as one of the best of the year…the music itself is downright flawless. Robinson has taken the influences of his entire lifetime and integrated them into one sound.”

Macy Gray

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Macy Gray -- a multi-award winning, multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter, actress and mother of three teenagers -- has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since the beginning of her musical career in 2000 with her critically acclaimed debut album ‘On How Life Is’. A truly gifted songwriter and brilliantly unique vocalist, Macy first entered the international musical arena with her hit single ‘I Try’ and soon became an instant global superstar.

With a colorful career that includes multiple Grammy, Billboard, MTV and BRIT Awards, and record sales of over 25 million worldwide, the integrity and innovation of Macy Gray’s artistry has allowed her to forge her own path to success and win fans and critics from all around the world. Her music transcends genres, from experimental soul and alternative rock, to retro-disco and hip-hop. However, what the accolades, awards and impressive sales figures from over the years have failed to illustrate is the depth and breadth of Macy’s artistry and vision.

Reno Collier

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

A former P.E. teacher, West Virginia native Reno Collier has endeared himself to a wide range of audiences from college students to church softball teams. With a contagious laugh and friendly, almost intoxicating demeanor, Reno's observations often find him recalling mishaps of his West Virginia cousins, his Scottish heritage, unruly in-laws and alien abductions. Reno's journey began at the Punchline Comedy Club in Atlanta, GA where he tended bar to supplement his day job. One night he found himself on stage during the weekly open mic night. His unique outlook on life - mixed with a six-pack - was instantly popular and provided a platform to launch a career as a comedian.

Reno has built a reputation by selling out comedy clubs and colleges nationwide. In 2004 he joined Larry The Cable Guy on the hugely successful "2004 Tour of America". Reno's other national tours look more like a comedian's wish list than a resume, including theater and arena tours with the legendary Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White. In January 2007, he re-joined Larry The Cable Guy for his wildly successful arena tour currently spanning the United States and Canada. Reno's past TV credits include NBC's "Late Friday", "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", "The Martin Short Show", VH-1's "The List", and Comedy Central's "Premium Blend". In 2005 and 2006, Reno headlined the "Comics on Duty" tour for American troops stationed in Iraq. He is a regular fixture on the Bob & Tom syndicated radio show and Country Music Television (CMT), hosting various specials for the network. He has performed at the prestigious HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO and the Montreal Comedy Festival, and in 2005, taped his own "Comedy Central Presents" half-hour special. He can currently be heard during his weekly call-ins to the Blue Collar Comedy Channel on Sirius Satellite Radio.

Rachael Hester and The Tennessee Walkers

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Rachael Hester grew up with a passion for traditional music as a second generation singer. songwriter, and musician. The most signicant infuences musically came from her father who played modern country for a living and more traditional country and western swing for fun and from her mother who sang bluegrass gospel in church. Rachael grew up in the studio and backstage of famous Nashville shows such as The Grand Ole Opry and the nightly TV show Nashville Now. In fact it was on Nashville Now that she got her ?rst taste of performing at age six when she sang Away In A Manger with her father and sister on the Christmas special.

Rachael’s love for performing seemed almost innate, and music was a major part of everyday family activities. Her father taught her and her sister to sing harmony and read the Nashville number system when they were small children. Long family road trips were filled with three-part harmony, and the hymn book was as important on those trips as the road map. Rachael’s junior year of high school she entered the school talent show and received first place. More than anything, this experience gave her a taste of the adrenaline rush that comes only from performing for a crowd. Later that year her ?rst real experience singing in the studio was on a two-song project with famous players Steve Warnier, John Gardner, Jeff Taylor, Andy Reiss, and Hoot Hester. Rachael began playing piano at age seven and has been playing guitar since 2008. She graduated from Belmont University in 2007 with a major in Music Business.

Shane Michael Taylor Presents: A Country Dream Comes Alive

Presented by The Listening Room Cafe at The Listening Room Cafe

Odds-defying country artist Shane Michael Taylor will be sharing his stories and songs in concert at The Listening Room Café in Nashville on August 12th at 8:30pm in honor of his lifelong friend and musical mentor, Lorna Flowers.

Tickets are $5 and all proceeds from the evening will go to MusiCares®, a charity established by The Recording Academy® that provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. Joining Shane on stage for this milestone concert will be Mason Douglas, Eddie Heinzelman, and Justin & Jamie Zimmer with special guests Jack Sundrud and Mark Lonsway.

Shane Michael Taylor has overcome more obstacles and adversity in his three decades than most songwriters could imagine facing in a lifetime. Shane navigates the world in a wheelchair. In addition, he struggles to communicate verbally as a result of being born with a severe form of Cerebral Palsy, a developmental disorder affecting movement, speech and posture. Making excuses, however, was never an option for this Waterbury, CT native, who taught himself to type with his nose at the age of five. Fueled by his lifelong love of country music and an unrelenting desire to shatter stereotypes, Shane earned a college degree in Music Business and began making frequent visits to Nashville to co-write with prominent Music City songwriters like Lorna Flowers and Mason Douglas. Now, after years of honing his craft, Taylor is gearing up to release a debut album of his songs entitled I Will Stand, set to release fall of 2015.

Pat McLaughlin & The Roughnecks

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Pat McLaughlin is a maverick. The revered, if a bit enigmatic, singer, songwriter and guitarist has spent years honing his layered style. Dedicated only to the pursuit of a new groove or an old feeling, his songs rehash the sights and sounds of a reformed nomad with roots in Iowa, footprints in San Francisco, New Orleans and Chicago, and a home in Nashville.

Raised in Waterloo, Iowa, McLaughlin landed in San Francisco, California, in the early 1970s. He had given college in Arizona a try but found the lure of music unshakable. In California, Pat began to write songs, playing alone at open mic nights and in the streets near the bay.

McLaughlin's compositions have been recorded by a jaw-dropping array of artists including Bonnie Raitt, Alan Jackson, Taj Mahal, Trisha Yearwood, Al Kooper, Nanci Griffith, Josh Turner, Shawn Camp and Don Williams. Gary Allan recorded Pat's "Songs About Rain," securing yet another BMI Country Award for McLaughlin. An in-demand studio musician, Pat's guitar "chunking" finessed projects by Jamie Hartford, Rosanne Cash, Julie Roberts, Don Williams, Al Cooper, Shawn Camp, Cowboy Jack Clement, Neil Diamond and many more. As further testament to McLaughlin's skill, engineer David Ferguson called on Pat to play acoustic guitar for the final Johnny Cash recording sessions. A frequent collaborator of John Prine, Pat McLaughlin frequently finds himself working alongside legends. Rolling Stone called McLaughlin "a tasty, rootsy gem," while he prompted the Tennessean's Peter Cooper to spout poetry: "Groove and soul, slink and stutter, groove and soul, wisdom and pain, groove and soul."

In 2006, McLaughlin released Horsefly, again featuring the co-production credits of McLaughlin and Kenny Greenberg. Loose but focused, the tracks ebb and flow seamlessly, offering wry observations on life's satisfactions and misfires. "No one since Dan Penn has better mixed '60s soul idioms with country music sentiment," proclaimed the Chicago Sun-Times. "Pat McLaughlin is an American treasure."

Live on The Sutler Stage | Adam Faucett

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

Live on The Sutler Stage presents Adam Faucett!

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding. Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date. Faucett began performing solo in 2006 when the demise of Russellville, AR band Taught the Rabbits pushed him toward Chicago. He returned to Arkansas in 2007 to record his first solo album The Great Basking Shark, and began touring nationally. 2008’s Show Me Magic, Show Me Out followed, featuring Faucett’s band, The Tall Grass. A relentless touring schedule has led to shows with Jason Isbell, Damien Jurado, Chuck Ragan, and Lucero. For the past two years, Adam has toured nationally and internationally in support of his third acclaimed release, More Like A Temple, which received praise from outlets including American Songwriter, Paste Magazine, No Depression and Uprooted Music Review. Temple also gained overseas support, landing at #14 on the EuroAmericana chart and receiving 5 stars from Altcountry.NL, bringing him to Europe for the first time. From the opening note of the first track of Faucett’s new release Blind Water Finds Blind Water (Last Chance Records - 2014), it becomes clear that there is no holding back on this album. The emotionally raw “Day Drinker” sets the tone for a tour of unearthly themes set against the workaday backdrops of rural and suburban Arkansas. Sublime melodies mix tensely with characters who live in unsavory and haunted spaces. A Staten Island killer, an abusive ex-husband, and the 20th century "sleeping prophet" Edgar Cayce, all make appearances. Faucett, who says he “identifies more with the flood than the victims”, explains “the tunes of Blind Water take full responsibility for the irreversible damage.” “Benton” and “Sparkman” reference two of the Arkansas towns where Adam spent his childhood, with the treatment of these stomping grounds blending reality and fiction to create Faucett’s own Arkansas Gothic vision. Deeply personal moments "Opossum", "Poet Song", and "Walking Home Late" are, according to Faucett, “all almost word for word true autobiographical accounts of my life in the not-so-Southern, not-so-Midwestern bastard state of mind that is Central Arkansas. This record, written on the run physically and emotionally, is a mapping of a moment guided by the whim and mercy of others. Water, blind and helpless moves not where it wants but where it’s allowed.”

Howie Day with Opener Casey Buckley

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Howie Day’s emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic, heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day’s warm tenor voice “soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,” as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well as new material from his upcoming studio release.

A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S. He wrote, financed and released his first effort, Australia, which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. The Boston Globe called Day “gorgeously seasoned, far beyond his years” with “a brave, beautiful singing voice.” During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell over 30,000 copies of Australia as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft.

After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off: Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: “She Says” and the platinum single “Collide.” After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release, Sound the Alarm, built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day’s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It’s lead single, “Be There,” became a staple at modern AC radio.

After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the Ceasefire EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. “There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,” Day says. “Everything seems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it’s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it’s just in the moment.”

Film: The Barefoot Contessa

Presented by Frist Center for the Visual Arts at Frist Center for the Visual Arts

Give Netflix a rest this summer and come see the last of three classic movies on glorious (and increasingly rare) 35 mm film at the Frist Center in our Italian Style on Celluloid series.  Inspired by the exhibition Italian Style: Fashion since 1945, this selection features some of the most iconic films of the twentieth century, with sharply dressed stars, glamorous locations, and a very Italian brand of cool nonchalance. Join us for La Dolce Vita (June 19), Roman Holiday (July 10), and The Barefoot Contessa (August 14), and experience the Hollywood on the Tiber phenomenon for yourself. 

Humphrey Bogart plays Harry Dawes, a recovering alcoholic and film director who plucks simple nightclub dancer Maria Vargas (Ava Gardner) out of obscurity and transforms her into an international movie star. The Barefoot Contessa details the rise and fall of the starlet-turned-aristocrat. The film, shot at the Cinecittà Studios in Rome and featuring glamorous costumes by Italian couturiers Sorelle Fontana (the Fontana sisters), is a prime example of the Hollywood on the Tiber phenomenon. This Technicolor masterpiece—the final evening in our “Italian Style on Celluloid” series—will be shown on 35 mm film, making this already rare screening an event not to be missed.

Directed by Joseph Mankiewicz. NR. 1954. 130 minutes. 35 mm.

Star Party - August

Presented by Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society at Bells Bend Outdoor Center

Star parties are a great way to become acquainted with the real night sky. Astronomy enthusiasts from all around the area gather under a clear night sky to view the astronomical sights above. It doesn't matter whether you have a degree in astrophysics or you don't know which end of a telescope to look in, everyone is welcome. Even if you're just a beginner, a star party can be a great introduction to the night sky. If you have a telescope or binoculars, bring them along - the more, the merrier!

To escape the effects of light pollution, star parties are often held far away from city lights. Sometimes, though, we'll meet right in front of Adventure Science Center for a look at brighter objects like the Moon and planets.

Donna Ulissee & The Poor Mtn Boys

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

After moving to Nashville in the 1980s, Donna Ulisse quickly became an in-demand demo singer and background vocalist, lending her voice to recordings by legends such as Jerry Reed. A production deal with Dale Morris, manager of the supergroup Alabama, led to her signing a recording deal with Atlantic Records, which in 1991 released her well-received traditional country album, Trouble At The Door, and two singles that cracked the Billboard country charts. Despite critical acclaim, however, the album failed to generate widespread attention, though it remains a worldwide favorite today among discerning fans of fine traditional country music.

After her Atlantic Records deal ended, she turned her focus to songwriting, amassing a high-quality catalog that often leaned toward bluegrass and mountain music, especially when she wrote alone. That observation by her publisher, Hadley Music Group, led to the recording of her album When I Look Back, the inaugural release of Hadley's own independent record label.

Since then, she has released six more well-received albums for Hadley Music Group, each incorporating traditional and contemporary bluegrass, gospel and country: Walk This Mountain Down (2009), Holy Waters (2010), An Easy Climb (2011), All The Way To Bethlehem (2012), the gospel compilation I Am A Child of God (2013) and Showin' My Roots(2013). Her 2012 release, a stunningly original song cycle relating the story of Christ's birth, drew rave reviews, including: "may be the best Christmas story-related country album of 2012" (Country Standard Time) ... "a work of art" (The Bluegrass Special) ... "a masterpiece" (Bluegrass Unlimited) ... "a grand adventure told in song" (CMT.com).

Sips & Stanzas, Dangerous Minds: Does Hip-Hop Breed Violence?

Presented by National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) at Regal Green Hills Stadium 16

Hip-hop, a genre born out of oppression, communicated the angst of people while celebrating triumphant nature, overcoming and persevering.  But critics, supporters, preachers and educators join us to debate the positive and negatives of Hip-Hop, comparing the genre of the 80s versus a current-day sound. While music changes and morphs with each generation, community leaders share their views on the direct/indirect impact Hip-Hop has on violence in our city and what we see within current-day experiences.

The rise of gangster rap, which included artists such as NWA, Ice T and Death Row Records artists, spoke to major social and political issues of that time (particularly police brutality). Join NMAAM as we dive deep into the discussion of violence as it relates to hip-hop.

Meet the Panelist: Starlito (Rap artist), Patrick-Walker-Reese (Motivational Speaker/Educator/Consultant), John Gotty (Owner of The Smokin Section- national hip-hop blog), Brandon Hill (Community Engagement Specialist at Oasis/Mayor Karl Dean's Youth Council Coordinator) and Pastor Durr (Hip-hop Scholar and Youth Minister at Temple Church).

Moderator: Eric Holt

The panel will be followed by the N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton movie premiere.  Proceeds from the movie ticket purchase will benefit the National Museum of African American Music.

Kent Blazy & His Four Peace Band

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

Kent Blazy was raised in Lexington, Kentucky. At an early age, he played rhythm guitar and sang in various local bands, citing The Byrds, Rodney Crowell and Joe Ely as influences.[2] He later played for Canadian singer Ian Tyson.[1] Later on, Blazy met former Exile member Mark Gray, who suggested that Blazy move to Nashville, Tennessee.[1] Eventually, he signed to a publishing contract, but the publishing company closed; despite the loss of contract, Gary Morris sent Blazy's "Headed for a Heartache" into top 5 on the country charts.[1]

By the late 1980s, Blazy met with a then-unknown Garth Brooks, who gave him the idea for a song entitled "If Tomorrow Never Comes." He and Brooks co-wrote the song, which went on to become Brooks' first Number One hit.[3][4] Brooks continued to record Blazy's material throughout the 1990s, including the singles "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)," "It's Midnight Cinderella", "She's Gonna Make It," "Somewhere Other Than the Night" and the George Jones duet "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)". Blazy has had at least one cut on all but one of Brooks' studio albums (excluding Brooks' Chris Gaines project).[1] He also co-wrote "That's What I Get for Lovin' You" by Diamond Rio and "Can't Get Enough" by Patty Loveless in the late 1990s.

Rob Galbraith

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

An engaging Mose Allison-influenced singer, guitarist and keyboardist, Rob Galbraith cut the fine 1970 pop-soul full-length Nashville Dirt and contributed the song “I’d Hate to Be a Black Man” to 1972’s Jubal, a Nashville-recorded pop-rock-jazz album also featuring fellow Music City eclectic Dennis Linde. Galbraith will be getting some much-deserved attention in 2015 — Chicago reissue label The Numero Group plans to release a set of Galbraith’s late-’60s and early-’70s demos. Besides producing records for Ronnie Milsap and Larry Jon Wilson, Galbraith also wrote and performed the sardonic, Steely Dan-esque “We’ll Always Have Detroit” on his 2004 full-length Too Long at the Fair.

Between The Buried And Me with Animals As Leaders and The Contortionist

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Win tickets in Nashville and Middle Tennessee courtesy NowPlayingNashville.com

The men of BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME have once again charted an expedition into undiscovered country. Colors, BTBAM's fifth and newest release, is a continuous, sonic labyrinth of savage metal, lush prog-rock and uninhibited emotion. "It's the ultimate BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME record," says vocalist Tommy Rogers. "It's definitely the most musical thing we have ever written. It goes through so many shifts and moods but still feels very organic and comfortable."

"Comfortable" is exactly where BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME should be right now. After countless tours, nearly 250,000 records sold, and recording four of the decade's most celebrated albums, BTBAM have every right to feel invigorated. BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME began in 2000 when Tommy Rogers met Paul Waggoner and agreed to craft a style of hard rock that would defy categorization. Their impressive, self-titled debut was a widely heralded collection of stomping, progressive metal and hardcore filled with brutal breakdowns mixed with intricate musicianship and shifts in mood.

The band signed with VICTORY RECORDS shortly after and followed suit with another pivotal release within the metal/hardcore underworld entitled The Silent Circus. This album was another chapter in the ever-evolving band and put them on the map of today's modern wave of forward-thinking American metal. After several line-up changes, the band finally found their footing with 2005's Alaska. New members Dan Briggs, Dustie Waring and Blake Richardson immediately clicked with Rogers and Waggoner and gave BTBAM the kind of foundation that would allow them to take their unique brand of rock to the masses.

Haynes Galleries presents Art Nashville

Presented by Haynes Galleries at Haynes Galleries

Music City’s most acclaimed contemporary Realists are the focus of this summer’s show Art Nashville at Haynes Galleries, opening June 12. The show features a range of artists who hold Nashville close to their hearts. The roster will include seasoned artists as well as those who are new on the scene. Works will be on view from June 12 until August 15.

Nashville is famed for its musical talents, but this exhibition is a clear marker of the ever growing visual art scene. Viewers will enjoy variety and allure in “Art Nashville”. Works range from photographs with a photojournalist edge to Old Master inspired paintings and ceramic sculptures that will play tricks on your eyes.

John Guider’s captivating photography reveals the beauty of the Tennessee landscape and his many worldly adventures. Guider has traveled all over finding splendor in the mundane and oftentimes the overlooked. “Art Nashville” will feature Guider’s platinum prints, a rare and extraordinary process that has been lost over time due to the extra labor and cost. Because a platinum print is metal embedded in paper, with deep blacks and rich grays, it is truly a unique spectacle to behold.

John Baeder garnered international acclaim for his unidealized American diner scenes in the late 20th century. “Art Nashville” will feature Baeder’s photography, which generates the same nostalgia as his paintings. With his lens, he captures the spirit and country grit of Nashville. Baeder’s collection of work has been celebrated for more than forty years. He has published several books and he is soon to release another. A longtime Nashville resident, Baeder is still out capturing the veracity of the ever changing city.

Nashville’s new generation of artists are represented by Richard Greathouse and Amanda Hope Cook. Born and raised in Nashville, Greathouse trained at the internationally renowned Florence Academy of Art and learned the ways of the great masters. Now a principle instructor at the Florence Academy’s American branch in New York, Greathouse has become a premier portraitist and is a leading voice in the next generation of Realism. 

Also raised in Nashville, Amanda Hope Cook embraces a vestige of modern life— neon signs. She seeks them out as they are a part of the city’s history. Guests familiar with some classic Nashville institutions will recognize the glowing tubes so carefully captured in Cook’s oil paintings.

Alan LeQuire’s figure sculptures will be peppered throughout the gallery, just as they can be found installed throughout Nashville, like his bronze reliefs brightening the doors of the Nashville Public Library. LeQuire comes from a line of artistic Nashvillians and studied at Vanderbilt before going off to France and Italy to continue his education in bronze casting.

The show will celebrate artists who have travelled extensively and decided to make Nashville their home. Born in France, Count Bernard de Claviere is a treasure in the art world. Commissioned to paint portraits in over one hundred and forty countries around the world, de Claviere has landed here permanently, his presence adding tremendous value to the Nashville art scene.

“Art Nashville” is a celebration of artists of many trades. Haynes Galleries is proud to be the only Nashville gallery offering Realist art of multiple mediums. From John Guider’s captivating photography and Alan LeQuire’s bronze figures to Jody Thompson’s miniature paintings, art of all sorts will be represented. With art that is of an international caliber, “Art Nashville” is sure to please the native and visiting audiences.

An Evening with Rickie Lee Jones

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Please Note: Food and drink service will be limited during this show so please arrive 90 minutes to 2 hours before the show time if you are interested in ordering dinner service

Each ticket purchase will include a download of Rickie Lee Jones' new album.

Think of what you are about to read as a documentary film of sorts, replete with close-ups and fade-outs, starring the premiere song-stylist and songwriter of her generation, Rickie Lee Jones.

In this film we see: Rickie Lee Jones’ face, her distinctive mouth, and her thick, beyond shoulder length blonde hair as she walks down a road in a bucolic section of Tacoma, Washington, where she currently resides. It is springtime. She does not wear shoes. She carries a guitar. The sky overhead is as shiny as mica. As Jones searches for a place to sit and play in the sun, we see various aspects of her contemporary life come into frame, engaging Jones’ attention as she smiles, and listens, and reflects. We see her daughter, Charlotte Rose; Jones’ mother and siblings; various friends. All of these people come and go, passing in front of, and behind, our primary focus: Rickie Lee Jones playing her guitar and singing any number of her award winning songs: "Chuck E.’s in Love," or her interpretation of the classic, "Making Whoopee," for which she won a Grammy® in 1990.

As Rickie Lee Jones sings, we hear, in voice over: Rickie Lee Jones is the second of three daughters and one son who are of Welsh and Irish ancestry. She was born on November 8, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois. Her parents, Richard Loris Jones and Bettye Jane Jones, both had peripatetic childhoods: her father lived from hand to mouth in a number of transient hotels, and rode the rails, wandering the country. Her mother was an orphan. She has described her family as "lower-middle-class-hillbilly-hipster.

Grass Fed Sundays | Old Time Music Affair, Grits & Soul

Presented by The Sutler at The Sutler

Grass Fed Sundays presents Old Time Music Affair and Grits & Soul, live on The Sutler stage!

Old Time Music Affair: Based out of Asheville, Old Time Music Affair (formely Locust Honey String Band) is an all female band that plays “heart-breakin’ country harmonies and raging old-time fiddle tunes.” Started in 2011 by Chloe Edmonstone, who plays fiddle, guitar, and sings, Old Time Music Affair is her way of incorporating her wide-spread musical interests, from vocal-harmonies, bluegrass, and Old-Time Fiddle, into music. Old Time Music Affair also consists of Meredith Watson on guitar, slide guitar, and vocals, Hilary Hawke on banjo and vocals, and Grace Van’t Hof on banjo and vocals. Each of the respective members brings their eclectic experience and influence in the Old-Time, Bluegrass, and Pre-war Blues traditions to both their original material and the traditional tunes of the American Southeast. With an emphasis on lively arrangements, vocal harmonies, and an ever rotating instrumentation, Old Time Music Affair puts on a dynamic, spirited show that is memorable for anyone.

Grits & Soul: Grits & Soul was formed back in early 2011, when members Anna Kline and John Looney crossed paths. After hearing John’s magnificent mandolin licks and mountainous singing, Anna proposed the join forces, and the rest is history in the making. Mere days after penning the title track to their first album, “Flood Waters” was featured on a local news segment, and aired on NBC affiliates covering the devastating Mississippi River Flood throughout the South, catapulting Soul & Grits into a national recognition. Though they would always have a heart for the Mississippi bayou, Anna and John were itching to  kick things up a notch and relocated to the art-centric Asheville, NC in February 2012. In their relatively brief time together, Grits & Soul has gained an extensive notoriety, playing large scale festivals and showcases, including: SERFA, IMBA, Merlefest, Knoxville’s Rhythm and Blooms Festival, Raleigh’s ‘Cuegrass Festival, Albino Skunk Fest, and in 2015 are scheduled to play the Suwanee Springfest. Highlighting Anna’s powerful voice, and John’s prowess as a talented picker, their music together is evident of gifted songwriters. Their hard driving Bluegrass inspired tracks to their slow-burning bluesy ballads, Grits & Soul are an unforgettable musical experience, finely honing their own unique sound. Their brand of “Soulgrass,” steeped in mountain Bluegrass and Country twang, has drenched their authenticity and seething energy in all things soulfully Southern. You can’t help but clap your hands, stomp your feet, and sing along!

Livingstone's questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love leading to a dramatic, compelling climax.

"Riveting, powerful, electrifying drama...the dialogue crackles." - New York Daily News

Peter Frampton and Cheap Trick

Presented by Live Nation at Ascend Amphitheater

Win tickets in Nashville and Middle Tennessee courtesy NowPlayingNashville.com

Following another year of non-stop touring including select solo performances, dates with The Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Grammy Award winner Peter Frampton is back on the road—this time co-headlining with American rock legends Cheap Trick.

Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes collaborations with such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time.

The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies.

Harlow, Mercy Beach

Presented by Springwater Supper Club at Springwater Supper Club

Relatively new to the musical world, Harlow has been tearing up each and every stage that presents itself to them as they throw down the flag that says there is a new player in the game. Formed in late 2013, every member of Harlow hails from the greater Detroit area and alongside Lauren, Joe Allen, Kevin Razlog and Kelly Weaver have spent years making a name for themselves in other groups in the local Detroit scene. As Harlow came together they knew that something special was going on and they wasted no time to get the momentum rolling. Acclaimed as a Super Group of local talent by some, these four have shrugged off this label and have spent most of 2014 not only representing Detroit but spreading out to the Midwest and venturing new areas in the east of the US to larger and larger crowds. With the recent release of a self-titled EP and the pending release of their first full length Album “Shattered” the band is gearing up for more shows across the US and showing everyone who and what they are made of. Harlow is the next Bombshell on modern music and strives to make music that will connect with all ages, creeds and provide people with music to be a fan of again.

Medicine King & Angela Easley Band

Presented by Douglas Corner Cafe at Douglas Corner Cafe

If Led Zeppelin came from New Orleans, they might have sounded like Medicine King: a hard-rocking, funky, bluesy, in-your-face power trio that can swing like a French Quarter street parade.

Guitarist/vocalist Dave Isaacs, bassist/vocalist Brook Sutton, and drummer/percussionist Robert Crawford met working clubs in Nashville's fertile singer-songwriter scene. While the band started out playing Isaacs' songs as the "Dave Isaacs Trio," Sutton and Crawford brought so much creativity and energy to the project, including new music, that a true partnership soon developed. "There's no leader in this band, we're just not good at doing what we're told" says Sutton. But in live performance it's clear that each takes their turn leading the way, often spontaneously, and the lively interaction between all three personalities is undeniable both onstage and off. A song might take off in a new direction at any moment, but no matter how far the music stretches, it can snap from the edge of chaos back into the groove in an instant.

The Medicine King sound is a meeting of New Orleans and Nashville spiked with a dose of '60's psychedelia: swampy grooves and savvy songwriting, delivered with an irreverent rock-and-roll attitude and a fearless improvisational spirit. It's dynamic and powerful music played with fierce, joyous abandon. You know what's up

The Music City Medium Cindy Kaza

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

**This is NOT a Comedy Show**

Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium based out of Nashville, TN. She has been extremely intuitive since very, early childhood but had her first memorable experience with a spirt at age 10.  Days after losing an elementary school friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing right next to her bed.  At the time, she dismissed this experience. She convinced herself it was just a dream.  It wasn’t until her early 20?s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multifaceted abilities as a psychic medium. Cindy is clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing) and clairsentient (clear feeling) . She  works as an evidential medium.  Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter.

This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit. Cindy has trained thoroughly through the United States and also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England.  There is no right or wrong way to grieve the loss of a loved one. Each person experiences the loss of a loved one in his/her own way. Cindy believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess. Everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!

45 RPM

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

Maybe you’re old enough to remember it…the way that music sounded coming out of an A.M. radio in your dad’s truck when he drove you to school in the morning…or the 8-track player at your grandmother’s house…Haggard, Jones, Charley Pride, Ronnie Milsap, Mel Street…. remember…70’s country…. real country. Well, we remember, and we are proud of it. It all started a while back when a few of us Nashville “pickers” decided that we were tired of playing too loud, and that we seldom got the chance anymore to play the music we loved. A few months later, 45 rpm was ready to go...  Several of country music’s biggest names have been known to drop by and set in with the band for a number or two, singing their favorites.

George Porter, Jr.

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid 60's and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977, but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

Few bass players in the history of modern New Orleans music are as storied as George Porter Jr. During the course of a career spanning more then four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in the Meters, but he’s notched session work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal, Ryan Montbleau and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno (and including recent studio releases with Warren Haynes and Bill Kreutzmann) just to name a few. Early in his career, Porter worked with seminal New Orleans artists like Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Lee Dorsey, and Johnny Adams, Irma Thomas, The Lastie Brothers again to only name a few.

Porter is also the bandleader of his own unique long term project the Runnin’ Pardners, well respected not only as a quintessential New Orleans band, the touring band continues to receive accolades on the jam band and festival scene.

Tyler Barham

Presented by Puckett's Boat House at Puckett's Boat House

If in today’s music environment, online followings are the foundation of an artist’s career, then Montana native Tyler Barham is looking solid as a rock.  This Country singer/songwriter, with a voice that has been described as ringing like a bell, has built a foundation of more than 50,000 dedicated online fans with nearly 9 million views.  Born in Bozeman and raised in Florence, Montana, Tyler began singing when he was nine. Although he enjoyed singing different styles of music, it did not take him long to realize his heart (anda eventually his baritone voice) belonged to country music. In his early teens, Tyler competed and won various regional talent competitions, but also while in high school, Tyler discovered YouTube and began posting covers of his favorite country songs, which quickly introduced him to a worldwide audience.

Donna Carter

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

After rigorous comedy classes and seemingly endless nights and weeks and months of unpaid open mic performances, Donna landed her first paid gig in August, 1998, and from that point on,  it’s been on!

In March of 2002, Donna made the leap of faith (or insanity, depending on your point of view), and went full-time as a comic. Since then she has been entertaining virtually every week at clubs all over the country, and in September 2002, was given an opportunity to have her standup filmed for a documentary to be released within a few months.

Most folk would be afraid to start something as bold as comedy at the age of 40, let alone begin a new career at 44.  Most (especially Donna’s mother) think she’s crazy.  

Ms. Carters career is on the rise!  Her new Live CD entitled, “Fat Girls Don’t Wrinkle” is on sale now at her live performances and in the Yardsale tab on her website.  Listen for selected CD tracks on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

In 2012, Donna’s taped her first comedy feature for Comcast starring in XFINITY’s On Demand Stand-Up Comedy Series, Who’s Laughing Now!  The show benefited the USO of Indiana and was taped in Indianapolis at the Indiana War Memorial.

Rob Ickes, Trey Hensley, Aubrie Haynie, Mike Bub and John Alvey

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

It's a packed night of Nashville's finest musicians.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, Rob Ickes (rhymes with "bikes") comes from a musical family. His grandparents played old-time fiddle music, and Rob trained his young musical ear at their weekly jam sessions. Although his family wanted Rob to play fiddle, the instrument didn't interest him. Then, at the age of thirteen, Rob was exposed to the Dobro playing of Mike Auldridge, and the sound immediately caught his attention. Soon after, Rob got his first Dobro, and he has been playing music ever since.

Rob moved to Nashville in 1992 and joined Blue Highway, the highly esteemed bluegrass band, as a founding member in 1994. He is recognized as one of the most innovative Dobro players on the scene today, contributing signature technique and greatly expanding the boundaries of the instrument's sonic and stylistic territory. He won the International Bluegrass Music Association's Dobro Player of the Year award for a record-setting fifteenth time in 2013; IBMA notes that he is the most awarded instrumentalist in the history of the IBMA awards.

As an active session player and touring musician, he has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including Charlie Haden, Merle Haggard, Earl Scruggs, Tony Rice, David Grisman, Alison Krauss, Willie Nelson, David Lee Roth, Dolly Parton, Patty Loveless, Peter Rowan, Claire Lynch, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Josh Abbott Band

Presented by Exit/In at Exit/In

Weeks before its Valentine's Day release on iTunes, the Josh Abbott Band's "Touch" was already well on its way toward being one of the most talked-about songs in Texas music of 2012. Granted, the hot-streak momentum of Abbott's career had a lot to do with that. In the wake of the breakout success of "Oh, Tonight" (which climbed to No. 44 on Billboard's country chart) and the title track from 2010's regional smash "She's Like Texas," created a stir that reached all the way to music executives in Nashville and New York City. That set up pretty much any track that the 31-year-old singer-songwriter picked to be the lead single from his band's much-anticipated third album nicely, ensuring it was bound to garner a fair amount of attention. But from the very first time it was played in concert or over the airwaves, it was clear that "Touch" had a lot more going for it than just good timing. From the erotic tension and release of its slow-burning verses and soaring chorus to the dramatic crescendo of fiddle and guitars at the outro, it's a song that captures every ounce of the passion, talent, and vision that's propelled the Josh Abbott Band to the forefront of the Texas music scene in record time. And as the rest of Small Town Family Dream proves convincingly, they're here to stay.

Firefall

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

As dusk enveloped the spectacular vistas of Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, California, a huge pile of wood lay stacked at the edge of a high cliff. Nature lovers from far corners of the world gathered on the valley floor, waiting till dark when the woodpile was torched and slowly pushed off the cliff, the burning logs forming a blazing cascade down the mountain's stony face. The image of the primitive light show, staged at Yosemite for tourists, stuck in Florida-born Rick Roberts' mind for a long time. Then in 1973, as he and his new Colorado based band were about to play their first gig but still needed a name, the image flashed back: Firefall. That seems an especially dead-on handle for the country flavored rock'n'roll band that carried the torch of musical forebears such as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Flying Burrito Brothers into the mid-'70s and beyond.

For the better part of the next decade, Firefall burned brightly it at both ends, musically and personally, and then appeared to flame out, at least on record. By 1982, they'd cut eight albums (scoring gold for the first three, with the third going on to platinum-plus), and put 11 singles on the charts. FIREFALL GREATEST HITS satisfied many fans who'd been asking for a collection of the band's best known songs - all their hit 45s and a handful of the choicest LP tracks, plus a new, previously unreleased Firefall recording penned by co-founder Jock Bartley --"Run Run Away."

Kayleigh Leith and Stephen Cogswell

Presented by Tennessee Brew Works (TapRoom) at Tennessee Brew Works (TapRoom)

During a tour stop in Nashville in 2012 Kayleigh Leith took some time to write with some of Nashville's top songwriters. One of those writers was Rob Crosby. Rob penned tracks for people like Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride and many others. Rob took Kayleigh under his wing and the two set off on creating Kayleigh's second album. Kayleigh really wanted that Nashville New Country sound, so she returned to Music City later that year to start recording her second album called 'This Woman' with Rob Crosby as acting producer. It also features some of Nashville’s top talent such as country superstars Eric Paslay and Rose Falcon.
“This Woman” was released on September 12th 2013 and received outstanding reviews by the country media all over Europe and North America. She was even named one of Country Music’s Best Newcomers by American country sites; Yallw ire.com and Countrysite.com. The release was followed by 2 European tours and a spot on the main stage at the Pittsburgh 3 Rivers Arts Festival in 2014.

San Francisco Bay Area musician Stephen Cogswell chose to bring things back to the basics with with his debut solo album "Floating."  All greatest songs ever created can be chiseled down to a voice and an acoustic guitar. It was this simplicity and purity of soul that Stephen was aiming for when embarking on the journey of creating his debut solo album. The focus of these songs were on voice, soul, lyrics, and unique instrumentation. The fulfillment of Cogswell's long time desire to share his many love songs. The project also emerged at the urging of friends and fans of wanting to hear something more vocally and lyrically centered from Stephen.

Palaver Thursday | Cold Creeks, The Madd Hatter, Rayvon Pettis, and The Jenkins Twins

Presented by Palaver Records at FooBar

Cold Creeks got its name simply by stepping in a cold creek... Unlike the story behind the name, in hopefully the near future, Cold Creeks is looking to create extravagant stories through concept albums and the integration of other art mediums. Cold Creeks has a goal to tell stories beyond simply words or music, but rather embellishing stories told by our music with video, written stories, photography, and more. Spread the word, and tune in for more updates.

About the members:
Cold Creeks is a band of dreamers and doers who share a deep love of music. Brandon Murphy, singer-songwriter and guitarist, met Pearl Stewart, drummer, keyboard player, and backup vocalist, through solo recording sessions at Darkhorse Recording Studios in Franklin, Tn. A few months later, bassist and cellist Caleb A. Jones joined the band after befriending Brandon in their high school French class. Then as Cold Creeks, they went back to Darkhorse Recording studios in October of 2014 to work on their six song EP titled Mindful Spirits with talented friend Cason Pratt as engineer and producer.

Lineup:

11:15PM Cold Creeks
10:30PM The Madd Hatter
9:45PM Rayvon Pettis

Langhorne Slim & The Law

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

For Langhorne Slim -- Pennsylvania-born self-taught guitarist who moves to Brooklyn at 18, begins feeling out his place in a burgeoning punk-folk scene, wends his way to the West Coast, and finds himself celebrated from Newport to Portland as one of today's most original singers and songwriters -- "The Way We Move" represents the sound of a band devoted to living in the moment. Riding the success of his 2009 full-length Be Set Free, Langhorne went through some changes over the last three years -- he lost his beloved grandfather, who is the subject of the new record's moving "Song for Sid," and moved on from a relationship that had lasted five years.

Along for the ride is the bubbly over-eager bride-to-be, Hayley.

Burn Through Your Story | Writing and Performance Workshop with Minton Sparks

Presented by Scarritt Bennett Center at Scarritt Bennett Center

Every one of us has a story about who we are.  Some are wildly inspiring; other times, they are the very things that hold us back.  Minton believes that tremendous value lies in locating yourself within a particular time and place in history.  After all, many wonderful artistic pursuits are born out of autobiographies.  This workshop offers you an opportunity to better discover who you are through exploring and listening deeply to your own story.

During this 3-hour writing and performance workshop, you will focus on the questions “Where are you from?” and “How does where you are from inform the definition of who you are?”  while writing  your own stories, exploring your family tree, studying storytelling techniques and learning from Minton’s own work and experience.  Minton will then guide you through using your stories to create various poems, pictures and performances.

No writing or performance experience necessary.  Space is limited.  Please sign up by Friday, August 14, so we can get a final count of participants.

Presented by Soundstamp at Turn One (Bar & Grill)

Drunk & Sailor are Phillip McGuinness and Captain Amos. They met in 2005 as cast members of the Kentucky Renaissance Faire.

They have since been seen at renaissance festivals from the Gulf Coast to Lake Michigan, sci-fi/fan conventions including DragonCon, and more bars than they can remember (though that may have more to do with the alcohol than the number of bars).

Going to the Source: Family Poetry

Presented by The Porch Writers' Collective at The Skillery

Our families are inspirations and obstacles, sources of love and strife in our poetry. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, step-parents, in-laws, adopted siblings, honorary parents, live-in relatives, and loved ones separated from us by distances of space and time: they've filled our lives with stories and moments that have left deep impressions on us. We want to share those in our poems, but how? Sometimes what actually happened isn't right for the poem. Sometimes we don't want to reveal the truth because we're afraid of hurting someone. Sometimes our own feelings—loyalties and retributions—get in the way of our poems. 

In this workshop, we'll look to masters who have come before us, take permission from them, write together, then come together to discuss how to write our rough drafts into polished poems. We'll balance honoring both our families and our poems.

Gin Blossoms (Early Show)

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Taking their name from a caption on a W.C. Fields photo, Gin Blossoms signed a record deal with A&M and recorded their first EP “Up And Crumbling” in 1991. But, it was not until their breakout record “New Miserable Experience” in 1992 that their rise to fame began. “New Miserable Experience” kept the band on the charts for almost 3 years with singles “Hey Jealousy,” “Allison Road,” “Until I Fall Away,” “Mrs Rita,” and “Found Out About You.” The album took the airwaves by siege and held MTV hostage with multi cross-over hits in 4 different radio formats. It was this record that rocketed the band into the mainstream going on to sell over 4 million copies making the band a 90’s radio mainstay. In 1995, Robin Wilson, Jesse Valenzuela and veteran composer Marshall Crenshaw wrote the bands 4th of 9 sound track inclusions; “Til I Hear It From You.” The smash hit was released as a Gin Blossoms single and it appeared on the platinum sound track for the film Empire Records.

1996 saw the final record of the decade for Gin Blossoms “Congratulations I’m Sorry.” The album brought two more hits; "Follow You Down" which spent ten weeks in the Top Ten and "As Long As It Matters" which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Performance by a Duo or Group. “It was pretty cool to lose a Grammy to the Beatles. Who else would you want to lose out to” say’s Jesse. The album rocketed into Billboard's Top Ten and a year of touring helped push the record past 1,500,000 in sales. In 5 years, the band released 2 EP’s, two LP’s and over 12 singles that fueled record sales to over 7 million. Their blend of Pop & Rock, now known as Jangle-Pop, became a musical force that helped define the sound of 90’s radio

AT Pro presents Mary Poppins: The Musical

Presented by Act Too Players at The Franklin Theatre

Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Nashville Sunday Night | American Aquarium

Presented by 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill at 3rd and Lindsley Bar and Grill

Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.

Featuring: Amercian Aquarium

For nearly a decade, American Aquarium have spent the majority of their days on the road, burning through a sprawl of highways during the day and playing hours of raw, rootsy rock & roll at night. Sometimes, the job is a grind. Most times, it’s a blessing. American Aquarium’s songs, filled with biographical lyrics about last calls, lost love and long horizons, have always explored both sides of that divide. For every drunken night at the bar, there’s a hangover in the morning. For every new relationship, there’s the chance of a broken heart. It’s that kind of honesty — that sort of balance — that makes the band’s newest album, Wolves, their strongest release to date.

Presented by Nashville Public Library at Nashville Public Library - Main Library

Dav Pilkey has written and illustrated numerous popular, award-winning books for children, including the Captain Underpants and Dumb Bunniesseries; Dog Breath, winner of the California Young Reader Medal; and The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book.

He divides his time between Bainbridge Island and Minami Izu, Japan.

About Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot

There's something rotten in the state of Ohio, and it's smellier than a pile of putrid gym socks! Steer clear -- it's Sir Stinks-A-Lot! In # 12 in the Captain Underpants series, George and Harold, and their doubles, Yesterday George and Yesterday Harold, have a good thing going. Two of them go to school, while the other two hide in the tree house and play video games all day -- then they switch! But when their malicious gym teacher, Mr. Meaner, creates a method of mind-control that turns their fellow students into attentive, obedient, perfect children, the future of all humanity will be in their hands!

 



08/25/15

This salon is a free, ticketed event. A limited number of auditorium tickets will be available on-site 30 minutes before show time on the event date. Advance auditorium tickets are limited and guarantee a seat in the auditorium.

While it's hard to go wrong in any of these gritty watering holes, Legends stands out as one of the best. Country music record covers plaster the walls, but the real attraction is the bar's live music: Some of the city's finest contemporary acts make their mark onstage. The expanded drink menu and the cold beer keep regulars coming back. The Draw With one of the most prominent locations downtown (catty-corner from the Arena), Legends draws an equal mix of curious tourists and local barflies. While the dance floor seems to shrink a bit on weekends, don't be afraid to mosey on out and kick up your heels. Age Requirements: 21 years old after 6pm

Jesse Lee's goal is to bring the "Palace" back to the "Golden Era" of country music bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art form that was born in Bristol,Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville. The Nashville "Palace" presented by Robert's Western World is now back open with the musical integrity that everyone has come to expect and appreciate when visiting Robert's Western World.

Steep Canyon Rangers Record Release Show

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

When the time came for the Steep Canyon Rangers to record the follow-up to 2012’s Nobody Knows You, they headed north to Woodstock, NY, to Levon Helm’s famed studio with Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell and engineer Justin Guip. This was a departure for the band, and they gave Campbell full control over the recording rather than act as their own co-producer.

Over the months before they started to record Tell The Ones I Love, they sent him several dozen new songs to consider. And while the Steep Canyon Rangers were certainly open to recording songs by other composers, or to dip into traditional material, Campbell ultimately had them record all original tunes, based both on the strength of the songs and the band’s arrangements. This seems fitting for a band whose stellar reputation is based on performing original material, and who had just won the Best Bluegrass Album Grammy Award for Nobody Knows You. There’s a backstory here, too: last year, the band played Levon’s Midnight Ramble, and impressed Helm enough that he invited them to come back and record at the barn. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen before his untimely passing, but they still felt his joyful, creative spark and subtle influence while working in his studio.
