Langhorne Slim with Jill Andrews

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

The 13 songs that compose Langhorne Slim & The Law's new "The Way We Move" are road-tested, rollicking and very rock 'n' rolling tunes that the songwriter perfected with his loyal band, and come out of the kind of good times and bad experiences that songwriters of Langhorne's lofty stature can turn into life-affirming rock 'n' roll. You could also call what Langhorne Slim does folk music, but then there's his sly, charming and open-hearted feel for pop music -- those summertime melodies that nudge you into a grin even when the song is about something bad.

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.

Ashley Thomas, Sabrina Murdaugh

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

It's Black Friday - get away from the stores and enjoy a fresh craft beer at the brewery while listening to live music.

It wasn’t until she won a place as a semifinalist on American Idol that Ashley Thomas (6pm) decided to seriously pursue a career in music. “Being on the show was a great learning experience that taught me how much I wanted to be true to myself as an artist and write my own songs. It made me realize that I have something to sing about.” After Idol, Ashley began songwriting while assembling a band and touring, both regionally and abroad. One of the most memorable trips for her was a USO tour that took her to Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and Afghanistan. “I have performed for the most challenging audiences—from 30 million people on live TV to the hard-to-impress industry crowds in Nashville, but the most rewarding experience was playing for the troops. I’ve never had a more appreciative audience.” As she continued to hone her dynamic live act, Ashley worked even harder on her songwriting, knowing how vital that could be for her career. “I knew that in order to grow, I needed to immerse myself in an environment with the best songwriters out there, so I made the move to Nashville with no regrets.”

Drawing on her gospel roots, Sabrina Murdaugh (7pm) injects a soul-filled explosion into guitar driven melodies and emotive lyrics. After connecting with some folks in the industry, Sabrina recorded her debut CD “Angels Watching”. With contributions from musicians whose resumes include Paul Simon, Toto and India Arie among others, this polished project showcases Sabrina unique voice and strong lyrical acumen. An acoustic live recording “Simply: Vol I” was released three years later. Her newest cd "Bloom" is a studio project that projects the feel of a live performance. Using lyrical vignettes to explore the timeless themes of love and loss, you cannot help but feel the hope emanating from every note on the album.

Radney Foster with Derik Hultquist

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

“I’m always trying to find a little piece of the truth,” says Texas singer-songwriter Radney Foster. With Everything I Should Have Said, the truth is laid bare. His first collection of new songs in 5 years opens with “Whose Heart You Wreck,” a stormy lament to a fickle muse and closes with the title track, an unflinching apology for things done and left undone. “I wanted the album to have a band feel, and to do that I knew we needed to get away from schedules and cell phones.” They landed at Dockside Studios, a little pocket of soul alongside the Louisiana bayou. The space is the site of a long-forgotten brothel, and far from the sterile studios of Nashville.

Case in point, the album’s title track and closer, “Everything I Should Have Said,” which Foster calls the emotional centerpiece of the record. The song and performance are breathtakingly intimate, like he cracked his heart wide open for all to see, and yet somehow the sentiment is universal.

“I’ve gotten to an age where I feel like I don’t have anything to prove,” admits Foster. “And that’s very freeing when it comes to playing, singing and recording.”

Foster grew up in two worlds – herding cattle on horseback at his grandfather’s EastTexas ranch in the summers and hunkering over a transistor radio in West Texas hometown, listening to border radio. “My house in Del Rio was a mile from Mexico, so I heard everything growing up – from country to conjunto.” That hybrid of influences may be why Foster’s always been tough to categorize; his first success was with the seminal country/cowpunk duo Foster & Lloyd, whose first single, “Crazy Over You,” went straight to #1. His subsequent solo albums told tales through a honky tonk lens and yielded enduring hits “Just Call Me Lonesome” and “Nobody Wins.”

In the mid-90s, Foster went through another turning point. In the midst of a divorce, remarriage and custody crisis of his young son moving overseas, he gave up trying to please Country radio and recorded a CD that brought him to a whole other audience. “See What You Want To See changed the way I make records,” Foster muses. “It was such a tumultuous period in my life, but it made me realize that when you are that close to the bone honest, you make great music.”

“I think this is one of the most emotional records I’ve made since then.”

Throughout his 30 year career, Foster has continuously stretched the boundaries. “I strive to challenge myself as a writer, a musician and a singer everyday.” As his voice has deepened and grown richer, so, it seems, has his focus. These are the songs of a full-grown man, who long ago left fear by the side of the road.

The Dirty Guv'nahs with Cereus Bright

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

I don’t believe that things happen by chance… incredible things happen when people work hard, live humbly, and give credit where credit is due. You just gotta stay curious and dig in.”?– James Trimble, lead singer – The Dirty Guv’nahs
That sentiment rings true to the curious journey of Knoxville, Tennessee’s favorite sons, The Dirty Guv’nahs, who came together on a lark in 2006 to perform just a single show. That one, short, inauspicious set however, led to a series of extraordinary events—a life-changing path for these six UT, Knoxville grads—but still just the prologue to a story that continues to unfold.
The Dirty Guv’nahs new CD, Youth Is In Our Blood, produced by two-time Grammy-winner Justin Guip (Levon Helm, The Black Crowes) at Helm’s renowned barn/studio in Woodstock, NY is the follow-up to their eponymous 2009 debut. It is a hot, roiling stew of gritty, soul-influenced rock ‘n’ roll, mixed with a hefty helping of roots, funk, blues and country. It’s the sound that has earned them the distinction of being voted Knoxville’s Best Ban —three years in a row—by the readers of that city’s alternative weekly, Metro Pulse.

Will Hoge

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Will Hoge has made a career of writing and singing powerful songs about life's cruel and dark turns. Not long ago, he fell victim to one such turn.

As Hoge rode his scooter home from the studio, he was struck by an oncoming van that had veered into his lane. There were no skid marks. Launched off his bike, Hoge ended up bloodied, broken-boned, temporarily blinded, and near death.

"[The accident] was like stopping a record as it spins," says Hoge, who had been halfway through recording material for his new record before getting derailed. "It was like taking the needle and pushing it off the turntable."

For ten months, the accident sidelined Hoge. For ten months, it made him do something he hadn't done in 18 years: stop the music. Larger matters dominated his life, like physical recovery and the well-being of his family. "People would say, 'I bet you're ready to get back to playing and writing.' I'm thinking, 'Playing or singing is not the issue right now. I'm ready to get back to walking.'"

His previous album, Draw the Curtains, had been a unanimous high-water mark in his career, a magnificent collection of rock, country, soul, blues, and folk. With a great band, good vibes, and clear skies overhead, Hoge felt like he was building something real as a career artist.

Eight months after the incident he re-entered the studio in pursuit of that mission. He now has his health, an invigorated spirit, and a renewed sense of his musical journey. "Making The Wreckage opened me up in a different way," says Hoge. "I felt a calmness, a purpose. Right now it feels like I'm getting to the core of what I want to do and why."

The Wreckage listens like a record with a purpose. Having stared down his own mortality, Hoge has now rediscovered the simple joys of making good music. "It's hard to explain, but I felt a certain serenity making this album," he says. "It doesn't come through in the songs, but the process has become easier, and I believe the songs flow with more confidence."

When Hoge's fans hear these songs, they'll feel that resolve too. The Wreckage both curses life's wrong turns and celebrates its triumphs. "I've always tried to make albums that have a good reason for every song, and for the sequence of those songs. On this album you get 40:18 of music, and hopefully you'll want to hear the whole thing start to finish."

The new album was crafted with a depth of sound and musicality that breaks new ground for Hoge. Rugged, pulsating rock fuels "Just Like Me." Spirited melody characterizes tunes like "Highway Wings" and "Even If It Breaks Your Heart." The gruff ghosts of the barroom return on Hoge's "Hard to Love," as does the searing country roots rock of "Long Gone." Ballads like "What Could I Do" and "The Wreckage" are rife with the sort of brooding melancholy you'd expect from a guy who has been to the edge and back. "'The Wreckage' is one of the favorite songs I've ever sung," Hoge admits. "I couldn't have sung this physically before the accident, because my voice just wasn't suited to how quiet it is."

"Even If It Breaks Your Heart," his paean to rock and roll as life's true calling, is another tune Hoge admires. "The minute we started recording it, it was one of those songs that drove itself. Everyone in the room understood the sentiment. There was magic in that moment you don't get very often."

Even though half of The Wreckage was written and most of it recorded after the crash, images of the episode are only discreetly woven into the fabric of the album, like streaks of red on a dark surface. That's because Hoge would rather leave those lines, words, and phrases to interpretation.

Released one year almost to the day of his accident, The Wreckage is not, song by song, a celebration of life. The sentiments are too dark, his lyrics too biting, his voice brimming with moodiness. Risen from the ashes of Hoge's own "wreckage," the recording is an incredible achievement, hands-down his best work to date. And that is as good a cause as any for real celebration.

"Turkey's Revenge" with The RB Morris Band

Presented by The Stone Fox at The Stone Fox

Shake off the tryptophan & get your groove on at this EARLY show with The RB MORRIS Band on Thanksgiving Weekend's SATURDAY NIGHT at the convenient and comfortable The Stone Fox on the West side.

More about RB Morris - http://www.RBMorris.com/

RB Morris is a singer-songwriter and poet from Knoxville, TN touring in support of his new “Rich Mountain Bound” album and his published collection of “The Mockingbird Poems”. If RB Morris sounds familiar, it may be because he has toured all over the US with John Prine who recently recorded RB's song “That's How Every Empire Falls” on the vinyl version of his Grammy-winning album “Fair & Square” - and also on a four-song EP Prine released under the same name. Marianne Faithfull has also recorded this song for her new “Horses And High Heels” CD released in 2011. RB released his own debut album “Take That Ride” on Prine's Oh Boy! Records, and his follow-up “Zeke And The Wheel” (Koch Records) was nominated for Americana Album of the Year by the American Association of Independent Merchandisers. He has also toured with Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, and been on various Americana compilation albums.

Among recent shows in Europe he was a featured performer at the London Institute in Paris at the symposium honoring William Burroughs, and one of only a couple of musicians who were asked to contribute essays to the accompanying anthology honoring Burroughs. RB has been described as a “cross between a rural Tom Waits and an urban Woody Guthrie”. He is a published poet and playwright and a renowned songwriter, recording artist, and performer. He was inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame in 2009.

It is a place for writers and performers to come together in an intimate environment with the common goal of hearing and creating great music.

Leslie Satcher

Presented by Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant - Franklin at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant (Franklin)

Leslie Satcher is a fifth generation Texan. The daughter of a strong hearted single mother and grand daughter of cotton sharecroppers and pioneers, she is no stranger to hard work and perseverance. Born where the Chisolm Trail and the Red River cross, Leslie grew up singing in the churches and schools of Paris, Texas along side her baby sister Jeannie Winn. In 1989, during a short trip to Nashville, a friend prompted Leslie to record her voice over the tracks of country standards at The Barbara Mandrell Museum. That was all it took! Just four weeks later she was crossing her beloved Red River in a $1,000 Chevrolet dragging a U-Haul trailer with an ironing board strapped to the back. If her story sounds like the beginning of a country song, it was. After several "day jobs" in "Music City", Leslie's talent as a songwriter was recognized by a friend from church, Guy Penrod of the Gaither Vocal Band, who encouraged her to show her work to friends Larry Strickland and Naomi Judd. It was Naomi who helped her hone her skills into a more commercial form. Today Leslie is known for her hauntingly beautiful voice along with her talent as a hit songwriter. "When God Fearing Women Get the Blues," recorded by Martina McBride, "Troubadour," recorded by George Strait (the title track off of his 2008 CMA Album of the Year) and Kelly Pickler's most recent single "Tough" are just a few of the songs she has written. Artists such as Randy Travis, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, George Jones, Gretchen Wilson, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Vince Gill, along dozens more have recorded her songs.

John Witherspoon

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube’s (Craig’s) outrageously funny, dog-catching dad in New Line Cinema’s smash urban trilogy Friday, Next Friday & Friday After Next, or as “Pops” on the long-running syndicated sitcom The Wayans Brothers…or as Spoon on NBC’s The Tracy Morgan Show. One thing’s for sure… once you’ve seen Witherspoon you completely understand why he has earned the reputation as one of America’s funniest dads. His scene-stealing roles in Boomerang, Little Nicky, House Party, Vampire in Brooklyn, and I’m Gonna Git You Sucka, made him one of the most memorable funny men in America. Not only does Witherspoon’s work span over four decades to include blockbuster movies, hit-television shows, commercials, and top-rated music videos, but he’s coined his own catch phrases…as in…"Bang!Bang!Bang!Bang!" and "You Gotta Co-ordinate!” The Orange County Register describes the comedian/actor as being in a class of his own. "Witherspoon is one of those performers who doesn't need a funny line to be funny. Just standing there in a truculent posture with a suspicious look, he is funny and enlivens every scene he's in." The Detroit-bred comic has proven that he is a Hollywood mainstay and continues to land coveted spots in some of America’s favorite movies and television shows. Witherspoon continues to tour around the country with his wildly popular stand-up show and recently launched The John Witherspoon Collection---a complete line of humorous greeting cards called Spoon Cards.

Shuitar Demonstration: Matt Glassmeyer

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

Matt Glassmeyer found a guitar on a rain-soaked junk pile in Miami in 1997. It didn't work as a guitar, so he began beating on it in porch jams. With additions, subtractions, and experimentation, his "shuitar" became the drum set for local band the Hamitups. Glassmeyer continues to enhance the instrument and has performed with it on his Meadownoise project, as well as with Lambchop and Charlie Worsham. He is now producing shuitars for other musicians, and the instrument has been heard on stage with the Gabe Dixon Band and the Wood Brothers. Takes place in the Museum’s Hall of Fame Rotunda.

Nashville Sunday Night | All Them Witches with Adia Victoria

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

Unexplained phenomena of all kinds can be attributed to magic. Music is among those marvels. When a group of unrelated individuals of different backgrounds gets together and locks into a sonic unity, there must be some sort of mysticism at work. That’s the only way to properly explain it. The members of Nashville’s All Them Witches would agree too. That energy even courses through their moniker, which unsurprisingly comes from Roman Polanski’s 1968 masterpiece Rosemary’s Baby.

“The name can be interpreted in many different ways,” explains singer and bassist Michael Parks, Jr. “It could be a person’s view on what the forces of good and evil are or even how we interact with each other as human beings. There’s a little bit of witchcraft in everybody’s life. Just waking up is pretty magical—you’re alive another day. In terms of the music, we’re so loose, and that’s where the magic comes from. There’s no controlling factor. We do exactly what comes naturally. We go in a room without any idea about what will happen, get in the groove, and it works. That’s supernatural.”

All Them Witches began conjuring up music together in 2012. Foregoing theater school to focus on songwriting, Parks traded New Mexico for Nashville at 19-years-old. The Shreveport, Louisiana native met drummer Robby Staebler while the two shared a shift at a “corporate hippie store”. Robby showed Parks some music he and guitarist Ben McLeod had written, and it inspired the singer to jam—which he adds, “I usually never do. It made sense though”.

Adding Robby’s longtime friend Allan Van Cleave to the fold on Fender Rhodes, All Them Witches cut their debut Our Mother Electricity. Almost immediately after, they began working on its follow-up 2013’s Lightning At The Door. Recorded live in a matter of days with producer and engineer Andy Putnam, the boys tapped into a distinct energy, mustering bluesy soul, Southern swagger, and thunderous hard rock all at once.

The first single “When God Comes Back” swings from a Delta-dipped groove into a striking riff juxtaposed with Parks’ transfixing delivery. It’s as hypnotic as it is heavy.

“Sometimes, I get visions, for lack of a better word, that lead to songs,” the frontman admits. “I’ll be doing a mundane task at work, walking somewhere in the woods, or driving, and I’ll get these narrative flashes in my head. Personal experiences play into those narratives. This song is about our egos coming to break us down and destroy everything. We try to govern each other and turn the only landscape we have to live in into a parking lot. There’s no room for anybody. So, when God comes back, he’s going to be really mad.”

Ultimately, everything comes back to that certain magic for All Them Witches. “Not to sound too much like hippie, but I hope everybody can ride our vibe,” Parks leaves off. “We’re very simple people doing something we really love. We have such a short amount of time on this earth. Everybody should be doing what they love. If there’s a message here, it’s that.”

Reba Headlines “Dawn Sears & Friends” Benefit Show For Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Research

Presented by Dawn Sears and Friends at Depot Square

 Reba Headlines “Dawn Sears & Friends” Nov. 30 Benefit Show

For Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Research

 

On The Bill: The Time Jumpers, Riders In The Sky, Olympian Scott Hamilton

 

 

NASHVILLE—October 13, 2014 -- Reba McEntire will headline a benefit concert at Depot Square in Gallatin, Tenn. on Sunday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m., to fund lung cancer research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

 

Organized by singer and lung-cancer patient Dawn Sears, the show will also feature performances by The Time Jumpers (of which Sears is a member) and Riders In The Sky.

 

Gold-winning Olympic figure skater Scott Hamilton, a cancer survivor himself, will emcee the event.

 

Vanderbilt physicians Leora Horn and Pierre Massion will speak briefly on goals and advances in cancer research.

“I am on a mission to help fund lung cancer research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center,” states Sears.  “A benefit concert is the best way I know how to do that.  It is my mission to bring more hope to those of us with lung cancer. I was diagnosed with lung cancer over a year ago and I now have a greater understanding of the daily battle and challenges that people with cancer of any kind face.”

McEntire—now known worldwide simply as “Reba”—has excelled (and been awarded for) every art form she sets her hand to: live performances, recording, movies, the Broadway stage and series television. 

 

The Time Jumpers is a four-time Grammy-nominated band, made up of professional touring and studio musicians.  Its specialty is classic country and Western swing.  The band’s regular Monday night performances at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville remain one of the hottest tickets in town and routinely attract some of the biggest names in entertainment.

 

Riders In The Sky, with their mixture of classic cowboy music and comedy skits, have won two Grammys for best musical album for children, had their own public radio show and provided music for the hit movie Toy Story 2.  They have recorded more than 30 albums.

 

Sears, a former recording artist for Warner Brothers Records and Decca Records and a longtime harmony singer in Vince Gill’s band, was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2013 and continues in treatment.

FKA Twigs

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

Crafting ethereal electronic R&B that evokes the heyday of Tricky and Massive Attack and the spare 2010s aesthetic ofthe xx, London's FKA Twigs is the project of Twigs, akaTahliah Barnett, a half-Jamaican native of Gloucestershire. Surrounded by farmland during her teens, she studied ballet and sang on tracks recorded at a studio in a Jamaican youth club. By the time she was 16, Twigs -- whose nickname comes from how loudly she can crack her bones -- began writing songs in earnest; though she moved to London to pursue a career as a dancer at 17, and appeared in videos for songs by Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Kylie Minogue, and Taio Cruz, among others, she soon realized she really wanted to be a professional musician. Along with working as a bartender, Twigs spent as much time in the studio as possible and ultimately self-released her self-titled EP in 2012 via Bandcamp. After changing her moniker to FKA Twigs at the request of another artist named Twigs, she returned with EP2, a striking set of songs featuring production fromKanye West collaborator Arca. Late that year, FKA Twigs was nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2014 prize (which Sam Smith ultimately won). EP2 was released in the U.S. in May 2014. A few months later, the more lavish-sounding single "Two Weeks" announced the arrival of FKA Twigs' simply named debut album, LP1. Alongside collaborations with Arca, Dev Hynes, Sampha, and Paul Epworth, the album also featured more production work by Barnett herself. LP1 was released in August 2014.

King Washington - Show @ The Basement

Presented by The Basement at The Basement

 Indie-folk rock ‘n’ roll band King Washington is embarking on their national fall tour, playing multiple dates on each coast and everywhere in between. With over 30 shows booked between September and November, and more to be announced for the winter, King Washington has “proved to be one of the best bands playing in L.A., and probably anywhere else for that matter” (CWGMagazine.com).

Drawing influence from a variety of artists and genres including Radiohead, Queen and bands of the British Invasion, King Washington was formed in 2005 by an 18-year-old Tyson Kelly (vocals/guitar) straight out of high school. With the addition of George Krikes (vocals/guitar) and Billy Lee (vocals/bass), King Washington became a staple in the Los Angeles music scene with the release of their debut EP Grenadine in 2009. The band released their first full-length album, The Gears, in 2012, which was fully fan-funded and produced by Ambrosia’s Joe Puerta. The next year, King Washington released The Overload and set out on extensive touring.

Having already completed seven tours this year alone, the band has played alongside giants such as Arctic Monkeys, Michael McDonald, Ambrosia, Peter Asher and Denny Laine. King Washington is gaining momentum fast, slated to play CMJ in October and weekly residencies in Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, and Rochester (MN) in November. “In an ideal world, King Washington would be topping the pop charts,” and it’s only a matter of time until they do so (7BitArcade.com).

A Johnnyswim Christmas

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Three Nights at the City Winery Nashville!

There are approximately 2,000 miles between Nashville and Los Angeles. Both cities are home to JOHNNYSWIM. However, the duo's music far transcends that distance. It's easy to understand why A Prairie Home Companion declared that Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez are "21st century troubadours." As JOHNNYSWIM, they embody the tradition of the well-traveled singer-songwriter while cultivating a modern style that's uniquely their own.

Heart Beats, the duo's debut for Big Picnic Records, is the culmination of years spent shaping what Vogue calls an "infectious sound." Of the 200-plus acts who performed at the 2013 Bonnaroo festival, only JOHNNYSWIM could naturally conjure elements of rock, blues, boleros, folk, and contemporary R&B in their music. With just a guitar and the scintillating contrast of their voices, the duo holds audiences spellbound. They are storytellers who create a sense of intimacy between them and the listener, whether performing on The Today Show, singing 333 feet underground in Tennessee's Cumberland Caverns, or illuminating the stage at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in London.

Howie Day with Anna Rose

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

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.”

I Am Unbeatable - Documenting and Celebrating Stories of Empowerment - Photographs by Donna Ferrato

Presented by Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery at Vanderbilt University - Fine Arts Gallery

Donna Ferrato’s groundbreaking documentary project, Living with the Enemy, serves as a context for framing her new campaign against domestic violence, I Am Unbeatable, which takes her social activism to a new level by focusing on survivors of domestic abuse. Through a storytelling partnership with acclaimed American journalist Alex Chadwick, best known for his work on National Public Radio, and Claudia Dowling, award-winning journalist for such publications as Life magazine, Time, and others, I Am Unbeatable is an exhibition, a grass-roots effort to support women who have escaped violent relationships, and a means to speak directly to young women and girls who have yet to declare themselves “unbeatable.”

Centro-matic Farewell Tour with Joey and Kelly from Glossary

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

The work’s the thing, the joy, the end in itself. Triumphant, defiant, sprawling, content but never complacent—Centro-matic’s latest album is yet another bold statement in the ongoing dialogue between these four musicians and their supporters. After 17 years, the band is still driven to mine new territories and make a beautiful racket together. Rock & roll veterans now, they know—as the title of their new album advises—to take pride in their long odds.

This championing of tireless underdog determination is a key element of the band’s hard-rocking 11th studio LP. “If there are entities telling you that you can’t do something,” singer-guitarist Will Johnson says, “that there’s no way something is gonna happen for you—take pride in your work and prove them wrong. If it’s worth it to you, you shouldn’t give it any less of a chance because of what someone else says.”

Through all the years of touring and making records, the members of Centro-matic are still thick as thieves. It’s something rare and beautiful considering how few bands who’ve been together this long have their original lineups intact. “It’s always been my hope that our connection and care for each other translates through our music, ” Johnson says. “It’s driven things since the beginning. Centro-matic is an excuse to keep hanging out and getting together as our lives unfold. We became adults together in this band, and it’s still exhilarating and rewarding to be in one another’s company.”

Thistle Thursdays- Stephen Kellogg & Friends

Presented by Thistle Stop Cafe at Thistle Stop Cafe

The Thistle Stop Café proudly hosts a monthly live music series called Thistle Thursdays . Launched in October 2013, these evenings feature an eclectic lineup of artists who curate the intimate performances. The Café serves no alcohol, our full menu and espresso / tea bar is available for everyone of all ages. Half of the proceeds from the ticket price benefits the women of Magdalene.

When Stephen Kellogg was growing up his musical interests were divided between his father's record collection, devoted to '70s singer/songwriters like Jim Croce and Cat Stevens, and his sister's rock & roll discs, dominated by hair metal acts like Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe. In a curious way, Kellogg's music represents a meeting point between these two styles, with songs that delve deep into the personal, but make room for a sense of fun, while the music, which is intelligent and intimate, is also full of passion and electricity. Stephen has played more than 1400 shows in the last decade and made a life he loves complete with a career he's proud of.

Citizenfour

Presented by Belcourt Theatre at Belcourt Theatre

In January 2013, documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she (and reporter Glenn Greenwald) flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes.

Watkins Senior Graphic Design Exhibition: Bottoms Up”

Presented by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film at Deavor

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents the Senior Graphic Design Exhibition “Bottoms Up,” featuring work by Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design degree candidates Ryan Arauza, Zie Campbell, Ross Denton, Matthew Erwin and Jessica Yohn.

The one-night-only portfolio showcase, which is free and open to the public, will introduce to the community “five local designers brewed to perfection.” On display will be print and multimedia projects in advertising, packaging, web design, branding, digital publishing and illustration.

Each graduating class of graphic designers at Watkins chooses a presentation theme for their group BFA show, and this year’s “Bottoms Up” concept was inspired by a conversation about the growing number of micro breweries in town. Prompted by Ross Denton, they each described what kind of brew they would be.

Vanderbilt Art History Lecture: Synchromism

Presented by Vanderbilt Department of History of Art at Vanderbilt University - Cohen Hall, Room 203

Visual arts scholar Michael Leja will discuss "Cubism in Bondage: Morgan Russell's Synchromism” when he delivers the Norman L. and Roselea J. Goldberg Lecture in Art History. Leja is a University of Pennsylvania professor of history of art and director of the program in visual studies.

He studies 19th and 20th century visual arts in various media, primarily from the United States. His work is interdisciplinary and strives to understand visual artifacts in relation to contemporary cultural, social, political and intellectual developments. Leja is especially interested in examining the interactions between works of art and particular audiences.

Synchromism was an art movement founded in the early 1910s by two American artists, Morgan Russell and Stanton Macdonald-Wright, who were living in Paris. With Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Russell created an avant-garde style of colorful abstract painting. Russell combined abstract shape and color in paintings in seeking a spiritual exaltation equivalent to that produced by music, with which he also experimented.

Leja is the author of Looking Askance: Skepticism and American Art from Eakins to Duchamp (2004), which won the Modernist Studies Association Book Prize in 2005. Leja was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008.

A reception in the Cohen atrium will follow Leja's lecture. The Goldberg Lecture, which is sponsored by the Department of History of Art, is free and open to the public. Limited parking is available in Lot 95 adjacent to Cohen Hall.

Each year for the past twenty years, The Last Minute Toy Store, a ministry of Sixty-First Avenue United Methodist Church of Nashville, has distributed free toys and other gifts to thousands of low-income children and youth who live in Davidson County.  Working in cooperation with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s “Toys for Tots” program and other local toy providers, the “Last Minute” Toy Store is for low-income families who did not pre-register to receive toys from those other providers earlier in the fall. In December of 2013, the Last Minute Toy Store served 4,973 children and youth from close to 1,600 families – distributing over 16,000 toys/gifts to go along with books, oranges, and candy canes given to each child.

The Blind Boys of Alabama Christmas Show

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Although the Blind Boys of Alabama have been singing gospel music for more than five decades, it's only recently that the group has had the benefit of a major record company behind it. Led by founding member Clarence Fountain, the group has also featured Eric McKinney, George Scott, Caleb Butler, Johnny Fields, Jimmy Carter, Joey Williams, Donald Dillion, and Aubrey Blount.

From their inception in the 1930s, when all were boys, the group's members turned their blindness into their chief selling point, and in fact, all members of the group except one are blind. They began singing when all were students at the Talladega Institute for the Deaf and Blind in Alabama, but didn't begin recording until 1948.

As a youth, Fountain heard the legendary Golden Gate Quartet on the radio; the early Five Blind Boys of Alabama took their musical cues from that group. The group began singing professionally as the Happy Land Jubilee Singers, and for years lived a day-to-day, dollar-to-dollar existence touring the South.

102.9 The Buzz's Swanky Sweater Party with Bush, Royal Blood, and Meg Meyers

Presented by War Memorial Auditorium at War Memorial Auditorium

Gavin Rossdale is good at giving directions: “The only way out is through,” he sings, pointedly, in the first single from Bush’s new album.

This is far from the only time on the band’s sixth release, Man on the Run, that you’ll hear him weighing in with tough-minded sentiments that seem alternately confrontational, compassionate and cautionary.Amid the sense of wonder that pervades Man on the Run is also a distinct warning that survival does not come easy. Surveying the record’s themes, Rossdale puts it this way: “It’s a magical time, but you need a crash helmet. You can fix everything but your head.”

Of course, any time Rossdale seems to be giving advice, there is a “physician, heal thyself” aspect to what he’s talking about. When, at one point on the new album, he sings “Get your center back to wherever it should be,” you can rest assured that’s counsel that he’s already taken, when he picked up the Bush banner again a few years ago after having left it alone for the better part of a decade to pursue a solo career. Fans were receptive to the directions he pursued in the interim, but what they really wanted was to have a chance to welcome back the group that had gone six-times-platinum with their debut album, 1994’s Sixteen Stone. The return of Bush with The Sea of Memories in 2011 found an audience eager for that return to one of rock’s most distinctive signature sounds, as their comeback single (“The Sound of Winter”) reached the top of Billboard’s rock and alternative charts.

R. Kelly

Presented by Nashville Municipal Auditorium at Nashville Municipal Auditorium

As a songwriter, R. Kelly revisits simple, but profound aspects of the human experience – love, lust, desire, joy and pain that define classical art and drama. He applies his concept to rich, full vocals that exude his intended effect. This precise craftsmanship led to a 2006 Stevie Wonder Award for Outstanding Achievements in Song Writing at the Soul Train Awards.

It is this uncanny ability to compose classics and deliver electrifying live performances that define everything that is essential R. Kelly. It’s why he is the recipient of multiple Billboard, BMI and American Music Awards. A prolific artist, he churns out albums on a yearly basis from his Chocolate Factory studios in the heart of Chicago, drawing from the spirit of his musical forefathers Curtis Mayfield and Donnie Hathaway. While, R. Kelly proudly hails from the so-called Second City, with his boundless talent, he is second to none.

Billy Joe Shaver with Ryan Cullwell

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

Billy Joe Shaver has never been a household name, but his songs became country standards during the '70s and his reputation among musicians and critics has remained legendary throughout the ensuing decades.

All Music Guide lists 23 albums, from 1973’s Old Five & Dimers Like Me through 2007’s Everybody’s Brother. Among his many classic songs are “I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be a Diamond Some Day),” “Honky Tonk Heroes,” “Georgia on a Fast Train,” “Live Forever,” “Tramp on Your Street,” and “Try and Try Again.” In 1999, Shaver was invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2005, Billy Joe Shaver performed on CMT Outlaws. In 2006, he was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.

He recently served as spiritual advisor to Texas independent gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman and his 2007 album Everybody’s Brother was nominated for a GRAMMY. For his efforts, the Americana Music Association awarded him their Lifetime Achievement Award in Songwriting. Shaver is truly one of the most respected living figures in American music. His songs have been cut by Elvis, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and many others. Bob Dylan, who rarely covers other writers, often plays Billy Joe‘s “Old Five And Dimers Like Me” in concert and Johnny Cash called him “my favorite songwriter.” The Washington Post noted, “when the country outlaws were collecting their holy writings, Billy Joe Shaver was carving out Exodus.” www.billyjoeshaver.com

Jackopierce

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

In 1988, Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce, the "Jack O" and "Pierce" who make up the seminal acoustic duo, Jackopierce, were playing cover songs in a dingy club with a crummy PA in their hometown of Dallas, Texas. In a moment of young-musician desperation, they whipped up a tune on the spot called "Three of Us In A Boat" to elongate their set. That became a signature track for a decade-long career wherein the two-piece sold 500,000 records over six albums (two for major label A&M) and toured three continents, nine countries, and 44 states. After a five-year breakup, in 2002 the duo reconvened as Jackopierce. Today Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce have a renewed creative vigor, mutual respect, and deep gratitude for their Jackopierce heritage. These good vibes shine through on JP's euphoric new album, Everywhere

The 61st Annual Nashville Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting

Presented by Piedmont Natural Gas at Downtown Nashville

Television and film actor Eric Close, who plays Mayor Teddy Conrad on ABC’s hit television show “Nashville,” will serve as Parade Grand Marshal for the 61st annual Piedmont Natural Gas Nashville Christmas Parade. The parade kicks off the holiday season in downtown Nashville on Friday, Dec. 5, 2014 at 7 p.m.

This year’s Piedmont Natural Gas Nashville Christmas Parade theme is “Sharing the Warmth,” spotlighting the importance of the help Piedmont and our participating warm-hearted customers provide to those in need. Tying into the theme, parade visitors will have an opportunity to share the warmth of the holidays with those less fortunate. 

Piedmont is asking parade-goers to give to those in need by donating a pair of new or gently used shoes and gently used coats to local nonprofits, Soles4Souls and Clothes4Souls. There will be drop-off locations at Public Square Plaza and along Second Avenue near the corner of Hard Rock Café. Visitors will also have the opportunity to sign up for Piedmont’s Share the Warmth program.

This year’s night of festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree in Public Square Plaza in Downtown Nashville. Eric Close, Piedmont Natural Gas executives and other special guests, will join Mayor Karl Dean. The tree lighting will be immediately followed with fireworks. The parade begins at 7 p.m. at Public Square Plaza and travels down Second Ave. and up Broadway to Ninth Avenue.

Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Presents: Deck the Hall Holiday Concert: Gene Watson

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

Considered one of the finest pure-country singers of his generation Gene Watson offers up one of the best traditional country shows in the business. Watson will share some songs of the season with this performance as part of the museum's annual Deck the Hall festivities.

This masterful country stylist from Houston, Texas has been thrilling audiences for more than 50 years. Gene’s very first radio single, the self-penned “If It’s That Easy” was released in 1962 so the entertainer is celebrating his 50 Years in the music business, a “Golden Anniversary” in 2012.  Although the song didn’t make any radio charts, it did start the career of the man now known as “The Singer’s Singer.” Gene Watson’s tally of 75 charted titles, 23 top-10 hits and 6 number-one records has led to membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Radio listeners are still transfixed whenever classics like “Farewell Party,” “Fourteen Carat Mind” or “Love in the Hot Afternoon” are played. The depth of emotion in his singing, his brilliant phrasing, his jaw-dropping range and the power in the lyrics he chooses are all factors in the awe he inspires in both fans and his musical peers.

Film Screening: Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound (2014)

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

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum hosts the Southeast Premiere of the critically acclaimed documentary film Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound in the museum’s Ford Theater. The director, William J Saunders, a grandson of Mize, will be there to introduce the film and field questions afterward. This special screening accompanies the Bakersfield Sound exhibit’s final month in its two year run at the museum.Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June 2014 where it received great critical acclaim. 

Nashville’s dominance in country music wasn’t always certain. This film explains how the powerful country music scene in 1950s Bakersfield and Los Angeles tried to shift the industry westward. Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and the lesser known Billy Mize, were among those responsible for the rebellion.

Featuring interviews with MERLE HAGGARD, WILLIE NELSON, RAY PRICE, and BILLY MIZE himself, the film delves into the tragic personal history of an exceptional performer, while exploring the music scene he helped to build. His little-known story is brought to life with exquisite archival footage, rare photos, and a soundtrack highlighting the exhilarating Bakersfield Sound that forever changed the industry. While Mize never achieved lasting stardom, his charm and golden voice are legendary among his peers and country music aficionados. As a performer on the brink of fame, his is a spectacular tale about identity and sacrifice amidst a California country music revolution.

In I Is An Other, Head explores concepts of identity, sexuality, and death in a hospital­like installation consisting of video, sculpture and photography. Head is interested in “the detachment we have at birth when we are literally severed from our mothers and how that shapes our struggle with selfhood in our attempt to connect with others. Sexuality drives that endeavour, however, never fully able to satisfy the separation.” Through scale, proximity, and material, Head brings awareness to our detachment and mortality.

The exhibition is free and the public is invited; the December 6 show is part of Nashville’s First Saturday Art Crawl slate. The Packing Plant, curated by Watkins alumna Ann Catherine Carter, is located at 507 Hagan Street in the Wedgewood/Houston Arts District. For more information, visit Watkins.edu or thepackingplant.net or call 615-383-4848.

An alumnus of Brentwood Academy, Head claimed first prize in Watkins’ 2014 Currey Juried Student Show for his photograph “Astronomy” and was a finalist in the Nashville Scene’s 2013 Photography contest, with two of his images recognized. His work has been exhibited locally at Chromatics and at Track One. To see more of his work, visit holden-head.squarespace.com.

WAG's December show: Luisiana Mera and Jazzmyne Sims

Presented by WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery) at WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery)

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents a double exhibition at its downtown gallery WAG during the December 6 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl, with new work from junior Luisiana Mera and senior Jazzmyne Sims.

Fine Art major Luisiana Mera’s "Relevant Distance" features delicately rendered charcoal drawings based on images sent to Mera via iPhone from relatives in her native Panama. Through exquisite technique, dramatic lighting and gridded and cropped theatrical spaces, Mera reframes baroque pictorial conventions to deploy a personal and contemporary narrative, creating work that is tactile, velvety and dreamlike. “We experience the world largely through today’s technologies, images that are edited and composed by others on screens and in print. What can be lost is the pre-edited, individual, personal experience,” said Mera. “The sensual quality of the charcoal medium makes it possible to convey an immediate physical experience from these detached images.”

Jazzmyne Sims, studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Art, offers pop up wood sculptures in her show, "The Capricious Bend." Tension, mobility and reconstruction play very heavily in these works of Baltic birch, cherry and cedar. “Since the structures of my sculptures are constructed by the tension of the wood being bent, I tend to use little to no hardware, with the exception of clamps,” said Sims. “The installation of my work is also dependent on, and responsive to, the surrounding architecture. With the use of clamps the work is mobile and can easily be reconstructed and turned into some other structure.”

WAG–an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery–is located in suite 77 upstairs in the historic Arcade and is open the first Saturday evening of the month during each Art Crawl (from 6-9 p.m.), and by appointment.

WAG joins approximately 20 participating Art Crawl galleries along Fifth Avenue of the Arts and upstairs in the Historic Arcade. Admission is free, and the Nashville Downtown Partnership provides two free shuttles traveling among the venues. For more information on the First Saturday Art Crawl, visit nashvilledowntown.com/play/first-saturday-art-crawl.

About Luisiana Mera
Born and raised in Panama City, Panama, Luisiana Mera moved to Nashville in 2011 to attend Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, where she is a Fine Art major with an emphasis in painting, drawing and figurative studies. Her work has been exhibited extensively on campus and at Cheekwood, Cummins Station and WAG (Watkins Arcade Gallery). She has won multiple awards including the Robb Swaney Prize for Excellence in Visual Expression and first place at the Currey Juried Student Exhibition; recently her work was selected for inclusion in INDA 9 (9th International Drawing Annual), a competitive publication of works of contemporary drawing. Visit luisianamera.tumblr.com.

About Jazzmyne Sims
A Tennessee native, Jazzmyne Sims is a senior at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Art with a concentration in sculpture. She is heavily focused on woodworking, using clamps, tension and, in many sculptures, architecture to create her work, which she describes as “very in the moment and set type based.” She holds several scholarships (including the BA achievement award). She has recently ventured into furniture design where she is incorporating her sculpture style with other mediums.

About WAG
The Watkins Arcade Gallery–WAG–is a public exhibition space of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film committed to serving the College community and the community at large through exhibitions and programs that enhance curriculum as well as engage a greater audience in the visual arts. WAG is dedicated to supporting the educational and cultural mission of the College by encouraging students to think independently and creatively about their art practice and role as critical thinkers within the cultural landscape. The venue will present shows year-round featuring work by Watkins students, alumni and other professional artists. For inquiries, contact WAG@watkins.edu.

Three Women & The Truth: Mary Gauthier, Gretchen Peters, and Eliza Gilkyson

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Three Women and The Truth is a trio of accomplished, richly talented, multiple award winning female songwriters, whose songs cut through the murky layers of life's complexities and bring clarity to many of the challenges we all long to make sense of. Writing from their life's experience, these songwriters are skilled in balancing personal tales with classic underpinnings, which hint at the evocative idea that all our lives are full of events and incidents that touch on the mythic and the timeless. 

Eliza Gilkyson is a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and activist who has become one of the most respected musicians in Roots, Folk and Americana circles. She has released 19 recordings of her own, and her songs have been covered by such notables as Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash.  She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, Etown, XM Radio, and on Air America Radio. Mary Gauthier is a singer songwriter who the Associated Press named one of the best songwriters of her generation. She’s been praised by both Dylan and Waits, and has had her songs recorded by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Candi Staton. She was awarded New Artist of the year by The Americana Music Association in 2005, and has released six studio albums. Twice Grammy-nominated and CMA Song Of The Year winner for the groundbreaking Independence Day (Martina McBride), Gretchen Peters has cut her own artistic path, touring continually in both North America and the UK and Europe, and releasing nine critically acclaimed albums on the way.

LUMINOUS: Music, Dance, Impact

Presented by KAIO Productions at Marathon Music Works

 On Friday, December 5th 2014, the local Nashville creative community and KAIO Productions with special guests Kate Voegel, Cardboard Kids, and Seryn are hosting an interactive concert and dance event called LUMINOUS. This event will benefit the education of 500 students in Invisible Children’s Legacy Scholarship Program in Northern Uganda.

Over the past decade nearly 2,000 young people have gone through Invisible Children’s Legacy Scholarship program. Many of which are girls, in a country where statistically 1% of women ever graduate university. The San Diego based non-profit has asked for help this Fall in hosting events across the country to support fundraising efforts to ensure the 500 current students are funded through to the end of their university education in Northern Uganda.

LUMINOUS is a dynamic, 21+, one night event fusing all of the things that make Nashville so unique -- community, artistry, music and experience. We are incorporating dance and elevating the experience level of typical events. KAIO Productions is curating the event, working directly with Invisible Children to raise $50,000.

Romulus Hunt

Presented by Nashville Opera Association at The Noah Liff Opera Center

Just say the name Carly Simon and beloved songs such as “That’s the way I’ve always heard it should be” and “You’re so vain” immediately spring to mind.   In 1993, Carly Simon took her gift of melody and her fearless examination of love and relationships, and created this opera, Romulus Hunt.  At the time of the opera’s premiere, it was heralded as “one of the most important American operas since Porgy and Bess”.   We invite you to join Nashville Opera as Carly Simon takes us on the poignant and heartfelt journey of a loving, yet fractured family as they search for healing, reconciliation and redemption.

Sung in English with easy-to-read projected English supertitles.

Jon Lovitz

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 For the last twenty years, Jon Lovitz has been one of the best known comedians in the universe…well, according to his cats. For the first ten years of his career, he did plays in high school, earned a B.A. in Drama at the University of California, Irvine and studied acting with Tony Barr at the Film Actors Workshop. After an unfruitful year in New York, he returned to Los Angeles and at the advice of Tony Barr, he began concentrating solely on comedy. He began taking classes at the famous improve comedy group, “The Groundlings” in 1982. A year later, after being accepted into “The Sunday Company”, Jon got his first job as an actor for two weeks on the television show “The Paper Chase: the Second Year”. Thinking he was on his way, he promptly quit his job at the clothing store…and became a messenger. The next three years – nothing!!! Then, in September of 1984, he was accepted into the main company at the Groundlings. On March 28, 1985 the Groundlings appeared on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson”. It was here Jon premiered his character “Tommy Flanagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous”. This kicked off a series of events, including getting an agent, a movie (“Last Resort”) and a series (“Foley Square”) on the same day, a voice over for a cartoon (“The Brave Little Toaster”) and the big break of his career (with the recommendations of Larraine Newman and Charles Grodin) “Saturday Night Live”…all this by September of 1985. He has not stopped working since. He was nominated for an Emmy his first two years on Saturday Night Live. He became known for many characters, including “Tommy Flanagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous” (“Yeah, that’s the ticket!”), “Master Thespian”, “Hannukuh Harry” and “the Devil”. He has appeared in over thirty movies, including “Big”, “A League of Their Own”, “The Wedding Singer”, “High School High”, “Small Time Crooks”, and “Rat Race”.

Nashville Sunday NIght | Sugar & the Hi-Lows w/ special guest Sam Palladio

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

Sugar & The Hi Lows know that popular music isn’t a mirror, that melodies and lyrics aren’t tethered to the cultural landscapes of their day. Breathing a new sound into music with an old soul, this rootsy, vintage duo reminds us why we dance, especially in the midst of hard times.

Music has always had the power to buoy spirits and wash communal hardships into the background. When Judy Garland clicked her sparkling heels together and sang of a place “Over the Rainbow,” for example, the rest of the nation was still reeling from the Great Depression. And though decades have come and gone, music has never lost that power.

Ringing in their new sound, Sugar & The Hi Lows are bringing back the era of feel good music, the days when one take was enough and an auto-tune was a thing you did to your ’55 Chevy. Brought to life by experienced songwriter/performers Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup, Sugar & The Hi Lows is a bit of a nostalgic love offering.

Growing up in Mississippi under the sway of Memphis blues, Dabbs was raised to the soundtrack of Motown, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. “My father used to make blanket statements like, ‘It’s not good if you can’t dance to it,’” he remembers. And though he wasn’t into his father’s sonic selection at the time, he says that style of music has come to evoke a feeling he can’t get anywhere else.

“The older I got, I realized how that was kind of seeping into what I loved musically, and it just brings this joy, it brings this happiness,” Dabbs says. “With the climate of everything right now – with the economy – you could write the most depressing songs ever, but I really feel like the world needs light; the world needs lighthearted.”

Dabbs and Stroup are certainly no strangers to pop culture. Both mainstays in Nashville’s singer-songwriter scene, the two have heard dozens of their songs spinning behind hit shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Parenthood, Private Practice, So You Think You Can Dance, Pretty Little Liars and more. Dabbs’ music has been touted by Taylor Swift, and Stroup was named one of the Top 20 Songwriters Under 30 by A Prairie Home Companion. Though fully at home in their niche, the two still chose to step away from their self-described “heavy mellow” sound to pursue something with a bit more swing in its step. The happy-go-lucky numbers that evolved into Sugar & The Hi Lows first began to take shape when Dabbs purchased a vintage box amp and sat down in his basement for a regular co-write with Stroup. “We got to talking about his dad and throwback music from the ‘50s and ‘60s and just like, ‘Why isn’t there that type of music now?’” Stroup recalls. That day, their song “This Can’t Be the Last Time” came in less than two hours. A newfound creative freedom had been tapped, and the next seven tracks for the project fell quickly into place. “We weren’t really trying to treat it like a band,” Stroup explains. “We just wrote this series of songs, but they didn’t feel like an Amy Stroup song or an Amy and Trent duet.”

2014 Tennessee Local Food Summit

Presented by Vanderbilt University at Vanderbilt Student Recreation Center

“Barefoot Farmer” Jeff Poppen, host of Nashville Public Television’s long-running program Volunteer Gardener and one of the nation’s leading authorities on organic farming, will join a host of national experts on organic farming and nutrition, including award-winning local chefs, for a series of workshops and cooking demonstrations at the 2014 Tennessee Local Food Summit Dec. 5, 6 and 7 at Vanderbilt University.

The three-day event kicks off with dinner and music on the grounds of Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory, followed by workshops at the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center, a concert and dinner at The University Club of Nashville, and on-site workshops at Bells Bend Neighborhood Farms.

The community event is being hosted by Health Plus, a division of Vanderbilt Health and Wellness, which houses three nationally recognized programs that provide support for the health and productivity of university employees as well as people throughout the Middle Tennessee region.

Registration for the summit and more information about this year’s speakers and workshops is available online at TNLocalFoodSummit. Space is limited, so early registration is strongly encouraged.

The Farm to Table movement has received growing national attention in recent decades as consumers have become more aware of the health, nutritional and local economic benefits of buying direct from local farms. Even larger, more established food service companies and grocery store chains are now offering their customers more fresh, locally grown produce and farm products.

This year’s event will feature experts and chefs speaking on a wide range of topics, from backyard gardening, organic agriculture, rural economies and nutrition to cooking and climate change.

Steve M. Johnson, medical director of Evergreen Medical Centre in Louisville, Kentucky. Johnson is a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine with a special focus on the connection of rational spiritual medicine to health.

Hugh Williams, an organic and biodynamic farmer for more than 40 years. Williams is an expert orchardist who is widely respected for his experience running successful fruit businesses and a self-contained farm.

John Ikerd, professor of agriculture and applied economics at the University of Missouri. Ikerd is an expert on sustainability, agriculture and economics and how the three are related.

Mark Bader, owner of Free Choice Enterprises. With expertise in ruminants and grazing concerns, Bader travels the world advising livestock owners on pasture-performance issues.

Richard McDonald, also known as “Dr. Bug,” is a leading expert in organic pest management. He works as the biological control administrator and state apiarist for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.

Hugh Lovell, an author and expert on the origins and development of biodynamic farming, soil health and sustainable agriculture.

Susana Lein, who will speak on permaculture.

This year’s summit also will feature live cooking demonstrations by these local award- winning chefs:

Tyler Brown, executive chef of Nashville’s Capitol Grille;

Sean Brock, executive chef of Husk restaurant; and

Sandor Katz, author of Art of Fermentation.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra: Christmas Rocks Extravaganza!

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy® Award-winner Brian Setzer, returns with their Christmas Rocks Extravaganza! Tour and will play the Ryman on Monday, December 8. With a career spanning more than 30 years, Setzer has smash hits as founder/leader of The Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra and as a solo artist. His December concert will include Setzer’s legendary guitar magic on hits such as “Rock This Town,” “(She’s) Sexy +17,” “Stray Cat Strut,” and “Jump, Jive and Wail” and lots more, as well as his re-imagined and acclaimed Holiday classics.

Brian Setzer is a "Musician's Musician" credited with consistently taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80's and swing in the '90's). 

Setzer found tremendous success in redefining Christmas music for a generation desperately desiring something new and exciting around the holidays. The result was three best-selling holiday albums (Boogie Woogie Christmas, Dig That Crazy Christmas, Christmas Rocks!: The Best Of Collection) and an annual Christmas tour that has certainly become the most exciting annual rockin' Christmas event on the planet. The Los Angeles Times calls it a show "whose sheer joy is irresistible!”

The Time Jumpers

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

The TIME JUMPERS are an award winning Western Swing band from Nashville, Tennessee, with two awards from the Association of Western Artists, one from the Western Music Association and two Grammy nominations! This group of Nashville's studio elite has evolved from casual jam sessions at the Grand Ole Opry to performing on the main stage, and becoming THE Monday night destination in Nashville. Their individual recording and performing credits cover virtually the entire history of country music, ranging from Slim Whitman to Carrie Underwood, and their members have recorded extensively with artists in other genres as well, from Barbra Streisand to Megadeth. Their combination of tight arrangements, soulful singers, brilliant soloists, and an irresistibly swinging rhythm section have packed their weekly performances at Nashville's legendary Station Inn for close to ten years, drawing not only their peers, such as fellow recording musicians Glen Worf, Brent Mason, Reggie Young, Bob Moore and countless others, but an amazingly diverse array of stars, including Jimmy Dean, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jimmy Buffet, Reba McEntire, Robert Plant, BJ Thomas, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Luna Halo, Norah Jones, John Rich, Robben Ford, Ronnie Dunn, Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap and Kelly Clarkson. The list goes on and on!

Pauly Shore

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

 Pauly Shore is seared into the public consciousness for his attention- grabbing comedic talents, and his meteoric rise to notoriety in the 1990’s with starring roles in popular film comedies, acting-up as MTV “VJ” and show host, and performing his stand-up at national comedy clubs, including legendary venue The Comedy Store – where Pauly continues to work and perform. An entertainment career was virtually pre-ordained for Pauly Montgomery Shore. At age 4, he sat on the lap of The King himself in the company of his father, comedian Sammy Shore, who opened for Elvis during the early ’70s. Around the same time, Pauly’s mother, Mitzi, and father opened The Comedy Store on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, giving their son the rare opportunity to hang out and be inspired by such rising talents as Robin Williams, David Letterman and the late Sam Kinison, who became Pauly’s mentor. At 17, Pauly began writing and performing his own material, creating the persona of “The Weizel,” a character that quickly appealed to young audiences. In 1990, Pauly caught the attention of MTV and the network gave him his own show, TOTALLY PAULY. His initial success on television led to a three movie deal with Disney, beginning with the box-office hit ENCINO MAN, co-starring Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser. Pauly followed up ENCINO MAN with the popular comedies SON-IN-LAW, IN THE ARMY NOW, JURY DUTY and BIO-DOME. In 2003, Pauly produced, wrote, directed and starred in the critically acclaimed, PAULY SHORE IS DEAD, a semi-autobiographical mockumentary in which he satirizes the perils of Hollywood. In the film, Pauly loses everything and decides to fake his death in a quest for post- mortem adulation. He called in a lot of favors to get the project made and managed to wrangle star cameos from the likes of Sean Penn, Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Dr. Dre, Clint Howard, Perry Farrell, Fred Durst, Verne Troyer, Andy Dick, Mark McGrath, Jerry Springer, Montel Williams, Sally Jessy Raphael, Kurt Loder and Paris Hilton, to name a few. Next, Pauly returned to TV in the TBS reality series, MINDING THE STORE, which he produced as well as starred in. This was followed by a notable recurring part, as himself, on the hit HBO series, ENTOURAGE. In 2008, Pauly once again stepped into producer, director and star roles with the sketch comedy movie NATURAL BORN KOMICS, for which Pauly received the 2008 Entertainer of the Year Award from the Entertainment Merchants Association. Pauly continues to produce and direct, with his latest feature the critically-acclaimed Adopted, which was released in 2010. In the film, Pauly satirizes the phenomenon of celebrity adoptions as he travels to Africa to adopt an African baby. Pauly’s latest project, the 90-minute comedy variety special, VEGAS IS MY OYSTER which Pauly wrote, produced and directed – airs this fall on Showtime, and includes talent such as Andy Dick, Charlene Yi, Bobby Lee, Amber Lancaster, and Playboy model and adult film star Bree Olson. Pauly also continues to tour the world with his stand-up comedy, and has several short subject films and multiple projects in the works, such as his MTV pilot called “The Shores” and various projects with Will Farrell’s website FUNNY or DIE .

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 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

John Hiatt

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Two nights at the City Winery Nashville! John Hiatt, who the Los Angeles Times calls “...one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” will release his new album Terms Of My Surrender, on July 15, 2014 via New West Records. Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. The new record is musically rooted in acoustic blues, accentuated by Hiatt’s soulful, gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.

Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash (#1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s film, The Country Bears. He earned a Grammy nomination for Crossing Muddy Waters, while B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. Hiatt has received his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was saluted at the Indiana Governor’s Arts Awards.

ARTIST INFO
Director and cinematographer Jeremy Adams (coroflot.com/jeradams) lives and works in Los Angeles. A 2003 graduate of the Film School at Watkins, he has worked in a variety of roles in film/video production, ranging from art department assistant on ABC's "Pushing Daises" to storyboarding acclaimed music video director Joseph Kahn's second feature film, "Detention." Jeremy has directed and photographed documentaries, commercials, music videos, short films and a feature film. In 2012, he directed an award-winning spot for Marine Corps Special Operations Command/MARSOC and in 2013, shot and edited the webisode "You Ought To Know Nashville" for PBS Digital.

• Grid of 9 (3 across, 3 down), archival digital prints, iPhone photography, 12x20

“I have always viewed the ordinary world in cinematic widescreen. For the longest time I tried to develop a photographic style to reflect this, without any real success, but having an iPhone in my pocket at all times and taking pictures on a phone just for the hell of it has allowed themes of simplicity and space to emerge, one photo after another. My eye is now naturally drawn to unique, natural landscapes that sometimes feature inhabitants. Most times though, the landscapes themselves are characters in their own right that tell a story without ever saying a word. It's this aspect that attracts me the most, especially in this modern and ever-complicating world where we are constantly bombarded with information.”

A Middle Tennessee native, Chris Doubler received his BFA in Fine Art from Watkins in 2006. Since that time he has applied his skills and education to become an exhibition designer, preparator, graphic designer and art handler at institutions including Cheekwood Museum & Botanical Gardens, The Frist Center for the Visual Arts, and The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

• Silkcreen print on paper (approx 16"x19")

Patricia Earnhardt (patriciaearnhardt.com) is a multimedia visual artist working primarily with video and installation art. Her work, which focuses on social and political issues as well as personal internal struggles, has been exhibited in Berlin, Germany and in numerous venues in Nashville. She graduated from Watkins in 2008 with a BFA in fine Art. She is also a filmmaker and, for the past 20 years, has run Earnhardt Films, LLC with her husband, David Earnhardt.

• Digital video, “Accepted” (2:36, looping)

“In the video, ‘Accepted,’ soft, ripe fruit falls onto the back of a woman reclining peacefully in a field. The fruit splays as it hits the quiet and unflinching body -- flesh meeting flesh. The image depicts an acceptance of nature and its effects on the body over time, showing the beauty in aging -- something that is often considered grotesque.”

Pam Jolly Haile processes ideas of space and place using a variety of visual languages, including painting, sculpture, installation and photography. Her focus on nature’s benevolence and the experiences it provides is the thread she follows, weaving abstract ideas and theory into her art practice. She earned her BFA in Fine Art from Watkins in 2013 and currently lives and works in Nashville.

• Archival UV direct print on dibond substrate (20"x15")

“There is a seamless rapport between my everyday life and art making. The work I create is a recording of my ordinary experiences. I aim to engage the audience with sensory and poetic qualities in works that question what it means to consciously observe, and therefore wholly experience being human.”

Joshua Brent Montgomery (joshuabrentmontgomery.com) is an artist from Goodlettsville, TN. A 2008 graduate of the Film School at Watkins, he works as a casting associate in the entertainment industry and spends his free time writing and drawing.

• Three acrylic on canvas: “Boy in Snow” (24”x36”), “Scared Boy in Field” (18”x24”), “Shine” (36"x36")

“My work is culled from a wide variety of personal interests and curiosities, none of which share a locus worth mentioning.”

Alethea Norene holds a BFA in Photography in 2008 from Watkins and MFA in 2010 from Maine College of Art in Portland. She has exhibited her work nationally in solo and group exhibitions and alternative venues such as clothing boutiques. Co-founder of SOUP, a community based micro-grant program for artists in Portland, Alethea is currently expanding her creative practice and is in school in Nashville to become a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, hoping to utilize her creative experiences to positively empower women.

• Archival pigment print from digital scan of film (30x30")

“My work celebrates friendship, co-dependence, magic, healing, faith, and mistake making. My images and drawings memorialize moments of togetherness and independent voyages.”

Jaime Raybin (jaimeraybin.com) earned a BFA in Fine Art in 2006 from Watkins, where she currently works as an admissions recruiter. Her exhibition history includes Northwestern University, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts (Nashville), Swanson-Reed Contemporary (Louisville, KY), the Foundry Art Centre (Saint Charles, MO), Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (Athens, GA), the Renaissance Center (Dickson, TN) and the University of the South (Sewanee, TN).

• Acrylic on canvas “Bathroom” (28"x37") and “Can Phone” (17"x42"); digital micrography collage “For Owen” and “For Kalina” (each approx. 18”x24")

“My paintings deal with themes of social isolation and escapism. They are set in the workplace and in shared living spaces. This work is figurative and personal, often featuring myself as a character in narrative metaphorical vignettes.”

Originally from Louisiana, Trent Thibodeaux (thedesign13.com) has been a resident of Nashville for the past 14 years, since coming to Watkins to study graphic design; he earned his BFA in 2006. He has worked in many facets of the design world and currently is lead designer at Third Man Records.

• Graphite and wall paper on paper (10x20); color photo (8x10), wall pasted illustration in corner (3’x4’)

“My work deals with the transformation from the familiar to the unfamiliar. Using drawings, textures, & found images that evoke nostalgia, i create new images that tell an unintended story. At first glance these new images look familiar and deliver a sense of comfort. Through further exploration, the comparison of unfamiliar and unexpected elements creates sense of uneasiness. The conflict created by the unexpected change in narrative, caused by the combination of disparate elements challenges the viewer to rethink the idea of normalcy and expectation.”

Watkins College of Art, Design & Film is a four-year baccalaureate college offering a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Interior Design and Photography, a Bachelor of Arts in Art, and a Professional Certificate in Film. The faculty and staff are committed to a learning-centered environment that challenges students to engage the mind, train the eye and cultivate talent and skill into an active realization of creative potential.

Relient K MMHMM 10th Anniversary Tour - All Ages Show

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Canton, Ohio's Relient K formed in 1998 and joined the parade of Christian punk-pop artists (MxPx, Ghoti Hook, Slick Shoes, etc.) with their self-titled 2000 debut, mixing catchy melodies and snotty attitude with spiritual concerns. The record was produced by dc Talk guitarist Mark Townsend, and the band was comprised of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Matt Thiessen, guitarist Matthew Hoopes, bassist Brian Pittman, and drummer Stephen Cushman. David Douglas joined up in place of Cushman by the year's end, and Relient K followed up in August 2001 with The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek. The album sold 300,000 copies and Relient K's momentum continued to build as they played nearly 200 shows in North America before the year closed out. A third full-length, Two Lefts Don't Make a Right... But Three Do, debuted at number 38 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart upon its release in spring 2003. The band didn't waste any time recording a fourth album; MMHMM, produced by lead singer Thiessen and dc Talk's Townsend and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge, was released in November 2004 by Gotee/Capitol. MMHMM scanned over 51,000 copies sold during its first week, hitting number 15 on the Top 200 and number one for Christian albums. It eventually went gold, Relient K's third consecutive album to do so, and the band's mainstream crossover was in full swing with singles "Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been" doing very well on modern rock radio and MTV.

 

 

[Apathetic EP]Pittman left the group after MMHMM's release (later going on to play with Inhale/Exhale), and John Warne (ex-Ace Troubleshooter) filled in on bass for touring purposes, becoming a permanent member in 2005. Relient K further added Jonathan Schneck as a third guitarist (who also played banjo and bells) that year, bumping them up to quintet status. With Relient K touring constantly in support of MMHMM, Apathetic EP followed in November 2005 as another treat to hold over fans as the guys readied their next album. Five Score & Seven Years Ago (as in their fifth album in seven years), largely produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Less Than Jake), was released in early March 2007. True to form, Relient K set out on a full round of nationwide dates, including spring shows with Mae and Sherwood, before releasing the Christmas-themed album Let It Snow Baby... Let It Reindeer (containing several tracks from the band's previous holiday release, Deck the Halls, Bruise Your Hand) later that fall. In October, Douglas announced that he would be leaving Relient K to dedicate himself full-time to his side project Gypsy Parade. He was replaced in early 2008 by Ethan Luck, who would accompany the group during its appearances on that year's Warped Tour. In July, the group released the B-side album The Bird and the Bee Sides, which was packaged with The Nashville Tennis EP. The band released its sixth studio album, Forget and Not Slow Down, in 2009. The seven-song covers EP K Is for Karaoke appeared in 2011.

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

It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history.

An Acoustic Evening with Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Two nights at the City Winery Nashville! John Hiatt, who the Los Angeles Times calls “...one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” will release his new album Terms Of My Surrender, on July 15, 2014 via New West Records. Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. The new record is musically rooted in acoustic blues, accentuated by Hiatt’s soulful, gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.

Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash (#1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s film, The Country Bears. He earned a Grammy nomination for Crossing Muddy Waters, while B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. Hiatt has received his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was saluted at the Indiana Governor’s Arts Awards.

Geminid Meteor Shower

Presented by Team Green Adventures

Considered by many to be the best meteor shower in the heavens, the Geminids are known for producing up to 60 multicolored meteors per hour at their peak. One of the best viewing locations around Nashville for a show like this is along the Natchez Trace! Come on out and bring your family and friends. The best viewing is at midnight, but this far from the city lights, you could see some falling stars earlier in the evening. Assuming the weather is fair, and there is no cloud cover, a Team Green Trip leader will meet you out on the Trace.

This is an "unofficial" Team Green event, meaning there will not a designated "Trip Leader," unless noted below. Folks are welcome to meet up at the viewing location on the Natchez Trace (near mile marker 426.3, only 1/2 mile past the Garrison Creek exit) on their own schedule.

The shower falls between the Full Moon and New Moon, meaning there will be enough natual light in the sky to mask some of the fainter meteors, but should not affect the brigher stars.

When: Saturday, December 13th (anytime after sunset)
Peak time is evening of December 13th and morning of December 14th
Where: Natchez Trace Parkway
Near Mile Marker 426.3 (past Garrison Creek exit). Look for the "Old Natchez" sign and turn left into the viewing area.
Cost: FREE and open to the public!

Trip Leader: None Assigned

Difficulty: It’s easy to sit back and watch the stars. Bring warm clothing, blankets, chairs, binoculars/telescopes, warm beverages, and anything else to keep you comfortable while relaxing in the grass!
Registration Deadline: No registration required.
Group Size Limit: No group size limit

Parking: Parking is available at the suggested viewing area.

James Gregory

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

For over two decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt un-tucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It’s storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory’s comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch. Gregory is constantly touring. He’s on the road about three days a week, forty six weeks a year. He continues to entertain sold-out crowds in theaters and comedy clubs and remains in demand for corporate events. James has been the featured entertainer for over 200 corporations, including the Coca Cola Company, Kimberly Clark Corporation, Hewlett Packard and Kroger. James has also been the featured speaker for events sponsored by various civic and church groups. James is heard weekly on syndicated radio shows such as Rick and Bubba, John Boy and Billy and Bob and Tom. Combined, these shows are broadcast to people in over 220 cities nationwide. As a result, he now has a grass-roots following that numbers in the millions. Gregory was born in a rural area about twenty five miles east of Atlanta, GA. He got his first job at the age of twelve at a small country grocery store. By the time he was fifteen, he was working thirty-seven hours a week, as well as going to school. As an adult, James has worked for the U.S. Postal Service, the Department of Defense, and spent almost ten years as a salesman before discovering the wonderful world of stand-up comedy. James does not “tip-toe” through life as if he’s walking on broken glass or egg shells. That style is evident on stage as well. He is not politically correct. Much of his humor is centered on brilliant observations of crazy relatives and people obsessed with the slightest change in weather conditions – now referred to as global warming. He delights in poking fun at modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists. Gregory has been quoted as saying, “If you want me to be concerned about endangered species, you need to convince me that we’re about out of chickens. The James Gregory show turns the clock back to a time when life was simpler; to a better time, before the death of common sense; a time when people sat on the front porch and actually talked to each other without a cell phone in their ear. Gregory’s success, like his comedy, is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, twenty something years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows. The absence of vulgarity sets James apart and his stories are carefully crafted art. “I have lived long enough to know people, know life”, Gregory reflects. “My comedy is based on my life experiences. It’s real, it’s funny and the audience loves it. That’s why I’m still in business.”

As a singer/songwriter, Phil has hit the Top 5 seven times with songs like “Carlene,” “Last Day of My Life” and “American Child” and topped the charts with “In A Real Love” and the perennial favorite “Just Another Day in Paradise.” Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, his songs other artists have taken to #1 include “My Next Thirty Years” by Tim McGraw, “She’s Right On The Money” by Alan Jackson, and Jo Dee Messina’s “Bye, Bye” and “I’m Alright.” New artist David Nail had a hit with Phil’s “The Sound of a Million Dreams,” which Billboard named the #1 song in their Top 10 Country Songs of 2012.

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

It is also a goal to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history.

Kopecky Family Band

Presented by Mercy Lounge at Mercy Lounge

“Family” is a word that encompasses a variety of definitions. With that in mind, let this introduction to Kopecky Family Band be taken with an open mind and with a grain of salt. This family is connected not by blood or by heritage, but by circumstance. No, this is a family bound by the miles on their odometer and by the songs they have crafted over the years. These six young musicians have created a family through their commitment to each other and to their craft. Crack open your dictionary, if you need to.

the Kopecky Family Band – a non-traditional family, at that – is dynamic, and they wield an equally dynamic slew of instruments. Their thoughtful songwriting is supported by a diverse backdrop of sound. And the musical canvas is covered with broad brushstrokes – ranging from clanging tambourines and guitars, booming percussion, intelligent string arrangements, and triumphant horns. These six bandmates – siblings, if you will – swap their musical tools without a second thought, creating an emotive, adventurous, and energetic environment onstage.

In late 2007, founding members Kelsey Kopecky and Gabriel Simon became united with four friends who shared a mutual vision. They planted seeds that have been nurtured for the past five years through persistent touring and recording – and those seeds are rapidly reaching maturity. With thousands of miles traveled, and surely thousands to come, the Kopecky Family Band is only just beginning their adventure – and they want to bring you along for the ride.

"Create Your Story" Writing Performance Institute with Minton Sparks

Presented by Minton Sparks 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 to 20 participants. Please register at www.mintonsparks.com/workshop by Friday, December 5th, so we can get a final count of attendees.

A Christmas Carol...more or less

Presented by Mel O'Drama Theater

Don't miss A Christmas Carol….More or Less by Stefano LoVerso and Mary Irey, husband/wife and former SNL writers!

It's a Family Friendly Comedy Staring Francine Berk and Chad David Webb!

Sarah and Charlie, a married couple, run a small theatre that's presenting A Christmas Carol -- until Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Charlie is planning to split up with Sarah tonight, but he's snowed in. Sarah, furious, capitalizes on Charlie's remarkable memory, and blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to. He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, Charlie gets drawn back into his relationship with Sarah. They actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, informing it with dual levels of meaning

Written by: Charles Dickens

Music by: Alen Menken and Lynn Ahrens

Produced with permission from Music Theatre International (MTI)

Back by popular demand, you will want to make this a holiday tradition. 
Differentiating this version from hundreds of other adaptations of the same yuletide classic is it’s tongue-in-cheek ambiance and memorable tunes by perennial Disney composer, Alen Menken and former “Schoolhouse Rock” lyricist, Lynn Ahrens.  Inspired by a stage musical that use to be presented annually at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the show features a tight fisted Ebenezer Scrooge who sees the error of his ways just in time to oversee “The Best Christmas Ever” for his long suffering clerk Bob Cratchett  and “God Bless Us Everyone” Tiny Tim.  Highlights include “Link by Link,” wherein the ghostly Marley and a chorus of wraiths perform a lively ball-in-chain dance number, and the outsized Christmas celebration in the home of Scrooge’s first boss, Mr. Fezziwig.

Latin American artist Guayasamín featured in Vanderbilt exhibit

Presented by Center for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt at Vanderbilt University - Sarratt Student Center

Art by Oswaldo Guayasamín, one of the most prominent Latin American artists of the 20th century, is spotlighted in an interactive exhibit. The Vanderbilt Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) presents “Art in Motion: Guayasamín’s ‘Ecuador’ Unframed” in the Sarratt Center Promenade.

A reproduction of Guayasamín’s mural “Ecuador” is made interactive by bringing together social history, multimedia representation and mathematical algorithms, according to Avery Dickins De Girón, executive director of CLAS. “A digital interface accompanies the exhibit and allows visitors to view tens of thousands of potential configurations of the five panels, and even to virtually create their own mural,” Dickins De Girón said.

This exhibit combines art and technology and explores questions of race, identity and politics. CLAS collaborated with Notre Dame professors Carlos A. Jáuregui and Tatiana Botero, Vanderbilt’s Fine Arts Gallery, the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy, and The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons at Vanderbilt to bring the exhibit to campus.

Guayasamín’s vision was that identity is always in motion, and the mural ‘Ecuador’ represents the inherent antagonisms and racial multiplicity of the Ecuadorian nation,”“Guayasamín’s vision was that identity is always in motion, and the mural ‘Ecuador’ represents the inherent antagonisms and racial multiplicity of the Ecuadorian nation,” Dickins De Girón said. In 2008, the Center for Latin American Studies and the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery organized the first major exhibition of Guayasamín’s work in the United States.

Matt Wertz Presents Snow Globe: A Christmas Tradition w/ Special Guests

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

What began with a homemade drum groove on Matt’s front porch in Nashville sprang into a varied ten-song album that is equal parts a dip in the electric blue waters of the 80s and a testament to the artistic breadth Wertz has developed at this point in his career.

“Get to You,” the opening track on Heatwave, Wertz’s most ambitious project to date, was written during the initial porch session with producer Brandon Hood. The drum groove brings to mind the classic loop beats of that era and immediately establishes the album’s fluid, dynamic tone. With “Whenever You Love Somebody,” Wertz delivers the aching, honest lyrics his fans have come to expect, this time setting them against a backdrop of resonant beats and velvety guitars.

The Santaland Diaries @theotherspace

Presented by Roxy Regional Theatre at Roxy Regional Theatre

An out-of-work actor decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. The job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter. His bitterness, however, turns to bliss as he experiences the miracle called Christmas.

By David Sedaris

Steel Panther

Presented by Marathon Music Works at Marathon Music Works

Satirically pretending to be a hair metal band that missed its big break in the '80s, singer Ralph Saenz ("Michael Starr"), drummer Darren Leader ("Stix Zadinia"), bassist Travis Haley ("Lexxi Foxxx"), and guitarist Russ Parrish ("Satchel") hit the club circuit on the Sunset Strip around the turn of the millennium under the name Metal Shop (later changed to Metal Skool, and then Steel Panther). With big spiky wigs, leather jackets, zebra-striped spandex, chops earned from playing in a Van Halen tribute band, and lots and lots of machismo, their comic take on sex, drugs, and rock & roll to the extreme caught on quickly, leading to sold-out shows and some unexpected brushes with mainstream success. As their popularity increased, the Hollywood crowd started frequenting their sets, often making appearances on-stage. This led to some opportunities: the band fittingly played the role of a metal band as "Danger Kitty" in a Discover Card commercial; they appeared on The Drew Carey Show as themselves; and their song "FF" was used as the theme for MTV's Fantasy Factory. In May of 2008 the band signed to Universal Republic. After releasing the singles "Death for All But Metal" and "Community Property," Steel Panther's full-length Feel the Steel was released in October of 2009.

Tab Benoit with Samantha Fish

Presented by The Franklin Theatre at The Franklin Theatre

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Tab Benoit makes his home near New Orleans in Houma, Louisiana. Born November 17, 1967, he's one of a handful of bright rising stars on the modern blues scene. For most of the 1990s and into the 2000s, he's worked each of his records the old-fashioned way, by playing anywhere and everywhere he and his band can play.

Unlike so many others before him, Benoit understands that blues is not a medium in favor with 50,000-watt commercial rock radio stations, so as a consequence, he's combined each of his releases with as many shows as he can possibly play. Since the release of his first album for Justice, Benoit has taken his brand of Cajun-influenced blues all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Nice and Warm, his debut album for Houston-based Justice Records, prompted some critics to say he was sometimes reminiscent of three blues guitar gods: Albert King, Albert Collins, and Jimi Hendrix.

Although the hard-working, modest guitarist scoffs at those comparisons, and doesn't think he sounds like them (and doesn't try to sound like them, either), Benoit doesn't appear to be one who's easily led into playing rock & roll instead of his down-home blend of swamp blues and East Texas guitar-driven blues. Talk to Benoit at one of his shows, and he'll tell you about his desire to "stay the course" and not water down his blues by playing items that could be interpreted as "alternative" rock. Despite the screaming guitar licks he coaxes from his Telecaster and his powerful songwriting and singing abilities, Benoit's laid-back, down-to-earth personality off-stage is the exact opposite of his live shows.

The decoration theme this year is “Tennessee Landscapes,” showcasing the natural beauty of our state. Tennessee has 54 State Parks and each will be a partner to create spectacular decorations representing the scenic landscapes of west, middle and east Tennessee.


This summer, Mrs. Haslam is visiting state parks throughout Tennessee to collect ideas for the decorations. The main tree will specifically highlight state parks, as there will be an ornament for each park hand-painted by an artist who they selected to represent their park.


In Conservation Hall, the trees will be decorated by Tennessee State Parks Junior Rangers to showcase the many ways we enjoy our outdoors. Whether it’s taking a hike or going for a swim, Tennessee landscapes are beautiful to take in and fun to enjoy.


The natural decorations will be supplemented with complementing ornaments and decorations from the Jim Marvin Collection, a holiday, floral & gift company based in Dickson, TN. The president of the company, Jim Marvin is considered a leader in holiday design and color direction for the last 30 years. We are thrilled to have Mr. Marvin’s assistance decorating the Residence for the fourth year in a row.

 

Holiday gifts and Residence souvenirs will be available for purchase (with cash, check, or credit card) at the First Lady’s Gift Shop. Proceeds benefit the Tennessee Residence Foundation to support renovation and restoration projects at the Tennessee Residence. Gift Shop items may include:


- Tennessee Residence coffee mugs, glassware, coasters, prints, playing cards, notepad and pens
- Jams, preserves, baked goods homemade by Tennessee Executive Residence Chef, Stephen Ward
- The Governor and First Lady’s Official 2014 Christmas Ornament

Mark O'Connor and An Appalachian Christmas

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

Mark O’Connor is a multi-Grammy winning American jazz, folk, classical violinist/composer and author. His orchestral concertos and symphonies have received over 500 performances around the country, and his million-seller "Appalachia Waltz" is one of the most loved string pieces since Barber's "Adagio." A product of America's rich aural folk tradition as well as classical music, Mark O'Connor's creative journey began at the feet of a pair of musical giants. The first was the folk fiddler and innovator who created the modern era of American fiddling, Benny Thomasson; the second, French jazz violinist, considered one of the greatest improvisers in the history of the violin, Stephane Grappelli. Along the way, between these marvelous musical extremes, Mark O'Connor absorbed knowledge and influence from the multitude of musical styles and genres he studied. Now, at age 51, he has melded and shaped these influences into a new American Classical music, and a vision of an entirely American school of string playing. As The Los Angeles Times recently noted, he has "crossed over so many boundaries, that his style is purely personal." Mr. O'Connor is also an eloquent spokesman for the role of the arts in society and a keen observer of the evolution of American music. The O'Connor Method - A New American School of String Playing has joined the Suzuki method as the most popular method to learn from around the country as students respond to the cultural proximity of the American musical material featured in the Method. The groundbreaking method is the first violin method to feature all American music and has been hailed by teachers from across the country as filling a significant gap in classical music education. It was inspired by the thousands of students O'Connor has taught at his string camps and at universities and conservatories across the country, and by his belief that the modern classical violin student who develops a working knowledge of folk fiddling, jazz music and world music styles can enjoy a lifetime of music-making, and be more successful in the new music environment.

Andrew Ripp Christmas Show

Presented by City Winery Nashville at City Winery Nashville

Having an awe-inspiring voice is one thing, but knowing how to use that voice to share lyrics and emotion in a way that moves those who hear the songs is quite another. Ripp has grown in this over the years as a respected songwriter with the voice of an artist. With his first two albums, Fifty Miles to Chicago in 2008 and She Remains The Same in 2010, debuting at #1 on the Singer/Songwriter chart on iTunes, Andrew proved that he could create a song and share it with emotion and instrumentation.

He began as a songwriter- with a song on the Billboard 100 charts recorded by Ryan Cabrera, and other songs featured on American Idol, One Tree Hill, and Live To Dance, but grew comfortable in the place where his strong and powerful voice was the driving force behind each single.

Amy Grant & Vince Gill: Christmas at the Ryman

Presented by Ryman Auditorium at Ryman Auditorium

"Christmas audiences are special," explains Grant. "They tend to involve the whole family, and their emotions are a wonderful mix of anticipation and reverence.  It's a thrilling experience for both of us." "These holiday tours have become our favorites," Gill agrees.

In their two hour program, the Grammy-winning husband-and-wife team will present cherished standards and as well as newer seasonal fare.

Amy Grant's career spans over 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into her experience as an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. Grant has sold more than 30 million albums boasting one five-time Platinum album, one triple Platinum and one double Platinum album, as well as six platinum and four Gold albums. Amy has won six GRAMMY® Awards in multiple categories, beginning with the platinum selling Age to Age in 1982 and 25 GMA Dove Awards. She also has six No. 1 hits – including "Baby, Baby" and "Every Heartbeat" – and is one of only two Christian artists to be awarded a star on the legendary Walk of Fame in Hollywood. In 2003, she was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. While continuing to tour to enthusiastic audiences, Amy also released her first studio album of all new material in 10 years, the critically acclaimed How Mercy Looks from Here, in May 2013, which debuted at No. 1 on the Christian charts and No. 12 on the Billboard Pop Top 100.  The debut at No. 1 at Christian retail extended Amy's record for the most No.1 album debuts – 16 – for the genre.

One of the most popular singers in modern country music, Vince Gill has a love for country  music,  top-notch songwriting, and world-class guitar playing,  all wrapped  in a warm tenor and a quick and easy wit. Gill achieved his big breakthrough with "When I Call Your Name," which won the Country Music Association's Single of the Year award.  Since then, he has won  17 more CMA honors, including Song of the Year four times – making him the  most-awarded artist in that category in CMA history.  The Academy of Country Music has handed Gill 8 awards, including their prestigious "The Home Depot Humanitarian Award" and the 2011 "Career Achievement Award." Since 1990, Gill has received 20 GRAMMY® Awards and has sold more than 26 million albums.  Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In August 2012, Gill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is a member of the four-time Grammy-nominated band The Time Jumpers. In July 2013, Gill released his first duet record with legendary pedal steel guitar player and fellow Time Jumper Paul Franklin.  Entitled Bakersfield, the record paid homage to two of Gill and Franklin's musical heroes:  Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.

A Line of Thought: Paintings & Drawings by Claire Hampton, Sue Mulcahy & Britt Stadig

Presented by Marnie Sheridan Gallery at Marnie Sheridan Gallery at Harpeth Hall

Paintings, drawings and one-of-a-kind art books. Britt Stadig received her BFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Connecticut and an MFA in book arts and printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. Britt's work is primarily mixed media. She incorporates sewing, drawing, printmaking, handset and stamped type. Her work plays on the theme of family secrets and the fragility of memory. She weaves text into her work that functions as both image and narrative.

Sue Mulcahy received her M.F.A. in Printmaking from Wayne State University, Detroit and a BFA in Painting from Daemen College, Buffalo NY. Sue says "(her) abstract images are an exploration of the mysteries of life. In poetry, it is in the things that are not said, where truth lies: the space between the lines, the underlying rhythms and structures. My images operate in much the same way. If my audience is touched, it is through their own exploration." 

Claire Hampton has been a practicing artist and educator for over 40 years. It is the act of drawing or painting in focused observation that she considers an active meditation. Some of her work addresses environmental issues; some relates to internal environments and levels of consciousness; some of her work combines the two.

Hip Donelson Support Metro Police Christmas Charities

Presented by Hip Donelson Farmers Market at Hip Donelson Farmers Market

Hip Donelson has announced a partnership with the Metro Police Christmas Charities to collect new and unwrapped toys, and larger stuffed animals for their annual Christmas Basket program. In addition, this year Hip Donelson announced a gift in the amount of $5,500.00 to the police charity. “We are thrilled to be able to provide this amount of funding to the organization. It is amazing to see these children’s faces when you deliver their food and toys on Christmas Eve morning”, said Frank Trew, President of Hip Donelson. The funds are being generated from the Hip Donelson general fund, and from reserves from the Piedmont Natural Gas SNAPBack program from the Farmers Market that ended in October. Piedmont has been ardent supporter of providing food for those less fortunate. These dollars are designated 100 % for food purchases.

This is the 52nd year for this program, started by then Sgt. and former police Chief Joe Casey. Officers nominate families they encounter throughout the year, and though not every family nominated can be assisted, careful consideration is given to ensure that all who are assisted are in need. Families are not eligible to receive baskets on consecutive years.

Each Christmas Eve at 5:30 a.m., officers and hundreds of civilians gather to pick up and then deliver these baskets to families all across Nashville. Many families make this delivery a yearly tradition, and speaking from personal experience, it is an amazing way to start Christmas! You cannot imagine the joy of delivering Christmas to children who would never have a Christmas but for the generosity of others. This year, 177 families and 50 elderly will receive baskets, and the organization has budgeted for up to 10 emergency donations that may come up at the last minute.

Hermitage Police Precinct Commander Michele Donegan has served as the Chief Elf since 2011. She and a dedicated staff of officers go on special assignment after Thanksgiving to prepare all the baskets and ensure there are enough toys for each child and food for each family.
“The ability to provide four bushel-baskets of food and toys to over 177 families is a huge undertaking,” said Commander Donegan.

The money from the program comes from generous donations from local civic groups, small businesses, police employees, and major corporations. For the past 23 years, Boswell’s Harley Davidson has sponsored a Toy Parade to raise funds. It collected over $15,000 last year.

New toys that are not holiday wrapped and larger sized stuffed animals can be dropped off at the following Donelson locations beginning Nov. 1:

Cedarstone Bank-Donelson

Augustana

Presented by Cannery Ballroom at Cannery Ballroom

Over the course of their eight years as a band, Augustana have become known as quality purveyors of well-crafted, melodic piano-driven rock, as evidenced by the success of their Top 40 singles, the digital platinum “Boston” and “Stars and Boulevards” from their 2005 debut All the Stars and Boulevards (which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart), and “Sweet and Low” and “I Still Ain’t Over You” from 2008’s Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt.

Take one listen to Augustana’s self-titled third album and it’s clear that this band has thrown off the shackles of playing it safe. After spending the past two years writing, lead vocalist and lyricist Daniel Layus has dug deep and emerged with a passionate, rootsy rock collection that is distinctively American, recalling the muscularity and epic sweep of albums by Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen in their heyday.

“I’m 25 and making my third album,” Layus notes. “It may sound kind of funny, but while I was writing the songs, I thought a lot about the fact that Springsteen was 26 when he made his third album, Born To Run, and Petty was 29 when he made his third, Damn the Torpedoes. They both had success leading up to those albums, but those are the records that ignited their careers, so I thought, ‘This is it. This album has got to have that scope, both sonically and emotionally. I can’t hold back in any way.’ This is our chance to really show what we can do.”

The result is a shimmering blend of rock, folk, and country that manages to sound both modern and timeless. The subtle, streamlined production by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) lets the true beauty of Layus’ soulful vocal delivery, as well as the band’s barnstorming performances, shine through. It’s as close as this band has come to capturing the lightning that strikes when Augustana — which also includes bassist Jared Palomar, guitarist Chris Sachtleben, and drummer Justin South — play live. “Onstage, our music comes across more raw and intentional, and I wanted this album to have that sense of purpose,” Layus says. “It feels like the most true expression of who this band is in its most basic form. We worked really hard to bring the sound to a new frontier, but not so far that it lost its organic sensibility.”

Zeitgeist presents works by Richard Feaster, Todd McDaniel, Alex Blau and Patrick DeGuira

Presented by Zeitgeist Gallery at Zeitgeist Gallery

Join us during November and December for exhibits featuing works by Richard Feaster, Todd McDaniel and Alex Blau.

Noise Induced Transitions by Richard Feaster Longtime Nashville fave, Richard Feaster, shows new work featuring dried pigment and reflective surfaces. His work traditionally focuses on the play of light across the surfaces and the new work offers new twists of color, texture, and psychedelia. 

ramble, repeat by Todd McDaniel Todd McDaniel is based in NYC but maintains a studio in Nashville. This time round, he offers up new images of squeegeed color that might be a bit more free-wheeling than what many followers are used to seeing from him. Look for passages reaching back to modernist masters such as Matisse, Motherwell, and Gottlieb. 

solar impulse by Alex Blau Many will recall Alex Blau's work in the Mark Scala curated Frist Center outing, Abstractometry. The show focused on the wealth of new talent in the Nashville studio scene. Alex serves up her latest influences by candycoated, colorburst design.

Dog of My Reflection at Sewanee, University of the South by Patrick DeGuira Opening November 14 and running through December.

Presented by Haynes Galleries at Haynes Galleries

Small in scale. Big on impact. To kick off the holiday season Haynes Galleries presents A Treasure Trove of Real Art, a show that will focus on relatively smaller pieces that are still grand in their design and execution. This assortment of still lifes, portraits, and landscapes will be on view from November 21 to December 20 with an opening reception will take place from 5:00pm to 7:30pm on November 21.

While highlighting smaller works, the show will also be a celebration of fine American and Contemporary Realism for which Haynes Galleries has come to be known. Works from three centuries—the 19th, 20th, and 21st— will be on display to mark the variety of the gallery’s roster of artists. Legendary names like Sargent and Wyeth will appear next to the upcoming artists of today like Zoey Frank and Candice Bohannon.

Though the works in A Treasure Trove of Real Art are petite, each is a celebration of realist art. An appreciation of tradition and the little things in life, which are sometimes the most lasting.

Tennessee Mafia Jug Band

Presented by Station Inn at Station Inn

 From Goodlettsville, Tennessee, home of Bill Monroe, Bashful Brother Oswald, Stringbean, Grandpa Jones, Keith Whitley and an impressive list of living country music performers, comes the most entertaining “blast from the past” on the touring music scene today. It’s the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band – shameless purveyors of a music and humor-filled performance that harkens back to a feature of the old Roy Acuff Show– a shtick known as “Pap & the Jug Band.”

There are only so many graveyard numbers or raunchy love songs that even the most rabid country audience can sit through without a bit of relief. This rollicking band brightens up the stage with rib-tickling old time tunes and complete lack of self-consciousness (or as some might say, any sense of decorum).

The band has been a mainstay of RFD-TV’s popular Marty Stuart Show. They have toured throughout North America and Europe. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band members not only know the music, they wear the costumes, tell corny jokes and even do slapstick gags that throw an audience into hysterics.

The band was recently honored at Uncle Dave Macon Days as recipients of the 2014 “Trailblazer Award,” presented to an artist/group who has developed old-time musical performance styles and techniques that blaze the trail for others to perpetuate, emulate, refine, and follow into contemporary genres.

Members of the band have a long and impressive legacy in music and entertainment. Banjoist and songster Leroy Troy is a bona fide good ol’ boy who has performed his astounding old time banjo act since the 1980s at the Knoxville World’s Fair, in the cast of Hee Haw, on many recordings, and on tour around the globe. LeRoy was a recipient of the 2014 “Trailblazer Award” at Uncle Dave Macon Days and in the past has been a Champion, a Grand Marshall, and “Heritage Award” winner - given to an individual dedicated to the preservation of Old Time Country Music.

Fiddler, Dan Kelly, has won hundreds of fiddle competitions and was a six-state champion — years ago at the age of 12, he won the Canadian National Open Championship. On bass fiddle is Ernie Sykes, who has played with his family band, the Bluegrass Cardinals, the Lonesome River Band, Irish Ceilhi band and The Aisles of Langerhanz. He has the distinction of being the final bass player in Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys. Mike Webb plays the resonator guitar, and has also been spotted with the old time banjo and rhythm guitar. On guitar is the late “Lonesome” Lester Armistead’s son, Mike Armistead, who shares lead singing duties with Leroy and serves as the Jug Band’s tenuous contact with the twenty-first century.

“Lonesome” Lester Armistead died within a few weeks of the announcement of the band's selection as the 2014 Trailblazer Award winners. To honor his memory, Uncle Dave Macon Days festival organizer Gloria Shacklett Christie announced that the festival will reinstate their jug band competition that was disbanded in 2011 and name it “The Lester Armistead Jug Band Competition.”

The hot picking, powerful harmony singing and uproarious hijinks of The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band are sure to provide a truly memorable evening. For more on the band, visit www.tennesseemafiajugband.com

A Christmas Carol...more or less

Presented by Mel O'Drama Theater

Don't miss A Christmas Carol….More or Less by Stefano LoVerso and Mary Irey, husband/wife and former SNL writers!

It's a Family Friendly Comedy Staring Francine Berk and Chad David Webb!

Sarah and Charlie, a married couple, run a small theatre that's presenting A Christmas Carol -- until Charlie shows up backstage to say the cast and crew are snowed out. Charlie is planning to split up with Sarah tonight, but he's snowed in. Sarah, furious, capitalizes on Charlie's remarkable memory, and blackmails him into doing the play with her as a duo, relying on scripts when they need to. He plays Scrooge; she plays everyone else. As the performance proceeds, Charlie gets drawn back into his relationship with Sarah. They actually manage to perform much of the play, with their personal story invading the Dickens tale, informing it with dual levels of meaning.

Quilts for Friends on Display in Cannon Hall

Presented by Arts Center of Cannon County at Arts Center of Cannon County

John Harris and his family moved from NYC to Dekalb County some 40 years ago.  After retiring 7 years ago John decided to see if he could learn to use a sewing machine and become a quilter.  His initial interest in quilting began when he found quilting shows like "Fons and Porter" and "Sewing With Nancy" on the public TV station. 

Each of John's quilts are made for a particular friend.  The designs and colors for that quilt are chosen with that friend in mind.   John has made more than 23 quilts so far. 13 of which are display.

Cannon Hall is a 2600 square foot exhibition and event space in the Arts Center. We display works from our collection, as well as, loaned works from private collections and public institutions.Admission to Cannon Hall is free.

"Christmas Belles"

Presented by Towne Centre Theatre at Towne Centre Theatre

Tis the season to be jolly; but in this hilarious holiday farce, set in Fayro, Texas, a church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control among three squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep, and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. Written by Jesse Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten (of Golden Girls fame), the script’s characters are each crafted carefully and uniquely. While this cast is sure to have its audience laughing out loud, among all the chaos, the real meaning of the season inserts itself at every turn. The Sisters Futrelle —Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye (played by Kristin H. Rosario, Vickie Songer and Karen Himelrick respectively)—are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus—played by Frankie's husband, Dub—is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world! Additionally, with TCT¹s continuing commitment to our local charities, we are honored to be working with Hope Clinic for Women. Established in 1983, Hope Clinic is a faith based, confidential haven for women, men and families dealing with all aspects of pregnancy. Their services include medical care, professional counseling, education, mentorship and material support. During the run of Christmas Belles, a bin will be located in the lobby to collect diapers, baby toiletries, and receiving blankets for the families that Hope Clinic serves.

A Christmas Story

Presented by Nashville Repertory Theatre at TPAC - Andrew Johnson Theater

Adapted by Phillip Grecian from the motion picture by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown, and Bob Clark

Nashville’s All-American Holiday Tradition Celebrates its Fifth Anniversary!

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his unflappable campaign to get Santa (or anyone else) to give him a "legendary official Red Rider carbine-action 200 shot range-model air rifle." Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher, and even Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out." This irresistible piece of Americana is guaranteed to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone.

"Thanks to Tennessee Repertory Theatre's wonderfully evocative production of the play, based on the iconic holiday movie, if I could possibly have another more satisfying theatre experience, I could scarcely dream it." - Jeffrey Ellis, broadwayworld.com

Lavell Crawford

Presented by Zanies Comedy Night Club at Zanies Comedy Night Club

Comedian, Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks and becoming one of the hottest stars in the biz today. He recently filmed a new one-hour special in his home town of St. Louis, scheduled to premiere on Comedy Central on August 12, 2011. “Can A Brother Get Some Love?” will be released on DVD on August 16th, from Entertainment One. In addition, he recently filmed an episode of “Workaholics” for Comedy Central and he’s been cast in a recurring role on the new season of AMC’s Emmy Award-winning “Breaking Bad.” If that’s not enough, he can also be seen as a regular panelist on E! Entertainment’s “Chelsea Lately” and he’s a regular on “Lopez Tonight,” performing in various comedy sketches on the show. From his numerous television appearances and as one of the hottest touring acts in the country, audiences are becoming increasingly familiar with Lavell’s giant-sized talent. Lavell gained huge national exposure on NBC’s hit reality series “Last Comic Standing.” Not only did NBC take notice, promptly signing Lavell to a holding deal with the network, but also Comedy Central, offering him his own half-hour standup special, “Comedy Central Presents: Lavell Crawford” which aired in early 2009. Lavell’s stand-out work includes appearances on "Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam" which premiered on Showtime in December, “Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam” on HBO, “Showtime at the Apollo,” “Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment,” “Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen,” “Steve Harvey’s Big Time” “Comedy Central’s Premium Blend,” “Motown Live” and “BET’s Comic View.” In addition, Lavell has appeared in the films “Baby’s Mama Drama,” “Beverlyhood,” “Ghetto South Problems,” and on the televised series “The Jamie Foxx Show.” On stage, he played Ben in the hit play “Men Cry in the Dark,” based on the Michael Baisden best seller. Lavell also recently appeared on stage with the critically acclaimed production “Friends and Lovers,” a stage production based on the novel by author Eric Jerome Dickey where he played the scene-stealing Bobby. The play also featured notable actors such as Miguel Nunez (“Juwana Man”), Leon (“The Five Heartbeats”), Monica Calhoun (“The Best Man”), Mel Jackson (“Soul Food”) and Maia Campbell (“In the House”). Endeared by audiences far and wide, Lavell has built a very strong fan base playing theatres, comedy clubs and colleges across the nation in addition to festivals including HBO's US Comedy Arts Festival, The Comedy Festival and LAFFAPALOOZA, America's longest-running annual urban comedy festival.
