Music City Roots John McEuen 70th Birthday Jam and Christmas show
Music City Roots, Live From Liberty Hall at the Factory in Franklin is a weekly, two-hour radio show that revives the historic legacy of live musical production. Broadcast on Wednesday nights on Hippie Radio 94.5 on Wednesday nights from 7:00pm to 9:00pm,CST, Music City Roots, showcases Nashville’s astonishing music scene, from country and Americana to more progressive interpreters of tradition — a “roots and branches” format that brings together fans of different tastes and generations.
Music fans worldwide know Nashville as the epicenter of country music, and Music City Roots embraces and builds on that foundation. MCR is broadcast to a global audience, not just as the keeper of the traditional flame, but as a trusted tastemaker that looks to the future of music in all its forms and sub-genres: bluegrass, folk, alternative, western, rockabilly and crossovers into rock, jazz and world music. There has never been a time of greater variety, abundance and quality in Nashville’s creative community, and Music City Roots looks to put that talent on a worldwide stage.
Each broadcast will feature 4-5 artists in 20 minute segments and short interviews, and also encourages collaboration with a nightly Jam where all musical guests embrace the spirit of Music City as the collaborative epicenter of tradition and innovation. Nashville’s legendary Keith Bilbrey is the announcer; Jim Lauderdale and other leaders of the music community host the festivities.
This week will feature the John McEuen 70th Birthday Jam and Christmas show with artists John McEuen, John Carter Cash, Roland White, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Bernie Leadon, Jeff Hanna, Les Thompson, Mike Bubb, John Cable, Matt Cartsonis and Jesse McReynolds.
