A young artist from Oklahoma, Jack Settle delivers a fresh take on a classic country sound with his crystal clear vocal tone and stellar band performances on Hickory Avenue.
  • Amid regular protests against historic buildings being torn down in and around Nashville, the news that Puckett’s in Leiper’s Fork, TN had changed hands and changed names recently might strike some as alarming. New owner Aubrey Preston needs you to know that Fox & Locke, the music venue and eatery in the former Puckett’s building, isn’t erasing history but restoring it.
  • This Friday is an especially rich date for live shows in Music City. Banditos are throwing an album release party outdoors at the Basement at 5 pm. Joshua Hedley and Dawn Landes are on the Musicians Corner bill at Centennial Park. Christina Vane celebrates her new CD at Dee’s. And I’m taking my kid to see Haim from the lawn at Ascend. But folks, none of that distracts from or overlaps with WMOT’s stacked lineup at lunch hour at Eastside Bowl. You can do it all.
  • Brandi Carlile, Allison Russell and Yola have emerged as game-changing artists in roots music in recent years, and on Monday afternoon they were informed that they’d each earned three nominations for 2022’s Americana Awards, in the prestige categories of Song, Album and Artist of the Year.
  • Check out two brand new live sets featuring Little Quirks and Sam Burchfield, today on Finally Friday from Home.
  • We’ve proudly featured the Po’ Ramblin’ Boys recently as an exemplar of the old bluegrass ways playing out by young artists on a modern stage, but they’re not the only band sporting flamboyant vintage stage wear and a close-knit, hard-boned bluegrass sound. And that’s why we kick show #10 off with the new single from the Kody Norris Show out of East Tennessee.
