6/24/13     Larry Cordle and Friends     The Station Inn

I ended up at the Station Inn last Monday night for New Mondays with Val Storey.  It was one of the most brilliant nights of music I have been to at the Station Inn and I never come away disappointed at this venue.  The following Mondays are not billed the same but I imagine they will be just as wonderful.

6/25/13     Drivin n Cryin     Belcourt Theatre

I read about this documentary about the band and live concert in the Nashville Scene and think it’s definitely the “best bet” for a Tuesday night no doubt!

6/26/13     Wooten Brothers     3rd and Lindsley

This is always a fun time with a variety of guests showing up as well as a great dance floor available to all who wish to dance in the fabulous new layout of 3rd and Lindsley.  

6/27/13     Josh Ritter with Milk Carton Kids   Cannery Ballroom

I just love the name of Josh’s opening act but I love their music even more.  

6/28/13     The Malemen     Frist Fridays

This is a summer event that’s always a good time.  The theme is cars so the first week features Motown music, put your dancing shoes on! 

6/29/13     Ruby Amanfu & Brooke Waggoner     Musicians Corner Centennial Park

Two wonderful singers with good songs.  I love the park atmosphere even if the sound isn’t always the best and there’s always a new musical find at this season weekly event. 

6/30/13     Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Bob Weir, Wilco     Riverfront Park

I don’t like Bob Dylan, yes I said it, but it’s kind of a no brainer that if you have the opportunity to see and hear him locally you’d better take it.  

6/30/13     Duffy Jackson’s Big BandThe Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

I once took a scat class from this man and it was amazing.  This is a benefit for an incredible drummer who has played with many of the giants of jazz.

6/17/13     Gordon Lightfoot     Schermerhorn

It’s been a while since I’ve put in a plug for a Canadian, so here it is, and what a Canadian he is! 

6/18/13     Lightning 100’s Beer, Bands, Bingo     Tin Roof Nashville

Play bingo with the folks at my favourite radio station in Nashville.  You will also be playing band roulette because I have no idea who will be playing but Lightning 100 shouldn’t let us down.  

6/19/13     Shel    Two Old Hippies

I adore these women and their cool hats and even cooler attitudes.  Excellent musicianship that’s unique and fun.  Bonus…it’s FREE! Don’t worry, I also think you should go to Music City Roots and hear Marshall Chapman if you didn’t catch her last week. 

6/20/13     Vince Gill     Ryman Auditorium

Known as the nicest guy in Nashville but also one of the best guitar players too. I can’t imagine what a great show this would be at the Ryman with his history in Nashville and his plethora of hit songs. 

6/21/13     Jen FosterPatrice Pike     The Listening Room

Yes I work for her, but  I am also a fan and the last time I saw Patrice Pike play with her at 12th and Porter I was blown away, so come on down and say hello, I will definitely be there! 

6/22/13     Nashville Tour de Fat      Centennial Park

This looks like a whole lot of fun and lasts all afternoon along with Musicians Corner then head back over the river and come salsa dancing with Revolfusion and support Nashville’s first ESL truck at East-Centric Pavilion  Meet The Truck Party. 

6/23/13     Tennessee Blues Society Jam     Carol Ann’s

Someone from the Blues Society recently followed this blog and a friend told me this is a good time so head on over to this weekly Sunday event.

Tin Pan South Week Nashville, TN Special Edition

Standard

I attended this  Nashville event regularly for a number of years back when I was interested in becoming a hit songwriter.  It’s fun to see some of the hit makers who have been playing it for years, some who were slugging away when I was and are now successful songwriters and those who have become my local favourites regardless of whether anyone has cut their song or not!  

I’ll list my top pick for early and late show but I’ll tell you some nights (mainly the weeknights) it was hard to pick just one.  Pick up a copy of the Nashville Scene for a full listing or go to the official Tin Pan South page here.

4/2/13   Radney Foster, Jon Randall, Bruce Robison, Wade Bowen  6:00 pm   3rd and Lindsley

 Radney Foster is just cool and great, Jon Randall wrote”Whiskey Lullabuy” which will tear you apart and I discovered  Bruce Robison when the Dixie Chicks were making the best “country” albums to ever come out of Nashville since the good ole days.  I am not familiar with Wade but how could he not be great with this lineup.

4/2/13   Colin Linden, Buddy Miller, special guests tba  9:00 pm   3rd and Lindsley

I have a few reasons I’m picking this show.  First because I love Buddy Miller and Colin Linden (my first Canadian mention of the week.) Second,  because I will already be at 3rd and Lindsley (although  I’ll probably have to eat there and if you’ve read this blog before you know how I feel about their sub par food)  and lastly because their “special guests” may include some of the artists from the TV Show Nashville which I will freely admit is a guilty pleasure of mine, I wouldn’t mind getting a close up view of some of the hotties from that show.

4/3/13     Victoria Banks, Phil Barton, Jaron Boyer, Emily Shackelton    6:00 pm Bluebird Cafe

This is my second Canadian mention of the week.  Victoria Banks was the 2010 CCMA winner for Best Female Vocalist.  She is also a great songwriter, super smart and a really cool person. It also would be a shame to not spend one night at the Bluebird Cafe and this would be my only pick there this week. 

4/3/13    Kristen Kelly, Ashley Monroe, Striking Matches, Trent Williams.  9:00 pm  Hard Rock Cafe

These artists and songwriters are a little newer to the scene than my previous mentions but great nonetheless. Google them to find out more or just trust me on this one. 

4/4/13   Ruby Amanfu, Trent Dabbs, Emerson Hart, Deniss Matkosky     6:00 pm The Listening Room Cafe

If you are really interested in hard core songwriter’s than just park yourself at the Rutledge for the night which is where we are heading next.  However, I will not pass up a chance to hear Ruby Amanfu sing and I like to mix up the traditional with a little more of the pop/alternative writers you will get in this set.  

4/4/13  Greg Barnhill, Gary Nicholson, Lee Roy Parnell, Mike Reid     9:00 pm     The Rutledge

The Rutledge has a great sound system, decent food and good seating.  The line up is not only full of hit songwriters but great guitar players as well.  

4/5/13     Marc Beeson, Paul Jenkins, Anthony L. smith, Matt Warren    6:30 pm  Winners

Friday night’s lineups everywhere are full of hit songwriters, new and old, and it’s a hard choice. Since I’ll be sending you to Winners at 9:30 you might as well just start the night off here and avoid having to find parking twice on a Friday night.  

4/5/13     Jen Foster, Granville Automatic, Nicole Witt 9:30 pm    Winners

I not only work with Jen Foster but I was a fan of her music long before I knew her personally. She is a great singer and writes melodic and heartfelt songs. Granville Automatic writes interesting songs that harken back to Civil War times and Witt has had cuts with everyone from Rodney Adkins to Point of Grace.  

4/6/13    Adelee & Gentry, Charles Alexander, Alyssa Bonagura, Gabe Dixon  6:30 pm  Hard Rock Cafe

Adelee & Gentry are fairly new but are making quite a smash and are a nice change to the usual radio friendly country.  I first heard about them through my friend Charles Alexander who I believe is a brilliant person and I look forward to hearing him perform live for the first time.  Alyssa has a beautiful voice and is also not a typical “Nashville” artist but part of the “new Nashville order” that I love so much.  Gabe Dixon is a great pianist and one of my favourite local artists.  His Christmas show at 3rd & Lindsley was one of my top ten concerts of 2011.  

4/6/13     Aaron Barker, Lee Thomas Miller, Chris Wallin, Camille Wallin 9:30 pm  The Rutledge

I would go to this show purely just to hear and see Chris & Camille Wallin.  Great singers, great songs and I expect they wouldn’t do a round with anyone who doesn’t measure up to their standards.
