BMI’s “Young Guns” Monthly Showcase

On the last Wednesday of every month, music fans can enjoy listening to young, up and coming songwriters at the Sulter presented by BMI called “Young Guns”.

The series, created by BMI’s own David Preston 9 months ago, is meant to shine a spotlight on new songwriters mostly in the country genre. It’s a mix of both full band and acoustic performances depending on the artist’s preference.

I had the opportunity to attend the January showcase and throughly enjoyed the show featuring Olivia Bey, Sela Bruce, Charlie’s River, and Paulina Jayne.

As an added plus, love the venue of the newly-reopened and historic the Sutler, which offers great sound in a very cool setting since 1977 when original owner Johnny Potts first opened its doors.

Be sure to check out this fun series featuring BMI’s newest songwriters who I am sure you’ll be hearing about in the years to come every last Wednesday at 8pm at the Sutler in Nashville. Sponsored by Pickers Vodka.

Lady Antebellum Is Back! Brand New Single, Tour, And New Album On The Way

In case you missed it, Lady Antebellum is back with a brand new single just released to country radio called “You Look Good”, a new album on the way, and a tour planned.

I was lucky enough to be one of the few who got to see them perform together live for the first time in public in over a year for a secret show that they streamed live on Facebook at OZ in Nashville.  It was a fantastic show that I wanted to basically go on forever! Check out the video clip below from the performance.

The new song “You Look Good” is an midtempo country song with just a touch of 70’s funk to it complete with a horn section. Just a very cool vibe, and it feels like they are having fun again after a break they took to work on some solo projects. The new album is slated to release later this year.

They also announced a new worldwide tour this year that will include Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young. Catch them on the road, it’s going to be a good one.
