The Eric Heatherly Band at The Listening Room

The Eric Heatherly Band at The Listening Room

Eric Heatherly played The Listening Room in Nashville and tore the place up!  I’ve been lucky enough to work with Eric on his recording of Unforgettable (heard on Gray’s Anatomy) as well as songs from his upcoming album “2 High to Cry,” produced by Carson Chamberlain.  This was my first time hearing the live show and it definitely rocked!

The Farewell Drifters – Bluegrass Underground Photos – Cumberland Caverns

The Farewell Drifters - Bluegrass Underground Photos - Cumberland Caverns

The Farewell Drifters have such a great sound!  I’ve seen them many times and they always sound great.  Smooth harmonies and catchy back to basics melodies make their songs instant classics!  Clayton is also quite the monster on guitar… no doubt comes from shredding all those metal licks in his early years.

Very peaceful evening.  Chris Volpe, Kindling Stone, Tyler Grant, Nathan Blake Lynn, and Bawn in the Mash.  I was particularly impressed with Nathan Blake Lynn’s solo set.  His new album, 2 Catfish and a Bluegil, was recorded at Battle Ridge and is Awesome!
