The Tennessee Shines Radio Show happens every Monday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and is broadcast live on award-winning, listener-supported radio station WDVX FM and online at WDVX.com.
The month of October brings Eric Brace and Peter Cooper with Dale Ann Bradley and Steve Gulley; Sarah Siskind and the Novel Tellers; and Chris Smither and Moses Atwood.
East Nashville residents Eric Brace and Peter Cooper bonded over their shared histories as newspaper writers, then started playing music together, blending master storytelling with musical craft. Together they’ve released the Grammy-nominated I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow (2011), Master Sessions (2010) and You Don’t Have To Like Them Both (2009).
Dale Ann Bradley has set the bar for bluegrass and country vocals with her sweet, soulful and evocative Kentucky twang. Performing with Bradley is singer and guitarist Steve Gulley, who performed with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver early in his career.
Singer-songwriter Sarah Siskind received widespread acclaim for her 2009 release, Say It Louder, which won Best Americana Album in the Nashville Music Awards.
Chris Smither’s unmistakable voice evokes a time and place both timeless and universal, rooted in the American blues and folk traditions. Moses Atwood channels the willing spirits of blues players in dim roadhouses, and his warm voice has drawn comparisons to Randy Newman and Van Morrison.
Tickets for all Tennessee Shines shows are $10 and available in advance at BrownPaperTickets.com. Remaining tickets are sold at the door on the night of the show, while supplies last. Children 14 and under accompanied by a parent are admitted free of charge.
