This past weekend, Charlie Worsham hosted “Midnite Jamboree Hosted by Charlie Worsham Featuring ??” with different surprise performances by special guests Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, including Eric Church, Vince Gill, Kid Rock, Hunter Hayes, Brandy Clark, Aubrie Sellers, the Brothers Osborne, Brent Cobb, Margo Price and Lucie Silvas. The event was held at the iconic Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broadway in downtown Nashville Thursday and Friday evening, and was moved to a larger venue, aVenue, Saturday evening to accommodate the massive amount of fans who wanted to attend.

As long as he can remember, Worsham has had a deep love and appreciation for the history and impact that Ernest Tubb has had on country music, specifically with the record store he opened in the ’40’s, and the Jamboree that he started in that record shop, which over the years developed a reputation for giving struggling young country artists the opportunity to shine.

“This weekend, we shined a light on one of country music’s most hallowed landmarks,” Worsham said. “Thank you so much to the loyal fans who came out, and to the incredibly gracious artists who joined me on stage. I am blessed everyone put the music first, followed their hearts and let some big magic happen over the past few days. My heart and soul are overflowing with gratitude, joy and love.”

In addition to hosting “Midnite Jamboree” Worsham just completed his first album in three years, with release dates being announced soon.

CMA Fest Day 2 Wrap Up!

chase bryant chuck wicks

The CMA Music Festival is in full swing and day two was a scorcher. Temps easily reached the low to mid 90’s. Add that to the hundreds of thousands of sweaty bodies, the lack of shade along with the abundance of blacktop, and you’ve got a whole lotta sweaty, gross, stinky bodies willing to brave it all for a glimpse of their favorite star and some great music.

We got a late start yesterday, thanks to the heat, but still managed to take in a few shows. Riverfront rocked with performances from Chase Bryant and Thompson Square. If you’ve never seen Chase Bryant, you’re missing out, especially if you’re a guitar enthusiast because he can really tear into on. Thompson Square is adorable as ever, and their quirky style made them even more fun to watch.

Afterwards, we head over the Chevy Cruz stage to catch RaeLynn and Chuck Wicks before heading over to the HGTV Lodge to see Charles Kelley perform solo for fans. RaeLynn is adorable, and we can’t wait to see what music she’ll come up with next. Chuck Wicks, fresh from the Iron Man, has a great relationship with the crowd, looking at fans and getting personal with all those in eyesight.

The nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium were a showcase of unique talent. Frankie Ballard ripped through the National Anthem via electric guitar solo before iconic Clint Black took the stage to perform hits and new music. Chris Stapleton proved why he’s Male Vocalist of the year, and rightly so. His low-key set had the crowd on their feet singing along to every word. Sam Hunt gave a show that I’m certain was fueled by an energy drink. He belted out hits like “House Party” and “Leave the Night On” while running around the massive stage and getting personal with the fans in the front. Eric Church, always a favorite, performed a much more understated set than years past, that was much too brief. Before bringing out legend Hank Williams Jr., Chris Janson got the crowd ready to party with “Buy Me a Boat” and Justin Moore performing “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” Hank partied hard and brought Chris Janson back out, showing the younger fans who Bocephus really is.Carrie Underwood closed out the show with a rocking set that included “Smoke Break,” “Church Bells” and more!
