Earlier this week (7/13), the Emmy-nominated, groundbreaking online music series Skyville Live saluted the magic of Music City with an unforgettable concert showcasing Nashville mainstays alongside fresh faces in town including Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Lennon & Maisy, Mark Collie, JD Souther and Pam Tillis.

If you needed yet another reason to love this creative city, this impressive lineup offered just that. “I don’t know where there is better music in Nashville,” gushed Tillis. Simply oozing with talent, each artist commanded the stage with high-energy performances of their original music mixed with fan-favorite covers to the sheer delight of the adoring live audience.

Carmack stunned the packed house with an electric guitar-heavy tribute to his idol by serving up a jaw-dropping rendition of B.B. King’s classic “Sweet Little Angel” seen here (pw: video).

Another highlight of the stellar night included songwriting great Souther, as he made it hard not to sing-along to his iconic “Heartache Tonight,” first made famous by the Eagles.

Each incredible artist had a front row seat proudly supporting each other during their solo spots, yet they united for a sweet closing number performing the Beatles’ staple “With a Little Help from My Friends.”
