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!

Eric Church will liven CMA Fest week for a second year in a row with his Eric Church Pop Up Store in East Nashville (address: 218 South 11th Street) beginning Thursday, June 9th and running through Sunday, June 12th with operating hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The concession, which will mark Church’s fourth pop up store in Nashville over the last year, will offer rare items for purchase, including his custom These Boots by Lucchese boot line and signature Gibson guitar, the Hummingbird Dark. Also available are select pieces from The Highway to Home furniture collection, an original furniture line created by Church.

This year’s era-themed shop will showcase each album throughout the four-time ACM winner and seven-time GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter’s career and will highlight the 10th anniversary of his gold-certified debut album, Sinners Like Me by featuring extremely limited special edition items celebrating the 2006 release that produced three Top 20 hits.

Fans who visit Church’s Facebook page Wednesday, June 8th at 11 a.m. CST will get a virtual tour of the pop up store via Facebook Live. Those who tune in to the live stream will get to preview the store’s select Highway to Home pieces and the These Boots by Lucchese line along with other unique merchandise in this year’s Eric Church Pop Up Store.

One of Church’s extremely limited signature Gibson Guitars, the Hummingbird Dark, along with matching customized hard case will be available to purchase for those who visit the Eric Church Pop Up Store. The sleek custom design was debuted in the music video for “Record Year,” Church’s current single that Rolling Stone named, “the most moving moment” on Mr. Misunderstood. Church is among legendary artists Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris and Pete Townshend who have also been asked to design their own guitars.

Church’s Highway to Home furniture collection was inspired by his love of the road and exploration of the world combined with family traditions. “Staying connected with my roots has always been important to me and Highway to Home is a natural extension of my family heritage,” says Church. “My dad was in the industry. My first job was in a furniture plant, so yes, it is in my blood. This project is truly about building a home around those experiences and memories that make up our lives.” The Highway to Home pieces available for purchase will include such items as accent chests, bar cabinets, accent tables, bar stools and ottomans.

Supporters of the Chief who visit the shop also have the opportunity to pick up a pair of boots from Church’s signature line, These Boots by Lucchese. The line was developed in September of 2014 after Church visited the Lucchese factory to infuse his personal style into 10 different – his and hers—designs. Each pair is handmade by Lucchese artisans in El Paso, Texas and has Church’s handwritten lyrics to “These Boots” etched into the sole. Previously, These Boots by Lucchese were only available to VIP ticketholders at his concerts and at select pop up stores, however they can now be previewed online at http://www.ericchurch.com/theseboots.

Proceeds from specialty items (not including the Lucchese boots) at the Eric Church Pop Up Store will benefit the Chief Cares Fund, a 501c3 non-profit organized by Church and his wife Katherine that serves over 2.5 million people around the globe with charitable giving. For more information on Chief Cares Fund, visit http://www.ericchurch.com/chiefcares.
