Nashville House Concerts Launches Second Season this Fall

Nashville House Concerts, Music City’s newest live music and variety show at the historic War Memorial Auditorium, named “Nashville’s best new concert series” by the Nashville Convention & Visitor Corporation last year, returns for a second 10-show season starting Thursday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. and continuing the first Thursday of every month through June 2019.

“We’re really excited to grow our show for this second season, adding some new members to the team and playing with the format a bit,” said Brent Hyams, Chief Operating Officer for the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and War Memorial Auditorium. “We want to keep the show fresh while bringing back some of the segments that audiences loved last year.”

Storme Warren, a 25-year veteran of the Nashville music industry who hosts the morning show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s “The Highway” and is known as the “Dick Clark of Country Music,” will return as host of Nashville House Concerts, inviting a variety of special guests to drop by the intimate, living room set, catch up on what’s new, and perform select songs.

“I can’t wait to get back to War Memorial Auditorium for a second season of Nashville House Concerts,” Warren said. “Anyone who joined us last year knows how much I love the room and its incredible history. The Nashville House Concerts series is yet another chapter in that history, taking audiences into what makes Nashville so unique – the music, the songwriting, the stories. It’s intimate, interactive and not to be missed.”

Joining Warren this season are singer and songwriter Shelly Fairchild and songwriter and actor Chris Roberts, with Roberts leading the “It Is What It Is Band,” formed each month from some of the best touring musicians in Nashville.

“The Nashville House Concerts series really gives fans and visitors to Nashville the opportunity to get to know artists at all levels, from the emerging talents to the legends,” Fairchild said. “I’m excited to join Storme and Chris each month to sing with our incredible house band and put together a fun and unforgettable experience.”

The Sept. 6 line-up includes Country music duo Thompson Square, the premiere roots rock act Freddy Jones Band, rising songwriter Abe Stoklasa and more. Every show promises musical performances, imaginative interviews, surprise guests and unpredictable fun.

“So far, the response to our second season from artists and managers is encouraging as we’re inviting a wide variety of performers to stop by,” said Christi Dortch, Executive Vice President of Programming and Sales for TPAC and War Memorial Auditorium. “Our vibe has always been that you never know who will show up, and we want to keep the audience on their toes with new artists and surprise celebrity visits.”

Coca-Cola is the presenting sponsor of the series and B.B Kings is a sponsor as well. Nashville House Concerts take place on the first Thursday of each month, from Sept. 2018 to June 2019. Shows are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. CT. Dates for the 10-show, monthly series include:
