Season Two kickoff of Nashville House Concerts with SiriusXM's Storme Warren, singer Shelly Fairchild, and bandleader Chris Roberts, happened tonight.
The first performance of Music City's new music and variety series showcasing chart-topping artists, music legends, rising stars and accomplished songwriters, featured country music duo Thompson Square ("Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not"), who has a combined 10 chart singles on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts; premiere roots rock band Freddy Jones Band; and rising songwriter Abe Stoklasa, who toured with Billy Currington and collaborated with Marc Beeson on Lady Antebellum’s “Lie With Me."
Every show promises musical performances, imaginative interviews, surprise guests, and unpredictable fun. Here's a clip of Freddy Jones Band performing their song "Take the Time"
Some pics from the show:
Verdict: Having gone to several of Season One's shows, this one was just as awesome. I'm looking forward to the next show for sure.
