You may have heard that we play all local artists every single Monday from 6:15pm to 8:00pm. That's our show, the615, hosted by none other than Lightning Casey. You also may know that over 30% of our daily programming comes from great local artists. That's folks like Jason Isbell, Sheryl Crow, John Prine, Jack White, Moon Taxi, Kings of Leon, Margo Price, not to mention the up-and-comers that you haven't even heard of yet.

But we'll bet you hadn't heard this. In celebration of our great city, we're expanding 615 day to the entire weekend. That's right – Friday, June 12th through Monday, June 15th we'll be playing all locals, all day long. Tune in to support your local artist community at 100.1FM or stream live.

615 Day Weekend is powered by the world's original vintage guitar store, Gruhn Guitars, located in Nashville, TN for 50 years.
