2012

Can you remember when the hit tv show Nashville premiered on ABC in 2012, I know that’s a long time ago to remember, but that was also the same year Ed Sheeran came by the studio to do a live show for us before selling out the Ryman later that night. 

Back in 2012, not only did Nashville hold the first Grammy nomination concert away from Los Angeles, but Lightning’s own Moon Taxi released the album Cabaret and played a couple tracks in the studio.
