2013

In 2013, Nashville was booming, in fact, that year the New York Times called Nashville the “it” city which attracted many people like Vance Joy and Jake Bugg, who came from the UK, and came by to do a secret show.

In 2013 one of our Nashville’s neighbors had the best selling album of the year, Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” sold 2.4 million copies. But another great album that came out that year was Passenger’s All the Little Lights, which a few lucky Lightning 100 listeners got listen to when Passenger performed at William Collier’s.
