2014

Remember the infamous ice bucket challenge that went viral? That happened back in 2014, can you believe that! Nashville’s own, Taylor Swift, had the best selling album of year, in 2014, with 3.6 million copies sold of the album 1989.

In 2014, Spoon dropped by the Lightning 100 studio for an interview and live performance. James Bay played a secret show for some lucky Lightning 100 listeners before his two sold out shows with Hozier at Exit/In. We also had some outstanding artists play our Nashville Sunday Night series, like JOHNNYSWIM and LP.

Check out all the articles below if you are interested in knowing more about the incredible experiences Lightning 100 had in 2014!
