2015

From Kayne West announcing he is running for President in 2020 to Zayn Malik breaking the hearts of millions of fans by leaving One Direction it was a year to remember in music.

2015 was an exciting year for Lightning 100! We had the opportunity to have Walk the Moon in studio to play a stripped down version of “Shut Up and Dance”. Ben Folds played a secret show live on Lightning 100 from historic RCA Studio A, and Leon Bridges also played a secret show for a few lucky Lightning 100 listeners at William Colliers. These are just some of the highlights!

During our Nashville Sunday Night series, Ruston Kelly, All Them Witches, Borns, Future Thieves, John Oates, Elle King, and several other fantastic performers joined us at 3rd & Lindsley for some killer performances.
