2017

2017 was a big year! The Nashville Predators snagged the Western Conference Championships for the first time ever! Nashville’s population became so big in 2017, we surpassed Memphis and became the largest city in Tennessee.

While Nashville was busy growing and the Preds were busy dominating the ice, Lightning had special guests try to take over the station. A few of those artists were Margo Price, the band Bully, and Lake Street Dive. We had live in-studio performances from several outstanding artists like Vance Joy, Gallant, and ZZ Ward just to name a few.
