Opening the show was five-piece combo Los Coast, comprising of Trey Privott (lead vocals, guitar), John Courtney (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Megan Hartman (bass), Damien Llanes (drums), and Natalie White (keys). This psychedelic-pop-soul group had a diverse audience moving and grooving to their unique sound! Be sure to check out their new album coming in June 2019! The band stopped by the studio before a three-night run at Ryman Auditorium.

Blues Rock Musician Gary Clark Jr. never seems to disappoint with his live performances and tonight was no exception! Coming on stage with his signature hat and relaxed style, he roars the crowd into anticipation with songs from his 2012 Blak and Blu album as well as a selection from the new This Land album.

Gary Clark Jr. will continue his This Land tour in Australia and will return back to the U.S. in May at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN.
