    • Devils with Strings: Mumford & Sons at War Memorial

      By: Emily J Ramey Photos By: Kelsey Naville It seems like the majority of the English-speaking world could at least tap a foot along to “Little Lion Man” these days. Beyond that, I’d be willing to wager that the majority of that majority’s opinion is that Mumford & Sons are some fierce musicians, the melancholy heroes of the...
    • Conversation Corner with Marthia Sides

      By: Andrew Vaughan Marthia Sides is not only one of the more dynamic performers to surface in Nashville, but she's also one of the more interesting. Marthia's from a musical theater and acting career in New York City. When not performing she trained as a stylist and now has numerous celebrity clients. But country music drew Marthia to Nashville where she's...
    • "For the Love of Songwriting" with Chuck Cannon

      By: Emily J Ramey Chuck Cannon ambles down from his house in the woods to meet me, dressed in his finest beach wear, the remainder of a day on the lake with his three children.  He shows me to his studio, a building separate from the house that once served as a garage, although you’d never know it: the stuccoed walls, rusted chandeliers, and dark...
    • Conversation Corner with Tammy Cochran

    • Conversation Corner with Star De Azlan

      By: Andrew Vaughan Star DeAzlan started out young. At 13 years of age she was singing open mic nights at the Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, Texas.  At 13, of course, she had no idea of the significance of the venue she was playing. She had no idea that this was the place where George Strait got his break. In fact, three members of Strait...
    • Music 3.0 - The Historical Premise

      By: Paul Schatzkin The glimmer of a new beginning came at the end. The "end" in this case is the final scene of a documentary called "Any Day Now," which follows the summer 2008 tour of a Nashville-based musicians' collective called "Ten Out Of Tenn."
    • Conversation Corner with Paul McCartney

      By: Andrew Vaughan It never stops for a Beatle -- a messy divorce, court dealing with iTunes, a new Beatles Monopoly game to promote, more awards and tributes, a very special concert in Israel, a new album project and more Beatles re-issues.  But despite all that, and maybe because of all that, Paul McCartney, legend and icon, does his very best to...
    • Top 10 Bonnaroo Artists I Wouldn't Miss for My Life and Other Bonnaroo Lists

      By: Emily J Ramey Although I've lived in Tennessee for most of my life (and in Nashville for the past three years) and claim to be an avid music listener/discoverer/lover, I have never been to Bonnaroo. Yes! It's true. Before I came to Nashville, Bonnaroo seemed like just an idea, it was a far off entity that didn't affect me much. I heard about it, it...

      By: Vinny Ribas 1. Bragging. It is not about how good you are! It's always about how you can help the person or the venue hiring you meet their goals!
    • Concert Cell Phone Etiquette

      By: Nikki Spalaris Okay, everyone... I think it’s time to "have the talk.” What talk, you ask? The etiquette one. This one is not about table manners or wearing white after Labor Day. No, this one is about a nasty addiction. An addiction that is so viral and yet complacent to the norm that we can't see the light at the end of...

    American Music Channel is “Giving Back” through creating philanthropic campaigns that align charitable organizations and artists to make a difference in our world.


    By : Andrew Vaughan

    As the whole world begins to focus on The United Kingdoms capital city the evangelical music fan in me has ben reminded of the feature I wrote here a couple of years ago on a few of London’s rock and roll hotels. A lot of questions followed, mostly music fans and tourists wanting more specific information.

    So, with the Olympics here and with thousands of you heading to London for the sports fiesta, this American based “Londoner” doesn’t want anyone to miss out on a huge opportunity to discover some of London’s greatest musical landmarks. So the next few Music City 411 blogs are going to see me waxing lyrical about the music heritage of my hometown. And for anyone visiting for the first time and wanting to spend some time exploring London’s musical history I’ve highlighted some safe and top-rated music-flavored hotels to make your trip as easy and rewarding as possible. I’ve stayed, eaten and drank in all the places I talk about and traipsed every street been in every venue mentioned and ridden every bus train and taxi recommended.

    So let’s start where it all started. The Beatles!
