About Shelly Fairchild
Shelly Fairchild isn’t new to the industry – but she’s far from old news. A staple in the Nashville music community, the Clinton, Mississippi native hit the scene with her debut album, “Ride,” on which her soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alternative country spawned a Top 40 hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” Her second release, “Ruby’s Money,” is steeped in a thick groove with elements of funk, and her latest release, “Buffalo,” marks a milestone in her life and career as “the most honest record” she’s ever made. A longtime hidden gem in the trove of Nashville musicians, Fairchild continues to keep her head and her heart pointing up to the sky. Between touring across the country with the likes of Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban, singing background vocals for Martina McBride, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Crystal Gayle and others, and being named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “Top 10 Artists You Need to Know,” it is clear that Shelly Fairchild is just getting started.
About Chris Roberts
Singer, songwriter, and actor, Chris Roberts is one of the truest talents in music today. A Montana native, Roberts carved a niche for himself in New York before landing in Nashville, where he is currently writing and recording songs. While in New York, Roberts appeared in the Broadway production “The Civil War,” alongside Larry Gatlin. A mentor to Roberts, Gatlin encouraged him to pursue his recording career in Nashville. With help from Gatlin and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon, Roberts formed the vocal trio One Flew South with Eddie Bush and Royal Reed. The trio’s debut album, “Last of the Good Guys,” was released in 2008, and the single, “My Kind of Beautiful,” climbed the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. They shared the stage with artists like Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet, and Dave Mathews. Roberts is a respected songwriter and is quickly becoming a sought-after producer in country music. His voice is classic, effortless, and inspiring. Recently, Roberts released “The Way West,” his own album with record label Catch This Music and continues to share his talents with the music industry.
The historic War Memorial Auditorium is managed by the nonprofit Tennessee Performing Arts Center, which is supported by institutional sponsors Nissan North America and Coca-Cola and funded in part by support from the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission.
