Ep.2 / S04 – MAN IN BLACK special. Featuring NEW footage from stops along the way on the 2014 Johnny Cash tour from Nashville, TN : The Cash Cabin and The Whippoorwill.
Meet Johnny Cash's friend Loney Hutchins as we pay him a visit at his restaurant, music venue, and art gallery THE WHIPPOORWILL in Gallatin, TN. Loney performs one of his songs with the help of lovely musicians and friends, Benita Hill and Kacey Jones as seen on previous episodes of our show at Viva Nashville USA.
We truly enjoy his good company, music, and great art. His life experiences and musical knowledge are deeply fascinating. It's no wonder that he's part of the Johnny Cash tour. You can find out more and hear him play Johnny Cash songs at The Whippoorwill. Tell him Viva Nashville USA sent ya'll :)
Our friend and host of the show Briana Kidwell invited us out to listen to some of her new upcoming songs being recorded at the CASH CABIN STUDIO in Hendersonville, TN. It was a great time visiting such a cool historical site with top notch talented musicians, such as: Dave Roe on bass (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yokam, John Mellencamp) and Kenny Vaugh on guitar (Lucinda Williams, Marty Stuart). We love Briana's tunes and can't wait to hear the final mix. Stay tuned for more right here.
Johnny Cash built the original cabin in 1978. It was then, as it is now, a place to find solace and make music. In 1993, while in production for the first of AMERICAN RECORDINGS CD’s,produced by Rick Rubin, Johnny had recording gear installed.
The studio is now owned and operated by his son, John Carter Cash (who's been on a previous episode of our show). The Cash Cabin sits on forty-acres of woods and fields. John Carter raises European Fallow Deer on the property. There is also a large fishing pond stocked with Large-Mouth Bass, Bream, and Catfish.
Previous artists who've recorded include: Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Del McCoury Band, Merle Haggard, George Jones, John Prine, Ronnie Dunn, Earl Scruggs, Elvis Costello, Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Pat McLaughlin, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Tanya Tucker, Eddie Money, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Eric Hamilton Band, Bela Fleck, Larry Gatlin and The Galtin Brothers, Kellie Pickler, Dave Edmunds, and many more. Plus visitors Dolly Parton, Steve Earle, Joaquin Phoenix, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, and others. Find out more at www.johncartercash.com/page5 and tell 'em Viva Nashville recommended you.
Ep. 1 / S03 (Jan. 2014) - Happy Valentine's Day special from VivaNashvilleUSA.com. Featuring the queen of bluegrass, Rhonda Vincent discussing her new 2-Disc set with a mixture of Bluegrass & Country songs plus duets with Willie Nelson and Daryle Singletary.
Five-time Grammy nominee Rhonda Vincent, the new Queen of Bluegrass as deemed by the Wall Street Journal, also mentions her duets with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and growing up with her musical family in Missouri. The project, appropriately titled "ONLY ME", serves as a reminder why Rhonda Vincent & The Rage is the most awarded band in bluegrass music. "ONLY ME" is available where all music is sold as of January 28, 2014 and also on Rhonda's website http://rhondavincent.com/.
"The Bluegrass pickers on this song are some of the best that I have ever heard. When I think of Bluegrass, this is the sound that I hear," says Willie Nelson. "Rhonda's voice is beautiful. I am thankful for her letting me be a part of it all." We'd like to thank Rhonda for a wonderful time and a fun interview. We thoroughly enjoy her new 2-CD release.
We also catch up with special friend of the show and previous co-host, Rhinestone queen, Briana Kidwell. She talks about her upcoming recording and work with the Nashville Songwriters Association. Fans of our show will recognize some of our clips with Briana at our friend, fashion couture designer, MANUEL's previous store.

ERIC HUGHES "PAYCHECK BOOGIE"
Great songs and memorable boogie rhythms from multi talented Memphis
musician, Eric Hughes. From great vocals to slide guitar, electric
guitar, acoustic guitar, harmonica, and drums, Eric is a true blues man
and all around cool guy!
He's sure to win over any blues or R&B loving fan. We love his nitty
gritty upbeat blues sounds and humor on the title song "Paycheck
Boogie", "Zombie Song", and the outrageous "You Cook 'Em, I Caught 'Em"
(which he performs live on a previous episode of our show).
"Gone to Mississippi" for it's awesome blood pumping melody, tempo, harp, slide guitar, and blues swagger.
