WSM radio in Nashville has announced that they will broadcast Alan Jackson’s debut bluegrass show next week from the Station Inn. It will be available live on AM 650 and via online audio streaming on Tuesday, August 27 at 10:30 p.m. (EDT) – 9:30 local time.
This will be the first in what are expected to be many live appearances in support of Jackson’s upcoming release, The Bluegrass Album, due September 24 on his ACR label.
The show next Tuesday will reunite the country crooner with the all-star bluegrass band that tracked with him in the studio: Sammy Shelor on banjo, Adam Steffey on mandolin, Rob Ickes on reso-guitar, Tim Disman on bass, Tim Crouch on fiddle, and Scott Coney on guitar. Ronnie Bowman and Don Rigsby will also be on hand for harmony vocals.
We plan to have a correspondent and photographer at the show to capture the vibe as another major country artist brings the bluegrass. And hats off to Jackson for coming to such an iconic bluegrass club for this launch, instead of any number of larger and more glamorous venues in Nashville.
The WSM signal reaches much of the central and southern US at 650 AM, and the live stream can be accessed at wsmonline.com worldwide.
