Music on Television | 4.8-4.13

Sorry we’re a day late getting this feature posted. As you can probably see, we’re revamping the format a bit this week. Just like before, we’re bringing you our picks for the best musical performances on television for the week, with an essential recommendation and a bonus or two each night. We’ve streamlined things a bit to focus on the most important info, and hopefully made the feature a little easier to navigate.

Each band name still links to Spotify for a further preview. Additionally, we’ve more clearly placed the live show info. This is something we’ve been adding in for awhile, but, in case you didn’t notice, you can find dates and ticket links for band performances in Nashville and surrounding areas.

It’s another great week for music on television! We’ve got old legends, young Grammy winners, friends of the site, and even some Nashville artists representing, starting tonight with Escondido!
