Music on Television | 4.22-4.26

As you may have noticed, this feature was absent from the site last week. Many late night talk shows took the week off, so we followed suit. Two weeks ago, we revamped the format just a bit. We hope it’s been more streamlined and accessible!

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.

This week in Music on Television, we’ve got a pretty eclectic group of recommendations. From great emerging artists to top 40 staples, we dare you not to find something to check out!
