Third Wave of SXSW Artists Announced | Nashville’s Still Reppin’ Hard!

SXSW is looming on the horizon. In just under two months, the entire indie scene will descend on Austin. We brought you news of the first wave of Nashville artists announced back in November, the second in December, and now we’ve got the third (and, I believe, last) big group announcement. Once again, there’s plenty of Nashville love, and this just might be the most eclectic group of bands yet! The lineup gets even more exciting with each announcement, and we’ve posted music from all the new bands below. Congrats to all of the talented bands and friends of the site who will be performing this year, we know you’re going to make our city proud!
