It’s official. The world now knows what we’ve all known for a long time; Nashville has a fantastic music scene beyond mainstream country such as T-Swift and our more radio-friendly rock friends like Jack White, The Black Keys, and Kings of Leon.
And now there’s a carefully curated iTunes playlist that you can share with friends to prove how nationally viable your local taste happens to be! So get ready to both be validated and (admit it) a little annoyed when your favorite local indie act breaks it big!
The complete list of Nashville Indie Spotlight artists:
Mindy Smith, Heather Bond, Shannon LaBrie, The Kicks, The Vespers, Lara Landon, Escondido, Paper Route, Erin McCarley, Emily West, Matthew Perryman Jones, Kate Tucker, K.S. Rhoads, Trent Dabbs, Katie Herzig, Amy Stroup, Courtney Jaye, Holly Williams, The Saint Johns, Leagues, Sandra McCracken, Brooke Waggoner
It’s a GREAT deal, too. 22 songs for just $7.99. So hurry up and buy it already! Plus all the featured albums on the list are also on iTunes promo for a limited time, so get to downloading. You can also check out more details on Facebook if that’s how you like to show your love.
And, if you’re looking for more great new music to get you through the home stretch of 2012, be sure to check out our recap of the best December releases in our New Release Spotlight | December 2012, Part 1 (Part 2 coming soon!)! Aside from certain party-starting popstar, they’re national, not Nashville, releases (we know better than to put records out in the slowest sales month), but great finds nonetheless!
