If you don’t live in Nashville, then you might have a preconceived notion of what the Music City is like: Bright neon lights of honky-tonks downtown, LP Field lit up for the CMA Music fest, the Opry next to the Bass Pro Shop and the palatial homesteads of country music stars.If you don’t live in Nashville, then you might have a preconceived notion of what the Music City is like: Bright neon lights of honky-tonks downtown, LP Field lit up for the CMA Music fest, the Opry next to the Bass Pro Shop and the palatial homesteads of country music stars.

But if you live in Nashville, then you know that country is just the tip of the musical iceberg. There are plenty of songwriters and artists here who don’t subscribe to the mainstream country model, for various reasons, and manage not only to carve out a niche, but to build a foundation that grows into a following, that eventually blossoms into a creative community.

Tenn Out of Tenn is a direct result of the impact (and music) this community creates here in Nashville. Kristen Dabbs (our advertising extraordinaire) and her partner in crime, husband and songwriter Trent, put together the first Tenn Out of Tenn tour and compilation in 2005. They decided the time was ripe for Volume 2 and we’re joining in this time round the block.

The artists hopping on board the 2008 Ten Out of Tenn Tour are as follows:

Griffin House
Butterfly Boucher
Andy Davis
Tyler James
Erin McCarley
Jeremy Lister
Trent Dabbs
Katie Herzig
KS Rhoads
Matthew Perryman Jones

That’s ten, right? Good.
