  • Every Sunday morning, 10 am to noon at Whiskey Bent Saloon, 306 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37201, it's the great songwriter show, HIDDEN NASHVILLEHosted by American trio, The Chick'N Dix (featuring Janet Swain Cox, Charles Cox and Sam Cooper), this FREE show feature some of Nashville's finest songwriters for two hours downtown where most of the other venues feature acts doing nothing but cover tunes. Street parking downtown on Sundays in Nashville is FREE, too, so come early!

    The short back-story:  Until January, 2019, when it was closed, most of the songwriter community in Nashville had just one venue actually left on Music Row to play what they wrote, regardless of genre, style, etc....Bobby's Idle Hour.  This was where one could discover a future John Prine, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zant, etc...  When it closed, it had just developed a reputation for being a destination for Nashville's visitors as well as the many locals who patronized it, even though it was in business for 70 years.   Hit songwriters and unknowns alike shared the stage there.  In an effort to bring a little bit of Music Row to the visitors downtown, HIDDEN NASHVILLE was conceived. 

    Our weekly guests are all musical treasures, including some of the most successful and entertaining hit writers in town.  We'll have a weekly local spotlight songwriter and a featured #1 hit songwriter, both to be announced here.  Sandwiched between them are weekly regulars, The Chick'N Dix and the ever-talented Marc-Alan Barnette.  Here, you'll hear the people who wrote the songs, some being monster hits and some being the best things you've never gotten to hear on your radio at all.  The venue is awesome!  It's a great way to kick off your Sunday, whether a Nashvillian or a visitor

    ALSO--It's radio!....The shows will be recorded for broadcast each week by WFMC Jams, a station broadcast not just over the entire country, but around the world, both on the internet and on several terrestrial stations.  The broadcast of each week's performance will be Thursday evenings, 8-10 pm central time!  Please tune in and/or feel free to start listening part.  Go to https://www.wfmcjams.com/!

    Thanks for sharing this with everyone!--Sam Cooper
