A tree fell on Matt’s house. He and Shawn discuss that, plus Zeke Duhon and Kylie Rothfield at ALoft Hotel, the shows they missed out on, Emblem 3 and more! They also feature an interview and an amazing performance by Striking Matches and a hilarious interview with local improv group LOLNashville!
Striking Matches, made up of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, came to Nashville simply to play music. In December 2012, Striking Matches made their debut on the Grand Ole Opry where they have subsequently played more than twenty times. The duo has had six songs featured on ABC’s hit show Nashville. They became the first artist signed to the newly launched I.R.S. Records Nashville with their debut full length effort produced by T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller to be released in 2014.
LOL Nashville is a short and long-form improv comedy troupe. Every part of every show is unscripted and is made up on the spot with the help of suggestions from the audience. Every improv show they have performed has been sold out, which meant the troupe has had to secure a large performance space for the rest of the year.
It's Oscar Sunday, and Matt and Shawn briefly talk about the movies they want to catch up on. They also join in #PimpinJoy week in honor of their shout out from The Bobby Bones Show, talk about Shawn meeting Sugar Ray Leonard, Matt getting on Nashville and more!
And this week, two #NUartists return to premier new music! The very first guest Nashville ever featured, Matt Bednarsky calls in to talk about his new album; then, the show's first international guest, Jamie Meyer calls in from Sweden to talk about his newest single!
Country Radio Seminar, the world’s largest Country radio event, was this past week at the Nashville Convention Center. Matt and Shawn were there, and on this week's episode they take you behind the scenes, into the after parties and talk to some up-and-coming stars of country music.
Throughout the episode, the guys will feature interviews with Natalie Stovall and the Drive, Angel Mary and the Tennessee Warewolves, Matt Farris, Ayla Brown, Maggie Rose and Will Hoge!
This week Matt and Shawn gear up for the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) by catching up with hot new country band Parmalee as they celebrate their number one song "Carolina." They also get on soapboxes about equal rights, and discuss Matt appearing in a chicken commercial.
And this week's #NUartist is Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes! Formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee, the band released a successful full-length studio album, Civilized Man, in 2011. They have just wrapped recording of their sophomore full-length studio album, Kid Tiger, which was engineered and co-produced by Vance Powell (Jack White, The White Stripes, The Raconteurs).

This week Nashville Underground Radio relocates to The Sound Shelter in Franklin! With a professional space, PLUS video cameras, be prepared for a bigger, better show!
For this special episode, this week's featured artist is the Cardboard Kids. Their debut album Echo Boomer was recorded at The Sound Shelter Studio, working with the likes of Joe Costa (Ben Folds), Tres Sasser and Ruby Amanfu. The debut record, in its entirety, is an infectious and raw frenzy, mirrored with a steady pulse that pounds as an anthem for a new brand of Rock & Soul.
Matt Bednarsky was Nashville Underground Radio's first #NUartist ever! On March 4th, he is releasing his new, full-length album on iTunes! The record, entitled A Bigger Picture, contains 10 songs, as well as collaborations with the likes of GRAMMY-nominated producer Ed Cash.
