THE MIDNIGHT SHOW WITH Dr. John, Lucinda Williams, The Cadillac Three, and Bonnie Bishop

Skyville Live hosted the ultimate after party on November 2 featuring Dr. John, Lucinda Williams, The Cadillac Three, and Bonnie Bishop for a late-night show taking place at midnight following the CMA Awards.

One of the hottest tickets in town on a night filled with events and after parties, the packed house was treated to intimate performances from Dr. John, Lucinda Williams, The Cadillac Three and Bonnie Bishop. Fans that could not get into the room for the stellar lineup were able to view the show from a jumbotron in the heart of Downtown Nashville. 

In true Skyville Live form, the evening was filled with stand-out performances and special collaborations from the eclectic lineup.  In addition to performing his classics like “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Black Widow Spider,” Dr. John was joined by Lucinda Williams for a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration on “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans” and brought the entire lineup on stage to close out the show with an energetic rendition of “Iko Iko.”

From Lucinda Williams performing “The Ghosts of Highway 20” and “Righteously” to The Cadillac Three’s southern rock of “The South” to Bonnie Bishop’s take on Little Feat’s “Dixie Chicken,” lucky revelers experienced unforgettable performances that have become a trademark of Skyville Live. Straight from a performance with Maren Morris on the CMA Awards stage, The McCrary Sisters also headed straight to the Skyville Live studio to lend their tremendous voices as backup vocals throughout the night.

Skyville Live saluted the magic of Music City with an unforgettable concert showcasing Nashville mainstays alongside fresh faces in town including Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Lennon & Maisy, Mark Collie, JD Souther and Pam Tillis.

If you needed yet another reason to love this creative city, this impressive lineup offered just that. “I don’t know where there is better music in Nashville,” gushed Tillis. Simply oozing with talent, each artist commanded the stage with high-energy performances of their original music mixed with fan-favorite covers to the sheer delight of the adoring live audience.

Carmack stunned the packed house with an electric guitar-heavy tribute to his idol by serving up a jaw-dropping rendition of B.B. King’s classic “Sweet Little Angel.” Another highlight of the stellar night included songwriting great Souther, as he made it hard not to sing-along to his iconic “Heartache Tonight,” first made famous by the Eagles. Each incredible artist had a front row seat proudly supporting each other during their solo spots, yet they united for a sweet closing number performing the Beatles’ staple “With a Little Help from My Friends.”

"SIX STRING SLINGERS"
Billy gibbons, orianthi, zz ward, frankie ballard, mike henderson

Skyville Live amped it up with a mesmerizing, guitar-fueled concert anchored by legendary ZZ Top frontman Billy F Gibbons. The unique live performance also featured country music rocker Frankie Ballard, internationally-acclaimed guitar slinger Orianthi, soulful powerhouse ZZ Ward, and Grammy-nominated songwriter and musician Mike Henderson.

Gibbons immediately set the tone for the show when he opened with “Waitin' for the Bus" and "Jesus Just Left Chicago,” followed by “Got Love If You Want It” and “Treat Her Right.” The guest artists followed suit with Ward performing her empowering “365 Days,” Ballard showing off his guitar chops on new song “Cigarette,” Orianthi slaying Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child,” and Henderson bringing the crowd to their feet in one of the evening’s true highlights with “Pay Bo Diddley,” featuring Skyville Live’s producer Wally Wilson on the keyboard.

Each of the featured performers commanded with their own material – so much so, in fact, that Gibbons was “in a daze” after Orianthi, and had to take a moment before returning to the stage with “Sharp Dressed Man,” alongside Ward and Orianthi. Gibbons then closed the show by leaving the online viewers and packed room speechless with “La Grange,” joined by Ballard and Henderson.

"GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FRIENDS"
WITH CYNDI LAUPER, INGRID MICHAELSON AND KELSEA BALLERINI

Grammy, Emmy and Tony Award winner Cyndi Lauper qualified as well for Understatement of the Year honors. Midway through the show, after several standing ovations, the legendary entertainer scanned the studio audience and observed, "Well, we're doing good so far." In fact, Lauper and her guest artists, country star-on-the-rise Kelsea Ballerini and innovative singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, filled the hour-long program with one unforgettable performance after the other as viewers online around the world savored every moment. As a nod toward Nashville, home of Skyville Live, Lauper sang several country music classics from her upcoming new album, Detours, sharing that the songs were "from a time period when blues and country walked hand in hand, before Elvis cut the door down." All three women rocked the room with their own material, performing solo and in combinations. Playing dulcimer and backed by the stellar Skyville Live band, Lauper proved beyond doubt why her voice is one of the great instruments of modern popular music on "True Colors." Then, joined onstage by Kelsea Ballerini and midway through the song by Michaelson, she closed with her anthem "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" as balloons bounced and tumbled throughout the audience.

PATTI AUSTIN, ANDRA DAY, DELBERT MCCLINTON, MIKE FARRIS AND MIESA

A soulful music extravaganza filled with powerful performances and awe-inspiring collaborations from Andra Day, Patti Austin, Miesa, Delbert McClinton and Mike Farris. Day presented outstanding performances of songs from her smash debut album Cheers To The Fall. Austin also combined spectacular chops, a compelling stage charisma and an infectious sense of humor, triggering standing ovations. One of the many memorable highlights of the evening included Day joining Austin for a duet on "Unforgettable," the first of a two-song tribute to Natalie Cole. Miesa joined them on "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)," with all three locked on dazzling harmony during the tongue-tying a cappella vocal break. Subbing for Sam Moore, who was unable to make the show due to travel difficulties, Mike Farris displayed a show-stopping, searing intensity in his vocals. Delbert McClinton tore down the house with his own brand of bluesy, old-school soul. The night proved a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the artists as well as the audience. Austin commented that "live is always spectacular when you have the highest-quality artists making the highest quality music with the highest-quality musicians and the highest-quality backup singers."

"A TRIBUTE TO GREGG ALLMAN"
GREGG ALLMAN, LITTLE BIG TOWN, TAJ MAHAL AND CHRIS STAPLETON

In a city known for its epic concert events, Skyville Live staked its claim for show-of-the-year honors. Streamed live, the first installment of Skyville Live's second season featured CMA Award winners Little Big Town and Chris Stapleton and Grammy-winning blues legend Taj Mahal in a musical tribute to Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame member Gregg Allman. Like all previous Skyville Live shows, the concert took place in an intimate setting that gave the studio audience and online viewers around the world a rare insight into each performer's artistry. Among the evening's highlights were Mahal's rendering of "Cakewalk," playing Resonator guitar with tuba accompaniment, and "Walking Blues" in a solo interpretation that would have done Robert Johnson proud. Recently nominated for three Grammy Awards, Little Big Town dazzled with impeccable harmonies on "Girl Crush" and their earlier smash "Boondocks." And Stapleton's electrifying vocal on the Allman Brothers classic "Whipping Post" proved why he has been newly crowned king of Country music and picked up four more Grammy nominations. Allman traded verses with Mahal on the hard-rockin' "Statesboro Blues," and brought Little Big Town onto the stage to add spectacular backup on "Midnight Rider." He held the spotlight on his own with "These Days," and the night ended with everyone onstage for a supernova rendition of "One Way Out."
