Mention “The Exotics” to many Nashville and Middle Tennessee natives who were coming of age in the ‘60s and early ‘70s and they immediately recall good times. Good times at high school dances, outdoor driveway “combos” at a friend’s house, summer pool parties, and college fraternity and sorority events across the Southeast.

(featuring Senator Jack Johnson)
The Austin Brothers strive to take their audience on a country music journey back in time. From Bob Wills in the 1940’s to George Strait in the 1990’s, this quartet of veteran musicians enjoys putting a modern twist on country classics.
With Tony Paoletta on steel guitar, Steve Holland on drums, Shawn Pody on bass and Jack Johnson on guitar, this group will get your toe tappin’ and might even have you two steppin’ before the end of the show.
See Charlie Worsham on a stage and you immediately understand what he understood from the beginning: It's where he's meant to be. For him, music wasn't just a thing, it was the only thing. "I kind of feel like I didn't have much choice. The songs... the playing... those were the only things that ever really kept my attention." As a ridiculously talented multi-instrumentalist and student of great songs, he's developed a unique modern country sound built around the traditional acoustic instruments he grew up on.
Charlie's first single, Could It Be, is at country radio now and available on iTunes. He is currently writing and recording to finish out his major label debut album for Warner Music Nashville. After studying at Berklee School of Music in Boston, he moved South to Nashville. For the last two years, he's divided his time between writing songs, being an in-demand studio musician for other artists and playing his music live — sharing stages across the country with Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and others.
The New York Daily News calls Beatlemania Now "extraordinary". Beatlemania Now is the ultimate celebration of the 60's and the group that helped shape them.....The Beatles! Recapture the mood and excitement as Beatlemania Now meticulously performs incredible note for note renditions of Beatles classics throughout their career. Their music transcends time and generations! A must see and hear experience for all ages!
