Check out our first live show of 2018 and the first from our Roots on the Road series, as we stage Roots at leading venues all around Nashville TN. This one comes from the City Winery with a lineup that's loaded and very Music City. We open with new music from smooth rocking country soul man Derek Hoke. And we close with a celebration of the new album Arkansas by rock and roll hall of famer John Oates.

In between, fresh bluegrass as the harmony focused Ms Adventure plays its debut show in their Nashville home town. And the ghost of Hank Williams is clearly communicating with the legendary Greg Garing, who brings a fiery hillbilly band to the stage. It was a grand sold out night, and there was wine.
