MCR is back on the Road with an all new show from that famous Nashville crossroads and musical watering hole known as 3rd & Lindsley. It's a night heavy on traditional rock and roll, with a sweaty but poetic opening set by Louisiana raised, Nashville based Kevin Gordon. And the night closes out with Will Kimbrough, Tommy Womack and the other mega talents who make up Daddy.

In between, two incredibly talented young women each on their way in their own way. Katie Pruitt is a newly signed songwriter with a canon of a voice and self-investigative songs. Lillie Mae is a star on Third Man records making deeply original country music.
