Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song continues at Green Valley Ranch this Friday. A fun and unique experience akin to Nashville’s Bluebird Café, Nashville Unplugged gives guests an intimate look at the thought process behind some of country music’s most well-known songs
Featuring country music’s most successful songwriters and the crowd favorite, “Songs from a hat,” where an original song is written on-the-spot, based on audience suggestions, Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song is hosted by Brian McComas, who wrote and sang “I Could Never Love You Enough,” and Aaron Benward of Blue County, who wrote and sang “That’s Cool.” All performances begin at 8 p.m. and there is a $5 cover at the door. Guests must be 21 years or older.
