Introducing The Deli Nashville's year-end playlist!

2017 was a year of plenty for Nashville's music scene. So we decided to make a Spotify playlist to celebrate all the excellent music and hard-working musicians that call Music City home. From Americana to grooving funk, from indie superstars to the fairly obscure, here are 100 tracks we enjoyed this year from our Nashville neighbors! Be sure to follow the playlist AND follow The Deli Nashville on Spotify for more playlists in the future. And of course, please share with your friends! - Chris Thiessen

Best of Nashville Roots Acts: Tyler Childers and New Suede

Our Best of Nashville 2017 poll began last week with the Roots category and, after you-the-people cast your vote, we have the results to share with you!

Overall Poll winner (Jurors vote + Readers' vote): Tyler Childers

Readers' Poll Winner (Readers' Vote only): New Suede

Tyler Childers offers classic country folk songs that fit the modern context. His lyrics are imaginative and descriptive of elements of life in the country. With blue-grass oriented instrumentation including fiddle, banjo, mandolin, his style brings early Avett Brothers to mind. His songs blend the modern indie-folk impulse with the root elements of the bluegrass and country. Where his vocal tendencies and lyrics use the popular style of the alternative country/folk genre in its current form, the instrumentation and song structures harken back to truly rural country roots of his origins in a rural Kentucky coal mining town. 

New Suede is an act that's mastered the art of origin digging. "Taxi," the single they've released ahead of their new album, is a number heavily influenced by classic R&B and Jazz elements but molded into the form of an indie rock experiment with similarities to psychedelic/jazz/indie outfits like Homeshake or Mild High Club. The makeup of their work so far consists of groovy, easy rocking that dabbles in enough dissonance to keep us on our toes. Be on the lookout for their album, Ocean Drops, coming out on March 11th. 

The full list of nominees can be found under the streaming tracks.

Live On the Green Kicks Off Tonight!

It's Live On the Green season here in Nashville, which means lots of free music and cooler weather is on the horizon. Last night's torrential downpour came and went just in time to leave tonight's forecast wide open for a dry LOTG kickoff.

If you're not familiar with the month-long, weekly concert experience, the show starts at 6 pm in that grassy area at 3rd and Union downtown. Tonight's lineup starts big with Jon Cleary, Moon Taxi, and Dr. John, so be sure to show up early.

Next Thursday's show goes even bigger with The Dunwells, Delta Spirit, and The Wallflowers, so show up especially early for that one, too. In fact, maybe just bring a sleeping bag to tonight's show and save your seats for next week.
