The Sept. 7 line-up includes the multi-platinum, multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated Country singer Martina McBride; multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Josh Osborne; multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and record producer Shane McAnally; up-and-coming Nashville sensation Ryan Kinder, and Country music artist Joe Denim.

“We are really excited to work with Storme and Joe in presenting a show that celebrates the Nashville music community in such an intimate format,” said Brent Hyams, Chief Operating Officer for the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and War Memorial Auditorium. “This is going to be fun.”
Warren, a 24-year veteran of the Nashville music industry who hosts the daily morning show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s "The Highway" and is known as the "Dick Clark of Country Music,” and Denim, a Country music artist who writes songs with witty lyrics and Shel Silverstein-like twists, like his hit “Pray For You,” will invite guests into their make-shift living room at War Memorial Auditorium each month.
The live musical variety show is a uniquely Nashville experience to showcase a diverse blend of talent from chart-topping artists, music legends, rising stars and accomplished songwriters. Every show promises musical performances, imaginative interviews, surprise guests and unpredictably funny experiences.
"This is about Nashville, its music and the moment. And no two moments will ever be the same. Rising stars, established legends, songwriters and entertainers of all types will share this iconic space together with the audience,” Warren said. “And the audience will always play a key role in each show. Joe and I will more than likely embarrass ourselves on a regular basis. We're kind of like the weird uncles you only have over for holiday dinners – fun to be around for a while but you're not real sorry when we leave."
“Imagine the coolest living room you’ve never been to," continues Denim. "There is a bar, comfy couches, an all-star band and a denim-wrapped baby grand piano. Musical guests and comedians from across all genres drop in to tell stories, sing songs and make jokes. All the while, Storme and I make the audience feel like companions at home, in between two plants, on a Thursday night live!”

Storme Warren is celebrating his 33rd year in broadcasting in 2017. You can hear him daily on SiriusXM Satellite Radio on "The Highway" as its morning show host. A 24-year veteran of the Nashville music industry, Warren is known as the "Dick Clark of Country Music” and can be found hosting numerous high profile events in Music City and around the globe, including Nashville's annual "Let Freedom Sing" Independence Day party and "The Bash on Broadway" New Year’s Eve celebrations. Music festivals all over North America, the Caribbean and Australia also recruit his talents as a live event emcee. Behind the scenes, Warren runs Stone Beaver Productions, a full-service video production company. His television credits as host and contributing talent include TNN, CNN, GAC and CMC. As a producer, Warren has created numerous live and recorded television concert events, DVDs and specials. As a proud member of the Nashville community, Warren serves on the board of directors for the T.J. Martell Foundation for cancer research. He is also a proud Eagle Scout. He and his wife, Allison, have two sons and live in Franklin, Tennessee.
Joe Denim is a Country music artist and comic host who writes songs with witty lyrics and Shel Silverstein-like twists not common on the Country circuit today, but musically consistent of course! Fans will recognize Joe for the irreverent break up hit “Pray For You,” which he wrote with Jaron Lowenstein, and now from his own new single, “If I Had A Million Dollars.” This infectious hit is starting its story on radio while the whimsical video, which takes viewers on a three-and-a-half-minute daydream to a land with yachts, jets and unlimited bowling, can be seen on CMT. Before launching his solo career, Joe, who is a classically trained pianist, played Hammond B3 and keys on the road with numerous Country stars including Steve Holy and Uncle Kracker. An active member of the songwriter community in Nashville, Joe writes regularly with the likes of Earl Bud Lee (“Friends In Low Places”), Bill Anderson (“Give It Away”), Wyatt Earp (“She’s Got A Way With Words”) and many more. An avid outdoorsman and hunter, Joe was taught from an early age to respect the environment and leave it better than he’s found it. Born in Indiana and raised on a working dairy farm in rural Ohio, Joe honed his harmonica skills calling the cows in to feeding every morning at 5 a.m.
