About Whiskey Jam

Founded in January 2011, Whiskey Jam has entertained Music City and its visitors for more than 13 years. The weekly original music series has hosted over 1,000 live events featuring thousands of performances by singers and songwriters. From its humble plywood stage in a bar just off of Nashville's famous Music Row, Whiskey Jam has featured artists such as Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Morgan Wallen, Dierks Bentley, Maren Morris, Kane Brown, Sam Hunt, Melissa Etheridge, Randy Travis, and many more.  Whiskey Jam’s artist and writer alumni, affectionately known as the “Jam Fam,” are credited with more than 420 #1 songs, 115 ACM Awards, 80 CMA Awards, and 36 Grammys. What began as a group of friends getting together to share songs and good times has evolved into an institution in the music community. One especially proud moment was Whiskey Jam’s 10th-anniversary celebration, which sold out the Ryman Auditorium without announcing a single performer. Whiskey Jam’s early support of today's superstars has led to collaborations with Luke Combs to provide the “Whiskey Jam x Bootlegger” Tailgate Party at all of Luke’s North American stadium shows. Whiskey Jam has also been featured as the opening slot on Old Dominion’s “No Bad Vibes” Tour, which featured up-and-coming artists like Frank Ray, Kassi Ashton, and Greylan James.  Whiskey Jam’s popular lifestyle merchandise line is worn proudly by members of the Jam Fam both on the stage and in the crowd.
