Gram Parsons Tribute Concert (“Gram National”) coming this Friday to The 5 Spot in East Nashville
by Dave Carew
Don’t forget that “Gram National”—the annual Gram Parsons Tribute Concert that advocates for Gram’s induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame—will be held this Friday, November 5, at The 5 Spot in East Nashville, starting at 8 p.m.
Included in the lineup are Underground Nashville favorites Walter Egan and Chris James—along with Rick Lonow and John Terrence—who will be playing as “The Grampyres.” (They are scheduled to go on at 10:40 p.m.)
Other outstanding artists hitting one of Nashville’s favorite stages will be The Coal Men, Jennifer Brantley (who recently was chosen to record the only unrecorded Hank Williams, Sr. song), Derek Hoke, Don Gallardo & How Far West, American Aquarium, and more.
This is always one of the coolest live shows of the year. Don’t miss it!
