by Dave Carew

The 6th annual Gram Parsons tribute concert (Gram InterNational Nashville VI) has announced its artists line-up for this year’s two-day event. To be held on Friday and Saturday, November 8 and 9, at Douglas Corner, this year’s event will commemorate Gram and his music 40 years after his death, and the passage of 40 years since Gram’s debut solo album GP.

Other don’t-miss artists will include The Burrito Brothers® (whose album Sound as Ever is Flying Burrito Brothers caliber), along with Bob Buchanan, who co-wrote the classic “Hickory Wind” with Gram while the two of them were in the ground-breaking International Submarine Band.

Ray Harris & the BSOBs

Jon Byrd

Don Pedigo

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
