A new series looks to blend local history and live music in downtown Gallatin.
Songs and Stories at Historic Stonewall will take place on the second Saturday of each month from June through August.
Each performance in the series will take place in the courtyard outside the historic home, located at 332 E. Main St. in Gallatin, with all proceeds from the event benefiting the Sumner County Museum.
“We wanted to bring more live music into the downtown area,” Sumner County Museum Executive Director Ryan Baker said.
Tim Atwood will kick off the series on June 12. During his career, Atwood has toured with multiple country legends and has played at the Grand Ole Opry more than 8,500 times. In 2018, he was inducted into the Academy of Local Musicians Hall of Fame.
Additional performances include:
July 10: Marshall Chapman, a legendary Nashville author, actress, singer, songwriter and rock and roller who has released 14 critically acclaimed albums to date. Her songs have been performed by a variety of artists including Emmy Lou Harris and Jimmy Buffett.
Aug. 14: Jonell Mosser, a talented musician who has worked as a backup vocalist for artists such as Etta James, B.B. King, Trisha Yearwood and more.
Beginning at 7 p.m. each night, attendees will be able to tour Historic Stonewall. Music will begin at 8 p.m. and last until around 9:15 p.m.
Limited outdoor seating will be provided each night, so attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs to the event.
“We won’t be serving food or having food trucks or anything like that, so if someone wanted to bring their own food they could have a picnic on the grounds,” Baker added. “We will also be doing tastings of local beer and wine for those who attend.”
Tickets for Songs and Stories at Historic Stonewall are $20 each night and can be purchased online at www.sumnercountymuseum.org.
