We’ve had a full month of new UMC20 playlists for the first time since May. You know what that means!
OK, in case you don’t know what that means: the last Tuesday of the month serves as a month-in-review for our weekly Spotify playlist, featuring the songs that you, the listener, seemed to enjoy the most throughout the month. This month, we did mix it up a bit — specifically, there are a couple of songs on here that didn’t appear on a previous edition of UMC20 this month. However, the artists behind them did, and we just felt like keeping you on your toes with a couple surprises this time around!
Let’s get to it, shall we? Here’s the Best of October!
Listen to the Best of October
We’ve found ourselves at The Cobra quite a bit lately. First, it was for this rock show. Then, it was for A Night of Nashville Hip Hop last Saturday.
On Wednesday night, it was time for the Americana genre to take a turn — with a showcase of artists from Nashville and beyond!
Tuesday night was a chance to meet new faces and new places — in particular, we got to check out one new place called The NashVilla.

Last week was the best kind of whirlwind around here! We got to enjoy a couple of great NashLive! shows, and we picked up some steam featuring more of your music, more frequently. We even had time for some Fun -N- Games.
Seriously, go watch that episode. What a great and meaningful conversation!
With all of that going on, we’re still catching up to make sure the glorious future is just as good as the recent past. That’s why we’re a tiiiiny bit late getting this week’s UMC20 in your hands.
Nonetheless, we think it’s worth the minor wait. You’ll find plenty of that new goodness on here, as well as some tunes that hint toward the shows to come (including this MONSTER taking place at Mercy Lounge next week). There’s rock, Americana, dark pop, and way more. We dare you to dig in!

Gerard here, back with another edition of Songs You Should Hear. And this time, I have company!
UMC Contributor and Fun -N- Games co-host Jenna Rose decided to join me this week, contributing a couple of selections to our new “staff picks” series. You’ll also notice that we’re releasing this edition on #NewMusicFriday. You can expect that to be the trend going forward.
Let’s do the thing and let you feast your ears on these…
Songs You Should Hear: Oct. 15, 2021
Hear the Songs!
You may have noticed that we have our hands in a lot of upcoming shows around Nashville this month. So, we’ve crammed as many of those artists as are announced onto a single edition of UMC20, and peppered it with some other submissions and notable releases.

“Community” was the word of the day on Saturday at The East Room!
So, you may have heard that there’s a pretty cool festival happening at The East Room this Saturday. It features 10 independent artists from Nashville and beyond, and we even have $12 tickets available when you use the promo code NASHLIVE at checkout. It will also have vendors and plenty of other fun in store. Good times will be had by all.
We’re still combing through a summer’s worth of submissions from y’all, to be considered for inclusion on UMC20. We’re making some progress, but it still may take us a little while to get to ’em all.
