UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!

UMC20: Guess What? It’s Already May (May 3, 2022)

We’re late to the party on our annual J-Timbs meme share. Sorry — it’s just been busy.

However, one thing that isn’t late is this week’s UMC20 playlist — and we’ve got ourselves some bangers. We also have some more tender moments. We run the genre gauntlet, and we even have a Mother’s Day tune from a “Swanky Ma.”

Make sure you call Mom this weekend — after you check out what we’ve got for you below!

UMC20: Upcoming Performances, International Jams (April 12, 2022)

It’s a busy week around these parts. NashLive! has a couple shows — both in-person and virtual — and that’s always exciting. It also gives us plenty of tunes for UMC20.

That’s just part of the story, of course. We have artists spanning the globe featured this week, from as far away as New Zealand, as well as plenty right here at home. The genre spectrum is pretty well covered. All in all, this volume of UMC20 is surely memorable, and bound to have something you’ll want to replay over and over again.

Let’s get to it, then? Cool!

UMC20: April Showers Us with Fresh Jams (Apr. 5, 2022)

We’ve been waiting patiently over the past couple weeks to bring you some of this fire.

OK… so, you may have heard some of these tunes before (especially if you’ve been paying attention to the past couple editions of Songs You Should Hear). Nonetheless, there’s still plenty of reason to be excited, because you get to connect (or reconnect) with some incredible artists on this week’s UMC20.

A couple of songs are even making return appearances here, simply because we felt they were worth another spin or two. Whether it’s for the first time or the 100th, you’ll like what you have to spin below!

Songs You Should Hear: Self-Love, Relationships, and Sellin’ Out

Jenna’s taking the reigns on this week’s Songs You Should Hear once again, and it’s another exciting volume full of bops.

As the headline suggests, there’s plenty of love to go around here (whether from another, or from oneself). There’s also a lament snuck in about the lack of community… but at least we’re able to muse over it while having fun!
