Let’s not delay. Get to it!

UMC20: Back in the Saddle (Aug. 16, 2022)

I’m back in the saddle to supply you with this week’s fresh UMC20 playlist. However, the Sheriff isn’t back in town just yet. That’ll be in a few weeks, when I make my trek back to Nashville on Labor Day.

The good news? After my Musikfest adventure, I’m back to working remotely! I’ll be checking in as usual from here on, and I thought I would do so by bringing you some new HEAT.

Embrace the heat. Listen to UMC20 below!

Songs You Should Hear… from UMC Contributor Jenna Rose!

Hey, everyone! Gerard here. I’m up in Bethlehem, PA (the cradle of UMC’s very existence) for Musikfest, the nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival. I’m throwing it back with my northern work family and pitching in with this year’s festival, which means you’re going to see some guest contributions here over the next week and a half.

That includes next week’s UMC20, curated by our very own UMC Contributor Jenna Rose! But… before we get there, Jenna is popping in to give you all a little preview with this week’s Songs You Should Hear.

Get ready for a whole lot more where this came from next week. In the meantime, I’ll let Jenna take it from here with her picks!

UMC20: Preview ‘A Night of Nashville Hip Hop’ + More (May 24, 2022)

First thing’s first: we’re going to need you to come to The Cobra Nashville this Friday for A Night of Nashville Hip Hop II. You can get tickets here as long as you’re 21 or older.

This week’s UMC20 spotlights the artists joining us this Friday night in East Nashville. They lead us off, and there’s plenty more fun where that came from. There’s a splash of pop, a whole lot of rock, and even a little Americana in there for your tastes.

Let’s go!

UMC20: Packed with International Flavors and More (May 17, 2022)

We’ve got a lot of rock tunes from across the pond in the UK. In fact, this week’s UMC20 is frontloaded with ’em!

There’s more to the story, though — there are plenty of jams from right here at home, whether that means Nashville or somewhere else in the mainland U.S. We move beyond rock, as well, to give you some Americana, soul, pop, hip hop, and even some electronica!

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: New Music in Bloom (April 19, 2022)

Spring is a time for renewal, and we’ve refreshed our UMC20 playlist with 20 more vibrant tracks of all shapes and sizes.

It feels cliche, at this point. We always try to bring you variety here, and this week is certainly one of the stronger examples of that in 3 1/2 years of weekly UMC20 playlists. It’s also hard to believe we’ve almost been in Nashville for 3 1/2 years, but that’s a story for another day.

The story today? The sonic magnificence that awaits 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!
