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: 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!

UMC20: The Best of March 2022

Can you believe that we’re already at the quarter pole of 2022?

It’s hard to believe that New Year’s Day is already three months behind us. Much has happened in the world since then, as it has in music.

We have a month’s worth of those musical happenings right here, rolled into a compilation that paints a beautiful picture of this wild and wonderful month. Get your fix of the Best of March below!

UMC20: Catching Up! (Mar. 22, 2022)

Things got a little busy around these parts last week, which is why we weren’t quite able to get you a fresh, hot batch of fire back on the 15th.

With that said, we think what we have for you on this week’s all-new UMC20 is worth the wait! We start off by rocking your world, before things get a bit more tender in the middle. Then, we have some pop anthems on tap before things get suuuuper experimental toward the end.

Ready to dive in? Same here. Let’s go!

UMC20: Brighter Days Are Ahead (March 1, 2022)

The sun is shining here in Nashville. Temps are on the rise. The long (yet short), arduous month of February is over. It appears as though spring is well on its way.

You know what else is always well on its way? Brand new music from independent artists near and far. And let us tell ya, we’ve got some choice cuts for you on this week’s UMC20. We rock hard, we vibe out, we get a little unorthodox, and then we bring it on home with some Americana.

This week’s playlist is what the wild, wonderful world of independent music is all about. Get acquainted below!

UMC20: The Best of February 2022

Today is Tuesday, 2/2/22. Just wanted to point that out…

It’s also the final Tuesday of the month, which means that it’s time for a recap of some of the month’s most fire jams. February may be a short month, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t packed with great cuts and, ultimately, some tough decisions as we narrowed things down for this month’s UMC20 Best Of.

Let us know how we did, when you listen after the jump!

UMC20: The Best Way to Begin February (Feb. 1, 2022)

January may have felt like it took forever. At least, that’s the sentiment among a lot of the folks in our circle.

The good news? It’s over now, and we’re on to February, which is 1) the shortest month on the calendar and 2) the last full month of winter. We can already feel life returning to the Earth and musical landscape here in Nashville. We can’t wait to see and hear what happens when 2022 truly kicks into high gear.

So, let’s kick it up a notch. We had some new submissions to consider, and we’re using some real estate here to shine a light on this month’s upcoming NashLive! shows. Through it all, we’ve certainly got some fresh finds, and they’re here for you below!

UMC20: The Best of January 2022

It’s the last Tuesday of the first month of 2022, which means it’s time to bring you the month’s hottest fire.

January brought plenty of fun to us — and not just on Sunday Funday. The year’s opening statement was a strong one, and proved that people are coming to play in 2022 — and hopefully, more and more artists will find themselves able to come out and play live, as long as ‘rona doesn’t get in the way.

We’ll remember January 2022 as an exciting start to the year. Hear why we feel that way below!
