UMC20: The Best of April 2022

We have to give credit where it’s due: y’all brought the HEAT this month.

This was one of those months where narrowing things down to just 20 signature tracks proved to be quite the challenge. Nonetheless, we did it, and we think it provides a healthy, cross-genre snapshot of what April brought to the table.

See if you agree, and hear what made the cut 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: 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!

UMC20: The Best of November 2021

Welp… we’ve almost made it to the end of another year together. And today, we’ve made it to the end of another month.

So, let’s celebrate as we typically do around here — by recapping some of the best and brightest tracks the past 30 days have had to offer. It’s tough to narrow this down every month, but November presented a particular challenge. There were so many unique and interesting cuts, but only room for 20. Difficult choices were made.

See (and hear) if you enjoy the choices we made below. We think you will!

UMC20: No Hangover Here (Nov. 2, 2021)

How do you follow up one of the greatest months in UMC history? By ensuring that this month looks just as bright!

There’s no Halloween hangover. There’s no stopping this train following a 7-event month, where we also continued to Keep the Music Playing here in the digital space. It starts here and now, with the first UMC20 of November.

We had some submissions to catch up on (and no doubt, more where those came from). We also allotted some slots on this week’s playlist to the upcoming NashLive! shows that you’ll soon enjoy here in Nashville. There’s pop, rock, soul, Americana, and even a few songs that will get you in your feels.

Let’s mix it all into the gumbo pot and let it rip!

UMC20: All of the Sounds (Oct. 12, 2021)

It took more time to come up with a headline for this installment of UMC20 than it took to construct the playlist itself. That’s because this one — and let’s be real, most installments of UMC20 — can’t be put into a single box.

A lot of these songs are here to feature artists on upcoming NashLive! shows, sure. However, that’s not all she wrote — we have some other fun surprises that we’ve snuck in, just for fun.

We’ll let you hunt through and find something you like. Get to it!
