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!

Y’all… Saturday night was one of the best nights we’ve had since we took this NashLive! thing out on the town.
Skylar Lee is one of the more intriguing artists we’ve had the chance to feature over the past couple of years. Since bursting onto our radar with her 2020 single, “Marionette,” the Nashville-based producer and songwriter is an inspiration for women everywhere, releasing pop music that is fresh and exciting in a historically male-dominated profession.
Hear ‘Roman Holiday’
Our first-ever show at The Cobra Nashville brought a gritty, authentic energy befitting of the venue.

There’s magic in the mundane, and one thing is for sure: Jordan Brooker is determined to find it.

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!

The Ivins have been churning out single after single over the past couple of years, as they build to the release of their sophomore album, Conditions, due out on streaming platforms on Friday, November 19.
