Nashville Unplugged Returns to Mizuya Lounge at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino

Nashville Unplugged Returns to Mizuya Lounge at
Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino


Nashville Unplugged is once again bringing country music fans “the story behind the song” as the longest-running songwriter series outside of Nashville returns to Mizuya Lounge at Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song . Shows take place Friday evenings from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.


Each week Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song brings the southern charm of Nashville to Las Vegas. The complimentary show gives songwriters of some of the biggest country music hits the chance to showcase their music and provide the stories behind their famous lyrics. The intimate, all-acoustic show offers an interactive experience that allows songwriters and the audience to connect through music. With different entertainers on the roster each week, guests have the unique opportunity to see an original show every Friday night.


Nashville Unplugged has become the place to go in Las Vegas for an impromptu, country music performance. Over the last nine years the acoustic series has included performances from the writers of Garth Brooks’ “More than a Memory,” Gary Allan’s “Nothing on But the Radio” and Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water.”

Upcoming performances include:

 


Tyler Hilton and Courtney Cole:  Friday, Oct. 27

 

  • Born and raised in Palm Springs, Calif., Tyler Hilton made the move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. He released his first album The Tracks of Tyler Hilton in 2004, the same year he landed a recurring role on The CW’s “One Tree Hill.” He recently released his new single “Overtime” and is embarking on an Australian tour with Kate Voegele in December.
  • The world got its first look at Courtney Cole in 2011 on “CMT: The Next Superstar.” After the last episode aired, she was offered a full-time publishing deal. As she has pursued songwriting, Cole has opened for Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, Kip Moore, Old Dominion, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Thompson Square and more at venues across the country. In 2015, Cole released her self-titled EP and was singled out as a Spotify Spotlight Artist while The Huffington Post named her one of its “Country Artists to Watch in 2015.”
 
Wynn Varble:  Friday, Nov. 3

 

  • Wynn Varble landed his first No. 1 song, “Have You Forgotten” with Darryl Worley, in 2003. The song was nominated for “Song of the Year” by the Country Music Association (CMA). Varble has had two additional songs earn “Song of the Year” nominations by the CMA: “Waitin on a Woman” and “I’m a Little More Country Than That.” Varble’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Garth Brooks, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Montgomery Gentry, Gary Allan and Trace Adkins.

 


Danny Myrick and Tim James:  Friday, Nov. 10

 

  • Myrick achieved his first No. 1 gospel song as a writer at age 17 before moving to Nashville and spending the ‘90s singing lead in country rock band, Western Flyer. After Western Flyer disbanded, Myrick’s vocal talent led to singing hundreds of songwriter demos as well as adding background vocals to numerous albums by the likes of Blake Shelton, Montgomery Gentry and Keith Anderson before focusing on his passion for writing songs. He has penned hits such as “Truck Yeah” by Tim McGraw and “I Love This Life” by LoCash.
  • Tennessee native Tim James has had an affinity for writing since childhood. He has two No. 1 hits under his belt including Toby Keith’s “My List” and Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy.” He also wrote “All I Ask For Anymore” by Trace Adkins, which was nominated for Best Country Song at the 2010 GRAMMY Awards.


Matt Warren:  Friday, Nov. 24

  • Being a Nashville-native makes Matt Warren a rarity in Music City. His first cut as a writer was “Puttin’ Memories Away,” co-written with and performed by Gary Allan. This was be the first of Warren’s 15 songs recorded by Allan, including No. 1 hit “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” which was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards. Warren is the recipient of two ASCAP Awards for Most Spins in a Year (2009 and 2013).

ABOUT JUSTIN MOORE:
Justin Moore’s long-awaited fourth studio album KINDA DON’T CARE earned the singer his third consecutive No. 1 album debut and features his chart-topping singles “You Look Like I Need A Drink” and “Somebody Else Will.” His most recent single, the title track from the album, impacted Country radio on September 18. The project is chock-full of new music with 16 tracks on the deluxe version and skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart upon release. The Arkansas native spent three years putting the project together, which serves as a follow up to his second No. 1 album release, OFF THE BEATEN PATH. Moore holds seven No. 1’s under his signature white cowboy hat including “Point At You” and “Lettin’ The Night Roll” as well as seven Top 10 hits. The Valory Music Co. recording artist has earned multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations. He has shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr., Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert and recently wrapped his co-headline AMERICAN MADE TOUR with Lee Brice.

ABOUT DYLAN SCOTT:
A Louisiana native with a lifelong passion for Country music, Dylan Scott is the total package – a powerful singer with a deep, resonating drawl; an old-soul songwriter with a young spirit; a heartthrob with an easy smile; and a dreamer who followed his father’s footsteps to Nashville. Prior to landing his record deal, Scott learned the basics of singing and playing guitar from his dad – a former guitar player for Country legends Freddy Fender and Freddie Hart. He then launched onto the Country music scene in 2013 with “Making This Boy Go Crazy,” the debut single from his self-titled EP. His follow up, the infectious “Crazy Over Me,” debuted at #14 on the Billboard Country Digital Song Sales chart and hit the Top 40 on the Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. In the summer of 2016, his debut album for Curb Records, DYLAN SCOTT, landed in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and its romantic standout single, “My Girl,” has now been RIAA-certified GOLD, while also becoming his FIRST CAREER #1 at Country radio. Continuing the momentum, Scott released DYLAN SCOTT (DELUXE EDITION) on August 4. The expanded version of his 2016 self-titled album debut features three powerful new tracks including the addictive rush of his new single “Hooked,” the real-life fairy tale of “Sleeping Beauty” (which Scott co-wrote with Lee Brice) and the head-turning heat of “Can’t Take Her Anywhere.” Having been named one of Spotify’s Spotlight on 2016 Country Artists, fans have streamed Scott’s songs over 200 million times and counting, and sales have topped 2.2 million stream equivalent songs – figures that continue to grow by leaps and bounds. He is currently touring the country after wrapping his opening slot on Brice’s 2016 LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR.

Officially, Justin Moore “Kinda Don’t Care”

OFFICIALLY, JUSTIN MOORE “KINDA DON’T CARE”

New Single Most Added on Country Radio Today

Cover Art Courtesy of The Valory Music Co.

Rooted in his rural upbringing, Justin Moore’s “Kinda Don’t Care” proves he is nothing but 100% genuine. His new single emulates the mentality loyal fans have come to expect from him, as his Southern drawl impacts Country radio today. The title track from Moore’s fourth studio album follows back-to-back No. 1’s with “You Look Like I Need a Drink” and “Somebody Else Will” and was most-added right out of the gate making it the third single from the project to hit that mark.

Tunesmiths Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Ben Hayslip penned “Kinda Don’t Care” precisely reflecting Moore’s no-frills sensibilities. The air of laissez faire lyrics are on display with: “I kinda wanna light up a couple smokes / Kinda want some Crown mixed in my Coke / Kinda wanna hole up in some corner booth somewhere / I kinda wanna find a pretty little thing / That’s kinda like me, don’t want no strings / Knowin’ in the mornin’ that it ain’t goin’ nowhere / But tonight / I kinda don’t care.”

Earning the Arkansas native his third consecutive No. 1 album debut upon release last year, Sounds Like Nashville raved “…Kinda Don’t Care is Moore’s most diverse record yet.” The ACM Award-winning performer continues to evolve in his sound while keeping true to his traditional Country phrasing. Uproxx noted of the progression, “…look toward the album’s rebellious title track to get a real read on what makes Moore care — or not. That’s the guitar-drenched backwoods apathy I’d play on the radio, given a shot at those dials.”

An established road warrior, Moore kicks off his HELL ON A HIGHWAY TOUR next month. His fourth headline trek traverses the US through April 2018. For more dates and information, visit JustinMooreMusic.com.

ABOUT DYLAN SCOTT:
A Louisiana native with a lifelong passion for Country music, Dylan Scott is the total package – a powerful singer with a deep, resonating drawl; an old-soul songwriter with a young spirit; a heartthrob with an easy smile; and a dreamer who followed his father’s footsteps to Nashville. Prior to landing his record deal, Scott learned the basics of singing and playing guitar from his dad – a former guitar player for Country legends Freddy Fender and Freddie Hart. He then launched onto the Country music scene in 2013 with “Making This Boy Go Crazy,” the debut single from his self-titled EP. His follow up, the infectious “Crazy Over Me,” debuted at #14 on the Billboard Country Digital Song Sales chart and hit the Top 40 on the Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. In the summer of 2016, his debut album for Curb Records, DYLAN SCOTT, landed in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and its romantic standout single, “My Girl,” has now been RIAA-certified GOLD, while also becoming his FIRST CAREER #1 at Country radio. Continuing the momentum, Scott released DYLAN SCOTT (DELUXE EDITION) on August 4. The expanded version of his 2016 self-titled album debut features three powerful new tracks including the addictive rush of his new single “Hooked,” the real-life fairy tale of “Sleeping Beauty” (which Scott co-wrote with Lee Brice) and the head-turning heat of “Can’t Take Her Anywhere.” Having been named one of Spotify’s Spotlight on 2016 Country Artists, fans have streamed Scott’s songs over 200 million times and counting, and sales have topped 2.2 million stream equivalent songs – figures that continue to grow by leaps and bounds. He is currently touring the country after wrapping his opening slot on Brice’s 2016 LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Awards counts for artists reflect categories in which they have been recognized as individuals or as part of their duo or group. In some cases, an artist may receive more than one nomination which factors into their official count. For example, Keith Urban received two nominations in the Album of the Year category—one each as artist and producer—because that category recognizes both.

 

Award recipients in each category are noted above parenthetically in the Album of the Year, Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year.
