    The Nashville Clean Water Project

    The largest water cleanup in Nashville history, and getting bigger all the time.



Allen Thompson Band - Wednesday

“As for Allen Thompson, well we’ve been amazed at his growth and his band’s connectedness and spirit. We’ve included one of their previous performances for a best-of anthology we’ll be releasing soon, and we anticipate an uplifting, danceable set enriched by superior songs. If Hippie Radio is looking for new artists who fit every criteria of their timeless playlist, the ATB is a perfect candidate.”

- Craig Havighurst. (Music City Roots)



Deanna Loveland - Thursday

Deanna Loveland is a professional harpist, pianist, singer and songwriter. Originally from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, she began playing music at the early age of 5 years old. Deanna kept a busy schedule of 130 performances each year before moving to Nashville at the age of 18. Her resume includes performances at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, private events for celebrities including Jerry Bruckheimer and even music ministry at the Premier Iglesia Bautista in Mexico. 




Samantha Landrum - Friday

Samantha Landrum looks like any pretty blond young woman with a bright smile and a sense of warmth. She had a sport (tennis), an activity (show choir) and a place (Laurel, Mississippi) that she calls home. But for Samantha Landrum, who found herself competing against Johnny Bulford, who’s gone on to write Lee Brice’s “A Woman Like You” in the Colgate Country Showdown Regionals at Nashville’s Wild Horse Saloon before she could drive, the need to sing overtook everything.

“When I was 13, my Dad took me to see Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. I told them on the way home, ‘Pull the car OVER!’ I’d wanted to sing my whole life, but that night, I knew... I said, ‘Whatever it takes... whatever I need to do... I want to do this!’ “I’d been singing around the family business since I was little. They knew that much, but I don’t think they realized how serious I was ‘til then. Since that moment, my parents have really laid it on the line for me... They’ve made the sacrifices for me to do this.” Dreaming big – or more importantly, outside the lines -- runs in the family.


Ashley Ray - Friday

With mental strength and focused ambition, Ashley continues to win fans over with her yearning voice and heartfelt lyrics. Whether rockin’ out with her band to a rowdy, beer-soaked crowd, or sitting in pin-drop silence at a writers’ round with just her acoustic guitar and captivating voice, Ashley’s performance assaults the senses while her lyrics serenade the soul.

Performing live has become second nature to Ashley, having shared the stage with some of country music’s hottest stars including Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, and Cross Canadian Ragweed to name a few. “Performing live is the real deal. You’ve got the band, the crowd, your best songs – it’s the reason why we do what we do.”


Camaron Ochs - Friday

All too recently, this melodically-driven, little blonde began blending the classic feel of early American music (Folk, early Country/Western, Soul) with the sweet shine of Pop. She grew up listening to classic country on her grandparents ranch in Southern California: picture palm trees, horses, a blue barn and a tractor named Big Red. Her storyteller lyrics walk a romantic line between worldly wisdom and Disney charm, and judging by her fan base this sort of thing appeals to all of us. Recent songwriting cuts include "Fall Madly In Love With You" on Maggie Rose's debut album and a song on the highly anticipated new album from Miley Cyrus!  Cam is currently wrapping up final production on her debut album with Grammy award winning producer, Jeff Bhasker (Beyonce, FUN., Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones, Bruno Mars), and Tyler Johnson (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, P!NK!).  

Valerie Mize - Saturday

Earthy yet educated; simple yet soulful; funky and fun; Valerie Mize’s music is immediately appealing to the eclectic in everyone. With influences ranging from Hometown to Motown, this Oklahoma born, NYC based songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist rubs some rootsy Red Dirt on her classical upbringing.





David Adam Byrnes  - Saturday

Authenticity is the foundation of country music, and often, is the most vital element of an artist’s success and longevity. Sherwood, Arkansas native David Adam Byrnes is rooted in the kind of tradition that audiences can’t deny. It’s in the 25-year-old’s genuine southern drawl and the unmistakable sincerity of his lyrics.




Brooke Eden - Saturday

City girl by birth, but country girl by blood, Brooke Eden brings you a fusion of country, rock, and blue-eyed soul.  Although she was born in the city, she was raised on country music and black-eyed peas and rice. "Country music has just always hit a chord in my soul," says brooke "The stories and meanings inlaid within the music have connected me to it since I was a young child." 

Brooke was featured on Season 7 of American Idol.  It was an experience that taught her a lot about the industry and gave her the kick in the butt she needed to take a hold of her dream and go for it. "My Idol experience taught me to have a thick skin in the industry and also showed me that the sticks and stones of criticism made me want it even more."


40West - Saturday

The road began with Trey Hester and Tyler Elliott meeting in Santa Monica, California in October, 2011. Soon, they began playing music and writing songs together. These good ol' boys got together and formed a band. They named it 40 West after the coast to coast interstate that brought them to California. After playing several big venues on the Sunset strip; including, The House of Blues and TheWhiskey a Go-Go, Tyler and Trey decided to move it to the biggest stage in country music, Nashville. While burning up the interstate and playing shows along the way they picked up little brother Travis Hester in Oklahoma. Driving straight into the Nashville music scene 40 West is a unique blend of high octane energy, finely tuned three part harmony, and original songs that will have your feet stomping. You’ll be singing along the first time you hear them.
