10 out of Tenn's 10 Favorites in Nashville

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with a few members of the supremely talented singer-songwriter supergroup, 10 out of Tenn (specifically, members Trent Dabbs, Erin McCarley, Katie Herzig, K.S. Rhodes, Matthew Perryman Jones, & Tyler James.) We chatted about their newly-released collaborative album - an incredible and unique collection of songs sampling sounds from 20 of the group's most talented members (available for purchase here), their upcoming 10th Anniversary Show on 4/24 at the Ryman (tickets still available here), our mutual love for Home Alone and this glorious town where they all got their start over ten years ago. 

It's always gratifying for me to chat with other folks who have been around the majority of the last decade, who have seen the city grow and evolve to what what we are now - somewhat of a cultural phenomenon now known throughout the globe. At times I hate that the world is beginning to discover our 'little secret', but realize, it's exhilarating to be a part of what's happening in and to Nashville - and am proud for them to know who we are at our core.


After much discussion on the good and the bad, the Nashville of yesteryear vs. the Nashville of today - the group and I agreed on one (+ perhaps the most important) understanding: our mutual love and passion for Nashville, and the importance of respecting our past while embracing the future. Our chat concluded with a rapid-fire collaboration of our own - a list of "10 out of Tenn's 10 Favorites in Nashville," So in honor of member Trent Dabb's obsession with top-ten-lists, here we go - and mind you, these are in no particular order.
