In order to play the guitar, stuffed bears must graft dexterous human fingers atop their furry nubbins. Watch glorious music that makes inanimate objects jealous with today's deal: for $5, you get two tickets to The Billy Block Show Live (a $10 value). Shows take place at the Rutledge on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m.
One of the longest-running live radio and concert series in Nashville, behind the Grand Ole Opry and Midnight Jamboree, The Billy Block Show Live struts to the stage up-and-coming musical acts across genres such as rockabilly, blues, bluegrass, and rock. The calendar is frequently updated with a fresh, chewy batch of artists, and recent past acts include Least of Your Worries––a high-school-aged trio combining the sonic DNA of the Beatles, Buddy Holly, and Cream––and Granville Automatic, whose songs tell stories about heartache, storms, horses, and heartbroken horses riding through storms.
Billy Block, the man behind the show, grew into a full-sized human in Texas, feasting on a buffet of country, Cajun, blues, rock, and soul music. Along with owning a refined set of musical chops, Mr. Block promotes country talent with his cavalcade of shows, helping new artists become new, popular artists and––eventually––older, popular artists.
