Nashville Nights hosted by Michael Haney
June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Nashville Nights continues this FRIDAY with Nashville Singer/Songwriters taking our stage hosted by Michael Haney!
A journeyman musician, Mac Leaphart has filled his award-winning career with a mix of hook-heavy roots music, honky-tonk rock & roll, and salty, sharply-detailed songwriting. It’s a sound that finds the Nashville-based troubadour nodding to those who’ve come before him — John Prine, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Hayes Carll — while also pushing forward into uncharted territory, earning support from a cross-country spread of folk fans and Americana audiences along the way.
Before earning his stripes as a road warrior, Leaphart launched his career in South Carolina, where he balanced a nighttime gig as a bartender with a steadily-increasing stream of solo shows.
Leaphart took that signature sound with him to Nashville. There, he launched a recurring songwriter’s night, the Southpaw Social Club, and strengthened his own writing chops, penning songs for other artists’ albums as well as his own. Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth arrived in 2015, with Lightning Bob — an EP featuring collaborations with Sadler Vaden (Sadler Vaden, The 400 Unit) — following in 2018.

RYAN BONNER :
You don’t need to meet Ryan Bonner to get a good impression of who he is. Just listen to his music. Amidst the compelling lyricism, there is a thoughtful-nuanced attention to detail, even when those little details sometimes serve to make a song lighthearted.
In October 2013, Ryan Bonner released his second full-length record “Only When It’s Burning.” Recorded during the first half of 2013 this record finds Bonner working with Producer Joe Taylor (Buddy Miller, Emmylou Harris) for the first time; opting to self-produce previously releases, 2010’s “Monsters In The Hallway” EP and 2012’s LP,“Think of England.” LP. Taylor first got excited about Ryan Bonner’s music after listening to a previous release. “I was first made aware of Ryan by my friend, Bryan Compton, who rung me up and said ‘Hey, you really need to listen to this; it’s world-class material.’ So, I listened, and it was like listening to early Steve Earle or John Hiatt. Ryan Bonner has a genuinely distinctive voice, unfettered by popular affectation, and his songs spring from a well of keen observation and sharp wit. This is classic American music.”
Joining Bonner and Taylor on the album are studio and touring veterans Steve Holley, drummer from Paul McCartney and Wings, and bassist Sean O’Bryan Smith, whose credits include Larry Carlton, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum, as well as his touring band known as The Dearly Beloved; Jack Friel, Malin Wagnon, and Whitt Algar.
This is Ryan Bonner:
“I grew up on James Island, South Carolina. My dad bought me my first guitar for $50 from a downtown hippie….”. “I’ll be making music until they put me in the ground.”
