SoundExchange is bringing The SoundExchange Influencers Series back to Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Café for an Aug. 31 show.
The fifth installment of the series will include Marcus Hummon and his son Levi, with Paul Overstreet and his daughter, Summer. Marcus Hummon is a successful singer-songwriter and producer whose credits include writing Rascal Flatts’ Grammy Award-winning “Bless The Broken Road,” The Dixie Chicks’ “Cowboy Take Me Away” and Tim McGraw’s “One of Those Days.” Levi Hummon is a rising country singer who released his first EP in April 2016 and has been named one of Rolling Stone’s Country Artists You Need to Know.
Paul Overstreet has recorded 10 studio albums and charted 16 singles on the Billboard country charts, including two No. 1 hits between 1982-2005. He also is a singer and producer who started Scarlet Moon Records. Summer Overstreet, Paul Overstreet’s eldest daughter, is also a singer-songwriter based in Nashville who performed at the Bluebird Café this past May.
The SoundExchange Influencers Series brings together music legends and rising stars to address issues currently facing recording artists, including fair pay and recognition for all sound recordings across all platforms.
“It’s important that we have this dialogue and delve into the issues musicians face,” Marcus Hummon said in a release. “It is incumbent upon the older generation to share our knowledge and experiences with younger artists.”
“We’re excited to return to the legendary Bluebird Café in Nashville for our fifth installment of The SoundExchange Influencers Series,” SoundExchange President and CEO Michael Huppe said. “The event always generates both a unique discussion and an incredible original musical experience. I think that bringing together families of influential recording artists to discuss issues facing the music community will lead to our most interesting forum yet.”
