Join me in celebrating the Wildhearts, the songwriters and musicians who aren’t afraid to create music with the freedom and courage to be who they are and know what they want. It has always been a dream of mine to be an ally and to lift up those Wildhearts who often get overlooked. There’s a depth to the music in Nashville so come help me raise up the songwriters and recording artists of country, the blues, bluegrass, pop, gospel and jazz. Come out and be a Wildheart. See you there…..Dane
