Singer/songwriter Shawn Lacy is just one of the emerging artists scheduled to perform in Lebanon next week as Vision Music Inc. presents "Nashville's Next Big Twang."
The event will take place at Silverado's East on Friday, June 19.
Bringing some of Nashville's top musical talent out of the city and into venues in Wilson County is a top priority for Vision Music President Caleb Brock. Brock formed Vision Music with friend, John Mires, in 2010. Their first big concert featured Aaron Tippin at The Mill at Lebanon that same year.
This past March, they presented Daryle Singletary at Silverado's.
Lacy, who is originally from Pennsylvania, moved to Nashville seven years ago to pursue a career in music. He said he is excited to play at a "new place" and to introduce Wilson County folks to his music.
"I just love playing new towns and getting my music out to different places that I haven't been before," he said.
Lacy, who counts The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Eagles as musical influences, described his style as "Americana Rock." He is currently signed with the Erv Woolsey Agency and was featured on Zac Brown's Southern Ground Music and Food Festival along with acts such as Willie Nelson, John Fogerty and Kenny Rogers.
