His songs have been recorded by artists including George Strait, The Dixie Chicks, Elvis Costello, Vince Gill, Lee Ann Womack and countless others. Peter Cooper is a singer, songwriter, journalist, professor and Grammy nominee. Patrick Sylvest will open the show.
It's a coup for SAM'S JAMS, the free weekly Sat. afternoon 2-hour show I get to host at this marvelous cajun restaurant venue--just 15 minutes north of mid-town Nashville. This week will feature one of the most creative and amazingly original people Nashville has to offer...Peter Cooper. He is renown as both a songwriter/performer and a music journalist for the major paper in Nashville, The Tennessean. Let the spontaneity rule as it does every Saturday from at least. Best to get there early for the best seats. Thanks in advance for telling everyone else, too!
