The saying about live music shows in Nashville goes, “You never know who might show up” and that certainly rings true for "The Whiskey Jam," a weekly jam session for local artists each Monday night at Winners on Division Street in Midtown. Now in its eighth week, the gathering has attracted some famous faces. Chris Young, David Nail, Easton Corbin, Will Hoge and Randy Rogers have all stepped up to the microphone for a few songs. Just this week, OneRepublicand Tonic made a surprise appearance. "This thing just keeps getting bigger and bigger," says singer/songwriter Josh Hoge, who co-founded the event with his buddy, artist Ward Guenther. "I’m working on a new country record and I wanted to do something that could associate me a little more with the Nashville community. So we thought it would be cool to just play some songs and invite our friends to sit in and jam. Sometimes we know who is coming, but sometimes we don’t." Hoge also hinted that he has several big artists lined up for the coming weeks, although he wouldn’t reveal any names. Much like MuzikMafia - a successful Tuesday night weekly event that ran for a year and half - the Whiskey Jam provides the perfect opportunity for artists to pop in and play on a whim. And as for how long Hoge will keep the event running, he said, “We’re just going to keep doing it until people stop coming.” The Whiskey Jam is a free event that takes place every Monday from 8p.m. to 11p.m. at Winners (1930 Division Street). by Heather Byrd http://blogs.tennessean.com/tunein/2011/03/15/weekly-whiskey-jam-concerts-bring-in-famous-faces/
