The iconic Station Inn in The Gulch in downtown Nashville hosts a regular Monday night show New Monday featuring a stellar line-up of singers and musicians.

Here is a run-down of the personnel on stage this night.  A wonderful band steeped in country, gospel and just about anything else good.

Larry Cordle is an acclaimed songwriter, singer, stalwart who has collaborated with Ricky Skaggs, Alison Krauss, Garth Brooks and has had a finger in the sale of tens of millions of records.  Twice a Grammy nominee, he also has won two IBMA awards.

Carl Jackson was chosen by legend Glen Campbell to join his band as guitarist at the age of just eighteen which set up twelve years on the road with Campbell.  He has sung with just about everyone – Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Dolly Parton, Rodney Crowell, Linda Ronstadt and is a brilliant guitarist, producer and another IBMA winner.

The honeyed voice of Val Storey, a renowned session singer and solo recording artist is something to behold.  When she, Cordle and Jackson harmonise, the experience goes to another level.

Then there’s four-time IMBA Bass Player of the Year and former member of the Del McCoury Band Mike BubAubrey Haynie is one of the most sought after fiddle players in Nashville having played with George Jones and Porter Wagoner.  Larry Atamanuik is Alison Krauss’s drummer, Chris Walters on keyboards plays with JD Souther and rounding off this octet is the highly talented Tyler Hall on pedal steel.

The song selection was impeccable – just a few of the highlights were John Hartford’s “Gentle On My Mind” (supposedly the most recorded song in history), The Louvin Brothers’ “Cash on the Barrelhead”, “Boulder to Birmingham” (Emmylou Harris) and Walters’ stunning original “I Live In Love With You”,  Throw in lots of very listenable original songs, feisty instrumentals and warm, amusing banter and stories and you have a triumphant mix.

AND this core outfit does this show EVERY MONDAY NIGHT.  If you get the chance, don’t miss it.
