Stars Turn Out For Nashville’s Grammy Block Party

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A big party wrapped up on Music Row late Tuesday night- a reward for a year of hard work in the music industry.

When it comes to concerts it doesn't get more Nashville than the Grammy Block party. The artists played all night long showcasing the different types of music Nashville puts out for the world to hear.

The Christian group Tenth Avenue North brought its music to a crowd that might not usually get a chance to listen making for a nerve wracking performance.

"Everyone's kind of like, just staring and analyzing you. It was cool though, we had a good time,' said Mike Donehey with Tenth Avenue North.

Nerves seemed to be a common theme at this annual party to thank members of the Recording Academy's Nashville chapter. Even for blues artist Keb' Mo' who has five Grammy's.

"I really don't like playing here in Nashville, even though I live here, because there's too many guitar pickers here," said Mo.

Grammy winner Wynonna also had a case of the nerves, because she has something to prove at this party.

"We evolve, you know. We redo things and we're not like we were 30 years ago. Thank you God," she said.

Wynonna wanted her performance to turn the heads of folks who may not have paid attention in a while.

"They're going to go, ‘what is she doing' and that's my goal. To freak the guy out there who thinks he's seen it all, done it all, and he goes holy crap Wynonna's playing the harmonica, I didn't know she played the harmonica. That's my goal." She said.

Country star Luke Bryan also played tonight and got the crowd on its feet. The Mavericks closed out the show at the Grammy Block party.
