    in Entertainment

    It's the first show of the #NUyear, and it's a good one! Shawn calls in from the road with Nashville Underground Management's Zeke Duhon, while Matt is back at The Sound Shelter with the team's new act Viral Animal! Plus, they announce the expansion of Nashville Underground Entertainment and the new business venture, Nashville Underground Online!


    Viral Animal is a duo and production team made up of Damar “D Powers” Howard and Charles “Rokman” Rhodes, who combine EDM, Hip-Hop and Trap Pop to create ground-breaking music that stimulates a party center in the listener’s brain. With D’s infectious swagger and Rok's brilliant pop sensibilities the team is fierce and unstoppable… much like their name suggests. Viral Animal's art is not just music; it’s a lifestyle brand.


    About Nashville Underground Online


    Our name has become synonymous with great artists and local culture. The goal of the Nashville Underground brand is simple: to market and promote independent artists and local entrepreneurs. Online branding and marketing (as something our team has always done anyway) was the inevitable next step.

    St. Patty's Day with Ten Out of Tenn

    in Entertainment

    This week, Matt and Shawn talk about St. Patty's Day celebrations! They also talk about the new app OrderUp, Emi Sunshine, and their upcoming SXSW trip!


    And this week's #NUArtist is Ten Out of Tenn (TOT)! Before Nashville was the “it city.” Before there was a hit TV show on ABC and before Hollywood stars like Nicole Kidman had moved into town. Before award-winning, elite ranking restaurants and boutique hot spots existed. And long before The Black Keys, Kings of Leon and even Meghan Trainor were calling Nashville home, there was already a movement brewing outside the walls of the country music scene. Their forward thinking may not have broken headlines, but this community of artists banded together and forever changed the game for emerging indie artists. Meet Ten Out of Tenn.
