    Willie "Too Big" Hall is an American drummer, best known for being a member of the Blues Brothers band. Hall began his career as a drummer in 1965, while still in high school. He played with the Bar-Kays band and Isaac Hayes's band The Movement. In the seventies, as part of the Stax-Volt Recording Section Team from 1968–77, Hall backed dozens of major Stax artists on recordings, including The Emotions, Little Milton, Carla and Rufus Thomas, Johnnie Taylor, The Staple Singers, Albert King and Isaac Hayes. Hall produced Hayes' last Stax album, and did percussion on Hayes' albums Hot Buttered Soul and The Isaac Hayes Movement, as well as his Theme from Shaft.

    GRAMMY Awards Recap with Humming House

    in Entertainment

    Nashville makes a huge presence at The GRAMMYs, not just in the Country category, but Rock, Americana and Alternative as well, plus several of the major categories. Matt and Shawn discuss the awards and performances and highlight our Nashville presence at music's biggest night!


    And this week's #NUArtist is Humming House! The spotlight on Nashville, with its musical values and timeless traditions, is currently bright.  And no band embodies what’s right about 21st century Nashville more completely than this quintet. It’s the way they weave together threads of Music City’s folk, soul, and bluegrass legacies. It’s in the inspirational and revealing songwriting. It’s in their acoustic instrumentation, presenting mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar and bass in fresh roles. It’s in the pleasant tension between rousing energy and nuanced arrangements. And it’s in the voices, with two complimentary stylists up front and backed by the full band’s rapturous harmonies.
