They might have closed down our venues, but they haven't stopped the music.
We usually tell you the best places to go to hear good local music, but in light of the current state we’re in, we want to bring the music to you. Welcome to Couch Rounds powered by UNATION, a live stream concert series to fundraise for Nashville musicians.
UNATION is starting a virtual songwriter series through @StuffToDoInNashville on Instagram. We have curated a lineup of local artists who we will be featuring on Instagram Live stories multiple times a week!
Music is at the heart of this city, and we want to do our part to keep it going. The series is intended to help get these folks paid since they have been put out of work with the recent shutdowns and event cancellations.
How do the artists make money?
Our artists are going to get paid two ways:
- You can donate money to a particular night’s show through our ticketing platform. You will select a price tier that represents the amount that you want to donate! 100% of processing fees will additionally be donated to the musicians by UNATION. Of course, it is free to tune in to any lineup. However, if you want to help us raise money for the talent, click one of the links below and make a donation! Everything raised will be evenly distributed throughout the night’s lineup.
- Artists are going to be encouraged to share their tip collecting platforms (Venmo, CashApp, etc.) during their sets. They’ll give their usernames and we will allow time in between acts for you to “leave” the show, head to whatever mentioned app, and tip them directly! You can then rejoin the show without missing a beat.
So what are you waiting for!? Donate today and start getting these talented people paid! Follow us on @StuffToDoInNashville for details on individual lineups. You can expect artists like:
- Ryan Fine
- Kimberly Atwood
- Tyler Dial
- John Tucker
- Piper Bateman
- Dylan Rockoff
- Bella Raye
- Carson Beyer
- Nick Halsted
- Garrett Biggs
- & the list is growing!
If you want to be one of our virtually hosted musicians, please let us know!! We want to help as many Nashvillians as we can, and we’d love to hear how we can help you
