Little Big Town Will Open Season 2 of ‘Skyville Live’
Allman himself will also join LBT and Mahal, who will collaborate throughout the evening on some of Allman's most iconic songs, such as "Whipping Post," "Midnight Rider" and "Melissa." The episode will stream live through Skyville Live's website on Dec. 11 at 8PM ET.
The Skyville Live concert series, which is filmed in front of a live audience in Nashville, debuted last January, with a show featuring Martina McBride, Gladys Knight and soul singer Estelle. Lady Antebellum, Kris Kristofferson and Jason Isbell have also performed on the show.
The idea for Skyville Live came about at a bar a few doors down from Skyville, an artist development and publishing company, where up-and-coming acts were playing shows to small crowds. The space held about 100 people, and as the shows became more popular, their creator, Wally Wilson, started looking for ways to open them up to a bigger audience.
“In the early 1950s, history was made when a new method of television, devised by Ralph Edwards, was adapted by what would become a world-famous show called I Love Lucy. This pioneering effort consisted of using three cameras in front of a live studio audience for a television program, neither of which had been done before," Wilson says. "The same is true today for Skyville Live: Never before has a live, network-quality television-style program been broadcast (streamed) exclusively to the internet in front of a studio audience featuring major national and international artists.”
More information about the upcoming Skyville Live episode can be found on the show's website.
