Nashville Unleashed at The King and Prince Resort

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Jack & Diane brought their travelling musical roadshow “Nashville Unleashed” to The King and Prince Resort on St Simons Island, Georgia  Saturday August 13.  They performed an amazing show; great music, with wonderful stories and laughs about songwriting and life in Nashville as a musician.  It was a dinner show, with a Prime Rib buffet to start the evening and guests’ enjoyed the ocean views from the historic Delegal Room.  The musicians performed “in the round” seated in the middle of the room, where every seat felt right up front.  Jack & Diane launched “Nashville Unleashed” in 2008 with a strong vision for a show that would spotlight Songwriters in a way that helps them to connect deeper with a listening audience.  They brought 3 talented musicians with them; Karen Staley, Julie Forester and Mason Douglas.  With their casual, easy-going style, I felt like they were playing their songs and telling their life stories to a group of me and my friends.  The songs and the stories behind them were wonderful and each of the musicians voices were amazing; from tender love songs to fun country ballads.  Nashville Unleashed will return to The King and Prince on Saturday November 19.  The links below are to each of the musicians web sites.
