About this Event
Join Gibson Garage and the Hello in There Foundation for a special event on Monday, October 9th!
From 3 - 4 PM, special guest Hayes Carll will join us at the Gibson Garage to present a workshop on John's music, sharing more about what John's music taught them about songwriting.
From 4 - 5, the stage will be open for all to share your favorite John Prine tunes. Enjoy some Hattie B's hot chicken drumsticks and banana pudding before heading over to the Basement East show!
This event is free, but you must RSVP! All ages are welcome. Event attendance will be capped at 100 people. Please note that guests will not be allowed to bring their own guitars into the store, due to the nature of the space.
ABOUT HAYES CARLL: The New York Times likened Carll’s ability to undergird humor with a weightier narrative to Bob Dylan. When Carll talks about the sounds that are in his own head, he mentions Randy Travis. That juxtaposition defines the singularity of Carll’s career: He exists in a space of his own, informed by John Prine, Tom Waits, and Dylan but also by Travis, Kenny Rogers, and Hank Williams, Jr. Those influences may have made him hard to pigeonhole, but he’s still been embraced.
Two Americana Music Awards, a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song, and multiple Austin Music Awards line his resumé́. He’s had the most-played record on Americana radio twice. His songs appear on the screen regularly and have been recorded by Kenny Chesney, Lee Ann Womack, and Brothers Osborne, to name a few.
ABOUT GIBSON GARAGE: Gibson Garage is Gibson's flagship in Nashville, and a must-see destination for players and fans alike. Tucked into the heart of Music City, the Gibson Garage is a must-see, hands-on, can’t-miss mecca for pickers, shredders and any lover of American music! At the Garage, you can try out a guitar, take a lesson, learn about Gibson's history, or see a live show on our stage.
ABOUT THE HELLO IN THERE FOUNDATION: The Hello in There Foundation is an initiative established by the family of John Prine, to honor his memory and continue the love, kindness and generosity he shared with the world. The work of the foundation is inspired and guided by John’s simple song title, Hello In There. Our mission aims to identify and collaborate with individuals and communities to offer support for people who are marginalized, discriminated against or, for any reason, are otherwise forgotten.
ABOUT HATTIE B'S: In 2006, after a decades-long career in food and hospitality, Nick Bishop Sr. tried to retire. It didn’t take. The next year he opened Bishop’s Meat & 3, an old-school, cafeteria-style restaurant in Franklin, Tenn. Folks started showing up. Around that same time, Nick Jr. wanted a break from the music business in Nashville and joined his Dad behind the counter. Soon after, father and son introduced hot chicken to the menu and began tinkering around with their own spice blend. More folks started showing up. By 2011, the Bishops were offering a variety of heat levels, and the idea for a hot chicken restaurant was born. The next summer on August 9, 2012, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken made its debut, just off Broadway. More than a decade later, Hattie B's has a dozen restaurants and hundreds of employees across fives states.
