Music City Roots is Nashville's acclaimed weekly radio show and webcast that revives the historic legacy of live musical radio production while showcasing today's broad Americana/roots music movement. We broadcast live on Wednesdays at 7pm CST on home station WMOT/Roots Radio, 89.5 FM. It's also webcast live via LiveStream and YouTube. Each show features four artists in 25 minute sets plus a show closing all-hands Nashville Jam. Your hosts are Grammy winning songwriter/artist Jim Lauderdale, Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame announcer Keith Bilbrey, and veteran Music City journalist Craig Havighurst.
Music fans worldwide know Nashville as the epicenter of country music, and Music City Roots embraces and builds on that foundation. MCR is broadcast to a global audience, not just as the keeper of the traditional flame, but as a trusted tastemaker that looks to the future of music in all its forms and sub-genres: bluegrass, folk, alternative, western, rockabilly and crossovers into rock, jazz and world music. There has never been a time of greater variety, abundance and quality in Nashville's creative community, and Music City Roots looks to put that talent on a worldwide stage.
