WSM Radio debuts a new, live performance show called "WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre" taking place in Lebanon, Tennessee just a few miles outside of Nashville.

WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre is not a talent competition, but rather a showcase designed to give much needed exposure to vocalists and bands looking for their break in the music industry. A rich musical history has positioned Wilson County as an “incubator” for aspiring songwriters and musicians who are seeking performance and learning opportunities before heading to Music City. To be considered for the showcase, performers can visit WSM Online for EPK submission.
The fast-growing community is a short drive or train ride from Nashville is already the home of many country stars including Charlie Daniels, Tracy Lawrence, Darryl Worley, and Gretchen Wilson. Legendary songwriter Curly Putman, whose Wilson County property was made famous in Paul McCartney’s song “Down On Junior’s Farm,” is one of the county’s most beloved residents.
Iconic producer Owen Bradley put Wilson County on the music industry radar with his famous recording studio “Bradley’s Barn,” which catered to country and rock royalty in a relaxed, rural setting.
Tickets to WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre are $10.00 each and will be available onsite or at capitoltheatretn.com. The show will be broadcast live on 650 AM, WSMonline.com and on WSM’s free mobile app.
650 AM WSM’s first official broadcast day was October 5, 1925. The station is the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, which has been broadcast live over the airwaves since its inception. 650 AM WSM is owned by Ryman Hospitalities.
