Nashville Musicians to Play ‘1989’ Taylor Swift Tribute Concert
Ryan Adams may have been the first artist to give a complete tribute to Taylor Swift's fifth studio album, 1989, with his track-by-track re-recording, but he most certainly won't be the last. In fact, several Nashville musicians will be paying tribute to Swift and her groundbreaking album in the form of a live concert in Music City.
According to the Tennessean, Nashville-based musicians including Nashville star Aubrey Peeples, Morgan Myles, Olivia Lane, Matthew Perryman Jones, Caroline Glaser, Zeke Duhon, Griffin House and Alanna Royale will pay tribute to Swift. The local musicians will host a 1989 tribute concert at City Winery Nashville on Feb. 5, with money raised going to Musicians Corner, which is a free outdoor concert series that is held each spring and fall at Nashville's Centennial Park.
Tickets to the concert are currently on sale on the City Winery website and range from $35 to $75. In addition to playing select songs off Swift's 2014 release, they will perform hit songs from the year 1989.
While Swift may have left the country community with the release of 1989, she did not leave any accolades behind. 1989 is nominated as Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards, alongside six other nominations for the country-turned-pop singer.
Swift recently expanded her empire outside of music. She launched her very own clothing line to the public on Jan. 18, during Hong Kong's fashion week.
