John Cowan, John McFee & Friends - Album Release Show
Friday, Sep 12, 2014 8:00 PM
$38 • $43 • $53
John Cowan, John McFee & Friends perform at the Franklin Theatre just outside of Nashville, TN on Friday, September 12th to celebrate the release of his Compass Records debut, "Sixty." Cowan’s new project is the celebrated singer/bassist’s most ambitious and compelling solo release to date. This promises to be a terrific night of music with some of our favorite performers including Bonnie Bramlett, Alison Brown, Rodney Crowell, and Bill Lloyd.

John Cowan is such a distinctive singer that his sound has helped to define American roots music. Known by many as the voice of Newgrass, his soaring vocals have only improved with time. On his new release "Sixty" – his first for new label home Compass Records – Cowan delivers a career retrospective and his most ambitious project to date. Produced by fellow Doobie Brother John McFee, the album’s 12 tracks showcase Cowan’s iconic voice alongside an incredible array of special guests including Leon Russell, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Bernie Leadon, Sam Bush, Chris Hillman, Huey Lewis, Bonnie Bramlett, Ray Benson and many more.

John McFee was born on September 9, 1950, in Santa Cruz, California and began playing music “so young I can’t remember a time when I didn’t play music.” With his interest in a wide range of musical styles he seems to have found the perfect band in The Doobie Brothers. “I was a big fan of the group before I ever thought about joining them – they were always experimenting and mixing blues, country, jazz, rock – all into their own style.”

A very limited number of VIP Experience packages are available for $47 as an add-on to a ticket purchase. These will include a meet & greet with John Cowan & John McFee as well as special album release items. The meet & greet package is only available for purchase through our box office at (615) 538-2076.
