    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/23/2014

    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/23/2014

    It was Tuesday September  23rd in Nashville, TN while thousands of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fans were very excited to see one of the best singer/songwriters in the Classic Rock Music genre… and one of the very few rockers from that era that still releases (and sells) new music today.  Concert Blast was invited to the Nashville party with photo credentials so our friend Samantha Shrader stepped up to help us out once again to take the concert photos of Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers, since Brian Hasbrook was out of town. Thank You Sam!  Enjoy her photos…

        CMA Music Festival Riverfront Park Crowd
        As the guys from Concert Blast reflect back on the coverage performed in 2013, we thought it would be better to show you with hundreds of photographs taken throughout the year in a video segment. The year’s photo coverage began with an interview with singer/songwriter/actress Jewel from our guest blogger/photographer friend Samantha Shrader and ended with Mike Arnold‘s visit to the annual Christmas 4 Kids benefit touring of tour buses. This year also included the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival, the CMA Music Festival, and the K-Love Fan Awards,  along with numerous concerts, interviews, and CD reviews throughout the year. Enjoy this video of the Concert Blast 2013 Flashback and Happy New Year from Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson!

            Piano expert/singer/songwriter Elton John returned to Nashville, TN to excite his fans of young and old to a greatest hits concert on 4/5/2013.  Elton used to visit Nashville on every tour that reached the Southeast, but it has been a while since he’s visited the Music City.  Although Concert Blast wasn’t granted concert review passes for this show, Elton’s management did grant us a photo pass.  Our Concert Blast friend (and excellent photographer) Samantha Shrader took on the duties of helping us out for the night.  Check out her photos!

                        Nashville, TN seems to a regular tour stop for Styx as they performed in concert on Thursday November 8th at the Ryman Auditorium.  The fans in attendance were ready for another visit by one of the best live performers in the music business as they gave an excellent set at the full, but not sold-out, Ryman Auditorium.  Our guest photographer, Samantha Shrader, lent us her talent once again…  Enjoy the photos!

                            Creed In Concert - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium 7/29/2012

                            It was a hot July day in Nashville, TN, but when the sun went down and the stage lights inside the Ryman Auditorium lit up, the night became even hotter!  Creed returned to the Music City with openers Like A Storm and Eve To Adam.  This was a night of high energy hard rock.  Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson was on hand for this event, but this post gives all the credit to our Concert Blast friend, Samantha (Sam) Shrader as she took the concert photos of Creed.  Enjoy Sam’s photos!
